The City of Monessen has a new plan to tackle blighted, vacant property, and to get more people to move into the former mill town. Monessen has posted its unsold delinquent property tax list on its website, www.cityofmonessen.com. There, potential buyers can find properties they may be interested in. If they are able to acquire the title from the current owner, and they sign an agreement with the City committing to bring the property up to code, and having a plan for the property, the City will forgive the past delinquent taxes. Those who acquire properties this way, will still have to pay taxes going forward, but this program removes a huge hurdle from people interested in properties. The City currently has over 800 tax-delinquent properties on record.
