Chelsea City Council sets deadline for bids on old police station
The city has received two bids to purchase the old police station, both of which are at least $30,000 below the building’s appraised value of $108,000. The council voted 4-2 to stop accepting new bids after 10 a.m. on Sept. 20.
The majority of council members thought that 14 months was long enough for the building to remain on the market, Chelsea Update reported. City Manager John Hanifan reminded council members that the city took a year and a half to sell the Buchanan building and that the Longworth building is still for sale for $1 with a $1 million investment promise.
