Too often, said Interim City Administrator Joel Walinski, when property owners know government entities are looking at their land, prices soar. By asking land owners to submit proposals to the city, Walinski said, it’s hoped that prices will be more favorable to the city… Walinski said it will take a few weeks for the staff to complete a request for proposals, but expects the notice to be advertised by month’s end. Land owners whose property was ranked favorably by the consultant will be contacted and ask to submit a proposal to the council.
This seems like a smart move to me. Anyone know what Arnie Nelson’s objections were?
