Eaton County Departments
Furloughed through September
In a cost saving move due to the COVID-19 crisis, many Eaton County departments are in the state’s Workshare program and are on furlough. The Eaton County Treasurer’s offices in Charlotte and Delta Township will be closed on Fridays through September 30. The Workshare program will save the County $300,000 - $350,000. It is critically important that Eaton County maintains fiscal responsibility by taking these steps to ensure the ongoing delivery of essential services to citizens as we navigate these difficult times.
The Sheriff’s Department and 911 Dispatch will continue to operate at full capacity.
2020 EATON COUNTY TAX FORECLOSURES SUSPENDED
Eaton County Treasurer, Bob Robinson, has suspended tax foreclosures of occupied properties and businesses and has extended the redemption period for property owners facing tax foreclosure in Eaton County until 2021.
“It’s the right thing to do,” said Robinson. “The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented financial catastrophe for many homeowners, renters, and business owners. Halting foreclosures is the best way to balance my responsibilities to state foreclosure law and to the citizens of Eaton County. We need to assist our households and businesses to get through this difficult time.”
Foreclosure for 2020 will continue for properties that pose a threat to public health, safety, and welfare, and interest will continue to accrue on delinquent taxes.
“Anyone having difficulties paying their delinquent property taxes should call us at (517) 543-4262,” said Robinson.
Delinquent property taxes can also be paid by mail and online by credit card, debit card, or e-check by going to www.eatoncountytreasurer.org and following the “pay delinquent property taxes” link at the bottom of the page.
