Hoiseth calls talks earlier this week ‘very interesting’

    When officials sit down to discuss the potential purchase, sale or pricing of a piece of property, statute allows the meetings to be closed to the public and media because officials want to keep their strategies close to the vest.

    Earlier this week, Crookston City Council members and CHEDA Board members conducted a closed session to discuss the possible purchase of the Downtown Square property, potentially selling a portion of the “Colborn property” on the south edge of town, and the future of the parcel between Centrol and B & E Meats in the industrial park.

    Afterward, CHEDA Executive Director Craig Hoiseth said he’s extremely limited in what he can say on possible movement soon on any of the trio of properties. Progress was made, he said.

    “A very interesting discussion, for sure,” Hoiseth added.
