County School Board Buys More Land

Duplex at Holmes Property... Photos by Barry West

The Coffee County School board announced this week they have purchased land near the property where the new middle school will be built. The land known as the “Holmes property” was bought for $77,000. The board says this is being done so they can add New Union Elementary School to the new sewer line and to straighten the entrance to the new middle school. The board voted 7-0 to declare the duplex located on the property as surplus and will soon put a bid out to have it sold and removed from the property.
