The Spencer County Fiscal Court voted Nov. 19 to move forward in purchasing the current Spencer County Cooperative Extension Service Building, which is set to become the new headquarters of Spencer County Emergency Medical Services.
Magistrate David Goodlett, member of the building committee, reported that the extension building was appraised at $290,000 — that’s $40,000 higher than the $250,000 purchase price discussed between the Extension Board and the Fiscal Court.
The land on which the building sits, which the county already owns, appraised at $75,000, Goodlett said.
Goodlett made a motion to purchase the lease and the lease hold agreement and all improvements thereon for 66 Spears Drive for the terms originally set forth by the Extension Board. Magistrate Hobert Judd seconded the motion.
The board’s offer is $250,000, and comes with these terms:
•No accumulating interest
•Monthy payments of $1,875 for 120 months (10 years)
Magistrates again specified that the building was to be purchased for the exclusive use of EMS.
The motion passed unanimously.
Glen Goebel, who sits on the Extension Board, said the Extension Service hopes to be in its new building off Ky. 44 near the Spencer County Elementary School by the end of the year.
To tie up loose ends, Magistrate Jerry Davis made a motion to reject the building proposals presented to the court in the past, when it was considering building a new EMS facility. Goodlett seconded the motion, and it passed unanimously.
