Town of Liberty Grove Board members will consider the next step in the acquisition of three properties in Gills Rock, including 440-feet of shoreline. Town electors approved the $1.45-million dollar purchase back in October. At the board’s regular meeting Wednesday evening, they’ll consider a resolution to sell a $1.5-million dollar promissory note through Robert Baird to fund the purchase. Town Administrator Bud Kalms says Baird’s representative will spell out the details of the loan and bring the purchase closing close to an end.
If all goes according to plan, Kalms hopes the town will have the money in hand by year’s end to complete the purchase. The town board meets at 6:45 Wednesday night in the Town Hall on Old Stage Road in Sister Bay.
