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.”

Tri-County Environmental Leadership Award

Logo
Mid-Michigan residents, businesses, governments, public institutions and non-profit organizations all have one thing in common, they produce waste. What is uncommon about this common activity, however, are the extraordinary measures some have taken to reduce the amount of waste they generate and dispose of into landfills. To recognize and support these exemplary behaviors in Mid-Michigan, local recycling coordinators have established this regional awards program.

Obtaining Friend of the Court Records

How to Obtain Friend of the Court Records

A party, a third-party custodian, a guardian, a guardian ad litem, counsel for a minor, a lawyer–guardian ad litem, or an attorney of record must be given access to FOC records other than confidential information. MCR 3.218(B).

Confidential information includes staff notes from investigations, medical sessions, and settlement conferences; protective services reports; formal mediation records; communications from minors; FOC grievances filed by the opposing parties and responses; a party’s address or any other information if release is prohibited by court order; and all information classified as confidential under Title IV-D. MCR 3.218(A)(3).

Confidential information also includes privileged information or information provided to a governmental agency subject to the express written condition that it remain confidential. Id. However, pursuant to MCR 3.219, if there is a dispute involving custody, visitation, or change of domicile, and the court uses a community resource to assist its determination, the court must assure that copies of the written findings and recommendations of the resource are provided to the FOC and the parties or their counsel.

The information in the verified statement attached to the complaint (required by MCR 3.206(B)(1)) is considered confidential and may not be released beyond the court, the parties, or the parties’ attorneys without a court order. MCR 3.206(B)(2).

Access to certain FOC records must also be given to a citizen advisory committee established under the Friend of the Court Act, protective services personnel, the prosecuting attorney and personnel from the OCS and the DHS (formerly known as the Family Independence Agency), and state and federal auditors. MCR 3.218(C)–(F).

If denied access, a person may file a motion for an order of access with the judge assigned to the case or, if none, to the chief judge. MCR 3.218(G).

A court may make reasonable regulations to protect FOC records and to prevent excessive and unreasonable interference with the discharge of FOC functions by administrative order adopted pursuant to MCR 8.112(B). MCR 3.218(H).
