Borough Responds to Delinquent Property Tax Concerns Print E-mail


The Borough of Brentwood has received a number of inquiries pertaining to the receipt of delinquent property tax notifications. These notices are generated under contract by Jordan Tax Service.   At the close of each tax year, Fay Boland, the elected tax collector, disseminates the delinquency list to this company. Once a taxpayer is in arrears, Ms. Boland can no longer accept payment. If a property owner does not satisfy the tax bill by June 30th of the tax year, late penalties will be automatically assessed.


Several property owners have asserted that nonpayment was due a billing error by Ms. Boland. However, the Borough has reviewed the appropriate distribution lists and has confirmed that school and municipal property tax invoices were generated concurrently. Please note that Ordinance 2014-1233, which set the 2015 property tax rate, includes the following language: “failure to receive notice shall not relieve any taxpayer from any taxes imposed by the Borough.” Additionally note that Borough and Jordan Tax Service employees are not authorized to absolve the principal or penalties of any past due tax bill. Such amounts can only be waved through a motion of Borough Council. Should an individual appeal to Council for relief, the taxpayer’s name, address, and delinquent total will be revealed in a publically accessible meeting. Traditionally, Council has voted against such requests except under extreme extenuating circumstances. All appeals must be made in writing to Borough Council care of Borough Manager George Zboyovsky.

Playground Will Be Transformed Through Community Build Print E-mail


On September 12th at 8AM, an army of volunteers will descend upon an aging recreational facility. When the clock hits 3PM, and the group begins to disperse, the site will be fundamentally changed. With the help of a grant from nationally recognized nonprofit KaBoom!, Brentwood Borough has procured state-of-the-art playground equipment. Local residents will work to errect this structure, committing "sweat equity" that will ensure its success. The public is invited to participate in the build or to just observe this outpouring of community spirit. Once completed, the playground will serve as a safe and creative space that will allow the children of Brentwood to enjoy active recreation in the great outdoors.
