CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) - A $50,000 bid could get you a barge on the Tennessee River in downtown Chattanooga, though you'd have to move it.

An attorney for a company owned by Chattanooga businessman Allen Casey proposes in U.S. Bankruptcy Court papers to put the controversial barge up for sale for no less than $50,000.

David Fulton said in court papers that a prospective buyer also will need insurance for any damage caused in relocating the run-down barge, which Casey had hoped to turn into a riverfront restaurant and bar.

Bankruptcy Court Judge Shelley Rucker has set a hearing for 10 a.m. Thursday on Fulton's request.
