House passes process for optional online county-owned land sales

Folks wanting to acquire public land may be able to do it in a more modern way.

Sponsored by Rep. Julie Sandstede (DFL-Hibbing) and Sen. David Tomassoni (I-Chisholm), a new law requires counties, in addition to traditional newspaper notices, to advertise the sale, lease, or conveyance of county-owned property on the county’s website. The county may choose to solicit and accept bids via an online auction process.

It takes effect Aug. 1, 2022.

The law also adds “proposals” to state law that permits leases not exceeding $15,000 a year to be negotiated nor be subject to a competitive bidding process.
