The auction of properties in Rarity Ridge subdivision could be a good thing for Roane County.
The county’s back-tax attorney, Dick Evans, said buyers will be obligated to pay any unpaid property taxes on the property.
Those taxes, which together add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, have gone unpaid for years.
“The taxes will be paid,” Evans said. “That’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but they will be paid.”
