A foggy outdoors didn't fog peoples' memories Thursday.
About 50 people made their way to the Thursday to pay their property tax bills, said Saukville Village Treasurer Vicki Lee, something that must be done by Dec. 31 to qualify for the tax deduction when filing in 2011.
The bills went out late this year because of a combination of state and county operations, said Port Washington Mayor Scott Huebner. Ozaukee County, which sends all the bills, had implemented a new software program that required the state to send property valuations.
The wrong numbers were sent the first time around, and the second numbers arrived late, causing the delay, he said.
The Saukville Municipal Center will be open until noon Dec. 31, and residents can make payments until that time. Port Washington City Hall is already closed through the holidays.
Residents of both areas can also make payments through local banks. Lee said about one-third of the village's payments are received that way.
Participating banks include: Port Washington State Bank, , Port Washington or ., Saukville; and Harris Bank, , Port Washington and , Saukville, until 3 p.m. Friday.
Lee said several phone calls came through today asking what time the Municipal Center would be open until on Friday, and she expects another relatively busy day of payments.
