The Bay County Commission approved the sale of the County Market to Bay City by a 6-1 vote Tuesday, March 10. The asking price was $250,000.

The board majority indicated it no longer wished to provide upkeep for the Market property. Commissioner Michael Lutz cast the lone no vote.

The city is working with the Bay City Housing Commission on a development plan which would encompass the Market and the nearby former YMCA property.
