City of Kirksville purchases land next to city hall
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
The City of Kirksville now has a new piece of property.
Monday night, council members approved the purchase of land located right next to Kirksville City Hall.
The price tag on the plot totals $335,000. According to city documents, the land was appraised for $540,000.
But, the owners of the property recently reached out to the city with the lower price.
Those owners also have plans to make a $205,000 donation to the city to match the amount established by the appraisal.
Right now, city staffers have no specific plans in mind for the land, but hope to meet with possible community partners to explore opportunities.
