PROVO, Utah (AP) - Provo is facing a lawsuit from a resident who says he wants to put a technology center at the Utah County Security Center but wasn’t allowed to inspect the building before it was listed for sale as surplus property.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1TBttMr) John Fenley’s lawsuit was filed this week after the city’s council voted to list the surplus land and building as for sale to other buyers.

Four proposals were received by the city, including Fenley’s, and developer D.R. Horton was able to buy the land with the intent to build townhomes there.

Fenley says the sale is illegal, and wants to halt it until appraisals are conducted as specified by city code.

Deputy Mayor Corey Norman says Fenley’s proposal didn’t conform to the city’s master plan for demolition and future development.
