Travis County Commissioners didn't take any moves to block the planned purchase of a lot in downtown Austin, clearing the way for the deal to close tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock.
As KUT News reported two weeks ago, the county will pay $21,750,000 for the downtown block next to Republic Square Park.
County Judge Sam Biscoe says that’s half a million more than the appraised value.
“But I think that the location, more than justifies that. Plus it’s the size that we need,” Biscoe told KUT.
