Pulaski County Sheriff Jeff Richwine discussed foreclosure/sheriff sales with the commissioners this week.
The sheriff suggested hiring a company to help with the sales which, he said, would save the county money. The county is allowed to charge up to $200 per sale, but the county has only charged $113 for the sale. Sheriff Richwine said the company will take care of most of the sale details.
“They’ll take the $200, they’ll give the county $100, and I would still have to post the advertisement. That would be kind of the end of it for us. They would hold the sale, they would post it on the website and then whatever the clerk does with that,” explained Richwine.
The approval was tabled until County Attorney Kevin Tanskerley the chance to review the contract. The commissioners may take action on the proposal when they meet again on Feb. 2.
