On Wednesday night, Councilwoman Moore and the Community Development Department hosted a community meeting to inform potential buyers and concerned neighborhood residents about the Peoria County Trustee Auction Process. 

The Peoria County Trustee, a tax purchaser, acquires property though the tax deed procedure. Once the property is acquired, the County sells the property at a yearly auction.

City of Peoria Community Development Department staff brought photos of each property available for sale to the meeting with a list of exterior code violations present. Topics discussed included permits, inspections, occupancy, and what can be done by the purchaser vs. a licensed contractor.
