Flagler County 2015 Delinquent Tax List Looks Pretty Much Like the 2014 List

#1 Unfinished Vista Par condominiums in Grand Haven. #2 Grand Haven Golf Course. #3 Bobby Ginn’s Island Estates Home. Plus Matanzas, Pines and Cypress Golf Courses.

PALM COAST, FL – May 14, 2016 – You may have noticed your Wednesday News-Journal was a little heavier than usual. The News-Tribune insert included Flagler County’s officially advertised list of delinquent 2015 property taxes. These taxes became delinquent April 1, 2016. An on-line Tax Certificate Sale for listed properties began May 9, 2016. The Sale closes June 1, 2016.

A Tax Certificate, when purchased, becomes an enforceable first lien against the subject real estate. The certificate holder is actually paying the taxes for a property owner in exchange for a competitive bid rate of return on his investment. In order to remove the lien, the property owner must pay the Tax Collector all delinquent taxes plus accrued interest, penalties, advertising fees and sale costs.

Delinquent taxes, including accrued interest, penalties and advertising fees may be paid by cashier’s check, certified check, cash or money order, prior to the Tax Certificate Sale closing.

Here is this year’s top ten Flagler County Property Tax delinquencies. The delinquent tax amount includes, where appropriate, Non-ad Valorem Assessments, typically issued by Community Development Districts (CDD).

    Origins of Palm Coasts’ Four Sisters Golf Clubs

    For the newer Palm Coasters – Below is one Official Document about the origins / heritage / history of The Palm Coast Project. Note references to the ‘ Four Sisters ‘ Golf Courses – that is Palm Coast Golf Club later known as the Palm Harbor Golf Club, the Pine Lakes Golf Club, and the Cypress Knoll Golf Club. This was also advertising promo’s used on three Continents of the World.

    This document is one of many documents which are ‘ Exhibits ‘ within the Official Federal Records of the United States of America pursuant F.T.C. C-2854 and the Federally ORDERED ‘ 15 Year Compliance Report ‘.

    Prospective buyers were required to take and participate in an Official Guided Tour to view the Amenities / features / acreage being offered within the ‘ Communities of Palm Coast ‘, subdivided to ‘ Sections ‘. At one time S&H Green Stamps were offered to purchasers. Each Section within each ‘ Community of Palm Coast ‘ had various Amenities / Features / Acreage and varying ‘ Completion Dates ‘. The varying Completion Dates gave prospective buyers the opportunity to purchase a parcel / shelter unit in the year they needed; also offered was buying on time payments atypically 10 years of payments.


    A related Feature of the Palm Coast Community of Palm Harbor, Section-C – Emergency Services Building Firehouse #22:
    For me, I firmly believe our Firefighters need ‘ Tradition ‘. They have few now. I just wrote the City Council and asked for a Historical MARKER to be applied for for that location to give ‘ Tradition ‘ to our Firefighters. There may be two things happening – a MARKER could be applied for because of the Mid-Century Facade/design and also the origins and importance of this historic building. If during the upgrades the facade is maintainted intact that would be in the Application Process along with its’ origin, heritage and history. That would give ‘ Tradition ‘ …if the facade is damaged that still would be o.k. most probably and a MARKER applied for based on the Origins/heritage / History.

    Also, many may have read statements from the Mayor that the County owes us a Firetruck. When we are finally reimbursed for this perhaps the monies can be used to try to find the original Levitt / I.T.T. Firetruck or a facsimile of it. Acquiring this vintage Firetruck would give our Firefighters more Tradition.

    For me, my many grand children would be in shock to see this vintage bright and shiney Firetruck; if they are able to touch it…if they are able to ride in it…it would be as good as Christmas for them. To have this to be available for Events for Palm Coast would be even more outstanding – Vintage Firetruck Event entry for Palm Coast –

    This would give ‘ Tradition ‘ to our Firefighters – They put their lives on the live everyday for us. To me our Firefighters deserve this. I can only hope they are not ignored and this opportunity to give Tradition is pursued for our Firefighters. Thank you.
