HARRODSBURG, KY. – If you're in the market for an old water tower, a central Kentucky city has just the thing. At a meeting of the Harrodsburg City Commission Monday, two water towers were declared surplus and they are now up for sale.
"A government agency has to declare anything that they are no longer using to be surplus property, and we take bids on that. Whoever gets the bid in this case would be able to sell the metal if it's sellable or would be able to take possession of the lot that the tank sits on," says Harrodsburg city clerk Kim Stinnett
Stinnett says the water towers, one on College Street and the other on Drake Lane, have been out of commission for some time. At least one of the lots that the towers sit on will also be included in the sale.
The city of Harrodsburg will accept bids until August 6th.
