Polk wants to remove Jervey-Palmer tanksPublished 10:00am Monday, November 26, 2012
Removing tanks costs less than study
After being requested by the Town of Tryon to conduct a phase II study on the Jervey-Palmer building, Polk County plans to ask Tryon if it would rather the county simply remove the tanks.
The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, Nov. 19 and directed staff to approach Tryon with the proposal.
Polk County has offered to give Tryon the Jervey-Palmer building, with Tryon having someone interested in taking the building in exchange for paying for the town a new maintenance building.
