KINGSTON, N.Y. » An auc­tion on Tues­day of 25 city-owned prop­er­ties drew high bids to­tal­ing about $253,000 more than the com­bined taxes owed on them.

The auc­tion, in the Com­mon Coun­cil cham­ber at City Hall, gen­er­ated high bids to­tal­ing $821,214.76, ac­cord­ing to Megan Weiss-Rowe, the city’s di­rec­tor of com­mu­ni­ca­tions and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment.

In all, $567,969.69 in un­paid taxes was owed on the 25 fore­closed prop­er­ties, which in­cluded some that have struc­tures on them and some that are va­cant lots.

Six prop­er­ties drew no bids at the auc­tion, which was the first of its kind this year.

All of the bids need ap­proval by the Com­mon Coun­cil in order for the bid­ders to pur­chase the prop­er­ties.
