The town is unexpectedly $438,000 richer, thanks to a May 24 land auction that officials figured would only bring in about $300,000, Treasurer and Tax Collector Mary Bousquet said recently.
A house on Andrew Lane sold for $250,000, a parcel of land on Washington St. went for $165,000, a land-locked parcel
off South St. went for $15,000, and a small parcel on Birchwood Road brought in $8,000. The town acquired the properties through tax liens.
