Camp McConnell has two official bids

By  | 

MICANOPY, Fla. (WCJB)-- There are two official bidders to buy Camp McConnell near Micanopy.

When Wednesday's deadline passed, only Basecamp Ventures and the Lubavitch Chabad Jewish Student Center had placed bids.

Alachua County commissioners had agreed to sell Camp McConnell to Basecamp Ventures last month but then withdrew from the deal over concerns that there had been no open bidding process.

Representatives of the student center complained they had been shut out. But now both bids will be considered by county commissioners on April 9th.
