Sell, sell, sell! The county won't get another chance for an offer like this, especially with the offer to write the "check" then and there! The home would be going into the hands of an organization that is progressive and expanding. Someone who just makes an appearance at the meeting indicates to me that their intentions are good...SELL! If the legislature doesn't sell then we need to vote them out! The county legislature has been "looking a gift horse in the mouth."

There were a couple of good reasons why questions were not permitted last night and instead will most likely take place during a special meeting next month: 1. It was a late addition to the agenda and as such, the public and the legislature did not have ample time to properly research the buyers and come prepared for the right questions to ask. 2. This buyer has not yet placed a $1.6 million escrow deposit to go along with the offer. Since the legislature refused to entertain the previous offer because a deposit had not yet been made, it wouldn't look good if they allowed it to happen in this instance.

There is no contract signed or deposit made. Chairman Gould said that there will be a special meeting of the legislature for the sole purpose of questioning the proposed purchasers when those two items are in place.

No questions asked for the public record on this harrowing issue?Was there a shoe box full of money out behind the dumpster after this close encounter of the brief kind?"Move along-Nothing to see here."

Per Chairman Jay Gould, R-Ashville, the group did not take questions during public session.

Gould would not allow questions to be asked, because he said if they were allowed, the questioning would last two hours, on top of the regular meeting. Mr. Gould, did you have someplace else to be? Selling the County home is a big deal and lots of folks are going to have lots of questions. I think it was 100% wrong of you not to allow questions !

This sounds like a great deal. Can the legislature get the sale done this time?
