From The Colorado Springs Independent (Pam Zubeck):
Those who’ve thumbed their noses at Colorado Springs’ bills for stormwater controls could see a tax lien slapped on their property within a month or so.
The list headed for tax lien includes 110 non-residential tracts. No residential billings have yet exceeded the $200 threshold the city set for tax lien procedures.
City stormwater manager Rich Mulledy says he expects several commercial accounts to be made current within weeks, voiding a need to certify tax liens on those…
A tax lien means the bill will be attached to the annual property tax bill for payment to assure the city gets its money.
Mulledy notes the number of delinquent accounts represents less than 1 percent of all billings.
