Town ponders future of Gills Rock home

A house is standing between you and the further development of Mariners Park in the Town of Liberty Grove. The town sold the home formerly owned by Betty Weborg to Stefanie Burke last year for $1,000, giving her until the end of 2021 to move the home. It is estimated to cost $20,000 to move the home to a new location. By removing the home, the town will be able to determine whether some of the other buildings on the property should be saved or demolished. The house was still standing on the property as of Tuesday and Liberty Grove Town Chairperson John Lowry says it is time for the board to determine the next steps.



By removing the house and the two adjacent buildings, Lowry says work could begin to install walking paths and park benches on the property. It would mark the most significant progress made on land since the town purchased the Gills Rock parcels in 2018 approximately $1.5 million. The issue is expected to be discussed at their next meeting scheduled for  February 2nd.
