Commissioners Discuss Demolishing Old Sheriff’s Building

At the regular Meeting of the Lee County Commissioners’ Court on Monday, April 24, 2017, the Court agreed to allow Lexington to again use the County’s lot on Belton Street for the upcoming Lexington Homecoming 2017. This site is often the location of the Antique Tractor exhibit that is featured during Homecoming each year.

The Commissioners also proclaimed April 30 through May 7, 2017 as Soil & Water Stewardship Week.

After hearing that the cost of demolishing the Old Sheriff’s building at 424 S Main would cost in the neighborhood of $65,000, the Court went into Executive Session to discuss the matter. After the Executive Session, the Court decided to take no action at this time.

The Court then heard a report concerning the repair and renovation of the Fletcher Home and the two cottages associated with it. After considerable searching for Vendors, Centex Foundation Repair submitted a proposal to repair the foundation of the main house for $7,900. This proposal was accepted by the Court. The Court also agreed to re-issue the Request for Bids for the remainder of the needed repairs and renovation of the Fletcher Compound.

The Court also agreed to make available for sale the County property on HY 77 in Lexington between Peterson’s and the Precinct #3 Building, (Wilson Boyd Building). There are no offers or bids for this property at this time.
