COLUMBUS - Highly anticipated for its potential as a source of much-needed revenue for the county, the tax sale has hit another snag and its execution will be delayed. After a pair of executive sessions, the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners decided to terminate the current contract with former Commission Chairman Robert Myers.
Current Chairman, Commissioner Cory Moates said that there are major informalities, misinformation, and concerns over the method of serving notices on properties on Mr. Myers' tax sale list. County Counselor Barbara Wright has checked with the court and reviewed the petition. Commissioner Moates said that after reviewing the contract agreement between the county and Mr. Myers, it is recommended that the contract with him be terminated and that he be requested not to file any more petitions. The Board unanimously voted to severe the contract.
Commissioner Moates said that they are going to move toward a firm that specializes in tax sales.
