Offer to sell Western outreach considered

Logan County Children’s Services has been given an offer to sell the property that currently houses its Western Outreach Center.

Executive director Melanie Engle told Logan County Commissioners Tuesday in a quarterly meeting that children’s services board of directors first learned of the possibility of selling the building and land at 520 Garfield Ave. last week during a regular meeting.

Mrs. Engle indicated the agency would like to work with the commissioners and Logan County Prosecutor’s Office if necessary to work out a potential deal.

Commissioners said the land may have to first be placed out for bid, or a trade arrangement would have to be worked out.

Mrs. Engle said the Western Neighborhood Outreach Center will continue, just perhaps at a new location if a deal to sell or trade the property is reached.
