G.I. City Administrator: County Sale Better Choice for City Building

Posted: Updated:

The city of Grand Island plans to discuss the sale of the old Workforce Development building in the coming weeks.

They've already got an offer.

Last month, the Hall County Board of Supervisors voted to buy it for $600,000.

That's above its value, according to the city.

G.I.'s Utility Department also expressed interest, but the county's offer may take them out of the running.

"State statute prohibits utilities from making a bid and paying in excess of that appraised value, so from the city's perspective overall with the big picture it probably makes more sense to go forward with the county's offer," said G.I. City Administrator Mary Lou Brown.

Hall County wants to use the building as a temporary court house while the current one is renovated.

The city council has not yet listed the topic on a meeting agenda.
