HOUSTON COUNTY: Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver and members of the Houston County Commission, published the agenda for the January 6, 2022 Administrative Meeting.
Do you notice what is missing?
You are right!!! The sale of the Houston County Farm Center.
In December 2021 Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver and members of the Houston County Commission voted to sell the Houston County Farm Center for $ 2.2 million dollars to a Tampa Florida Developer.
WHAT RSN DOES NOT UNDERSTAND…
REVENUE COMMISSIONER STATES TAX VALUE
COMMISSION CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSIONERS WILLING TO SELL
FOR $ 2.2 MILLION OR EVEN $ 2.5 MILLION
The item was a surprise move which Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver and the entire Houston County Commission was hiding from the public.
A motion was made after the Commission caught extreme heat, if the commission received a offer of $ 2.5 million dollars they would sell it.
Well, Dothan Commissioners, led by D-4 Commissioner John Ferguson and D-5 Commissioner Gant Pearce, voted unanimous to offer $ 2.5 million to purchase the Houston County Farm Center.
D-3 Dothan Commissioner Bradley Bedwell, who is the commissioner over the District where the Farm Center sits, said he and fellow Dothan Commissioners were concerned over the 40 acres of prime property on Ross Clark Circle. That is the reason for the City of Dothan offer the purchase the property.
FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON - the Houston County Commission is once again hiding the item from the public with no mention of the offer of the City of Dothan.
THE HOUSTON COUNTY COMMISSION NOR THE DOTHAN CITY COMMISSION were aware the City of Dothan owns 16% of the property.
