County Sells Land on Gunflint- More Being Considered

County commissioner, Jim Johnson, announced today the results of the county sale of land for the Whispering Pines sub-division located near Trail Center on the Hungry Jack Road. According to Johnson, "the Auction for Whispering Pines was held Monday. Three of the lots sold for more than the minimum bid, and the remaining four sold for the minimum bid price. The total dollar figure received by the county for these lots was $359,800. After all expenses are paid the county will net about $110,000 which will go into the general fund."

Johnson also when on to state that the land survey on the county owned Top of the Trail "property has been completed." But according to Johnson the County Board has "not acted upon a recommendation to put the property up for sale, but that should be coming soon. Because this property was acquired in a land trade with the Federal Government the proceeds will go in part to the school, part to park and recreation funds, and part to the general fund."
