Village sells vacant lot

  • Sep. 13, 2006 1:00 p.m.

The village of Port Clements sold a vacant lot at 6 Tingley Street last week, after receiving four bids for the property.
Mayor Cory Delves opened the bids Sept. 5 at a public meeting attended by several residents. The bids ranged from a low of $11,650 from a man who lives in Abbotsford, to a high of $12,600.
Council members decided at a closed door meeting following their regular meeting to sell the property to Port Clements resident Jamie Dennis.
Mr. Dennis was not the high bidder, but Port administrator Terry McMullon said the $100 difference between the high bid and Mr. Dennis’s bid of $12,500 was “immaterial”.
The village acquired the Tingley Street property because the previous owner did not pay the taxes. There had been a derelict house on the lot, which the village demolished earlier this year.
The village currently owns several properties due to non-payment of taxes. It had also advertised a lot for sale at 130 Adams Road (off Ryland Road), but received no bids for this one. Mr. McMullon said council has not yet decided what to do next with this property.
