It is my understanding that when the new fire station was built a few years back that the land was purchased from councilman Hope for a Million dollars, this would seem like a conflict of interest if this is true since he voted on it. If this is true i would never vote for someone like that. Can anyone verify if this is true.

If by "new fire station" you mean the FD Headquarters on N. Main, I live next door and I was told the property was owned by the Clark family -- who also owned my property and my next door neighbor's property since at least 1910. I was also told the property had an old vacant house on it that burned down suspiciously before it became a fire department.

Checking the public records from 2000 and 2001, it seems to support what I heard about it being in the Clark family. There are a lot of names associated with the deed so I'm thinking the property was left to some heirs. Nowhere did I see anything mentioned of Mr. Hope in the records. So in summary, I think the story about Councilman Hope would be untrue.

Good to air these rumors. It's never any good to let these kinds of things fester.

Hi All. Actually my father owned the property before it was sold to Yates Springs. I don't have time this morning to complete the search but here are the deed documents.
