City won’t lease lake land

Staff Writer

  The city has backed out of a plan to acquire lake land from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
  According to Grenada City Manager Trey Baker, a letter was submitted last week informing the Corps that the city would not pursue the land as promised last year.
  “The letter was pretty straight forward in saying that the city would not be going forward with acquiring the land,” Baker said.
   Last year, the city voted to pursue 82-acres of lake property in hopes of adding space for Parks and Recreation programs such as soccer and baseball. Charles “JoJo” Weather, who was serving as interim city manager, worked out a plan for a potential five-year lease agreement with the Corps.
