An appraiser has delivered to the Melba City Council the valuations on city-owned properties. The City of Melba currently owns four properties inside the city limits they are hoping to sell while also encouraging economic development.

Melba’s Marshall Anderson came to the Melba City Council meeting this month and expressed interest in the Quik Stop location (208 3rd Street). Anderson is interested in using the space, appraised at $40,000 for the building and lot (excluding assets located inside the building), for a restaurant. While most city council members are in favor of auctioning off the property, other ideas include leasing the space or dividing it into smaller, leasable spaces for businesses. The City of Melba, who recently invested over $3,000 to bring the property up to code due to some faulty electrical connections, would need to take the next step and set an auction date for this property.
