That is correct, the lien and the (collecting of funds / forcing a sale) are two different parts of the process.

Lot's of towns don't rush this process, if they know that the property has equity, however it will cost a ton of money to settle up with the town as the interest penalties are very very steep. The longer you wait the more they make and they know that.
