II. Committee of the Whole
It was announced that after the meeting on June 28, 2006, wherein
the board voted to condemn the property of F.O.G. Inc., on Maple
Avenue and the property of Mouwafak & Hanan Ghannam on Buffington
Avenue that the owners reduced their offer to sell the six Maple
Avenue lots to $360,000.00 and the two Buffington Avenue lots to
$120,000.00. There is the need for quick action in order to
eliminate the expense of an eminent domain suit.
Jim Sottile moved, seconded by Mike Perry, the following:
Resolved, Marshall University purchase the six lots of F.O.G.
Inc., on Maple Avenue for $360,000.00 and the two lots of the
Ghannams on Buffington Avenue for up to $120,000.00 and pay a
real estate commission of $17,200.00. If the owners do not agree
to these prices the President shall continue with eminent domain
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
