Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire's former Fire Station 10 could soon be a used car lot.

On Tuesday, the Eau Claire City Council will vote to sell the property on North Hastings Way to Svee Metalworks, Inc.

According to the proposal, the company plans to relocate Outlaw Auto Sales to the property. The business is currently on 7th Street.

Svee Metalworks would also add detailing services and office space that could be rented.

They've offered to buy the former fire station for $225,000.

A 2017 appraisal determined the fair market value for the fire station was $365,000. However, asbestos was found in the building last year that the new owners would need to remediate.

There was a second proposal submitted for the former fire station. A different autobody business offered a little more than $20,000 for the property.
