Back to main story:

By Ed Waggener

Mayor Curtis Hardwick announced to the Columbia City Council that he had been approached by a person inquiring about the possibility of a sale of six acres of property the city owns on the Adair County Memorial Veterans Bypass.

The idea was briefly discussed, but came to a quick, unanimous vote, on a motion by Council Member Ronald Rogers, with a second by Craig Dean, that the land is not for sale at this time. Council Members Linda Waggener, Craig Lasley, Pam Hoots, and Mark Harris concurred.


Dr. Rogers noted that the land is now being used by the Adair County Regional Jail. He and Council Member Craig Dean noted that the ACRJ helps the City and the Community in many ways, particularly with work by residents of the Class D facility.

Dr. Rogers said that the production of fresh, nutritious food not only provides better meals for the inmates, it also helps cut food bills at the facility.

The land was given to the City by the late Jim Blair.

Citizen Bill Anderson, who was in the audience, told the Council that Mr. Blair had hoped the land would be used for a park, but that it's use or sale was at the discretion of the City Council.

Council member Craig Dean said that since the City doesn't need the funds, and the land was being put to good use, he thought it best not to sell at this time.
