PHILPOT FIRE TOWER
The purpose of this auction is to SELL 1 (one) galvanized steel fire tower, with or without the pylons. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) intends to only sell the tower and not the property on which the tower is located.
This is a 100 ft. tower with a trap door entrance and a standard 8' X 8' ft. or 64 sq. ft. cabin. It was constructed in 1969 of galvanized steel with pressure treated wood steps and cabin floor, currently the wood steps are in poor condition and the condition of the cabin is in unknown condition. The dimensions for the base of the tower are 22’x22’. The purchaser would not be able to transport the base without disassembling it.
Bidders are encouraged to remove the pylons, along with the tower; however, it is not required to remove the pylons. Bidders who remove the pylons shall cause minimal ground disturbance when removing pylons, as well as, return the ground to its previous state, including providing necessary fill dirt.
*Buyer is responsible for: furnishing proof of liability insurance to the seller; the fire tower must be removed 30 calendar days after payment is received; and, for the removal and transportation to the buyer’s property as indicated on the attached document*
