Bids for county tax sale due at treasurer Sept. 1
Local properties with overdue taxes dating back to 2013 will soon be going on the auction block.

Crawford County has completed its tax deed proceedings on real estate properties that were delinquent for 2013 and mobile homes that were delinquent for 2014 and prior real estate taxes. The county will now offer the parcels and mobile homes obtained to the public.

Seven real estate items and 37 mobile homes will be offered in a sealed bid auction sale.

The number of real estate parcels is down from 12 in 2016, while the number of mobile homes has increased from eight.

All bids must be in the Crawford County Treasurer's Office no later than the close of business Friday, Sept. 1.

The required minimum bid on real estate is $640 on real estate and $695 on mobile homes. These items will be sold to the highest bidder.

Complete bidder's packets and sale catalogs for the tax auction are available in the Crawford County Treasurer's office, 100 Douglas, Robinson, or on line at

The sale places the real estate properties and mobile homes into the hands of individuals who have an interest in owning them.

County officials hope the new owners will both maintain the properties and keep the taxes paid.

By eliminating abandoned properties, the appearance of the neighborhoods should improve and the value of adjoining properties should increase.

For more sale information, contact 1-800-248-2850 or 618-656-5744 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
