2. Under the Financial Management Committee please add this report from Bethany Presbyterian Church on the sale of a piece of property.
At the May 2019 meeting of Presbytery, the following action was taken:
The Financial Management Committee recommends that the Presbytery of Boise concur with the Session of Bethany Presbyterian Church by giving (1) permission to list land on May 6 with an asking price of $199,000, and (2) permission for the Financial Management Committee to approve any terms of sale on behalf of the Presbytery and report at the next meeting of the Presbytery should an offer come in between meetings of the Presbytery. Further, the Financial Management Committee asks the Session of Bethany to consider keeping a presence in the ministries that will come from the use of these funds and that the Session and the Bethany Presbyterian Nursing Home Visioning Committee keep the Presbytery informed and advised to the outcome of missions ensuing from use of these funds.
Presbytery voted to approve the motion.
The asking price for the property was subsequently reduced to $175,000, and in November, Bethany received a full-price cash offer. Subsequently, Marilyn Blair-Clausen, who was still chair of the Presbytery finance committee at that time, polled the committee. Three out of the five members of the finance committee responded about the sales agreement for the property once owned by Presbyterian Community Care Center. They all agree with the terms of sale.
The sale closed on January 20, 2021
