CANTON — St. Lawrence County sold 119 properties at an auction Saturday at Lockwood Arena in Ogdensburg, bringing in $765,000.

Back taxes on the properties totaled $660,000, not including interest and penalties, so the county made a $105,000.

However, it had budgeted to make $200,000 on the auction, so it will not contribute to an emaciated environmental restoration fund, which has about $50,000 remaining in it.

The county’s auction book started with 232 properties, but owners were able to redeem their parcels up to a day before the auction.

Some of the parcels went for as little as $50, county Treasurer Kevin M. Felt reported to the Board of Legislators.
