During a special meeting of the Saline County Board Monday at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Saline County Courthouse, the board approved a counter offer be made to an interested buyer of a piece of county real estate.
The property in question is the northwest corner 1.5 acre property at the state Route 13 bypass and Veteran's Drive that the county had put up for sale.
An interested buyer had made a offer on the prime commercial real estate working through a realtor who along with the buyer remains unnamed.
After going into executive session on the real estate matter, a common practice in Illinois local government, the board approved a motion for a counter offer without announcing the dollar figure.
The board adjourned after this single matter was settled.
