In this case, it appears to be the city's taxes that are at issue. If there are other property taxes assessed separately (I don't know whether there are), that might throw some additional light on why they didn't get paid: maybe whoever was paying bills did pay some other property tax, but didn't realize there were multiple such taxes to be paid.
While it is true that there are City and Village (and sometimes School) taxes in Michigan as well, they are all turned over to the County for final collection. It is the County that holds the tax foreclosure/forfeiture/sale. I do not know if that holds for California (or other jurisdictions) as well.
