Tax Collector’s Office Launches New Webpage Marketing Delinquent Properties
The Mecklenburg County Office of the Tax Collector (OTC) has launched a new tax foreclosure web page and interactive foreclosure map search tool. The webpage contains pertinent tax foreclosure information, including the foreclosure process, and a link to launch the foreclosure map search tool.
As foreclosure is a serious matter, the OTC will be mailing notices to the owners of the properties listed on the foreclosure webpage this month. The notice will inform the owners that their property is listed online for the purpose of soliciting bidders to acquire the property through the tax foreclosure process, and how they can have their property removed from the foreclosure map.
The foreclosure map tool allows prospective bidders to search properties to potentially acquire through the tax foreclosure process. The property types listed on the map include residential, commercial and vacant land. Some properties have been assigned to the OTC’s law firms to begin foreclosure action. For those properties, the assigned law firm’s contact information is provided. Information about each property can be accessed by visiting http://MeckNC.gov/taxforeclosure to launch the interactive foreclosure map search tool.

On Sunday, Sept. 17, volunteers with the Carolina Panthers Recycling Partners will begin another year as the Panthers make their home debut against the Buffalo Bills.
These volunteers help prevent littering during football season by handing out yellow recycling bags to tailgaters prior to home games. Before heading into the stadium, tailgaters are instructed to leave the bags (and collapsed cardboard if not in the bag) at the curb to be picked up by the City of Charlotte’s Special Services teams.
Tailgating generates close to 10 tons of waste on most game days. Last year, volunteers were able to divert 113.45 tons of recyclables from the landfill (27.7 tons from tailgating and 85.75 tons from inside the stadium).Panthers Tailgate Recycling Partners include Bojangles’, City of Charlotte Solid Waste, Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful and the Carolina Panthers. The partnership hopes to increase awareness and participation by increasing communication and education efforts.

Ray’s Splash Planet, Park and Recreation’s indoor waterpark located in uptown Charlotte, will temporarily close from Oct. 2 until spring 2018 for facility maintenance and upgrades. The facility’s gymnasium will remain open during renovations.
