After raising over $800,000 with the Spring Tax Sale, the Starke County Commissioners this week approved a motion to hold an online sale of the leftover properties. Fifty-four properties were sold during the tax sale, but the remaining properties will be listed online on July 5, and will be sold through July 16.
Joe Edwards of SRI told the commissioners that they are now the owners of 148 tax sale certificates, which must be sold in order to get the properties back on the tax rolls. Edwards said that the extra work from county officials paid off in the Spring Tax Sale.
A fall tax sale will be held Sept. 28.
