Holstein discusses sale of city property

The Holstein City Council met in special session Nov. 20 for the purpose of determining the terms of sale and the sealed bid process of city property at the east intersection of Highways 59 and 20.

The council discussed whether the city could or should require development of the property when it is sold. City Attorney Thad Cosgrove advised the council that development could be a stipulation of the sale. The property is currently zoned agriculture and needs to be re-zoned before it can be sold.

The council asked Cosgrove to research the legalities of re-zoning the property as commercial but limiting the use of that parcel. This will be further discussed at the Dec. 4 council meeting.

No action was taken on Resolution 2017-25 Sale of City Property at East Intersection of highway 59 and Highway 20.
