The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors recently decided to set a fee for a cancellation of a sheriff sale.  Supervisor Richard Reed says there is quite a bit of paper work involved with putting on a sheriff sale and some sales are posted and then there is a cancellation.  Reed says that has happened to one property five times before a sheriff sale ever happened.  There is a cost to the county so they put a minimum $50 fee on a cancellation.  He says they want to make people more organized before they put something up for a sheriff sale.
