Corner property on Yager Road, branded as an eyesore by many, will once again be available in the upcoming tax sale in February.

An online delinquent property tax sale will be held Feb. 28 and 4437 Yager Road is one of the many properties included. The property used to be the location of Perry’s Market and was previously offered in a tax sale in 2016, but there were no bidders. Over the years, this property has caused grief for both county commissioners and the community.

Last summer, Commissioner Carl D. Bouldin, who represents that district, was adamant about getting the property cleaned up. It is often used by individuals to sell produce, clothes, and other yard sale items because of its high-traffic location on the corner of Yager and Short Mountain roads.

The property taxes have not been paid in several years and, according to county records in July 2021, the combined unpaid taxes are $7,728. Multiple liens against the property from the previous owners have been impeding progress of selling and improving the site. Nearby residents have been saying something needs to be done.

The tax sale will be online again this year due to COVID-19 precautions. County Clerk and Master Myra Mara said last year they had a 100% success rate holding the tax sale online. Along with 4437 Yager Road, there are many other city and county properties included in the upcoming delinquent tax sale.
