County wrong on Frontier Town sale

To the Editor:

I have been a resident of Essex county all my life. An auction should speak for itself. The sale goes to the highest bidder. George Moore, in good faith, bought a piece of property in a previous tax sale. When the new tax sale was announced, George traveled to look at the properties being offered for sale. George attended the next tax sale as he had done before. He had the highest bid for the property under consideration. There was no notice about sales not being final. The right thing to do would be stand by your obligation to be fair with your taxpayers. George should be sold the property as any tax auction normally insures. In case this goes to court and appeals, the Town of North Hudson should be paying all court costs. This is not an Essex County expense. It is a North Hudson Expense.
