ALBION – The annual auction of properties with several years of unpaid taxes has been set for Oct. 28. This is about five months later than usual.

The auction is usually in May. This year it was pushed back due to Covid-19.

The auction will be at a different location. It is usually at the Albion Elk’s Lodge, but will be at the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds in Knowlesville. The sales start at 10 a.m.

In other action at last week’s Legislature meeting, the Legislature:

• Approved conveyance of 5090 Salt Workds Rd. in Shelby to Gregory and Stephanie Farewell for the amount of $5,711.85. The Legislature said the sale of the property “is in the county taxpayers best interest.”

• Reappointed Tom Kuryla as commissioner of the Department of Social Services for four more years, until June 30, 2024. Kuryla has been the county’s DSS commissioner the past 10 years.

• Accepted $10,000 from the Rochester Health Foundation for the Public Health Department. The funding includes $7,750 for vaccines and medications, $1,350 for nursing supplies, $800 for office supplies and $100 for travel other than mileage.

• Observed a moment of silence for Ronald R. “Butch” Radzinski of Gaines. He passed away on July 16 at age 86. Radzinski served as a county legislator and Legislature vice chairman. He also was on the Gaines Town Board and served as Gaines town supervisor.

He owned and operated H & A Superette in Gaines for 42 years. His daughter Gayle Ashbery is Carlton’s town supervisor and son Mark is the Gaines highway superintendent.
