The City of Durand is taking sealed bids on an approximate quarter acre of industrial property on Goodall Road, with a minimum bid of $158,000, it was recently disclosed. With that price tag, questions began swirling. City Manager Colleen O'Toole said on Saturday "that price is accurate. There is interest in a cell tower developed on the site."
For those wondering if this land is or would have been part of the Project Tim footprint, she said it is not. "This is a rather small parcel and not something they needed."
One of the conditions of the sale is that the property is being sold for the purpose of industrial/commercial development.
The deadline for bids is March 1st. A $1,000 deposit must accompany all bids. Bids will be reviewed during the regular city council meeting on Monday, March 5th, at 7:30pm.
