TYLER — A Tyler judge prepares to make a decision on property auctioned off last month by Jacksonville’s fading Lon Morris College. Proceedings in bankruptcy court began Monday. One key point of contention: Jacksonville city officials say they have jurisdiction over some of the auctioned property and contend they didn’t clear it for sale. But Jacksonville City manager Mo Raissi tells KETK he’s confident the outcome of the hearing will be positive. Raissi says he feels the property already belongs to the city of Jacksonville, but the judge will make the decision.
