1 valid bid for light tower off North Carolina


CAPE HATTERAS, NC (AP) -- Only one proper bid has been submitted for a light tower 13 miles off Cape Hatteras.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Va., reported a company called Zap Technology bid $17,000 for the Diamond Shoals Light Tower by Friday's deadline.

The minimum bid for the surplus property was $15,000.

Louis Mancuso with the General Services Administration says no decision has been made on awarding the contract for the purchase. But Mancuso says a decision is expected by the end of the week.

The station has 5,000 square feet of living quarters including five bedrooms, a kitchen, an office and storage space.
