Lethbridge Properties With Longstanding Unpaid Taxes Could Be Auctioned Off in April

City Council has set a date of April 4th for the auction, if the owners of those more than 30 properties aren't paid up by that date.

A number of Lethbridge properties, with long outstanding unpaid taxes, could be auctioned off this spring.

City Council has set a date of April 4th for the auction, if the owners of those more than 30 properties aren't paid up by that date.

Mayor Chris Spearman said Monday that hopefully by the end of March, the number of those properties up for potential sale will go down, however he notes sometimes if not cleared up, some of those properties have to be seized by the city and sold to pay for back taxes.

"We have about the same number of properties up for sale each year because of unpaid taxes. Usually by the end of March the number of properties on that list diminishes and most years it disappears completely."

Spearman cautions the owners of the properties on that list should try and make payment arrangements as soon as possible.
