CLINTON — The Clinton City Council voted to terminate an agreement with the Clinton School District that would have transferred real estate and dedicated Rolling Hills Drive to the city.

At-large councilman Mark Vulich said since the “voters said they didn’t want (a new fire station),” he was not interested in owning the road.

Vulich said he wanted the road for the fire station.

The fire facilities referendum, which included plans to construct a new fire station out near the road and property, failed earlier this month.

“We don’t need extra land just to have more grass to mow,” At-large councilman Ron Mallicoat said.

Last June, the city council and school board agreed to the tentative transfer deal. However, since the council struck down the agreement Tuesday (each member voted no), a potential lawsuit could loom, City Attorney Paul Walter said.

Since the city was contractually obligated to acquire the land, the school district could file a lawsuit. After the meeting, Walter said he will notify the school district of the vote and then it will be the school district’s decision on what action to take.

The real estate is part of the Eagle Heights Elementary School site located at 1350 Main Ave. The agreement would have dedicated Rolling Hills Drive from Main Avenue to Eagle Heights Elementary School to the city.
