Town purchases more property on Boddie Street
Nashville’s Town Council approved the sale and purchase of property behind the Police/Fire Complex at its regular meeting on Tuesday night.

The approval comes a little over a year after the town approved another purchase of property at 404 S. Boddie Street. In November 2009, council members approved the purchase, agreeing to pay around $70,000 for the property. 

On Tuesday night, council members approved the purchase of property at 506 S. Boddie Street. The property is owned by Huberta Mae Wilson and sits directly behind the Nashville Police/Fire Complex. The town will pay $70,000 for the property, paying $35,000 on or before December 15 and the remaining $35,000 on or before August 1, 2011.

Town Manager Preston Mitchell, in a separate interview, said Wilson approached Mayor Donald Street about buying the property after seeing the town had bought the property at 404 S. Boddie Street. Mitchell said there are no immediate plans for the property.

“It’s a lot that adjoins behind the fire station and allows for more room for parking and other type of things behind the fire station,” Mitchell said.

A house currently sits on the property but the house was burned in a fire years ago. Mitchell said behind the house is a garage that was converted to a beauty salon.

Council members also voted to enter into a lease with Wilson for the Nails Unlimited business that sits on the property. The lease will be terminated in 90 days, or on March 15, 2011. Wilson will pay the town $1 per month for the property.

Mitchell said Wilson is looking to move her shop to a new location.

Mitchell said the town will eventually put the property on govdeals.com to see if anyone wants to purchase the home or garage on the property. The town also listed the home at 404 S. Boddie Street on govdeals.com and Mitchell said a Texas company won the bid for that and should be moving the home soon.

Council members also voted unanimously to purchase .578 acres of a two and a half acre piece of property at the corner of West Railroad and Smith Streets. The property sits next to the town’s public works and public utilities shop. The action was taken following a closed session on Tuesday night.

The town will purchase the property for $30,000. Oakland Grove Commercial Rentals owns the piece of property.

“It allows for future expansion of the town public works and public utilities shop,” Mitchell said.
