Also Meeting This Week: Local Control Advisory Board

BALTIMORE, MD (Monday, October 25, 2021) — After its establishment in late September, Mayor Brandon M. Scott is announcing that the Tax Sale Work Group will hold its first meeting this Thursday, October 28th, at 2:00 p.m. virtually. The meeting is open to the public. Additional details, future meeting dates, and information to access the meeting can be found on the Boards and Commissions webpage

In an announcement last month, Mayor Scott established a Tax Sale Work Group to pursue long-term fixes to the tax sale process and announced plans to purchase the liens of 454 owner-occupied homes this fall, in line with the Mayor’s desire to protect Baltimore’s legacy residents. This purchase will satisfy the standing liens on these properties, taking them out of the tax sale process and allowing homeowners to start fresh with a clean slate. 

The workgroup is co-chaired by Baltimore City Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Daniel Ramos and Executive Director of Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) Baltimore Daniel Ellis. Membership includes internal and external stakeholders key to the City’s tax sale process.

As announced earlier this month, the Local Control Advisory Board will hold its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Meeting details are also available on the Boards and Commissions webpage.
