Yorktown City Council could possibly make just over a half a million dollars if the property owned by the city on Lee Alves Road sells for the asking price.
The city approved plans to sell the 137.9 acres where the city dump site used to be located. During deliberation in the executive session the council came to terms that the land must bring in a minimum of $4,500 dollars per acre and that the city reserved the right to reject any and all bids that came any lower than $620,550.
