No Sale on City Owned Land

The Yankton City Commission had planned to sell several acres of surplus land for affordable housing development, but could not find numbers that worked. City Planner Dave Mingo said they had only one bid for the land just south of the north side fire station…

The bid was well below the expected value of the land. Commissioner Charlie Gross said the bidding process was flawed…

The commission then went through a series of motions with a tie vote to reject the bid, then a three to five vote to accept the bid, and a motion to set a base price and rebid dying for lack of a second. Commissioner David Knoff (ka-noff) then moved to table the issue…

Mingo told the commission that eighteen to twenty one homes could possibly be built on the vacant land.
