Bluff City town hall building sale still on hold

Town's board of mayor and aldermen still hasn't approved sale

BLUFF CITY, Tenn. - The future of the old Bluff City, Tennessee town hall building is still up in the air.

Monday night, the town's board of mayor and aldermen took no official action on approving the sale of the building to Bluff City business woman Sherry Grubb.

Grubb was the high bidder at a public auction of the property with a bid of $9,700.

Grubb tells us she had planned to locate her photography business in the building, but the town board did not take official action because there was no second to the motion made to approve the sale to Grubb.

Now Grubb says the matter is left wide open. "I have lots of theories as to why it was done, but I don't really have any hard evidence," she said. "I have thought from the beginning that some of the leadership in Bluff City just honestly wants the building torn down."

Grubb says she'll continue to attend the town board meetings and keep an eye on the situation. She hopes the old building will continue to stand so she can have another chance to buy it.
