[HISTORY: Adopted by the County Commissioners of Caroline County 11-15-1988 as Bill No. 88-3. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Unless otherwise provided by law, whenever the County Commissioners propose to dispose of any County-owned property or any rights incidental thereto by reason of the fact that such property is no longer needed for County use, they shall first advertise same at least once a week for three successive weeks in one or more newspapers of general circulation in the county, inviting competitive bids to be made upon such terms and conditions as the County Commissioners may deem appropriate, including, without limitation, the right to accept or reject any and all bids as they see fit with regard to the disposal of such property and giving an opportunity for objections to any such disposal.
When any County-owned property is no longer needed for use by the County Commissioners, and the County Commissioners propose to dispose of same by lease, grant or otherwise for a public purpose, as such public purpose may be from time to time determined by a two-thirds majority vote of the County Commissioners, the Commissioners shall, prior to adopting a resolution for the disposal of such property, advertise the proposed disposal once a week for three successive weeks in one or more newspapers of general circulation in the county, stating the terms of such disposal and the compensation to be received therefor and giving opportunity for objections thereto.
The County Commissioners may, by a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote, determine that it may be impractical to dispose of County-owned property, or rights incidental thereto, for nonpublic purposes by competitive bidding. In such cases, the County Commissioners shall, prior to adopting a resolution for the disposal of such property, advertise the proposed disposal once a week for three successive weeks in one or more newspapers of general circulation in the county, stating the terms of such disposal and the compensation to be received therefor, and giving opportunity for objections thereto.
The provisions of this chapter shall not apply to the closing of public roads within the county or easements for public utilities, or to property titled to other bodies corporate or politic of the county.
