>FYI – Tuesday’s Middletown Tax Lien Sale Went On Despite Snow Emergency

>For those that my be interested in knowing (as I was), Tuesday’s tax lien sale in Middletown happened as planned despite the snow emergency that was declared by our Mayor.

So while residents were busy trying to get out of their driveways and streets in order to get to work on time or make it out for bread and milk, Town Hall was plowed clean and was accessible to those that braved the elements to participate in the sale.
I was told that the sale went well but didn’t finish until after 5 pm due to the conditions outside. Evidently the sale started a little late but went on without a hitch afterwards. I didn’t ask how much was collected but the woman I spoke to said that they were happy with the outcome.
So the moral to the story as they say is “The show must go on”.
It doesn’t matter whether or not streets are plowed or basic services are provided for the safety of area residents. What matters is as long as the Town gets it’s share of the pie, nothing else matters.
Maybe the tax sale could have been postponed for a day or so and those resources used to clear out Town Hall, could have been better utilized digging the Town out from under all the snow.

  1. >As for Town Hall being plowed clean, I'm afraid I have to disagree with that statement: they did a LOUSY job plowing that lot! They could've done a much better job than they did. I hope it doesn't snow again for a LONG time!

  2. >Gotta love it….these buffoons can't serve those of us who pay our taxes and sewage fees…just want to hit on those having difficulty paying.Maybe they should worry about opening the roads so EVERYONE can go to work.REMEMBER WHEN YOU GO TO THE POLLS AND USE SOME COMMON SENSE FOR A CHANGE BEFORE YOU PULL THAT LEVER !!!
