Auction scheduled for Greyhound Park property

It will be held next month in Park City

WICHITA, Kan - Sedgwick County is planning to auction off land it owns at the Wichita Greyhound Park. 

No dog races have run at the park for more than 10 years and the county commission voted last November to sell the property because the land isn't being used and the buildings are deteriorating.  The facility closed in 2007 after Sedgwick County voters defeated a proposal to allow slot machines there. 

The county owns the land but developer Phil Ruffin leases the park itself and buildings on the property. The lease would have to be part of the sale and Ruffin has said that he is interested in buying the land. 

The property at 77th Street North and I-135 has an appraised value of more than $2 million. 

The auction is scheduled for July 17 in Park City.
