CLEARFIELD – Lawrence Township Supervisors took another step toward having all of the township’s assets located under one roof Tuesday night.
Solicitor James Naddeo presented the supervisors with a proposed advertisement to sell the Bayer building in Hyde, where the police department is currently located.
The supervisors voted to move forward with advertising for bids on the building, to be opened Sept. 3.
The township also voted to move forward on filing a tax appeal for both the Bayer building and the building on George Street. Currently the building in Hyde is assessed at $800,000 but was recently appraised at $583,000.
At the end of the meeting, Supervisor Randy Powell said that the supervisors made an offer on another building in the township large enough to house everything under one roof with room to expand. The offer was accepted.
Naddeo recommended the supervisors amend the sales agreement to state that it is conditional on selling the Bayer building.
The supervisors would not say exactly which building they are anticipating on purchasing; however, they did note that the agreement includes the transfer of ownership of the George Street to the owner of the building the supervisors are purchasing.
The supervisors have recently been investigating the possibility of moving everything under one roof as a cost-saving measure.
