A 1.84-acre city lot with a 6,000-square-foot building thatonce was home to Logan County’s Center for Hard to Recycle Materials will go on the auction block in September.
Logan County Commissioners have begun advertising the sale of the 407 Carter Ave. property, which is located immediately west of ISS Enterprises and across the street from D&J Scrap Metals and Supplies.
The county had advertised the property for sale several years ago, but did not receive a high enough bid, commissioners said Tuesday.
Recent interest in the site has prompted them to put the property back through the public auction process.“We’ve had some inquiries, but we can’t just sell it to any entity without putting it up for auction,” Commissioner Tony Core said.
The commissioners again reserve the right to reject bids if they do not come in high enough, they said. The property is part of the Logan County Solid Waste Management District and money from the sale will be used forthe solid waste district’s operation.
Anyone wishing to bid on the property must submit a sealedbid to the Logan County Commissioners, 117 E. Columbus Ave., by 10 a.m. Sept. 4, when the bids will be opened
Following the opening of the bids, anyone who has submitted a bid may increase the bid amount.
