The Plainview ISD board of trustees decided Thursday to relinquish its shate of Tyre King to Hale County, rather than participate in the costly clean up of the 4 million junk tires littering that property in Seth Ward.
The 6-0 unanimously vote at Thursday’s regular board meeting accepted a staff recommendation to transfer its interest in the property to Hale County.
The defunct tire recycling center has been the subject of several legal and criminal actions instigated by the state against its former owner. In September, the property reverted to Hale County, High Plains Underground Water Conservation District and Hale County Noxious Weed District after it drew no bids at a tax foreclosure sale.
