More on proposed PJC training facilty

December 5, 2008

Spoke with County Attorney Allison Rogers. The actual purchase price for the land is around $2.7 million. The $11 million dollars was gifted in 2005 to PJC. The college was able to get the matching funds passed by the state legislature in 2006.

However, the deal won’t go through unless the county, PJC and Sheriff-elect David Morgan are all on board. The land purchase can be canceled prior to Dec. 18 with no penalty. County gets back its money and the state gets back its funds.

Morgan is reluctant to commit, especially under a pressured deadline.

    the vacant land price is $2.7 million the $11 million from the county and the matching state grant given to PJC put together is $22 million for development of the vacant land such as facilities.

    What was Valentino grousing about a $200,000 penalty if the land deal was squashed?
    And the sheriff’s dept. ends up with $6 million if the entire deal is squashed???

    Are you saying the full purchase price was $2.7 mill? and that the other $11Mill was not coming from county coffers?
    So the total purchase price was still $12Mill, right?
