The City of Batavia owns a parcel of land on the west side of Western Avenue north of West Wilson Street identified as PIN 12-21-103-002 that is no longer necessary or useful for the City’s purposes.  The City desires to sell this Property by solicitation for bids as authorized by the Illinois Municipal Code (65 ILCS 5/11-72-2) (the “Statute”).  

The City shall advertise the Property for sale subject to a minimum price (“Minimum Accepted Bid Price”) as required under the Statute.  The sale of land shall be advertised for bids in a newspaper of general circulation in the City once a week for three (3) consecutive weeks, with the first advertisement being no less than thirty (30) days prior to the date on which the bids will be opened as advertised, specifying the Minimum Accepted Bid Price. 

The City reserves the right to reject all bids and to accept only that bid that the corporate authorities determine is in the best interests of the City, which bid approval must be made by no less than three quarters (3/4) of the corporate authorities then holding office. The consideration for the sale of the Property may be in cash or in kind or a combination of cash and in kind consideration, and may include any reservations of right or other impositions that corporate authorities determine are in the best interests of the City.
This property as described is advertised for sale to the highest bidder, with a minimum bid of $10.00.  The property is to be sold as-is and where-is without any warranties or representations and is not considered a buildable parcel of land.    The property is approximately 1.7 acres in size, is currently used as a wet bottom detention basin, and is zoned R3 Multi Family Low Density.  The City will reserve a public utility and drainage easement over the entire area being sold.   Transfer of the property will be via a Quit Claim Deed only.   

The City will accept sealed bids for the real estate until Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at 12:01 PM.  Bids should be sent to the City’s Community Development Department, marked “Western Avenue Land Sale” on the outside of the sealed envelope.  Bids will be opened at the City Council meeting on Monday, December 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM or shortly thereafter, with approval of the bid at a subsequent City Council meeting to be determined.  The City reserves the right to reject any and all bids and to waive any formalities or technicalities in the bidding.  Questions regarding this notice can be directed to Scott Buening, Community Development Director at 630-454-2710 or by email at .
