Tax-forfeited four-acre site moves close to possible auction for home or farming

Reed Anfinson

As Swift County prepares to possibly auction off a parcel of land that was tax forfeited, it must first classify it as conservation or non-conservation land.

This year the one parcel of land in the county that is moving toward being auctioned off is a 4-acre farmstead site in Section 10 of Shible Township, Property and Public Services Director Joe Tschida told the county board of commissioners at their May 16 meeting.

It would be considered a conservation parcel if the board decided that it would best serve the county’s interests left in a natural state. It might become wooded lot.

A non-conservation designation would allow it to be sold and used for whatever purpose the buyer intended if it meets county codes.
