St. Joseph County unpaid recycling fee fight now over
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY —
The fight over whether homeowners in St. Joseph County could lose their homes over unpaid recycling fees now over.
According to our reporting partners at the South Bend Tribune, the county treasurer is now honoring the views that homes will no longer be taken over unpaid fees.
Mike Kruk says he believes state law requires the county to take homes for a tax sale of the people who didn't pay.
The Solid Waste District, though, felt it legally wasn't allowed to do so.
This resolution will ease the minds of people who have refused to pay the recycling charge because they don't use the service.
