4 The Sun, Wednesday, July 17, 1991 City jail purchase hits snag Willamina's effort to buy the city's original city hall and jail building, along with the land on which it sits, is at a standstill, awaiting contact with unexpected heirs to the property, the city council learned July 11. Two of four lots that make up the jail site have heirs, city attorney Jerry Hart told the council. The heirs, a woman and her two brothers, childrun of the late Sam Barber, have yet to be contacted, he said. When they are, they will be asked to deed the property to back to the city. The sister lives in McMinnville and her two brothers in Coos Bay, Hart said. The dilapidated building sits on land at the foot of B Street on the edge of Willamina Creek. The city council voted last year to pay $1,000 for the property to owner Lloyd Ray, whose affairs are managed by a conservator. Plans are to transform the land into a park and restore the building for use as a museum. Marion County has approved the sale of Ray's portion of the property, Hart said. In other business: City raises. The council voted to approve 6 percent raises for city employees, as budgeted for the 1991-92 fiscal year. Police report.
