Commissioners pass sales agreement resolution
Thursday, December 6, 2012
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
At Tuesday's meeting, the Clearfield County Commissioners voted to pass a resolution authorizing Chairman John Sobel to sign the final sales agreement when it is ready for the sale of the Multi-Service Center to Jeff Long/Graystone Court Clearfield LLC.
The sales agreement calls for the building to be sold to Long for $350,000 with a $25,000 deposit, which was paid and $25,000 to be paid at closing.
Long then would pay the county $38,851 in ten annual installments until the building is paid off, which works out to an interest rate of five percent, according to county Solicitor Kim Kesner.
Kesner said he expects the sales agreement to be finalized prior to Christmas.
The commissioners also authorized Sobel to sign a letter stating that the Multi-Service Center property is not subject to any of the covenants present in the nearby office park. Kesner said the Multi-Service Center is not located in the office park and the property has no covenants on it but said Long's attorney wanted a letter from the commissioners assuring them of this.
Long plans to construct a senior housing apartment complex on the site.
The commissioners also voted to:
• approve the appropriation agreement and the lease agreement with the Clearfield County Economic Development Authority. It is a one-year agreement that calls for the county to pay the CCEDC $200,000 for the year to be its economic development agency. McCracken said the commissioners have received assurances from the CCEDC that it would continue to focus on economic development and job creation and keep the lines of communication between the county and the CCEDC by having a commissioner serve as a member of the CCEDC board.
• approve the grant with the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency for Megan's Law registration and verification for the county and Sandy Township booking centers.
McCracken said the commissioners received a call from a resident concerned that logging operations in the area of McGees Mills would have logging trucks crossing the historic covered bridge. McCracken said the bridge has a weight limit and would not be used by logging trucks.
