City to look at land sale policy
Although no decisions have been made, the city is discussing the process of selling city-owned land.
"In some cases, it's not really fair because people don't have a chance to bid," Alderman Leonard Heltemes said. Heltemes brought the issue to light after a small piece of property was sold last month to a man who requested it.
The sale of property does come before the Detroit Lakes City Council for approval before a sale.
