Sewer Company tax sale scheduled for this year

The Sewer Department will be sending out a courtesy notice in bills mailed in February that will notify customers that a tax sale is scheduled for this year.
Assistant Town Finance Director Mona Helterline made the announcement at the Water and Sewer Commission meeting on Monday, Jan. 13. Helterline said that accounts in arrears will receive the more formal 90 day notice in April.
This year’s tax sale is scheduled for July 24, 2020, Helterline said. Although customers can get up to date on their bills as late as the day before the tax sale takes place, customers who are in arrears will start to incur charges once the 90-day notice is issued.
“It’s not in anybody’s interest to incur all those fees,” said Helterline.
An advertisement listing the names and properties in the tax sale will be placed in the June 27, 2020 edition of The Block Island Times, Helterline said.
