-A A +A

Shabby-property owners will face harsher tax penalties under New Castle's new blight ordinance.

City commissioners Tuesday unanimously passed an ordinance assessing a $10 per $100 assessed ad valorem tax for those who fail to adequately maintain their property. That could mean a $5,000 purse pinch for offenders who own a $50,000 property.

The ordinance loosely coincides with citywide efforts to spruce up the tiny town and spawn renewed interest around its historic Main Street.
