The Monroe Town Council met Thursday night after a one-week delay due to a inclement weather the previous week.
Bid information was presented to the council on the pending sale of the former town hall and fire station. “There is only one bid on the building — by Zurcher Tire Inc. — and I don’t see anymore coming in or anyone contesting the purchase,” said Jeremy Brown, legal counsel for Monroe. “Who would want to be surrounded by Zurcher Tire, they own everything around there,” he said.
A bid was received in the amount of $75,500 from Zurcher Tire Inc. Two appraisal estimates were obtained for the property — one at $75,500, the other at $100,000.
