Lien strategy had been discussed at Strategic Planning Workshops in 2019. During the course of the pandemic, staff has been reviewing processes that could be brought forward to provide
relief to residents and businesses suffering financial hardships. This amendment is a result of research done by the staff that compares the City’s lien process with other cities. Staff reviewed the fines for liens, interest on fines/liens and the process used in the reduction of fines requested of the City through a Special Magistrate hearing. Staff has also compared this information with 17 other jurisdictions in the regional area. The recommendation was provided to the Commission that the 8% interest be deleted from both sections of the Codes.


Research conducted.  17 jurisdictions surveyed. Had a discussion w/Manager and will suggest making no changes to the Commission except anticipating changes to the Code to reflect no interest rate reductions. Staff has been working with City Attorney to develop the Code language to make the changes. Item presented at 8/19 Commission Meeting for first reading. Second reading is scheduled for September 2nd. Ordinance 2020-114 approved on September 2, 2020.
