City seeks to sell canning center property

Published: Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 08:22 AM.

The council also voted to reject a Department of Transportation offer to purchase a portion of the city’s property at Dawkins and Main for $4,000 to serve as right-of-way. The city wants to sell the whole property to the state. The property is the site where the canning center is located, said Council Member Tina Sloan. She recommended the council reject the first offer from the DOT.

If the DOT had taken the right of way it wanted, the highway would go right up to the canning center’s front door, Sloan said.

In other business, the city council also approved of the Vernon High School Band Boosters holding a dance at the high school gym following the Homecoming game on Oct. 13.
