BONIFAY — Holmes County Development Commissioners discussed the Lonnie Lindsey property and the Interstate Industrial Building Tuesday, Oct. 2, only to come to the conclusion that they are still at square one — waiting on contracts from prospective buyers.

The 4.2 acres of property on Lonnie Lindsey Drive which is owned by the HCDC was to sell to James Sellers for $6,400, but when Panhandle Forestry mistakenly accessed the property to harvest timber, Sellers reduced his offer to $4,000 and the commissioners voted at the Sept. 4 meeting to decline the lesser amount.

This month, no further word had been heard from Sellers.

“Where does this leave us?” asked board chairman Bud Riviere.

“Is he still interested in the property?” vice chairman Tim Wells asked.

“I’ve had no contact with Mr. Sellers since the last meeting,” Riviere said.

“I think we’re back to Square One,” Wells said. “If he is still interested in the property, he needs to contact us.”
