Braxton County officials say an oversight is to blame for the mistaken sale of the county's new 911 Center and EMS property at a tax auction.

Braxton resident Russell Carpenter paid about $3,100 for the 6.5-acre property at the recent tax auction held by the sheriff.

County Commission President David Jack Sr. says the sale has been nullified and Carpenter's money will be refunded.

The commission bought the property about two years ago for a new center, the property being in default at that time.

Jack said commissioners thought the sheriff had removed the site from the list of properties to be sold at auction for back taxes.
