The live auction and the coordination is being done by VanMetre Realty of Marshalltown. More information and photos of the property can be found on their website at www.vanmetre.net. The auction includes both the parcel at 109 South 1st Avenue as well as an adjacent parking lot at 8 East Linn Street. The reserve for the properties is set at $80,000.
