Cass County Correspondent

WALKER -- Cass County has sold 327.48 acres on 37 land parcels valued at $515,785 so far this year.

That includes 13 parcels sold over the counter at the land department office in Backus and another 24 parcels sold at a July 11 annual auction.

Half of that goes back into a land department tax-forfeited property account and half will be distributed to cities and townships where the sold land is located ($51,578.50), school districts ($103,157) and the county general fund ($103,157).

The land department also sold logging rights on county-administered land at a July 25 auction, with 7,626 cords sold on six parcels for $279,167.

Average price loggers paid for 4,560 cords of aspen was $39.84 per cord. Average price paid for 1,304 cords of red oak was $43.07. Smaller amounts of birch, maple, ash, balsam fir, basswood and bur oak also were sold.

Tuesday, Aug. 6, the county board approved a contract with low bidder Hengel Construction for $350 to remove debris from a tax-forfeited property in Sylvan Township and a contract with low bidder Schrupp Excavating for $500 to remove debris from a tax-forfeited property in Deerfield Township.

The board also awarded a $150 contract to the lowest of three bidders, Schrupp Excavating, to replace seven boulders to block a carry-in access to Sand Lake.

GCS Construction Services won a $700 contract to deliver 60 yards of taconite tailings to a Torrey Township forest access road. A logger working in that area will be required to spread.
