River Road Land Dispute

A meeting to resolve a land dispute between the River Road School District and a local business has yielded no answers and now may end up in the courtroom. 

The school district has offered to purchase Clark's Auto Salvage  for 185-thousand dollars in order to build a new school.

But the owners of the salvage yard say their property has a been valued at 850-thousand dollars and want more compensation.

Now that mediation has failed the case is expected to go to court.
