  • Don Vogel addressed the Board about the upcoming County Tax Sale on October 7, 2020.  We will be holding a meeting on August 6 at the Rec Center that is open to the public.  We currently have a building boom in Christmas Lake Village.  There is more construction going on in CLV than anywhere else in Spencer County.  Joe Edwards, with SRI, will be here to talk to everyone about the tax sale process.  He will answer questions on how CLV can get the lots away from the county tax sale and into a certificate or sheriff sale.  We will also discuss the county property taxes and if they could be forgiven on the lot.  If the lot would be sold, CLV and the county would then get the property into a profitable status for both CLV and Spencer County.
