The Johnson County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to dispose of some county-owned property on Thursday.

The nearly 35,000-square-foot property includes a 7,300 square-foot office building that used to house the Johnson County Public Health Department, 1105 S. Gilbert Court.

Appraisers valued the property at $550,000 in December 2010.

Under the resolution, bids under 95 percent of the appraised value, or $522,500, would not be accepted.

While the supervisors plan to award the property to the highest bidder, they have the right to reject all bids under the resolution.

The supervisors also approved a public hearing regarding the proposed plan to dispose of the property. The hearing is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. May 12.
