The City of Monticello, Iowa
IN THE NAME AND BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF MONTICELLO, IOWA

WHEREAS, The City of Monticello recently purchased the fire damaged property located at 516 N. Cedar Street, same being described by the following Tax Parcel ID: 0221436004, and

WHEREAS, The Council finds it appropriate, under the circumstances, to request the abatement of all taxes that have accrued from 7/1/2016 forward related to said parcel, whether past due or accrued and not yet due, and to so inform the County Treasurer so that the County Board of Supervisors can take action to formally abate said taxes as required by §445.63 of the Iowa Code.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of Monticello, Iowa does hereby direct the City Clerk to inform the County Treasurer of the decision of the City Council to request the abatement of the taxes accrued and accruing on the above described tax parcel consistent with §445.63 of the Iowa Code.
