City's tax arrears list nearly cut in half to about 120 properties

Nearly half of the properties that were two years behind paying taxes a month ago have managed to at least partially catch up.

The city’s list of properties for which the 2012 or 2013 taxes haven’t been paid included about 220 when the list was released at the beginning of the year.

The most recent tax arrears list, which is released weekly, shows that has been reduced to about 120 properties.

Those properties face increasing fines and penalties as the year goes on, with the ultimate fate being a tax auction in October. That is rare, although two properties were auctioned off last year.

The city’s tax arrears list has drawn plenty of attention in the past few years, with homes and businesses linked to the mayor and the former city manager making appearances.

The current list features properties that owe as little as $10.30 (for a vacant lot at 702 Franklin St.) and as much as $281,887.85 (for the Shape Foods plant on Victoria Avenue East).

The full list is posted on the city’s website, brandon.ca.
