Cook County Commissioner Earlean Collins demanded that the Delinquent Tax Listings contained in this edition of THE AUSTIN VOICE and THE GARFIELD-LAWNDALE VOICE be published in the largest circulation African American owned weekly newspapers published in West Township to ensure that all area property owners have access to this vital information.
Commissioner Collins says it is appropriate and proper for these notices to be available to everyone and that they should be published in local newspapers with roots in the community. “That is what I advised the County Treasurer and I am extremely pleased that she took my advice,” Collins said. “This is information that, if not readily available in the major community newspaper, could cost a property owner his home,” she stated.
The Delinquent Tax Listings contain the real estate parcels by address, PIN number, and amount of property taxes due, plus the auction schedule and rules for bidding to buy the delinquent taxes.
