JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- Residents in Cambria County recently spent time learing how to buy tax-delinquent properties, and sometimes at very cheap prices.

Johnstown City Council and Cambria County hosted the public seminar to educate others on sheriff's sales, upset sales, judicial and private sales.

Those who helped organize the event said it would help prevent blight and the turnout was promising.

"This is a way to increase the momentum, to educate people so they can do the homework ahead of time," said Cambria County Commissioner Tom Chernisky. "If they can buy some properties they can find some value in, it puts the properties back into taxation."

Organizers said they are planning another seminar for the summer or fall.
