The next property to be offered was 205 Columbia Street. Some very brisk competitive bidding brought the price up from the opening bid of $15,676 to $39,000. Sandra and Sylvester ("Sly") Lowery were the winning bidders. The Lowerys have been leasing the building and operating a business there. They are now the new owners.
The Lowerys were also the winning bidders on the adjacent property, 209-211 Columbia Street, offering the minimum bid of $19,309.
At its initial offering, with $46,700 as the minimum bid, 66 North Third Street, like the property on Mill Street, had no bidders. When bids below the minimum were invited, the bidding started at $10,000 and rose to $22,000. Henry Haddad was the winning bidder for the property. This sale, too, is subject to Common Council approval.
The bidding for 334 Rope Alley started with the minimum-- $21,069--and competitive bidding brought the price up to $26,500. Linda Mussmann was the winning bidder.
The City of Hudson was looking to recoup $106,587 in unpaid property taxes. If the bids on 208-212 Mill Street and 66 North Third Street are accepted by the Common Council, the total income from the sale of these five properties will be $121,809.
