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.
