Disposal of Surplus Personal Property Owned by County Commissioners of Worcester County, Maryland

NOTICE

Disposal of Surplus Personal Property Owned by
County Commissioners of Worcester County, Maryland

In accordance with the provisions of Section CG 4-403 of the County Government Article of the Code of Public Local Laws of Worcester County, Maryland, the County Commissioners of Worcester County, Maryland have declared the following described personal property as surplus and are considering disposal of same by demolition through a controlled burn training exercise to be conducted by the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company.

DILAPIDATED STRUCTURE ON ONE OF THE ISLANDS OF
GREYS CREEK NATURE PARK 

A dilapidated structure has been identified on one of the islands of the property previously known as the Weidman Farm, now known as Greys Creek Nature Park, which is in danger of collapsing into the bay and potentially becoming a waterway hazard.  The Greys Creek Nature Park property is identified on Worcester County Tax Map 11 as Parcel 2, on the south side of Williamsville Road just south of the Maryland-Delaware State Line, and the dilapidated structure is located on Parcel 11 of the Plat Showing the Lands of Douglas P. Weidman dated September 2005.  The structure serves no continuing useful purpose for the park nor would it support any passive recreational or educational activities planned for future visitors to the park and is therefore proposed for disposal.

BIDDING IMPRACTICAL: The County Commissioners have determined, by at least five-sevenths majority vote, that given the dilapidated condition of the structure, disposal by competitive bidding is impractical.

PLAN FOR DISPOSAL:  The County Commissioners propose to dispose of the dilapidated structure through a controlled burn training exercise to be conducted by the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company utilizing their fire boat and given their ability to suppress the fire as needed to prevent any collateral damage to the rest of the island.

Anyone objecting to the proposed disposal of the above personal property shall do so in writing submitted to the Worcester County Commissioners, Room 1103 - Worcester County Government Center, One West Market Street, Snow Hill, Maryland 21863 prior to 4:30 P.M. on Thursday, June 29, 2017, or in person at the hour of 10:00 A.M. on Wednesday, July 5, 2017 during the regularly scheduled meeting of the County Commissioners to be held in Room 1101 - Worcester County Government Center, One West Market Street, Snow Hill, Maryland 21863.
