POTENTIAL SALE OF SOCIAL HALL
Joy and Mayor Sarah Jackson have been in meetings with the County and Probation on leasing the entire Social Hall at City Park and discussion has been held on consideration of selling the building if there is a fair market value agreement. Key factors are it being part of a 10-acre parcel, parking and if City residents are in favor of selling the building.
Councilman Jerry Gerow felt it hard not knowing the selling price and the total rent. Current rent by Probation is $1,000/month with $100 credit for a shared propane account. The entire building would rent for $1,700/month with renter maintaining the inside and the City maintaining the outside. Mayor Sarah called the “tricky part” it being two government agencies and no similar comparisons in the City. She explained it was not signing a Bill of Sale but just getting a consensus if a sale is good to pursue.
Council member Dorie Gayner made the motion to move forward to consider the County to purchase the Social Hall if it is financially appropriate. It was seconded by Joy and Jerry voted no. The mayor stated if it wasn’t profitable, they don’t move forward.
