NEW ALBANY —
Gardenour said that may be the case, but that might upset homeowners in that area.
“Well, I’m sure the neighbors probably aren’t real happy about that, either,” Gardenour said.
The board voted to purchase the property with Gardenour and Jessica Knable, board member, opposing the vote.
Snyder also brought forward 3590 Edwardsville Galena Road as a property to consider purchasing.
The lot, which is across from Highland Hills Middle School, was sought when the district built the school, but it wasn’t available.
Snyder said the lot is empty now except for possibly a toolshed, and the owner contacted him last week about its purchase. The board approved exploring the option unanimously.
