Washington County went to settlement Friday with Hagers Crossing Multifamily LLC for the purchase of 16.5 acres for almost $1.6 million.
The signing took place Friday morning, County Attorney John M. Martirano said. The Washington County Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 on Tuesday to give the final go-ahead on the purchase of the land for a planned West City elementary school.
David C. Lyles signed the papers for the seller and was listed as a member of the limited liability corporation, Martirano said.
Christopher Joliet, a private attorney authorized by the county to handle real estate settlements, signed for the county, he said.
Commissioners Ruth Anne Callaham, John Barr and William McKinley voted in favor of the purchase. Board President Terry Baker and Commissioner Jeffrey A. Cline cast the dissenting votes.
Hagers Crossing Multifamily purchased the property last year from a holding company for $525,000. The cost to the county was to be $1.5 million, plus brokerage fees and closing costs, Director of Public Works Joseph Kroboth told the commissioners on Tuesday.
