ALBION – Orleans County legislators have changed the date for the annual property auction from Oct. 28 to Nov. 18.

The auction for properties with years of unpaid taxes is usually in May and in recent years has been at the Albion Elk’s Lodge.

This year, due to Covid-19, it will be at the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds in Knowlesville.

The sales start at 10 a.m. In addition to the sale price and a buyer’s premium, purchasers will be responsible for the 2020 Town and County tax bill including any relevied taxes; any village taxes levied after May 31, 2020, the 2020/2021 school taxes, the 2021 Town and County taxes, as well as penalties and interest.

The total bill must be received by the Orleans County Treasurer’s Office on or before Dec. 21.
