The Custer County delinquent property tax sale took place in the courthouse this past Friday, Nov. 22. Out of 196 properties originally listed for sale as a result of unpaid property taxes, 105 ultimately were offered along with one county-held property. According to County Treasurer Virginia Trujillo, 53 people attended and 20 were new bidders.
The highest bidder was Roland Smith of Virginia, who bid a total of $9,404.52. Smith also purchased the most schedules, 18 in total. The highest premium was paid by Richard L. Downey of rural Westcliffe at $375.
The total actually collected from the sale was $50,367.27. The total premium bids totaled $6,395, with the average premium totaling $60.90.
Last year 179 properties sold, with a total tax amount of $59,423.19 and a premium total of $12,200.
"We had quite a bit less to sell this year," said Treasurer Virginia Trujillo, "so we made half as much as we did last year."
