Property Tax Memo from Calhoun County:

Monday, June 1, 2020

Calhoun County Treasurer's
COVID-19 Hardship Extension Application

Homeowners unable to pay 2017 property taxes should contact the Calhoun County Treasurer's Office regarding the Hardship Extension Application. This simple application provides information necessary to develop a repayment plan for owed taxes. Calhoun County Treasurer Brian Wensauer hopes this accessible application will assist homeowners who are struggling financially.

"We know that many residents are struggling to pay bills during the COVID-19 pandemic. Individual homeowners who are worried about paying 2017 taxes before the Monday, July 20 deadline should contact our office immediately. Our staff is ready to work with individuals to find solutions for payment of property taxes," Wensauer said.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an Executive Order in March extending the property tax payment deadline to 30 days after the State of Emergency Order is expired. The new date to avoid foreclosure in Calhoun County is Monday, July 20. If individual homeowners do not have the 2017 tax year paid in full by July 20, 2020, the property will foreclose on Tuesday, July 21, 2020.

Even for unoccupied property and vacant land, the recent Executive Order provides an opportunity for extension on property tax payment, as well.

Homeowners unable to pay 2017 property taxes by Monday, July 20 should fill out a one-page COVID-19 hardship extension application. The form is available as a fillable PDF in this press release, as well as on the Calhoun County Treasurer's Office website, under Property Tax Assistance. The application can be filled out digitally or by hand, and then should be returned to the Treasurer's Office by mail or email for processing. A member of the foreclosure prevention team will reach out after it is submitted to set up an appointment.

Names Embroidered on Quilt

Sonoma Home Worker’s Society Quilt

This quilt was a prize for a fundraising raffle in 1915 by the Sonoma Home Worker’s Society.

What makes this quilt unusual is that each of its twenty golden sunbursts, have over 300 hand embroidered names stitched on the rays and centers of the sunbursts.  With the purchase of each ten cent raffle ticket, a name was stitched on a petal.  There is no record of how long it took to sell the tickets or the amount of time it took to complete the project.

Lon and Lou Ann Grover donated the quilt to the Battle Creek Historical Society.  Lon’s grandmother and great grandmother, Fern M. Quick and Myrtle Quick, were two of the quilt’s embroiderers and their names appear stitched on the quilt. When the drawing was held for the quilt, Lon Grover’s grandfather, Howard Grover, was the winner.  

The Historical Society has graciously loaned this quilt to Leroy Township for display.
