The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office announced Tuesday, Dec. 10, that it has transferred approximately 12.6 acres of tax-forfeited property to the City of Vicksburg effective Dec. 4, 2019.
The Warren County tax collector conveyed the property, once owned by U.S. Rubber Reclaiming, Inc. to the State of Mississippi for the non-payment of property taxes in August 2010, the same month the company ceased its operations. The company was wholly owned by Obsidian Enterprises of Indianapolis, Ind.
The property is off U.S. Highway 61 just north of the municipal airport.
“The City of Vicksburg has done a tremendous job in attracting new businesses and has been an excellent partner with our office over the years in returning parcels to the tax rolls,” Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said in a statement. “Under Mayor Flagg’s leadership and vision, I am confident this property will benefit the City of Vicksburg.”See a typo?
