Demonstration: End Property Tax Foreclosures, Evictions and Water Shutoffs
Wednesday, June 28
9:30 AM – Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) monthly meeting, Cadillac Place, 3026 W. Grand Blvd, Detroit
12 Noon – Wayne County Treasurer’s Office, 400 Monroe, Greektown, Detroit
- STOP TAX FORECLOSURES of OCCUPIED HOMES
- DEMAND MSHDA USE FEDERAL HARDEST HIT FUNDS TO KEEP FAMILIES IN THEIR HOMES, NOT TEAR THEM DOWN
- STOP WATER SHUT-OFFS
- TAKE BACK OUR CITY
On June 28 thousands of occupied homes are scheduled to go into tax foreclosure and be taken and turned over to the Land Bank this August or auctioned off this September. The Wayne County Treasurer, under pressure from community protests, was forced to extend the tax foreclosure deadline from March 31 until June 28.
Come out to demand a One Year Moratorium (Halt) on all Tax Foreclosures of Occupied Homes and Evictions from Occupied Tax Foreclosed properties. While the moratorium is in is effect, property taxes can be reassessed to reflect real home values as mandated under the state constitution; seniors and the poor can be placed into hardship exemptions to which they are entitled; and the $240 million in federal Hardest Hit funds can be accessed to pay off delinquent bills and save homes, not tear them down.
We will also be demanding an end to the massive water shutoffs which are destroying the health and welfare of our community.
