Secaucus, NJ, takes next step to joining county-wide vacant, foreclosed property registration program
Secaucus, NJ: The City Council voted to take the next step in joining a county-wide vacant property and foreclosure registration program.
The proposed vacant and foreclosed property registration initiative is intended to create a regularly-updated database of properties in foreclosure to help curb blight in communities and help the people in those communities diminish health and safety hazards while improving neighborhoods for all.
The general ideas under discussion are the methods for discovering and registering properties, as well as how best to encourage property owners to maintain properties to code and keep the city appraised of changes to ownership or occupancy.
A public hearing is scheduled for April 11 to further delve into the program options, as well as take public input for moving forward.
Ascent combines focused research and centralized operations oversight to create innovative outsourced solutions for code enforcement violations, vacant property registration ordinances, property preservation, and other vendor management needs from across the United States.
