Commissioners give ok for fall tax sale
Jennings County Commissioners voted to hold a tax sale in September, but held out some hope that the governor of Indiana may issue an order to the contrary.

JC Treasurer Kitty Shepherd told the elected officials that it was her duty to forward a list of residents behind in three property tax installments to the county auditor. State law requires her to do this. The auditor is then "supposed" to offer the properties for sale at a public sale.

"It seems like it's gonna be a kick in the teeth with everything that's happened," said Matt Sporleder about the sale what with high unemployment, business closings and general economic havoc created by COVID-19.

Commissioners, following the state law, voted unanimously to proceed with a sale tentatively set for Sept 4, but held out the hope that the governor could issue an executive order canceling tax sales this year because of the virus' economic impact.
