News Update for 2/15/24

It now will be a bit less difficult to purchase properties with big liens on them in Avon Park. City council members have enacted a program that will allow an easy-payment plan for those having to pay off thousands of dollars in accrued fines and hard costs on properties that have been in violation of code enforcement issues for quite some time.
Council members hope the program will help get those properties back on the tax rolls.
