Marshall County commissioners approved a $95,677 purchase of 6.2 acres north of Subway in east Marysville Monday.

On Oct. 26, commissioners entered into a purchase agreement with Cope Development, Marysville. At the time the agreement was made, a $5,000 escrow from the county was given to Cope Development, in case the board decided not to buy the land. The escrow is to be added to the land’s price for a total of $100,677. The agreement stated the land purchase would hinge on the results of a soil test.
