City Administrator David Dyer said the City of Galva just paid $808 each for the buildings in a tax sale. He said the check was written To the Henry County trustees.

The City has hired a structural engineer which will come on Wednesday to give a report on how structurally sound the buildings are.  The building are currently abandoned.

It will be the Galva Council’s decision on what to do with the buildings.
