An historic building in Rochester is up for sale at a bargain price of just $1000.
It's a real fixer-upper, but the city's hoping a developer will breath new life into the old Pulaski library. The library has been out of use for 19-years, and in that time the condition inside has deteriorated. But the city says with the right plan it can be the perfect home for a thriving business. It's removed the asbestos from the building, eliminated water infiltration, and repaired the building shell in preparation for the sale.
They say a lot of people have shown interest in buying. Prospective buyers must submit a development proposal by March 8th.
The city expects to select a bidder on March 29th, then City \Council would have to approve the sale. According to the assessed value, the building would bring in a little over $4000 in tax revenue with a new owner.
