AGO 1960 No. 130 >  July 5, 1960
CITIES AND TOWNS - PROPERTY - LOCAL IMPROVEMENT ASSESSMENT LIENS WHERE LAND IS PURCHASED FROM CITY
CITIES AND TOWNS - PROPERTY - LOCAL IMPROVEMENT ASSESSMENT LIENS WHERE LAND IS PURCHASED FROM CITY (1)  Where a third class city purchases tax title property from a county for the amount of general taxes, the sale of the property by the city to a private individual is subject to all local improvement assessment liens whether perfected prior to or during the time the county held title.  (2)  If the city had acquired title through its own foreclosure and sells to a private individual the lien remains as to all outstanding local improvement assessments not foreclosed but is discharged as to those which were foreclosed. (3)  The city may sell such property for whatever price it wishes.
