What's the latest development with Hoppers?
Erie County assistant prosecutor Jason Hinners provided the following response to the ongoing Hoppers debacle:
I will update you on the involvement of our office with the property located at 2513 Venice Road, (also known as) Hopper’s mobile home park.
This property was subject to a foreclosure action filed by a lienholder to the property. After it became evident that the lienholder would not take the property to a sheriff’s sale, Erie County treasurer Pam Ferrell chose to commence a tax foreclosure action.
On April 25, 2014, the tax foreclosure complaint was filed. The parties to the tax foreclosure action have been successfully served with a notice of the complaint.
The next step in the process is filing the appropriate pleadings with the court so judgment can be obtained. Unless the delinquent tax amount is paid in full, the eventual result of the tax foreclosure action is a sheriff’s sale. Until the property is transferred to a successful bidder at a sheriff’s sale, the title holder of the property will remain Westgate Development Co.
Sandusky crews should still get out there and mow it. We'll inform the code enforcement department if this properly should be trimmed.
