Confusion surrounds Higdon Property
“Mr. Shields, with all due respect, I’m not sure that this board can approve anything at this point. The property I understand is under contract, you haven’t acquired it yet,” said Chairman Breedlove. “Until we know what part of the property will be assigned or given for the schools, we really can’t take any action at this time, other than express our willingness that once you acquire the property, we most certainly are interested in being pa rt of that adventure.”
Baldwin asked Commissioner Shields if the property was being purchased for use by the school system. Shields did not say that the property was specifically for the school system and noted that he wanted a plan from MCS to present to commissioners.
“Trying to get in there first,” said Shields.
