(SHOALS) - The Martin County Commissioners voted to sell 2 of their 4 acres remaining in the WestGate Tech Park to Chris Baugh of Loogootee for $15,000.

The Washington Times Herald reports that Baugh will be building a not-yet-announced business on the acreage. He plans to request tax abatements in the future.

It was discussed at the last redevelopment commission meeting that Baugh may be requesting tax abatement in the future.

Economic Development Director Tim Kinder noted that the 2 acres have not been on the tax rolls in the county for 70-plus years.

Commissioner Dan Gregory said there are covenants and restrictions on buildings built in WestGate that Baugh has agreed to abide by. Gregory wished Baugh good luck with his endeavor.
