Montgomery Co Wants Land Split
Tuesday, 27 October 2009

October 27--  Montgomery County commissioners say they will go to court if necessary to gain half of a 56-acre industrial site which they own jointly with Toombs County.

The land on Highway 280 on the eastern side of Ailey was purchased by both counties in 2003 using an economic development grant from the state of Georgia.

In a letter to Toombs Commissioners, Montgomery Commission Chairman Brandon Braddy requested half of the property be deeded to Montgomery County by the end of the year.  The county is considering other uses for the property and Chairman Braddy says the nearly seven years since the purchase has allowed ample time for joint development of the property.

If Toombs County refuses the request, Braddy says the county will file a request for partitioning of real property in Montgomery County Superior Court.

Toombs Commissioners have yet to take any action on the request.
