ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The former headquarters of the Albany Police Department's mounted division could soon go to the highest bidder.

The city is determining how best to sell the stables on the corner of Jefferson Street and 7th Avenue near Tift Park.

The city shut down the mounted patrol last year to save money. Now they plan to get rid of the vacant property.

"We've purchased you name it from fire trucks to property in the past," said Central Services Director Stephen Collier. "The selling of real estate is a little bit different for us, we don't do a whole lot of it. So we're just trying to seek out solutions that's more advantageous to the community."

Collier says the city is weighing different auction services before moving forward. He says the land should be up for sale within the next 30 to 60 days.
