52 county-owned properties bid on in Uniontown
Fayette County received offers on 52 of 103 properties it offered for sale through a public auction held Tuesday.
Jim Hercik, chief assessor, said the total amount bid on all 52 properties is $10,025. In many cases, properties went for the minimum bid of $50, Hercik said. The most that was bid on a single property was $3,000 for a house and garage on Mill Street in Menallen.
All of the properties that were offered for sale are county-owned. The county took ownership after the properties failed to sell at upset and free-and-clear tax sales.
Hercik said county commissioners must approve the bids before they are deeded over to the successful bidders. The 51 properties that did not sell will be offered for sale again later this year, he said.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
