That land held a brick building known as the Meat Locker, which the county had to pay more than $30,000 to demolish. The amount was added to the tax bill.
Excluding that one, the county was owed about $12,000 on the other properties that sold for less than the taxes owed. The auction on those parcels took in only about $7,400.
Overall, the auction brought in a total of about $548,000 from the sale of 53 properties, which was about $287,000 more than the total amount of taxes owed.
