Questions on city’s bids


TILTON — Editor:

After reading that the City of Danville purchased multiple properties for back taxes, I have several questions:

Were others bidding against the city? If so, why didn’t the city let them have the bid? The property would still be liable for taxes and if the city has them, who would pay the taxes ?

Why did the city buy them?

With all the corruption going on with our government, makes one wonder who/what will happen to the properties? Will someone just “inherit” them?

How many other properties does the city — or should I say the taxpayers — own?

I think there should be a lot of questions people need to ask and more information given to the people. Come on people, care about what is going on locally.
