Consistency in Eastwood Sale?

0

The question is consistency.

Is the city being fair to all if they say “no” to some and “yes” to others?

That was the objection from property owners on Eastwood Drive in Thief River Falls this week, who say they were dismayed to hear closed door negotiations have resulted in the sale of a unique piece of city property significantly under list.

Eastwood Lot #5 owners Duane and Wendy Horras say that was not the case when they negotiated the sale on their property three years ago.

Duane Horras told Thief River Falls Radio the city said they would not accept a penny under list for the beautifully wooded lots, adjacent to Greenwood Trails; that “everyone would have to pay full price, past – present and future.”

Horras says he was not happy to find – after negotiating in good faith and paying full price – the neighboring property negotiated away significantly under list, just three years later and says, if he had known the wetland sensitive Lot #6 was “on sale,” would have offered to buy it.

The lot sale has been under the microscope since last week’s City Council meeting, with the Thief River Falls Radio News Room offering an official protest over the unannounced, closed session.
