Bidding war, debate kick off first April supervisors meeting
It was a standing-room-only crowd for the first Jasper County Board of Supervisors meeting of April, and the majority of those citizens came for the public hearing and opening of the sealed bids for Rader Timber Area, Amboy Ridge Wildlife Area and Hamil Wildlife Area.
As the bids were read, there was confusion among the bidders due to the fact that there never was a specification on whether the bids were per-acre or flat-price. This led to multiple recalculations during the meeting by Jasper County Conservation Director Keri Van Zante.
Citizen Todd Van Manen commented, “Every land auction I have ever been to has been by the acre.”
