A decision on what will become of the century-old building in Atascadero is looming closer as a last-ditch effort to save the troubled landmark gets underway.
Because of unpaid back taxes, the building will be put up for online public auction on May 14.
The deadline for entering an objection to that auction is now set for Friday, March 31.
Taxing entities, like the City of Atascadero, have the ability to enter an objection to an auction sale, but must first indicate an intention to purchase. In this case, the City has declined to so.
