Supervisors take more action on agri-business park and discuss drainage

The Wright County Board of Supervisors convened on Monday morning. Most of the agenda dealt with action for the agri-business park and for joint drainage districts.

The board reviewed the bids for soil borings at the Wright County Agri-Business Park for geotechnical exploration of the project. ISG requires soil sampling before they can proceed with their work. Wright County Economic Development Director Cindy Litwiller presented the three bids that were received. Chosen Valley Testing out of Mason City was the lowest bid at $2,150. The board approved that bid. The sampling will proceed as soon the weather allows.

The supervisors also reviewed the bids for cash rent for the south 40 acres of the Agri-Business Park. Litwiller explained that the number of acres may be adjusted due to possible changes in a retention pond location, according to ISG Engineers. The board voted to accept the high bid by Josh and Jacob Christensen of $236 per acre pending the engineers report and if the Christensens still want to rent if the acres are adjusted.
