Commission OKs sale

The Escambia County (Ala.) Commission is moving ahead with the sale of several old vehicles and a parcel of land on River Road, which will be sold to the highest bidder.

The old vehicles were formerly used by the sheriff's office and now sit at the county's work shop. County Clerk-Administrator Tony Sanks said the old vehicles will be posted on the website for people to make offers.

The county will also be advertising to sell property it owns on River Road. Commission Chairman Raymond Wiggins said the property was seized by the sheriff's office several years ago.
