Henderson County commissioners turned “thumbs down” Wednesday morning on a proposal for the county to purchase the 32-acre Lake Osceola.

Osceola owner Todd Leoni has faced a number of issues with the lake and the aging dam in recent years, and earlier this summer he offered to sell the lake to the county for $3 million.

After a brief discussion of the issue at their meeting Wednesday morning, County Commission Chairman Michael Edney said “It is a potential opportunity, but I don’t think the county is in a position to consider it.”
