|Bidding Options Remain for City Land Sales
|The city of Galesburg will continue to offer two options when selling parcels of land.
Members of the city council voted last night to sell 51 parcels of land and keep the two options the city established last year: one, require a development plan with a bid, or two, require a $500 minimum bid.
Fifth ward Alderman Karen Lafferty, however, said she would like to always see development plans.
"I'd like to see a development plan, especially for any commercial lots that are being sold."
After hearing the thoughts of all members on the issue, Mayor Sal Garza indicated the city would continue to offer both options.
"So in summery it seems that we want to continue with the two option and with the address 240 Henderson, that that only be extended one option and that is development plan."
The exception at 240 North Henderson is a commercial property, which is why the city opted to only allow bid with development plans.
