HAWTHORNE, Fla. (WCJB) - It’s a property that has gone to the dogs, and Alachua County commissioners want to give it to the city of Hawthorne.

Commission Chair Marihelen Wheeler sent Mayor Jacquelyn Randall a letter offering eight parcels of land within Hawthorne city limits that are now used as a dog park.

County tax records indicate each one is valued at $11,000.

The letter indicates the county maintains the property, but it would become the responsibility of the city, should they choose to accept the gift.
