Former Bert Apple Empty Lot Sold By Town Of Walkerton
Recently, a transaction was made for the purchase of the lot that once, was the address to the former Walkerton Town Hall. Town Attorney Fred Jones earlier in 2020 opened the only bid for the property at 510 Roosevelt Rd. The bid was received from David Vermillion, President / Founder at Vermillion Systems for $25,000.
Vermillion-Systems is a security tech firm offering products and services across the nation. They are already headquartered on the opposite corner at 603 Roosevelt Rd. A Town Council motion to accept the bid for 510 Roosevelt Rd. for $25,000 was made by Council Member Joyce Joiner. Seconded by Council Vice President Jeff Fansler. Motion carried with a 5-0 vote.

I reached out to Vermillion to inquire about any future plans for the address? According to Greg Payne a representative from Vermillion-Systems he said, "At this time, we do not have any immediate plans for the parcel at 510 Roosevelt."
Last November Vermillion-Systems acquired the South Bend based TC Security Company. The owners are working diligently to integrate operations and ensure a seamless transition for customers. In addition to the TC Security team, customers will be supported by the Vermillion Systems customer service and technical teams, based in Walkerton. TC Security clients will benefit from Vermillion Systems’ wide offering of additional products and services.

We will continue to deliver customized, innovative security and surveillance systems, on-time and on-budget. It’s what we are known for."
