A foreclosure proceeding initiated in July involving the west Lawrence home of Douglas County Sheriff Ken McGovern has been resolved, according to Douglas County District Court records.
Douglas County District Judge Michael Malone dismissed the foreclosure case filed by U.S. Bank on Aug. 16, at the request of the bank. McGovern said in July after the civil suit was filed that he and his wife, Rebecca McGovern, were working on resolving the matter with the bank after he said his wife’s small business, a Lawrence salon and spa, was struggling due to the tough economic times. The situation had affected the family’s finances, he said.
In 2010, 110 of 336 property owners were able to resolve foreclosures after a sale had been scheduled, according to numbers from the sheriff’s office, which is in charge of the sales.
McGovern said he had no comment on the matter Monday.
