County plans to buy property on North Main
Placeholder Image
During a special called meeting Wednesday, Bulloch County Commissioners voted to purchase a little over 1.5 acres next door to the Bulloch County Annex on North Main St. When the owner of a motel property offered the county the property about a year ago at $1.2 million, county officials declined, although the property was then appraised at $1.3 million. There were concerns about spending that much on property that would require demolition of old buildings. However, a new deal means the county will purchase the property at a third of the original asking price - $400,000, said Bulloch County’s legal counsel attorney Jeff Akins.
