This year’s tax sales in the Lake Area, and statewide, are history with properties being sold off as a way to try collecting on delinquent taxes. In Camden County, there were 729 properties put up for sale on the courthouse steps with 89 being sold. A majority of the un-sold properties, according to the collector’s office, are smaller lots with association fees attached in the Village of Four Seasons and others described as tent-size in the area around Edwards. The tax sale was more productive in Miller County with 70 of the 110 pieces of property being sold, $40-thousand worth purchased by one individual. The numbers from Morgan County were unavailable.
