A.                 Offer for Purchase of Town Land – E. Shady Lane

Resident Joe Nemecek presented an offer of  $12,000.00/ acre for the sale of approximately 10 acres of town land west of the Municipal Complex.  He also stated the land should be rezoned thus giving the town a tax base and set the tone for the area.

 

Assessor Richard Eiberger feels this is not timely.  Supervisor Sprague agreed there is no need to sell at this point in time as the land has reached its potential price.

 

Discussion ensued regarding the lack of information as to what business would be placed and/or what kind of structure would be constructed.   It  was the consensus of all board members not to take any action at this time.
