GREEN RIVER — During a special meeting Tuesday morning, the Sweetwater County Commission accepted an offer on a county-owned building for sale in Green River.
The property is located at 115 E. Flaming Gorge Way in Green River and served as a community services building.
A local dentist bought the building and plans to move his practice into it. The selling price is $370,000. The assessment done on the building before it was listed suggested a selling price of between $350,000 to $400,000, according to Commissioner Jeff Smith.
Commissioners approved the sale following an executive session at the 8:30 a.m. virtual meeting.
Selling unused county-owned facilities is one option the commission has considered during a time of reduced revenues. The building on Flaming Gorge Way was advertised for sale in December. An offer was made, and the commission approved a counter offer after an executive session at the Jan. 5 regular meeting.
