Bowling Green Wants to Buy LifeSkills Site

The attorney for a half-way house wanting to locate a facility near downtown Bowling Green is not backing down, despite plans by the city of Bowling Green to purchase the building in question.

In a closed session Dec. 11, The Bowling Green City Commission unanimously voted to purchase the LifeSkills building at 707 E. Main Street.

But the attorney for Keeton Corrections says---not so fast.

Rick Walter tells WBKO that Keeton has a valid contract to purchase the building and plans to take whatever action necessary to enforce it.

The possible location of a 40-bed half way house has been the source of controversy for the last few months
