Business owner fights county for land

 April 11, 2007

Thomasville-- Just a few weeks after Thomas County made an offer to buy the property where J-Man Auto Sales now sits, owner Patrick Wilson says he's been served with a subpoena.

He says the county is trying to use eminent domain to take the land, to build a new courthouse. He thinks the way they're going about it is unfair.

"The offer that they gave me it just, its not enough.  I've been getting the price of buildings and property and it's no where close to what its going to take to move," said Wilson.

He will go to court on April 30th to plead his case.  He says if he has to move, all he wants is enough money to reopen his shop somewhere else and to be able to stay in business.
