The Warren’s Auto Service property will soon belong to someone else after the current owner was a no-show at Monday’s tax sale hearing.
Warren Ferraro currently owns Warren Auto, at the corner of West 12th and Peach streets, however, his property will soon belong to Guy Leroy of Philadelphia.
After Ferraro failed to appear in court Monday, Judge John Garhart said he will sign the order finalizing the sale of the property to Leroy.
Ferraro owed Erie County more than $16,000 in unpaid property taxes.
The property was sold at the upset price to repay the money owed to the county.
George Joseph, of the Erie County Tax Claim Bureau, said the property sold for just over $19,000.
