OTTUMWA — The city of Ottumwa will decide next week whether or not to dispose of two parcels of city-owned property during its regular council meeting.
The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers located on second floor of City Hall.
A public hearing will consider disposing of property located at 702 E. Williams St. and 621 Lamborn Ave.. As of June 3, only a few bids for each of the properties had been received. If approved by the council, the parcel at 702 E. Williams St. will be sold to Central Iowa Ventures and the 621 Lamborn St. property will be sold to KBC Investements, LLC.
Should the city dispose of the property, the property will be transferred by a quit claim deed.
