He emphasiz- ed that before July 1, 1980, owners with delinquency fees may choose if they wish to continue with DMV or go on the real property tax system, in any event, they will not be able to avoid paying the delin- quency fee since those fees will become a lien against the real pro- perty if they are not paid to DMV. Therefore, the Assessor is urging those mobile home owners with delinquent license fees to pay those fees before July I, 1980, should they desire to remain on the license tax system. Any questions regarding this new procedure should be directed to the assessor's office by phoning 534-4721 in Oroville. Mexico is nudging Japan as the leading buyer of U.S. grain sorghum.
