CASS LAKE- The Cass County Board of Commissioners met this week. At the meeting, they discussed the five foreclosures in the second quarter of this year, about half the number in each of the preceding three years.
Three were homesteads, one was a seasonal recreational, and one was a commercial property. Two were worth under $100,000, two were worth between $200,000 and $400,000, and one was worth between $400,000 and $600,000.
Assessor Mark Peterson reported on Tuesday that there were 437 property sales the first half of this year, down slightly from the 445 sold in 2018.
In addition to this discussion, the Authorized Elections Administrator Sharon Anderson is set to purchase, for $24,070, enough additional Poll Pad electronic voter registration roster systems with maintenance contracts to complete the switch from paper to electronic voter registration records in all precincts before the 2020 elections.
