Clear Spring seeking bids for furnace, central air for rental property

CLEAR SPRING - The Clear Spring Town Council on Monday decided to seek bids for a furnace and a central air-conditioning unit that will be installed in a rental property town officials purchased in 2006.

Town Clerk Juanita K. Grimm said the property, which is a two-story house with a finished attic, is at 12102 National Pike. The town rented out the property for the last two years until the previous tenant recently moved, she said.

Before the house is rented to another tenant, town officials have to purchase the furnace, central air-conditioning unit and find a contractor to renovate the bathroom, said Steven L. Blickenstaff, vice mayor.


The council discussed raising the rent after the property is upgraded, but did not settle on an amount. Grimm said the previous tenant paid $575 per month.
