The town of Unicoi is offering Johnson City $400,000 to buy Buffalo Valley Golf Course.

Unicoi mayor Johnny Lynch says the town would pay $200,000 up front for the property.

He's asking Johnson City to pay the other $200,000, and then Unicoi would pay Johnson City back over ten years with no interest.

Lynch says the town's priority is to keep the property as a golf course. But he's open to other uses for the grounds.

"We have a group of citizens that live around the golf course that are very interested in forming a group to see if they can lease the property from the town," said Mayor Lynch.

If Unicoi's offer is accepted, Mayor Lynch would like to start working on the grounds this spring.
