The owner, David Diehl offered the property for sale. The county will pay the assessed value of the land, $9,720, with funds from capital outlay.

This parcel is a wedge with some 60 feet of waterfront. The county will now have 350 feet of waterfront with this purchase.

County Planner Alan Pierce said the cost is roughly equal to the amount received from the Eastpoint Minimart for an encroachment onto county land in the same area, so in some sense that will balance out the withdrawal from capital outlay.


County to hire temporary office worker

County commissioners voted unanimously to let the planning office hire a temporary worker for August and September, since one of the front staff will be out for six to eight weeks with knee replacement and another staff person has some extended time they will be off.

The temporary worker will not receive any benefits and will be paid the same as other part-time workers at $10 an hour.
