J.P. King of Gadsden, Ala., is handling the auction of TVA properties in Swan Pond.
The TVA board of directors approved the auction of 62 parcels along Emory River Road earlier this month.
TVA acquired the properties following the Dec. 22, 2008, ash spill at the agency’s Kingston Fossil Plant.
Ric Perez, a senior vice president of shared services for TVA, told the board that TVA staff is convinced returning the parcels to private ownership is the best thing to do.
The 62 parcels cover about 77 acres. Twenty-three have houses on them.
