Palmerton has taken over ownership of a dilapidated property in the west end of the borough.
Borough Manager Rodger Danielson informed Borough Council on Tuesday that the borough now owns the property at 910 Edgemont Avenue.
Danielson asked council to ratify his actions on Nov. 19, when he placed a bid in the amount of $3,576 for the property, where a rundown home exists.
"We are now the owners of that property," Danielson said. "As soon as possible, we'd like to begin remediation, remove the property, and put it out to bid."
