Builders need not apply

HUDSON

Interested in owning property but too lazy to build a house? Has Hudson got a deal for you.

Next Wednesday, Nov. 8, the town will auction off four properties that owe more than $70,000 combined in back taxes. The catch? All four pieces of vacant land have been deemed unsuitable for building, Treasurer/ Tax Collector Stephen W. Price said.

The smallest piece of property is less than a tenth of an acre on Cox Street with $496.34 in overdue taxes last owned by Richard Munroe. The largest parcel is more than 3.5 acres on Forest Avenue with $52,865.60 in back taxes last owned Andrew J. Lane of Country Estates Realty Trust. The remaining pieces of land are .11 acres on Bolton Street with $10,128.78 in overdue taxes and 1.60 acres on White Pond Road with $7,134.39 owed.

The auction will take place at 11 a.m. in the town hall auditorium. Bidders must make an initial $500 deposit on the day of the auction and the remaining amount must be paid within 10 days.
