Cayuga County and the city of Auburn tax foreclosure auction will now take place nearly three months later than anticipated, according to the county’s office of real property tax services.
The auction is now scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13 at the Emerson Park Pavilion in Owasco. Registration will begin the same day at 12:30 p.m.
Kelly Anderson, director of real property tax services, said after filing for the default judgment of foreclosure on May 8 with the county Supreme Court, the court gave a return date of May 30. Anderson said that return date did not give the county and city enough time to post properties and prepare for the originally scheduled June 29 date. Without a signed court order, the office cannot proceed with its next steps for the auction.
