Land donated: The town accepted the donation of about 5 acres that runs along the Duke Power right-of-way between Morrison Farm Road and Stillwater Road. Interim Town Manager David Treme says the town has no immediate or future need for the property given by John Kinley. No substantial structures can be built on the property because of the transmission lines.
Mayor Ronald Wyatt, at the Town Council meeting when the vote was taken, expressed concerns over maintenance, high voltage power/transmission lines and the property being a high tax base for the town. On the upside, he noted portions of the property have lake views.
Public Works Manager Adam Lippard said the public dumps trash on the property.
