Panel to tour early learning center, offer advice to supes / October 15, 2018

A three-person ad hoc committee appointed by Halifax County Board of Supervisors chairman Dennis Witt will meet Wednesday, at 2 p.m. at the Cluster Springs Early Learning Center.

Committee members Garland Ricketts, Chris Hudson and Kristy Johnson are expected to tour the facility and later make a recommendation to supervisors about how to dispose of the property. It was returned to the county last summer after the school system announced it would no longer need the facility to house its early learning program.

Not only does the property include the building, it also includes a sizeable recreational field, which has been used for many years by local softball and baseball teams.

At least one offer has been made to purchase the building. Petrina Carter, executive director of the Tri-County Agency, is seeking to buy it.

In August, Carter approached supervisors seeking to purchase the building, explaining it would allow her agency to consolidate several of its Head Start programs, now held in various locations.

Carter has returned once again to supervisors saying that she has funding available to purchase the building.
