WYNNGATE STREET ASSESSMENT – DELINQUENT PAYMENTS
February 2018 Update
Nearly half of the Wynngate property owners failed to make a payment. At the February 1st meeting, Council voted to a one-time “waive of acceleration” with a new deadline of April 15, 2018. In order to avoid further action by the Town, property owners need to either pay the full assessment plus accrued interest or an installment payment of a minimum of one-fifth of the assessment plus accrued interest. Assessments remaining delinquent after April 15, 2018 will be collected through all means made available to the Town by the NC General Statutes, including debt setoff, levy and foreclosure. Registered letters will be sent to delinquent property owners during the week of February 5th.
Based on petitions received by the Town of Butner from property owners within the Wynngate Subdivision for street improvements and maintenance, the Town of Butner agreed to make the necessary improvements and take ownership of the roads at cost and assess property owners over the next five years. Now that the improvements are complete, the assessments will begin. For more information about the invoices, why you are being assessed, who to contact for more information, etc., please click here.
