County enters deal to save open spaces
The Washington County Board has agreed to join Stillwater Township to buy land for preservation through the county’s voter-approved Land and Water Legacy Program.
Previously, the County Board approved using money from Land and Water Legacy bond funds to purchase 17 acres of land if it is able to negotiate a sale of the property owned by Central Bank at the intersection of County Road 15 (Manning Avenue) and Hwy. 96.
The county would provide up to $84,000 of the Land and Water Legacy bond funds as a portion of the purchase.
