A Cayuga County mobile home park is being put up for auction following its seizure from a previous owner in 2021.
Locust Meadows, located in the Town of Fleming, sits on a 7.8-acre property that was seized by the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office after its owner failed to pay $55,000 in fines, according to The Citizen. The judgement was issued in September of last year.
The property will be auctioned off the the highest bidder on Thursday, March 10 at 10 a.m. at the Cayuga County Courthouse.
The auction marks the end of the property ordeal dating back to 2018. The fines issued then were related to Locust Meadows violating state laws by failing to monitor and provide adequate drinking water to its residents. The Cayuga County Health Department issues boil water orders in June and November 2018, but property owners never followed up. The orders remained in place for three years.
