Community Building Purchased
After several months of consideration, the council voted to proceed with purchase for $1, of the Newman Grove Community Building from the Community Club.
City Attorney Dan Fullner will present a purchase agreement for this property at the council’s next meeting, as well as a lease agreement to be signed by the community club.
The lease agreement will include a provision that the community club continues maintenance and improvements in the building.
Under city ownership, insurance costs will be reduced, and the building will also be eligible for grants.
