Put it on the market, councilmen say
The consensus of an Oconee County committee is that 502 E. Main Street has served its purposes as county offices, and it’s now time for the old house to be put on the market. By placing it on the market, Councilman Paul Corbeil says it could mean that property can be restored to the city and county’s tax base. And Corbeil said new ownership might dovetail with Walhalla’s plans for downtown re-vitalization. As example, Corbeil referred to an old home next door which a developer saved from a wrecking ball. The county’s real estate, facilities and land management committee last night instructed the county administrator to seek an appraisal and request for qualifications from interested real estate agents.
