White Co. Swaps Property with Schools

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

The White County Commissioners approved the transfer of the old White County Middle School from the school system to the county.

County Mayor Denny Wayne Robinson said the future of the property is unknown.

“The County Commission has had many different talks,” Robinson said. “Some talk about a park. Some talk about using the building for storage. We have storage issues. There’s different things out there. It’s been discussed auctioning it off and selling it. There’s nothing really in stone yet.”

Robinson said the property was transferred to compensate the county for property lost to the school system. Findlay Elementary School on Hale Street in Sparta sits on property formally belonging to the county.

“It was just a swap of property from the Board of Education to the county,” Robinson said. “We swapped that property for the old Middle School property.”

The commission approved the land swap at its Monday night meeting.
