Fitzgerald: New school bids ‘sound’ / February 19, 2009
While Supervisors Chairman William Fitzgerald is pleased to have higher bids for the four former school properties, he said this week that he wants to be sure that the County "is fair to anyone who is interested in bidding on the properties." The four shuttered schools were put up at public auction on Saturday, January 31, but supervisors rejected the low bids placed on the properties at that time.
However, after consulting with Auctioneer Sam Watts last week, the county received sales proposals which more than doubled the $215,000 bids previously received at auction. Watts said this week that he felt the new offers were sound considering the condition of the properties.
The governing body will hold a public hearing on the newly proposed bids during their regular monthly meeting on Monday evening, March 2 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room. This will give all residents the opportunity to express their thoughts or concerns about the sales of the properties.
Fitzgerald, when asked about the possibility of other bids coming in said. "If someone comes forth with a higher bid, then I personally would certainly favor taking their bid into consideration. We want to be sure that we are fair to everyone."
