This Monday at the Warren County Board of Supervisors meeting, Pablo Diaz of Economic Development asked the Board to approve a check for $310,888.02 to purchase property from Entergy for the purpose of a new port.
Out of that total, the sellers will pay the taxes and recording fees back to the county.
The lot includes 754.37 acres of land. “Some of it is underwater,” clarified Diaz when asked about an earlier description of “650+ acres.”
In addition, two right-of-way instruments will be purchased.
“As a reminder,” said Diaz, “there is a 115 kV line and 500 kV line that runs through the middle of this property that Entergy of course needs to keep a right-of-way so these instruments will allow them to.”
Entergy will pay these taxes and recording fees back to the county leaving them with $304,148.26. The Board initially approved this amount at the meeting, but after some discussion, realized they needed to approve an amendment allowing for the total of $310,888,02, which they voted for unanimously.
