Notice to Owner in Foreclosure:

Before a property goes to sale, the foreclosure can be cured by bringing the payments current, if the reason for the default was failure to pay according to the promissory note. A Notice of Intent to Cure must be filed with the Public Trustee's Office (there is no cost to file) at least 15 days before the sale is scheduled. The amount necessary to cure a foreclosure is determined by the lender. The money must be received by the Public Trustee's Office by noon the day before the sale.

Public Trustee's 2014 Budget
2014 Budget Resolution and Adopted Budget
The operations of the Public Trustee office are not funded by county tax dollars or state tax dollars. Instead, the salaries of the Public Trustee and staff, the rent the office pays to the county, and other costs are funded by statutorily-defined fees for specific services provided by the Public Trustee office (see list of statutorily-defined fees). In 2013, the Public Trustee reduced expenses of the office, and -- due to the efficient operation -- was able to give Mesa County $39,364.34 beyond the money paid to the county for rent. The Public Trustee proposes further reductions in expenses for 2014.
