Town sells two properties


The town’s coffers are $60,000 richer after the auctioning of two properties on Wednesday. Four properties seized by the town for nonpayment of taxes were up for sale, but only two were sold: a 3.6-acre lot on Central Street near South and Reservoir streets, taken in 1995, was sold for $55,000; and a land-locked parcel of less than an acre on Page Street near Carson Drive, taken in 1960, was sold for $5,000. A 2.5-acre lot on Sumner Street near the Cedar Hill Golf Course, taken by the town in 1989, and a 10-acre parcel zoned for business off Central Street, across from Holy Sepulchre Cemetery and the Ahavath Torah Congregation, did not attract bids. Town Treasurer Donna Erickson said the names of new owners were not immediately available. - Rich Fahey
