Upon the decision of the Richland Parish School Board to purchase a given piece of property, negotiations with the owner shall begin immediately.  When a problem arises during negotiations which delays acquisition of the property by the Board, expropriation proceedings may ensue as provided by the law to enable the Board to acquire the property.  When possible the School System shall maintain communication with the owner as proceedings develop in order to provide an opportunity to negotiate a purchase rather than resorting to court action.  It is the Board's intent to negotiate reasonably and amicably and to avoid friction when possible while continuing negotiations.
