The Emmaus Borough Council was presented a lengthy tax complaint at the borough meeting Oct. 20.
Mark Fischer, of North Second Street, told council "an error in a billing address leads to over $1,800 in penalties and lawyer fees and the process was proceeding to the loss of my $200,000 home."
Fischer said the property was originally owned by his father and when he passed away the property was willed to him and the title was transferred.
Emmaus Borough Council is working on amending the rules and regulations regarding the Civil Service Commission.
Borough Manager Shane Pepe said there are four basic changes being made.
"First of all, we're moving the polygraph examination process to the background for the applicants," Pepe said.
