The Town of Liberty Grove can proceed with the purchase of three properties in Gills Rock, including 440-feet of shoreline. Electors voted in favor of the $1.45-million purchase 111-to-19. Voters had rejected a previous purchase propsal eight-years ago. Town Clerk Bud Kalms says this time the price and other factors were right.
Kalms says voters will ultimately decide how the property will be used. He expects Liberty Grove to close the deal in December.
