The mayor and council, in the exercise of its police power, wishes to permit, but not promote, the sale of malt beverages, wines, and distilled spirits, in the incorporated city limits, this being necessary for the effective regulation and control of the sale of those alcoholic beverages and for the protection of the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the town. It is the further intent of the mayor and council, through the licensing and regulation of the sale of alcoholic beverages, to protect property values and individual rights of the citizens and to prevent the sale of alcoholic beverages from being an undesirable intrusion on the rights of the citizens of the town and to raise sufficient revenues to cover the costs of licensing, regulating and policing the sales of alcoholic beverages within the town limits.

BIDS

The Town of Talking Rock will be conducting a “Blind Auction” beginning on 5 December 2022. The Blind Auction will run for 30 days, and all sealed bids will be opened during the next Council Meeting, scheduled for 5 January 2023 at 7:00 pm, located at the Town Hall, 4675 Highway 136 W, Talking Rock, GA 30175.

The Town of Talking Rock will be auctioning a 1991 CHEVROLET GMT-400, VIN 1GBJC34K8ME143980. The vehicle is as is and you will be bidding on all contents. The Town of Talking Rock does have a title. There is no warranty. The vehicle is located near Town Hall and is available for viewing. You can drop off or mail your sealed bids to the Town Hall. The winner of the auction will be notified at the conclusion of the auction and will be responsible for removing the vehicle as soon as possible.

Rules for the Sealed Bids: The minimum bid for a sealed bid auction shall be the fair market value of the property or interest in property as determined under section 13.01.060(B). A sealed-bid auction is a type of auction process in which all bidders simultaneously submit sealed bids to the auctioneer so that no bidder knows how much the other auction participants have bid. Sealed bid refers to a written bid placed in a sealed envelope. The sealed bid is not opened until the stated date, at which time all bids are opened together. The highest bidder is usually declared the winner of the bidding process if it is considered to be fair market value. Additionally, In a sealed-bid auction, bidders can only submit one sealed bid and therefore cannot adjust their bids based on competing bids. This sets it apart from the more common English auction, also known as the open ascending price auction, where participants can make multiple bids and bid against each other.
