Collection Agency To Step In To Collect Delinquent Taxes



Cameron County Commissioners and county officials are working with municipal tax collectors to ready for a collection agency to step in to collect delinquent per capita and occupational taxes. Notices will be sent to residents with currently delinquent taxes prior to the accounts being sent to collection to give them time to pay before a $25 fee is assessed. The process is free to the county.

Commissioner Jim Thomas reported that the Howard Siding Bridge will be replaced, with work tentatively scheduled to begin in March of 2018. Cost of the project is estimated at $2.8-3.2 million.

Thomas stated that bids are to go out soon, with a contract expected to be chosen in December. The bridge will be replaced one side at a time so that a lane can remain open for buses, emergency vehicles and residents to access the road. A stop light system will be in place for traffic control.
