The Baxley City Council held their regular meeting Jan. 24. The council discussed two bids on a farm lease of 25.6 acres, for property owned by the city, located on Highway U.S. 1 South. City Manager Jeff Baxley made a recommendation to go with the high bid given by BASH Farms (Micheal John Baxley and Shawn Shipes) for $2,432.00 annually ($95.00 per acre) and would be contingent upon meeting all contract requirements. Council member Mickey Bass made a motion to approve the manager’s recommendation. Council member Betty Livingston made a second and the item was unanimously approved.
