Airdrie City council has unanimously approved established reserve bid prices and conditions for the sale of six tax arrears properties in advance of the public auction, scheduled to take place Nov. 26 at 1:30 p.m. at Council Chambers in City Hall.
“This is a typical year with a very small number of properties,” said Shannon Schindeler, manager of Treasury with the City. “In accordance with the Municipal Government Act, property owners have been made aware of the tax arrears situation and have been notified of the public auction process.”
The properties include two residential properties, two storage lots and two mobile homes. Attempts to contact the property owners to collect the tax arrears will be made up to and including the date of the public auction, she added.
The winners of Airdrie Public Library’s (APL) 2019 Poetry in Motion contest – which saw more than 50 entries – presented their work to council. The carefully-written pieces crafted by youth category winner Radwan Matar and open category winner Sholley Powell, along with four additional short-listed poems, were showcased inside of Airdrie Transit buses throughout the month of October.
