‘W’ Purchase Agreement Avoids Auction

The ‘W’, the former West Branch Community Center, was scheduled to go to auction tomorrow.

But now that won’t happen.

West Branch Township and Community Hand-UP have signed a purchase agreement.

During last night’s township board meeting, the nonprofit offered to buy the facility and its contents from the township for $75,000.

The township asked Community Hand-UP to increase their offer to $90,000.

Lisa Johnson of Community Hand-UP said the organization would be willing to pay $85,000 and the township board agreed to that.

Mike Hoey will have much more about this tonight on ABC 10 News Now.
