Montgomery County commissioners revealed they're coming closer to selling off the Human Services Center (HSC) at 1430 DeKalb Street in Norristown. Commissioner Chariman Josh Shapiro told reporters the county is currently entertaining offers from several bidders, though he would not reveal how many bids have been made or who the bidders are.
The county issued $55 million in bonds on Wednesday, $10 million less than they were authorized to issue, citing possible income from an HSC sale as reason to borrow less.
Though officials wouldn't comment on a possible post-sale use of the building which once housed Sacred Heart Hospital, Shapiro did speculate that a deal could be closed by the end of the year.
"There are sufficient people interested to allow us to negotiate," said Shapiro. "Some real competition."
