In August the city of Fruita, Colorado rejected the sale of Enochs Lake to a potential buyer because they wanted to make sure that whoever becomes the next owner ensures the lake remains open for public use as a recreation area.

With this in mind, the city has listed the property for the public to consider. All offers must be submitted by November 8th. The winning bid will be announced by November 15th.
