St-Lazare sold off Allan Bassenden’s former Leduc Street property to collect unpaid municipal taxes.
This past spring, the town had issued a public notice that it would hold an auction of properties for 2013-2014 tax arrears if the owners do not make amends. According to the town, Bassenden and his wife owed about $7,000 in back taxes for the property at 1610 Leduc St., where their home was gutted by fire in March 2011.
