No Adequate Bid For Santa Teresa Country Club

Maybe the third time will be the charm for state taxation officials trying to sell three large Santa Teresa Country Club properties to try to collect at least $672,000 of unpaid taxes.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that a third attempt to sell the properties is planned for Oct. 17.

That's after the properties went unsold during an auction Monday — the second time in less than a year that the properties failed to sell.

State officials said they didn't accept a $20,000 bid for the three properties because they required a bid for at least the $672,000 combined value of delinquent taxes for the three properties.
