Marion County Commission Transfers Deed to Worthington

Posted: Updated:
The town of Worthington's revitalization plans received some help recently from the Marion County Commission.

Commissioners agreed to transfer property to the town to use as a parking lot on Maple Street.

Town officials said this is just one part of the plans to bring life back to downtown and the riverbank.

"And that's why we're thrilled to get this deed. We can make the property nice for the people that live here, and it's a benefit to the whole county, really. It's a positive thing," said Mayor Sandra Hulsey.

Hulsey said divers will be conducting a mussel survey of the river later this month, where the Corps of Engineers will come in and rebuild the river bank.
