Lynn to purchase new property, light ball field


The former M&M Restoration property that the Lynn town council has voted to purchase has the equipment and vehicle storage the town of Lynn needs, plus a building that can be turned into a community center, plenty of room for parking and even space for a potential walking track.

LYNN - The Lynn Town Council voted to purchase the property where the former M&M Restoration building is located for $175,000 at its monthly meeting on Monday, March 28.

The council has recently been considering how to give the town more equipment and vehicle storage; an option it previously explored was to build an addition at Fire Station No. 1. However, purchasing the M&M property at 22584 Hwy. 5 North won out because it will give the town more value for its money.
