Forfeited land up for auction
Michael Sibbersen, county auditor, said there are 51 parcels listed for sale but some parcels could be dropped from the list if the owners pay delinquent taxes.
The parcels are located in 17 jurisdictions: Lake Twp., Bairdstown, Portage Twp, Bloomdale, Millbury, Risingsun, Bloom Twp., Milton Twp, Rossford, Bowling Green, North Baltimore, Walbridge, Cygnet, Perrysburg, Weston, Jerry City, and Perrysburg Twp.
The former Smith Foundry lots in North Baltimore and former Bloomdale Lumber Co. lots are on the list.
Registration for the sale will begin at 9:30 a.m. Successful bidders will receive an auditor’s deed for each parcel, giving clear title. There is a fee for the deed and transfer. Federal tax liens, however, may not be extinguished.
The database includes a pension calculator that estimates each worker’s yearly pension based on a 30-year career.
According to the data, total gross wages for employees grew more than 41 percent 2004 to 2009.
The commission added 191 new employees during that time – an increase of about 20 percent. The number of employees receiving more than $100,000 in pay increased from four to 12.

The hearing will start at 7 p.m. and be held at the township hall, 21030 W. Toledo St., Williston.
The road will be closed 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday to motorists. It will be open to emergency vehicles and bus traffic.
The Port Clinton Fire Department, North Central EMS District, Port Clinton Police Department, and Magruder Hospital will also participate in the exercise, which will test the county’s plans for handling contaminated victims, communication between responders and the public, and managing resources for emergency situations.
Visitors to Magruder may see fire trucks and ambulances near the emergency room entrance where a decontamination zone will be set up but the hospital will remain open throughout the exercise.
