West Point’s City Council last week approved a plan that will allow the city and Cuming County Agricultural Society to swap property.

The deal means the city will spend $33,850 for the former Gerhold Concrete property that the Ag Society now owns.

That amount is the difference between the appraised value of the property ($65,346) and the value of 6.3 acres of city property that the Ag Society wanted. That property was valued at $31,496 and is located south and west of the tractor pull area.

The city was interested in purchasing the former Gerhold property, located north of the Shirley & Jake Weber Education Center (Northeast Community College’s West Point facility). Plans are to make the property available for the proposed career and technical education center.

The education center is a joint project of the city, Northeast Community College and West Point Community Foundation.

Schools and school life is so bewildering and understudies need to get everything the all the more quickly. However, ensuing to getting into this stage they come to consider the difficulties they have to look in http://cliftjens.com and distinctive assignments that isn't as basic as they think it some time as of late. This is my unassuming direction to each one of you that you should impact a strong base in school so to perform well in school.
