The Josephine County Board of Commissioners on Wednesday approved an order confirming a Sheriff's Property Sale that occurred on November 1st.

The Board voted 2-0 to approve the order by accepting the Sheriff's Return of Sale and Sheriff's Certificate of Sale before authorizing the distribution of proceeds from the sale. Commissioner John West was absent.

Property Management reported only one out of four properties that were for sale actually sold. The sale price for the unspecified property was $207,501, which -- minus a 10% administrative fee -- netted the county $186,750. The proceeds will go to the Property Management Fund.

During Comments and Requests from Citizens, the Board heard from a Wolf Creek man regarding code enforcement and two people promoted Veterans Day events taking place on Saturday. A Veterans Day event is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Merlin Community Park and a Candlelight Vigil is set for 5 p.m. at the Josephine County Republican Party headquarters across from the Courthouse in Grants Pass.

Commissioner Dan DeYoung concluded the 14-minute session with the reading of a Veterans Day poem.
