WASHINGTON COUNTY -- The Washington County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to pay as much as $314,900 to buy a home needed for the widening of Longmeadow Road near its intersection with Marsh Pike.
The county reached the agreement after more than a year of working with the family that owns the house at 19329 Longmeadow Road, Real Property Administrator Joe Kuhna said.
The house is one of three that will need to be torn down for the widening project, Kuhna said. The other two, on either side of the remaining house, were purchased by the county last year, he said.
The $314,900 price reflects the home's assessed value of $280,000, plus replacement housing and relocation assistance for the family, Kuhna said.
