Absent Property Registration Information

The Curry County Board of Commissioners adopted ordinance 20-01 ‘Property Registration Ordinance’ In March of 2020, the ordinance became effective July 1, 2020, and affects your property in Curry County to control blight and offset the expenses associated with properties where the owner is absent.

The multiple property collection issues that were brought to Code Enforcement in 2020 and the Pandemic, put the dispensation of 2021 on hold for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. We are starting the program back up in the 2022-2023 fiscal year after addressing the issues.

The Board of Commissioners in February 2022 approved a way to collect on multiple properties. If the owner owns multiple properties that are adjoined, then the owner will only need to pay one registration fee. If the properties are not adjoined, each property will need to pay a registration fee.

An online registration form (including payment portal, fees of 2.65% for Credit Cards and $1.50 for e-checks) is available via the link in the blue boxes to the left under or click here.  Out of County Property Owner Registration Online Form.
