NEWBERRY — The Newberry County Forfeited Land Commission has accepted four bids for properties owned by the Commission.
The first bid was from Rosette Gallman of Prosperity for 103 Wye St. in Newberry. Gallman placed a bid of $300 and the FLC was asking $1,105.04. This particular property has a house located on it. The house has burned, but has not been removed.
Jay Tothacer, Newberry County attorney, made the recommendation that the FLC accept the bid.
“I make the motion that we accept the bid of $300 because of the condition of the lot,” said Karen Lindler Smith, Newberry County treasurer.
Donna Lominack, Newberry County auditor, seconded on the recommendation of Tothacer that they accept it.
The FLC has had the property since March.
