County buys neighboring apartments

Monday, December 7, 2009

At their weekly meeting this morning, Red Willow County commissioners purchased the big white and gray apartment house at 524 Norris, on the corner north of the courthouse in McCook.

Commissioners unanimously authorized commission chairman Earl McNutt to sign the purchase agreement to buy the apartment house for $50,000 from Stannis and Kenneth Spencer of McCook.

The money will come from the county's jail sinking fund, however, McNutt said, that does not necessarily mean that commissioners plan to build a jail there.

Three of five apartments are rented; tenants have until the closing date of Feb. 1, 2010, to make other living arrangements, county attorney Paul Wood said.
