Attorney General Robert Cooper issued an opinion maintaining the authority of the City of Jellico to sell surplus real property by private sale if the city determines that a private sale is the most advantageous manner available. Cooper also ruled that a county that has adopted the 1981 Act is only authorized to sell surplus land by public sale unless the property is historically or architecturally significant and qualifies for private sale.
