Developers test waters for buying county land
HUDSON -- First a willing seller and no buyer. Then a potential buyer and no willing seller.
Two years ago, despite extensive advertising, St. Croix County got no bids on an 18-acre parcel cut off from other "county farm" property by Hwy. 64 construction. This month a real estate agent and an attorney met with the St. Croix's Finance Committee to ask if the county wants to sell the land in the city of New Richmond.
