Hollywood Twp. to sell shed and schoolhouse at a live auction
“After a lot of good discussion, the residents confirmed that they would like to sell the old township shed and the schoolhouse,” Hollywood Township Clerk Becky Burns noted.
At the April meeting, residents and board members decided to sell the buildings at a live auction. Details will be confirmed at the Monday, May 9 township meeting.
Also, for people who would like dust control, the May 9 meeting is the last chance to sign up.
The township will not be having a cleanup day this year, Burns added. Instead, it will offer $10 coupons that can be used at the Douglas Kugler Eco-Site in Watertown.
“Please come to the township meeting to receive your free coupon,” Burns noted.
