Packard Plant Heads For Auction Block

September 18, 2013



Wayne County is putting the old Packard plant up for auction, after a developer missed a deadline last week to pay about one-million dollars toward the property's overdue taxes. Bill Hults says he still hopes to come up with the money and pay the bill soon, so he can go ahead with plans to build new homes and businesses on the land. WDET's Pat Batcheller asked Wayne County Deputy Treasurer David Szymanski if the deal can be saved, and if not, what will happen to the plant? Click on the audio link above to hear the conversation.
