Palmerton receives bid for vacant lot
Palmerton may have a taker for a vacant lot in the West End of the borough.
The borough received lukewarm interest for the property at 910 Edgemont Avenue after it received one bid from Joe Weiner in the amount of $1,002.
Borough Manager Rodger Danielson said the bid information will be shared with Borough Council when it meets at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The sole proposal is one more than the borough received when it initially attempted to sell the property last August. At that time, no offers were received.
Council agreed earlier this month to readvertise the sale of the lot, after it was expressed that there might be a renewed interest in the land.
The property had been abandoned for many years until the borough took over ownership in Nov. of 2011.
