Liberty council pursues purchase of land for water well

At their meeting Tuesday, the Liberty City Council’s voted to move forward with plans to buy some land on the Hwy 146 Bypass to be used as the site of a third water well. We have reported the city’s experts say there is a strong possibility there is water at 1700 feet on land adjacent to the Stripes Convenience Store on Hwy 146 at the bypass. Tuesday the Liberty City Council approved a plan to buy 4 acres and an easement of 80 feet from tract’s owner, the Royal Bank of Canada. In June, Liberty businessman and former Council member Frank Jordan told Liberty Council members he and an unnamed associate were interested in buying the entire 32 acre tract for future development. Later, Frank Jordan returned to tell Liberty City Council to say negotiations between himself and the Canadian Bank had broken down. Tuesday Council members voted to offer the Royal Bank of Canada 45 cents per square foot or a total just under $80,000 for the four acres and the easement. Negotiations are expected to continue, depending on whether or not the property owners agree to the deal being offered.
