School Board Update: Former hospital for sale and Nestle lawsuit continues

The School Board met for their bi-monthly meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 17. The board is putting the former Madison County hospital building up for sale and the Department of Revenue is opposing the board’s intervention in the Nestle lawsuit. The board members received an update about the former Madison County hospital building from Chief Financial Officer Ray Griffin. He presented options to the board on how to proceed with placing the building for sale and a price range. The board voted unanimously to list the property at $270,000, give an open listing to all realtors and give the realtor who brings the board the offer they accept a five percent commission. School Board Attorney Tommy Reeves updated the board on Nestle, who is suing Madison County. Nestle wants to cut their property value in half to $22.5 million. The School Board voted unanimously, at their meeting on Jan. 27, to join the county in the lawsuit and split the cost of the lawsuit. There is a hearing set for March 24 for the judge to decide whether the County and School Board can intervene in this lawsuit. The Department of Revenue will be opposing the School Board’s intervention at the hearing. The School Board’s next meeting will be Tuesday, March 3 at 6 p.m.
