Chicago-investor Bill Hults delivered the $100,000 deposit required for his purchase of the Packard Plant.
According to Wayne County Deputy Treasurer David Szymanski, Hults made it into the Treasurer’s office by 4:45 p.m. to deliver the $100,000 check. Hults now has until 3 p.m. Monday to pay the rest of the more than $2 million bid he made last Friday.
If Hults doesn’t come through with the rest of the bid, he will lose the $100,000 deposit. The site will then go to the next highest bidder, Fernando Palazuelo, a developer based out of Lima, Peru.
