Dunedin banking on surplus property sales for extra revenue

DUNEDIN -- Nearly two dozen unused city-owned properties are almost ready to go on the market.

The Dunedin City Commission last week gave city staff the go-ahead to obtain appraisals, identify buyers and eventually bring back sale contracts for final commission approval.

City officials hope to generate revenue by returning the 22 surplus properties, ranging in size from 500 to 10,000 square feet, to the city's tax rolls.

Officials said the parcels won't be ready for sale until appraisals are complete, which will take at least another six weeks. Check out information posted on the city's website here.
