Shawnee Co. Commission Discusses Delinguent Tax Payers

At the Shawnee County Commission Thursday morning, a 2% pay raise for non-union county workers was put on hold till the November 20th meeting.

Commissioners passed a resolution regarding the owners of 49 parcels of property who are delinquent on paying taxes. Most noteworthy on this list was the Sportzone property, located near I-470 and Burlingame Road.

The unpaid taxes, fees and interest now amount to almost $290,000. The resolution calls for the sale of those parcels unless the owners pay the back taxes.

However, legal foreclosure procedures could take several months before the property would actually be forfeited to the county.
