McCOOK, Nebraska -- Red Willow County, Nebraska, county attorney Paul Wood told county commissioners Monday morning he plans foreclosure sales most likely in April.
Commission chairman Earl McNutt and county treasurer Marlene Garcia each said they've had inquiries about purchasing properties whose owners haven't paid their real estate taxes or assessments for at least two years.
McNutt said, "We need to get some foreclosures wrapped up and taken care of."
McNutt called some of these properties, "bottom-of-the-well," while Wood said some are "odd little triangles here, or weed-grown lots there." They're not properties eagerly sought in tax sales, he said.
Garcia told commissioners that "often the bid is not enough to pay the taxes. There are not a whole lot of taxes, but they're on the tax rolls, and they just need to be paid."
Wood said he will complete the proper title research, filing and publication in preparation of the sales.
