Two city lots listed as 3069 Eighth Street are being sold by the City of Biggs, not recently purchased as reported in the July 6, 2018 newspaper.
The Council voted to split the lot which was acquired by the City in 2013 when the previous owner had not paid the property taxes for some time.
The City invested roughly $67,000 since 2013 between back taxes, the cost to clean up the property and to remove dilapidated structures, so that the property could be redeveloped for single family homes. Council believed that the dilapidated blight would persist unless the city removed the blight and made the parcels usable for single family housing.
The City of Biggs will sell the property for $40,000 and more information is available by calling City Administrator Mark Sorensen at 530-868-0100.
