Edmonton votes to buy property next to maintenance facility

GLASGOW — Edmonton City Council members voted unanimously Monday to purchase a property adjacent to its maintenance facility for $50,000.

No discussion on the issue occurred after the council emerged from a closed session to discuss the purchase opportunity and personnel. There was just the motion and the vote among the council members present. Billy Jeffries was absent at the meeting that had been moved to 4:30 p.m. instead of the normal 7 p.m. due to the weather.

The Mackey Street lot is approximately an acre, Mayor Howard Garrett said, and it contains a house. The prior owners were the late Gilbert and Ruby Wallace, he said.

After the meeting, which lasted roughly half an hour, Garrett said the city would probably use the property to expand the maintenance department at some point. Right now, the city stores some things at a location near the city lake, in the vicinity of the soon-to-be-constructed bypass and interchange of the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway, he said. Having this space will enable everything to be in one area, he said.

“I think its very much needed,” Garrett said. “We probably will rent the house [at least temporarily] out to get some of that money back in.”

The city may not need the house, just the land around it, he said.
