CELINA - Officials intend to purchase 50 acres of land along Meyer Road to allow for a privately-owned solar energy plant and eventually six sludge ponds for the city.
Council members on Monday evening unanimously approved an ordinance to enter into an option purchase agreement with landowners Floyd and Joanne Heiby for $5,000. The city has until April 1 - with a potential extension to July 1 - to actually purchase the 50 acres for $600,000. [More]
