I asked our current Treasurer as she deals with stuff like this quite often:. Here is her response.
There is a parcel in our City that was found as a remnant parcel several years ago by GIS. The most recent owner through a deed search was found and a last known address was obtained. The taxes haven't been paid on the parcel since it was found. The most recent owner appears deceased. Short of taking it by tax deed (which the County is not interesting in doing at this time) is there any other option for the City to obtain the property? It is 75% floodway and a creek runs through the property. Thanks!
