The City of Carrollton purchased a building in downtown Carrollton in a master commissioner’s foreclosure sale Friday, May 4.
Mayor Gene McMurry, on behalf of the city, bid $34,000 on the building located at 110 Court St., formerly owned by Danny Maiden. The building was sold at public auction on the courthouse steps Friday at 9 a.m.
The plaintiff, MainSource Bank, offered $33,267.
The city opted to pay the full amount rather than 10 percent at the time of sale to avoid paying the 12 percent interest fee.
