Hundreds gather for the annual Cayuga County auction of tax-foreclosed properties at Emerson Park. The auction, run by the county Office of Real Property Tax Service, will include approximately 25 parcels within the city of Auburn and 46 parcels throughout the rest of Cayuga County. The yearly auction allows the city and county to partially recoup lost tax revenue that went uncollected from tax-delinquent properties that have been foreclosed upon.
