The daily newspaper that serves Vermont's capital of Montpelier and the city of Barre says it has reached an agreement to sell its Barre headquarters.
In a story posted on the website of the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus Wednesday night, Publisher R. John Mitchell says a purchase and sale agreement has been signed with a real estate company owned by Thomas and Karen Lauzon. Thomas Lauzon is the mayor of Barre.
The building was listed at $895,000, but the sale price wasn't disclosed. The sale is contingent on an inspection of the building.
Mitchell says the Times Argus is now looking for a downtown location for its news operation, which won't be affected by the sale.
