I knew it was going to be a challenge when I read on Friday that the City was on the verge of taking title to West Main Street warehouse sold two years ago at tax sale and not redeemed by the deadline..
The building is full of stored cars from GIs and now the building's owner is telling city staff they didn't know taxes were due and want to buy it back for what was owed.
The property and seven others will likely be sent to auction when vacant, although City Council can do what it wants. However, passing through public ownership even for a day obviates previous non government liens. Remember that laundromat a few years back.?
