Yesterday, we reported on the three Boone-based appraisers who were disciplined for faulty appraisals made when Watauga County was purchasing land for the new Watauga High School campus. Watauga County’s Deputy County Manager, Deron Geouque, contacted High Country Radio with a clarification.
Geouque explained that the County paid $842,000 for two parcels of land that were owned by the same person.
The County paid $95,000 for the first parcel, which was roughly 1.004 acres.
Watauga County also purchased the other parcel for $747,000. This second parcel of land was roughly 3.174 acres and contained a house.
Geouque said Watauga County is now selling .454 acres of the land and the house with an asking price of $340,000.
The remaining land from the two parcels was used during the construction of the school.
