TUPPER LAKE - The village will request bids for a trailer park that it cleared of structures and cleaned up last fall.
The former trailer park, which consists of a parcel on Main Street and a parcel on Woulf Avenue, was condemned and seized from its previous owners, Dean and Deborah Scoble. The village evicted the tenants and bulldozed the property.
If a person bids on either lot individually, the minimum bid will be $30,000, but if a person wants to bid on both at the same time, the minimum bid will be $50,000 for the entire 5.51-acre property, said village Clerk Mary Casagrain.
The village board decided to set two restrictions for the property: It can't be used as a trailer park or a gas station.
Casagrain told board members at their recent meeting that she received appraisals from both Gillis Realty and LaValley Real Estate.
Gillis appraised one property at $40,000, the other at $20,000, and put a $50,000 price on the total land. LaValley estimated the entire property cost $70,000 in fair market value, with one appraised at $35,000 to $45,000 and the other appraised at $15,000 to $25,000.
