October 3-- The city of Lyons is buying the abandoned National Guard Armory building on South Victory Drive.
The state of Georgia is selling the building and gave Lyons first refusal, according to Lyons Mayor Willis NeSmith.
"It's just too nice a building to let it go elsewhere. They offered it to us first and we decided we wanted to buy it," he said.
The city is paying $130,000 for the property and is considering options for its use.
"We have not made any definite decisons on it. We have groups interested in buying or renting it from us, but we're going to take our time and try to make the right decision on that," Mayor NeSmith reports.
