The Macon County Planning Board held a special called meeting Thursday, Dec. 12, to review feedback from department heads concerning surplus properties currently owned by the county. At the October meeting, the board, at the request of the county commissioners, considered various county owned parcels of land and potential uses for them. At the conclusion of that meeting, the board members chose to approach various department heads to see whether the properties could be put to use by the different entities.
According to County Planner Matt Mason, an email was distributed to request feedback from three departments returning comments.
“The Health Department is not interested in the property, the Solid Waste Department is interested in a couple of pieces, including the old school, and Emergency Management is interested in the old school,” said Mason.
