Van Buren County Treasurer Trisha Nesbitt Holding Meetings On Foreclosure Help

Van Buren County Treasurer Trisha Nesbitt is planning to hold several meetings in early March around the county to help homeowners avoid foreclosure for unpaid 2017 property taxes. Nesbitt will be at the Van Buren District Library Covert Branch on Thursday, March 5 from 10 a.m. to noon; the Hartford Public Library on Monday March 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and then the Van Buren District Library Bangor Branch on Friday, March 13 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. She adds anyone interested in the hardship extension program can drop by her office at 219 East Paw Paw Street in Paw Paw every weekday during normal business hours. If taxes from 2017 and prior years are not paid on or before March 31, 2020, the property will be foreclosed, and the Treasurer’s office will be unable to assist residents in keeping their home.
