Update…LBTS…Goes That Extra Mile…

LBTS- CODEĀ  COMPLIANCE DID THEIR HOMEWORK….

Readers may recall a post about the recent Sentinel news story dealing with towns stuck with maintaining foreclosed properties which meant they were paid for by the taxpayers…The article revealed that LBTS had a dozen such properties…but our Town was able to have the banks pay to maintain them…..Quite a feteĀ  and a savings for our residents…This writer contacted the Town to give them a big thumbs up for a job well done…and asked how they accomplished what the other towns did not…

Today I heard back…Our Development Department took the time to research the mortgages…thus finding the banks that were attached to these properties and made contact and arrangements for them to pay for the upkeep of the property…as they should…

I am told in other towns the code enforcement officers go by the properties in question…slap them with a “red tag” and move on…The scenario offered was that the banks attached to the properties are most likely to be out of state leaving the situation to further deteriorate and making it necessary for the towns to take on resolving the problem…

In the past we had approximately twelve… as stated above and in the article…There were four others that we maintained while going through the lien process…and as of today…all have been settled and we as a town have no properties requiring town services to maintain them…

Nice to know…

more to come…
