Collection agency Transworld Systems will take over collection services for the city of Logansport, Ind., located in northern Indiana, where city officials are hoping to recoup part of several hundred thousand dollars in liens.

The city, which has a population of approximately 18,000, issued liens totaling more than $382,000 last year,  a figure that soared from $60,000 in 2012 after officials added property demolition fees to the usual property cleanups and mowing fees. So far this year, the city has issued liens totaling $13,500, according to Logansport Clerk-Treasurer Carol Sue Hayworth.
