City Of Springfield Soliciting Bids For 17 Surplus Properties

The City of Springfield is taking bids on various parcels of city-owned land at 17 locations in Springfield.

Many of the properties were once the site of buildings that have been demolished by the city.  Some were forfeited to the city as a result of delinquent sewer liens.

When determining an asking price for a surplus property, the city says it takes several things into consideration, including other property values in the neighborhood and the amount of money the city has put into the site through demolitions or paying off liens.

According to a news release from the City of Springfield, in most cases, the revenue from the sale of surplus property goes into the Police and Firefighters Retirement System fund.

The properties are listed here, and they're categorized by neighborhood.

Those bids will be open until Wednesday, May 1, 2019.
