MECOSTA — The Michigan Department of Treasury will be tax-foreclosing on more than 200 properties in eight Michigan counties, with the parcels being offered at public auctions between Aug. 2 and Sept. 4.

Branch, Clinton, Iosco, Keweenaw, Livingston, Luce, Mecosta and Shiawassee counties have chosen to use the state of Michigan as their foreclosing governmental unit.
