Lansing Corners to be sold on Friday

Published 4:15 pm Saturday, April 17, 2010

The former Lansing Corners property will be up for bid April 23 at 10 a.m. as the Mower County Sheriff’s Office has scheduled an auction of the property.

“I just hope somebody can do something to bring it back to life because it’s been sitting dormant for a while now,” said Tom Miller, who is working through MF Investment LLC, and was granted an assignment of mortgage of the property. “It’d be nice to see the lights on for people coming in and out of Austin,”

Miller described himself as the owner of the mortgage and the note of the property. Wells Fargo was the mortgage company involved with the property at the beginning of the foreclosure process, but Miller’s attorney, Paul Sween, of Adams, Rizzi and Sween law offices, said Miller has taken control of the property from Wells Fargo.

Sween said Miller became involved with the property because he wanted to see a business, likely a restaurant return to the property.

While at least six sheriff’s sales have been scheduled and canceled in the last year, Miller said the sheriff’s sale of the property — 27017 U.S. Highway 218 — will happen Friday.
