Unexpected $555,627 revenue increase

Chief Financial Officer Anne-Kelly Lenz brought some good news to the Board of Finance during its Dec. 20 meeting — an unexpected $555,627 revenue increase for fiscal year 2017.

“We had some cases that settled for the tax collector’s office,” Kelly-Lenz told the board — a foreclosure settlement and payment of two large delinquent real estate tax bills.

The foreclosure brought in “just over $200,000,” said Kelly-Lenz, and the two paid accounts, which had been delinquent for two to three years, brought in the rest.
