City to negotiate with homeowner who purchased property from ex-mayor

-A A +A
By Danna Zabrovsky

La Grange will negotiate with a man who purchased a home from the city as sold unlawfully by the city’s former mayor. 

In December, George Richard Hall, a public works employee, bought a city-owned home on the 400 block of First Avenue from former La Grange Mayor Elsie Carter.

Carter sold the $85,000 home for less than 20 percent of its value, after learning that Hall had been living in a tent in Mac’s Lake.

Hall lived in the home rent-free, while making repairs to the property using supplies the city paid for.
