Negaunee City Manager Nate Heffron is announcing the sale of the former Negaunee Waste Water Treatment Plant. The plant consists of 12-acre property with a combination of buildings and waste water digesters.

The council gave Heffron the authority to auction off the property back in February of 2019 at their regular meeting. An auction was held on April 25, 2019, at the Negaunee City hall, where one bidder attended. The minimum bid started at $30 thousand dollars, Mr. Pete O’Dovero was the successful bidder.
