    Two questions....1) If I am advertizing an online auction in the paper for 5 separate units at my facility, can they all be in the same ad or do I have to run 5 separate ads?
    2) and this is a weird one.....My storage facility is right on the edge of our town.  It is in the city limits of Odessa, but it is in Midland County.  It is a strange overlap area with a whole set of odd problems.  SO!!! When I have to advertise an auction, do I advertise in the Odessa or Midland paper?  The rule is "In the county where the facility is located".  Does it really matter?
    This will be my first try at this and I want to get it all right!

    Yes, you can put it all in one ad, just make sure you list each tenant's name and the contest of that tenant's unit. 

    Check with both papers, and long as they can provide you with an affidavit stating they are a paper in general circulation in the county your facility is in, you should not have any issues, and then go with the cheaper option of the two papers.
