Property Levies and First and Second Stage Income Executions Suspended Until Further Notice
After consultation with the Civil Court, DOI has directed all City Marshals to suspend service of property levies and first and second stage income executions immediately and until further notice. This directive does not require City Marshals to suspend previously served property levies or income executions due to their ongoing nature.
