WHY WE USE THE AUCTION PROCESS

When the Assembly determines that a parcel of Borough land is available for sale, in order to ensure a fair and equitable opportunity to everyone, the Mayor will first offer the land by public auction.  All property auctions must be open for a minimum of thirty days and advertised in a public place at least four times within four weeks. The Mayor will sell the land by outcry or public sealed bid auction to the highest bidder who performs all the terms of the sale.  Check back here often to see if there are any parcels up for auction. You can also nominate a parcel if you think the sale process should be initiated. See our Land Nominations page for details.
