Medaryville council approves selling of land
Medaryville Town Council members will soon be going through the process of selling property as a local property owner has an interest.
Town council members discussed, during a regular meeting on March 21, selling a grass lot that is owned by the town. The lot was part of the property the town purchased last year from St. Henry Catholic Church-Diocese of Lafayette. The property that is across the street from the town hall was purchased in anticipation of it being the new location for a water tower.
Town council president Robert Schultz said the couple that purchased the church would like to also purchase the lot to build a garage.
Town attorney Amber Lapaich said the property must be sold through a bid process, according to Indiana law.
The council approved that the property is considered surplus and can be sold starting at a minimum purchase price of $1,500.
