New tax collector

The way that real estate taxes are collected in Avalon will change this year, with Jordan Tax Service taking on much of the work.

The newly elected tax collector, Dennis Narcisi, resigned. At Tuesday’s council meeting, Avalon resident Lynn Sierra was appointed to fill the vacancy in the elected office.

While she will be responsible for making reports to council and other administrtative work, the taxes actually will be collected by the new deputy tax collector, Jordan. Council president Josh Klicker said that Jordan will not keep regular office hours as in the past, but will be present at the borough hall near tax deadlines. Jordan already collects other municipal fees for the borough.
