The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will offer eight parcels of state land for sale to the public at sealed bid auction and public oral auction Aug. 24 - 25.
Two 40-acre parcels located near the city of Wilton will be sold by sealed bid auction. These properties may be sold at less than appraised value. Bids must be submitted on a form obtained from the DNR. All bids must be received by the DNR on Aug. 20 before 4:30 p.m.
The bid opening will take place on Aug. 25.
The properties to be offered at oral auction include the DNR's former forestry office in Hovland, a platted lot near Fall Lake in the Ely area, and rural sites in Hubbard and Itasca counties. The oral auctions will take place Aug. 24 - 25.
Prospective bidders are urged to obtain full information on properties and sale conditions prior to an auction. No properties offered at oral auction will be sold for less than the minimum bid identified for each property. The minimum bid consists of the appraised value of the land and any improvements, the timber value and sale costs.
All properties are sold "as is."
Property data sheets, available from the DNR for all parcels, list exact property locations, minimum bids, date and location of the auction for that property, site description and property condition.
