The former business incubator building is officially on the market.

The Alcorn County Board of Supervisors approved a contract this week to list the county-owned Proper Street building with Bailey Williams Realty. The property is listing for $499,900.

The building encompasses 65,625 square feet with approximately 20,000 square feet of heated space. The building sits on a lot of 3.4 acres in size, and the sale includes an adjacent open lot of 2.7 acres.

The building is in need of roof and HVAC work.

The county is selling the building and land as it looks to reduce its holdings of non-essential property.

With Waste Management declining to go lower in its bid to take on the county’s household garbage collection, the board voted to reject the proposal and start the process over by advertising again for proposals. Waste Management’s proposal exceeded the 6 mills that the county can expend on providing garbage service.

Waste Connections currently provides the service but did not submit a proposal. The existing contract expires at the end of June.

The board passed a resolution requesting Tombigbee River Valley Water Management District’s assistance with some recent major levee breaks on the Hatchie River due to heavy rains. Sandy Mitchell said the locations include a break on Joe Duncan’s farm just north of Highway 2 in the Hatchie bottom, one just south of Highway 2 on Joe Caldwell’s farm and a couple near Road 560.

Supervisors reappointed Brad Mitchell to the board of directors of the Corinth – Alcorn County Airport.
