This is the first time I've heard of municipal liens on foreclosures so it's good to know. I know mechanical liens can transfer to the new owner. The bank owned the home before you and after the delinquent owner. It doesn't make any sense to me that they could hold your feet to the fire for someones debt and try to pass it on down the line like that. With a mechanical lien it kinda makes sense because you may be enjoying all the new construction upgrades to the home that did not get paid for by the previous owner. Paying for water you did not use is another thing. I would go back to the title company and the bank then the city or water company.
