MAYVILLE – The Jamestown Post-Journal reported over the weekend that the Chicago-based company that initially wanted to purchase the county home will no longer be considered as a buyer.
According to an article in Saturday’s Post-Journal, the offer that was submitted by William “Avi” Rothner – the owner of Altitude Health Services Inc. – is no longer being considered. The offer called for purchasing the home at a cost of $16.5 million and also meeting 14 different terms of sale that were laid out by the county legislature.
The article also said that County executive Greg Edwards will again be working with the marketing firm Marcus and Millichap to seek other offers for the home.
The news of Rothner no longer being considered comes after the county legislature twice voted against selling the county home to him. The first vote in January was 16 to 9, while the second vote in February was 15 to 9.
