LANCASTER - Garrard County Fiscal Court agreed Monday to declare logs from a building next to County Attorney Jeff Moss' office on Stanford Street as surplus materials.
The logs were considered for use in the construction of the replica of Uncle Tom's cabin at the Owsley House, but they were "not compatible with the ones we're using for the cabin," Garrard County Judge-Executive John Wilson said.
Wilson will accept sealed bids at his office and open them next week. If not sold, the logs will be taken to the landfill because the building soon will be demolished to make way for the county's new judicial center.
Wilson said the logs "aren't in great shape, but there are not significant environmental hazards in them." The replica cabin has about 75 percent of the number of logs needed for completion, Wilson said.
