Carbon County is soliciting sealed bids for the purchase of real property owned by Carbon County, situated at 30 East 200 South in Price, Utah. The property was previously used as the Senior Center building and most recently as the Boys and Girls Club of Price, Utah. The fair market value of the property, as determined by the average of two recently obtained appraisals, is $400,000. The tax numbers of the parcels to be sold are 01-0231, 01-0232, 01-0235, and 01-0236.
Additional information, including a complete legal description and a GIS map showing the location of the parcels, may be obtained by entering the parcel numbers at the following website: https://www.carbon.utah.gov/recorder.

Interested parties may bid on (1) all four parcels collectively, (2) parcel numbers 01-0235 and 01-0236, upon which the old Senior Center building sits, or (3) parcel numbers 01-0231 and 01-0232, which are vacant. The County will award the sale to the bidder submitting the highest bid that exceeds $400,000 for all four parcels or for parcels 01-0235 and 01-0236. In the event that no bid exceeds the amount of $400,000, the County may retain all parcels or seek to dispose of them by another method.
