STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Oktibbeha County supervisors approved a proposal of $1.5 million to purchase property for the Starkville Oktibbeha Consolidated School District, reports the Starkville Daily News.
The approval, passed on a 3-2 vote, came during the Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday.
The property is on Lynn Lane and could be used for the school district's administration.
The newspaper reports the offer may not be accepted by the property owner.
Board President Orlando Trainer says the property is currently appraised at approximately $2 million but hopes the county can save money with the lower offer.
Supervisor John Montgomery voted against the offer. He told the newspaper the county has provided more than enough space for the superintendent and their office space.
