The longtime issue over the disposition of the former Grantsville town hall property, known locally as "the pit" or "the hole," appears to be moving toward some resolution.

The Grantsville council gave permission to Mayor Curt Garretson to obtain cost estimates regarding a new appraisal of the property.

Garretson told council members he was working to obtain a previous survey done on the property by Calhoun Banks.

The council approved the first reading of a motion to rescind an action taken by council in 2007 that would require a 60% approval of town voters before the property could be disposed.

Mayor Curtis Garretson called a January meeting to discuss the issue with council and the public, a discussion regarding disposition that focused on "auctioning, selling, trading, or status quo."

"If the council decides to move forward with getting rid of the property, necessary steps will be taken to ensure that the transaction is done properly," Garretson said.
