Big sale of property scheduled in polygamous Utah, Arizona towns

Bruce Wisan, the fiduciary of the United Effort Plan, is going to need to learn how to talk like an auctioneer.

Wisan plans to auction a slew of properties in Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz., in July. The holdings include a rock quarry and the north parking lot of the LSJ meetinghouse, where members of the United Order continue to meet.

The proceeds will go toward paying debts incurred by the UEP, including fees owed to Wisan and his attorneys for managing and defending the trust since the state took it over in 2005. A court filing by the Utah Attorney General says those costs have climbed to $12 million.

Earlier in June, a judge approved about $270,000 in payments to Wisan and his attorneys covering the second half of 2013.

No finished homes are on the list of properties to be auctioned.
