The Highland County Land Reutilization Corporation announced at its July meeting that it will be closing on two properties next week.
Mark Current, Highland County Community Action Organization, Inc. housing director, said the properties at 11540 Dundee Dr. in Hillsboro and 750 Carford Place in Greenfield.
The property at Dundee Dr., parcel No. 33-16-902-115.00, was sold for $3,700.
The Carford Place property, which includes parcels 26-19-001-049.00 and 26-19-001-050.00, was sold for $2,150.00 per parcel.
Current also said that there are two foreclosures currently in process. Those two properties are 6774 Heathermoor Trail, which consists of parcel No. 33-16-902-051.00 and mobile home No. 33-06743, and 6638 Wizard of Oz Way, parcel No. 33-16-201-055.00, both the Rocky Fork Lake area.
Current also gave new updates on some properties, which are as follows:
* Current said the property at 2596 SR 134, Mt. Orab, parcel No. 05-23-000-428.00, is currently in the process to be transferred to Clay Township trustees.
* He said a property at 453 E. Main St. in Hillsboro has asbestos in it. Current also said he had an asbestos abatement contractor and tester look at the asbestos and take samples from the inside and outside. He said the tester said that he was “pretty sure” that the only asbestos was on the siding of the property, and that if the property were mowed around the asbestos on the outside, the testing and abatement would cost less than $4,000.
* Current said a property at 12218 New Lexington Ave. in Highland has one person interested in it. It currently is a metal building and would be “pretty delinquent” because the tax due on it is $29,734.53. Current said the person interested in the property said they would clean it up and that they have the means to do so.
* Current said the owner of a property at 12206 North Shore Dr. in Hillsboro is deceased and that someone is living in a camper on the property. He said the property would be a demolition prospect.
* Current said the village of Mowrystown gave him 10 addresses to look over. An official present at the meeting tried to get in touch with the last known property owners, but they had yet to receive any responses.
Current also highlighted updates on old business:
* He said there are people already asking about the parcels of the Enchanted Hills Community Association in the Rocky Fork Lake area and that several people are already mowing some of them. He said the liens for those are spread out over 11 parcels, but that he doesn’t think that will be a problem.
The next land bank meeting will be held on Thursday, Aug. 19 at 9 a.m.
