County officials acquired the 3,100-square-foot building at 901 Meridian St., across from the Madison County Government Center, about 10 years ago. Appraisers have valued the property at between $37,500 and $52,000.
Officials originally thought the building might be used for county offices. A new roof and air conditioning and water leaks were fixed, but that plan never materialized, said Dykes.
“The idea that we had was good, but it didn’t happen,” Dykes said. “Now it’s time to get it off the books and move on.”
In addition to the Frisch’s building, the county will auction other surplus property such as unused beds and office desks currently in storage at the Madison County Youth Center on Mounds Road.
