City col­lec­tions up in trash, over­due pay­ments

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL -

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.
