Selectmen held off accepting the top bid for the Yellow School, 11 Lunt St., because they are awaiting a recommendation from a committee tasked with reviewing a proposed project for that property. At $125,000, the top bidders on the Yellow School house are Mr. and Mrs, Christopher J. Horan, Newburyport.

The following properties received no bids:

6 Blue Hill West Ave., 15 Hutchins Terrace, 71 Old Point Road, 119 Old Point Road.
