Bowling Green Could Begin Using LifeSkills Building as Early as March

The city of Bowling Green could begin using the LifeSkills building as early as March.

Late last year, commissioners voted unanimously to buy the building at 707 East Main Street to keep a halfway house from moving in.

Keeton Facilities had planned to locate a 40 bed facility in the building for people serving the final years of their jail sentences.

Keeton's attorney told WBKO he planned to take whatever action necessary to enforce Keeton's contract, but Mayor Elaine Walker says she hasn't had any communication about that.

In a special meeting on Jan. 7, commissioners approved paying Crye Leike a commission on their purchase of the building, in compensation for the sale to Keeton that didn't go through.
