From the Council: At the July 10 Council meeting, a real estate representative from the state of Minnesota met with the Council and
an offer to purchase a small piece of land that MnDOT needs to complete
the bridge replacement under Hywy 91 in 2019. They
purchase .08 acre and rent .11 acre for 5 years for the project to be
done. The offer made for the purchase was $2,059.00 for the .08
and $1,241.00 for the 5 year rent of the .11 acre. A resolution was
made by the Council to accept the offer of $3,300.00 for the sale
and 5 year rent made by the State of Minnesota. If you have any questions, contact one of the Council members.
