NORWALK, Conn. – Money has been rolling in as publicity began for Norwalk’s next auction of properties for non-payment of taxes.
According to a Friday email from Norwalk Tax Collector Lisa Biagiarelli, “We are down to 126 properties (including 55 boat slips) and up to $3.3 million collected as of May 30.”
She told NancyOnNorwalk this week that she expects only 12 to 20 properties would actually go up for auction.
As of Wednesday, May 7, there were 149 properties on the list for Norwalk’s sixth biennial tax sale, including 55 boat slips. There were 220 delinquent properties when letters first went out in November, she said. The total value of those delinquencies was $5.5 million; $2.6 million had been collected by May 7, she said.
Norwalk will sell tax-delinquent properties starting at 4 p.m. July 21 in Concert Hall, Biagiarelli said. Pictures of the properties were posted Monday in City Hall.
