DULUTH - The City of Duluth may change the process of how they go about selling city property.
The Duluth City Council wants any property that the city tries to sell to be presented to the council before it is put up for sale.
Currently, transactions have to be presented to the council, but only after they sold it, which has caused some trouble in the past.
“Someone may have went through the process of showing up to that auction, now purchased this property, which they think is going to be theirs, but then the council decides, actually, we never wanted this to be sold in the first place, so this is a way to stop that from happening, and frankly just being a little more smooth,” council member Dan Hartman, of the Duluth City Council, said.
Hartman said it makes the process more clear and gives the council the ability to provide the public with more information regarding the city land for sale.
