Mayor Tom Lowry and members of the Three Rivers City Commission have agreed to place a resolution for the sale of city-owned property on file for 30 days.
The property in question is a western portion of the former Essex Wire property on Fourth Street.
Union City-based Dove Ag Services is hoping to gain approval for a truck-loading facility and office building. Company officials said a total of nine storage tanks would hold a nitrogen-based fertilizer and plant-nutrition application. The proposed tanks would range in size from two million, to 30,000 to 5,000 gallons.
Unloading would occur primarily by rail, company officials said during Tuesday’s city commission meeting.
No agreement on the development will be in place between the city and Dove Ag Services until the 30-day period expires in early May.
