The Oakland County Treasurer has posted a notice announcing the seizure of property at the Farmington Tennis Club, in lieu of back taxes totalling more than $5,500.
Members and employees arrived at the club Monday to find the doors locked and a sign indicating the business was bankrupt. The sign was gone early Monday afternoon, but by Tuesday morning, the property seizure notice had been posted.
No warning was given to either members or staff, according to reports. Former tennis instructor Whitney Wasielewski told WDIV-TV she saw signs of trouble, including a major Easter weekend tournament being cancelled and a request that dues be paid earlier than usual.
“There are roughly 500 people on the member email list and all of these people are affected by this, without any warning,” she told the station.
A WXYZ-TV reporter attempted to track down the club's owner Tuesday, but found her home appeared vacant and the phone was disconnected.
According to the county treasurer's notice, the property will be sold at auction on a date that has not been determined. And if you'd like to file a complaint about your dues, an additional sign on the door advises you to call the state attorney general's office at 517-373-1110.
