Commissioners approve sale of lots in Petersburg

Sale of six county-owned lots in Petersburg was approved by Boone County Commissioners Monday, April 29.
Commissioners received only one sealed bid for the lots from the Petersburg Industrial Development Corp. (PIDC) at $15,366, or $2,561 per lot. Bids were due by Monday, April 29.
County valuation for the six adjoining lots in west Petersburg was $12,980. Each lot measures 25 x 140 feet, so the total land area is 150 x 140 feet.
Commissioners Alan Rasmussen and Ben Rutten voted to approve the sale, and Commissioner Larry Temme abstained.
The lots are zoned residential, and PIDC plans to develop the area for housing.
