Resolution 2024-7 Authorizing the Use of Alternate Leasing Procedure


 The County owns 4.77 acres at the corner of Nucor Road and US 136 that was previously harvested for hay. The County intends to lease the property for the harvesting of the crop. The Resolution finds that the traditional procedure for leasing real estate under Indiana Code 36-1-11-10 is not feasible based on the need to get the real estate under lease in a short period of time in order to allow crops to be planted and harvested and authorizes an alternative procedure which requires the County to solicit a request for proposals.
