The Enterprise — Marcello Iaia

Abandoned: Small trees and weeds cover the ground where a parcel foreclosed upon by the county meets Beaver Road in Berne. The property has been abandoned for more than 10 years and had delinquent taxes. It has been withdrawn from auctions in the past for possible conveyance to the state, but it is now up for a sealed-bid auction this month. The property was previously in the name of Joseph and Marion Santoli, and Ronald and Francine Hoffman.
