Now Pay Delinquent Real Property Taxes Online
Eaton County Treasurer, Bob Robinson, announced this month that Eaton County property owners have a new and convenient way to make delinquent tax payments.  The treasurer’s office has contracted with Official Payments, a leading provider of electronic payment solutions to offer delinquent tax payment processing over the Internet through credit card and debit card transaction.  Visa, Discover, and MasterCard debit and credit cards will be accepted. This new service offers taxpayers a fast and efficient way to pay online and reduces manual processing time in the treasurer’s office.

“Through a unique partnership with Official Payments and BS&A Software, taxpayers can get online, pay, and process their delinquent tax payments instantly, in real time,” said Robinson.  “This is part of our ongoing work to increase efficiency in the treasurer’s office.  It can also help folks avoid last minute additional fees and interest on their past due real property taxes.”

Grant Program

Eaton County Historical Commission

Historical Grant Program

2013
  

The Eaton County Historical Commission will be awarding grant monies to individuals or organizations that show or communicate historical elements through film, oral records or printed material to the citizens of Eaton County and beyond. Consideration will also be given to the restoration and preservation of historical sites, structures and artifacts of Eaton County. Awards will be given to the projects with greater long term historic value and those that most benefit the community.

 

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this program is to award public funds, budgeted by the Eaton County Historical Commission, to citizens and organizations within Eaton County to promote, restore or preserve the heritage of Eaton County, Michigan.

 

WHO CAN APPLY?

Any citizen or group of citizens from Eaton County, Michigan, and non-profit organizations registered to operate within Eaton County, Michigan, may apply for a grant from the Eaton County Historical Commission.

 

AWARD CRITERIA:

The commission will award up to $3,000 in 2013, with individual grants not to exceed $1,000. Awards can only be made during and for the current fiscal year; they can not be made for past or future years. Grants must be used to complete the proposed project within one year. If the proposed project can not be completed during that time period, an extension may be awarded with a written request from the applicant. If the grant award does not cover the total cost of the proposed project, applicants must raise the needed funds prior to any cash award from the commission. A follow up report must be given to the commission outlining the completed project. If the commissions funded portion of the project is unable to be completed in one year, the recipient must apply for an extension or return the original grant allocation.

 

SCHEDULE:

Application Deadline- The deadline for submitting grant applications is April 15. Each grant applicant must submit a completed, original, signed copy of the application to the Eaton County Historical Commission by the deadline to be considered for the current fiscal year. Grant applications not approved and those not received by the deadline must be resubmitted if they wish to be considered the following year. All submitted material will become the property of the Eaton County Historical Commission and will not be returned.

 

Review Period- A grant program subcommittee, consisting of at least two members of the Historical Commission, will be appointed during March meeting of the Historical Commission. The subcommittee will review all applications and submit recommendations to the commission at the May meeting.

 

Approval Meeting- The Grant Program subcommittee will give their recommendations during the May commission meeting. Each application will be individually discussed and voted on. Approval for a grant will be determined by a majority vote of the commission members present. If a quorum can not be established at the May meeting, the vote will be rescheduled for the next regular scheduled meeting.
