The Treasurer-Tax Collector's Department typically conducts property tax auctions every other year. Our last auction was in June 2010. Originally, 77 parcels were eligible to be sold at the auction but many were redeemed prior to the sale. Of the 32 parcels offered at the tax auction, 20 were purchased.
