It looks like the Wake County school system may have gotten an extra $43.000 from the Town of Matthews foe the land turned over by disgraced House Speaker Jim Black
As noted in today's article by Melinda Johnston, school officials and the town have preliminarily agreed on a sale price of $338,000 for the land. This comes after the school board rejected earlier this month an offer of $295,427 for the land.
The deadline for a competing offer for the property was 9 a.m. today. I've asked but not found out yet whether any offer came in.
Wake says no one else submitted a competing bid by the Monday deadline.
