Skylands Park, the former home of the indy pro Sussex SkyHawks (Can-Am League) and Single-A New Jersey Cardinals (New York-Penn League), is going up for auction on Wednesday, Dec. 12, to satisfy a $57,277.43 tax lien placed on the property by Frankford Township. We assume Millennium Sports Management, the owner of the ballpark, could still redeem the property if the tax is paid. If not, and no other bidder steps up to the plate, the property could end up in the hands of the township.
Beyond confirming the auction with the township’s tax department, we have not talked with any officials about what they might do with the property, if they end up with it. One major challenge for Millennium has been the annual $120,000-plus property tax bill, based on a $6.7 million valuation. Millennium challenged this valuation last year.
