City collections up in trash, overdue payments
Aragon city clerk Sandy Norman encouraged local residents to sign up and keep up their payments for trash service after reporting that some 18 accounts paid up their deliquent status for collections.
Those payments amounted to $2,406.54 in funds added to the city coffers, Norman reported.
She said five new customers signed up for service in January as well. Norman reported that she continues to search through records to seek out any city residents who might have delinquencies. Trash collections amounted to 22 tons for the first month of the year, public works officials reported.
Along with trash debt collections, the city is also sending several delinquent parcels off to Appalachian Mountain Services for back taxes. The parcels might be up for a tax sale in September since owners owe 3 or more years in previous payments.
