VALE – The Vale City Council isn’t ready to cut a final deal on a new city hall.

At least not yet.

On Tuesday, June 23, the council decided to put off a final decision on the plan to buy the former Umpqua Bank building in Vale to give City Attorney Larry Sullivan time to review the financial package for the sale.

“The city of Vale will purchase the building. We are going forward. I think it is a good deal for us,” said Vale Mayor Mike McLaughlin.

The council will consider the purchase a second time July 14 . . .
