In just a few months, Bridgeville officials have collected more than 40% of the overdue real estate taxes owed the borough.
Bridgeville’s delinquent tax list decreased by 5% in June, adding to the 35% drop in the months prior, said councilman Joe Veruduci.
He praised borough manager Lori Collins and her staff for their “excellent work of continuing to collect what we need to collect.”
In March, property owners owed the borough nearly $116,000 in overdue taxes. That’s when borough officials announced their intention to ramp up collection efforts.
The borough sent some taxpayers final collection notices with the option of payment arrangement. If those property owners didn’t send a response, Bridgeville would file a claim with the magistrate, borough manager Lori Collins said in March.
