Except as provided in section
and notwithstanding any other law to the contrary,
the county board may delegate to the county auditor any authority, power, or responsibility
relating generally to the administration of tax-forfeited land assigned to the county board this
chapter. This delegation includes, but is not limited to, the authority, power, and responsibility
to classify tax-forfeited land as conservation or nonconservation property; set the appraisal
values and terms of sale and sell at public auction; initiate legal proceedings to cancel purchase
and repurchase contracts in default status; authorize reinstatement of canceled tax-forfeited
contracts; and authorize former owners and other eligible parties to repurchase tax-forfeited
land. If delegation is granted under this section, the county board shall prescribe the conditions
for delegation and may revoke the delegation without good cause or prior notice. If the county
auditor holds elective office, no delegation shall be made under this section unless the county
auditor concurs in the delegation.
