Chairman opened a public hearing at 10:00 a.m. to receive comments on the disposal of the Lanesboro Shed. In addition to the supervisors and auditor, those present for the public hearing were County Engineer Dave Paulson, Virginia Hagemann and Harold Leiting. Chairman received a call from Bill Mohr, who expressed an interest in purchasing the building. McDermott received a call from an unidentified person, requesting information about the building. Paulson reported that an adjacent landowner would not be opposed if the supervisors decide to give the building to the City of Lanesboro, but if the supervisors decided instead to put the building up for sale, he would be interested. Nieland confirmed he was given that same information. Hagemann asked what would be in the best interest of the county taxpayers, to give it to Lanesboro for $1 or to sell it for $10,000. Supervisors replied that it would not bring any significant amount of money as it needs a new roof. The cost of advertising could be more than the purchase price of the building. Meiners responded that this would be a way to help one of the smaller communities, as Lanesboro uses the shed to house their snowplow. Beardmore agreed that it was a good way to help the community of Lanesboro. Chairman closed the public hearing at 10:10 a.m. Motion by McDermott, second by Nieland to give the county building (Lanesboro Shed) to the City of Lanesboro for the sum of $1.00. On roll call, all present voted aye. Paulson will ask County Attorney to draw up a quit claim deed.
