Call to Order Mr. Jordan called the meeting to order at 6:30pm
Tax Deed Correction
Map 9 Lot 96 and Map 9 Lot 96-T
Mrs. Pinard stated that after consultation with the Town Attorney it was advised the Town rescind the previous motion from last week regarding the acceptance of the Tax Deed from the Tax Collector for the Map 9 Lot 96.
The reason being that as the discussion progressed that evening Map 9 Lot 96-T was added into the discussion and was unclear what was tax deeded and what was not. The Town Attorney has advised that the Town can accept both tax deeds for Map 9 Lot 96 and Map 9 Lot 96-T even after the Tax Collector stated her concerns regarding notification to the owners. The Town Attorney stated that regarding Map 9 Lot 96-T it can be deeded to the Town but it would only still contain the interest of the owner who was properly notified of the lien in 2014. That owner had been notified properly for both the land and trailer. The other owner would still hold a ½ interest to the trailer but that that Town could still sell it disclosing that there is still a party holding ½ an interest in it.
The Town could also wait to tax deed Map 9 Lot 96-T until next year when both owners will have been properly notified pending that tax liens are still existing on the trailer.
A motion was made by Mr. Jordan and seconded by Mr. Millette to rescind the motion from Tuesday April 4, 2017, that read “A motion was made by Mr. Millette and seconded by Mr. Jordan to take the deed for the property located at Map 9 Lot 96.” Motion Passes.
A motion was made by Mr. Jordan and seconded by Mr. Millette to accept the Tax Deed from the Tax Collector for Map 9 Lot 96 for the land only. Motion Passes
