MADISON — As expected, the former Veterans Service Office building in downtown Norfolk is for sale.
Following a three-minute public hearing Tuesday in which no one spoke in favor or against the building going on the market, the Madison County board of commissioners voted to sell the building located at 130 S. Fourth St.
Ron Schmidt, county board chairman, said the county first will need to establish what it believes to be a fair market value for the property.
The county board also voted to advertise for bids and is expected to open bids for the brown brick building on Thursday, July 18. The county board reserves the right to reject any bids it doesn’t believe are fair market value, Schmidt said.
Earlier this year, the county completed some construction modifications at the new University of Nebraska Extension building, which is the former Daycos Co. building.
That enabled the veterans service office to be moved there as well.
