Borough Approves Move To Bid On Blighted Properties



Emporium Borough Council approved a move to enter a bid on a blighted property in the business district.

The property contains three buildings: two storefronts on Fourth Street and an apartment building in the rear facing Greenwood Avenue.

The lot and buildings went unsold in last year’s Judicial Tax Sale and have been held in the county repository since that time. A bid of $100 was entered by a resident of Florida, but since the man had no intentions of demolishing the buildings, which are unsightly and dangerous, the bid was declined by the borough, county commissioners and the school district board of directors.
