Property purchase on commissioner agenda

Corsicana — The purchase of property to become the new home of the Precinct 1 County Barn is on Tuesday’s Navarro County Commissioners Court agenda.

The Navarro County Commissioners Court is scheduled to meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the County Courtroom of the Navarro County Courthouse. The meeting was moved to Tuesday instead of the normal fourth Monday session due to the Memorial Day holiday.

Precinct 1 Commissioner Jason Grant was authorized to negotiate the purchase of the property by commissioners. The present Precinct 1 barn property at the corner of North 45th Street and West State Highway 31 was sold to a developer several years ago, but the county has been allowed to use it since the sale.

• Specific Use Permit for O’Brien Energy to locate a temporary water pumping station in the lakeshore area proposed to be located just west of SECR 3130 and north of SECR 3100.
