The Town of Liberty Grove could acquire some key waterfront properties in Gills Rock if electors give officials their blessing. The four contiguous properties are currently owned by Rick Johnson and Elizabeth Weborg. Town Chairperson John Lowry says the current prices are at below market value and a second meeting would be held if the electors say yes to the purchase to discuss what they would like to see happen on the parcels. That could be over a year away, thanks to some interesting terms of the agreement with one of the properties’ owners according to Lowry.
The electors previously voted against purchasing the properties four years ago. Liberty Grove will host its meeting of the electors on October 16th at the town hall, the same night it will present its 2019 budget.
