After taking office only eight-and-a-half months ago, Jennings County Treasurer Kitty Shepherd said she didn't know what to expect at her first tax sale.

She was happy when the final gavel sounded.

"I am pleased with the results of the tax sale today," Shepherd said. "Our ultimate goal was to collect as much tax money as possible and to get the properties back on the tax rolls. This was a good team effort."

That "team" included Shepherd and her staff, County Auditor Kay Sue Vance and her staff and SRI Services, the firm that managed the sale.

Friday's sale produced $371,007.22 for the county's coffers. Counting delinquent tax bills paid before the auction by property owners whose land was on the original tax sale, the county brought in an extra $207,688.55. In all, the county grossed $578,765.67. The total cost of the sale, counting the work of SRI Services and advertising, was $10,585.
