Q What statutory procedure should be followed to dispose of abandoned personal property on real property owned by a county economic development district?

A Section 19-5-99 authorizes an economic development district to acquire real property but does not authorize the economic development district to acquire title to or dispose of abandoned personal property. Consequently, the economic development district should turn the property over to the sheriff who should then dispose of the property pursuant to Section 19-3-85.
