9/16/2013 1:32:00 PM White explains county's position on Towlerton lot
Cottonwood County Commissioner Tom White clarified the county's position regarding the Towlerton Motors property at Monday's Windom Economic Development Authority meeting.
White told the board that the county is only interested in the Towlerton Motors building and parking area, not the land surrounding it. White said that he would favor selling the remaining 3.1 acres to private business for development.
White also told the EDA board that the commissioners have received word that the private buyer who is interested in purchasing the property has now stated that an additional 30 days is needed to complete the deal. White said commissioners will likely discuss extending the deal deadline another 30 days the next county commissioners meeting (slated for Sept. 24 at 1 p.m.).
