A special meeting of the Oswego County Legislature’s Finance and Personnel Committee was held Wednesday to discuss a request from the City of Fulton to provide assistance with the handling of property foreclosures.
Mayor Ron Woodward said he approached the county because he learned from County Attorney Richard Mitchell that Fulton was the only municipality in the county that does their own foreclosures.
“From a financial standpoint, if someone doesn’t pay their taxes, the city doesn’t get their money,” Woodward said.
