The Burns Board of Commissioners voted Monday night to make an offer to outright purchase Town Hall from the Water Authority of Dickson County or Mayor Landon Mathis said the town could consider moving out of the building. Burns entered into a lease-to-own agreement with the water authority when it formed six years ago for the former Turnbull Utility District office for a total price of $218,000, which Mathis called basically a “tote-the-note deal.” The mayor told the board Monday the town has paid over $55,000 for the building since entering the contract in March 2007. Mathis said it wouldn’t hurt to make the water authority board an offer to buy the building at less than what is owed on it. “A lot of work needs to be done here,” Mathis said of the building. He pointed out the town already owns property that could house the town offices and cut the cost of the building out of the town’s budget. The commissioners voted unanimously to offer the water authority $125,000, which Mathis said the town would have to borrow if the WADC board agrees to the sale.
