Olla officials authorize sale of town easement

The Olla Town Council authorized Mayor Rhonda Elliott to establish a fair market price for a town easement and to go through the ordinance process to possibly sell the easement on town land to Olla Police Chief John Stott. Council member Al Cassels abstained from the vote due to his personal connection in the matter.

Chief Stott was on the agenda and brought up the personal request before the Council to explain that he is currently trying to purchase land in town from Council member Cassels. He said the land has two easements and his request is that the town would grant him use of the easement near Blake Street or allow him to purchase it from the town.
