Cadott Village Board; Industrial land for sale, with benefits

WELCOME ABOARD –– At the March 6 regular board meeting, Merlin Huhn was appointed to the Cadott Village Board as the new trustee. After board member Charles Sedivy resigned from his position last month, Merlin was one of two who applied for the position. Village president Anson Albarado said the fair way to choose was to flip a coin, and Huhn was the lucky winner. Huhn was born and raised in Cadott, and after retirement this December, he said he’s ready to help the village grow. (Photo by Kayla Peche)

With 6 acres available for sale in a “prime development area” near State Highways 27 and 29, the Cadott Village Board discussed an industrial land sale policy to build a framework to increase interest in buyers.

“We want to find that balance between fair,” said Patrick Beilfuss, village engineer from Cedar Corp, at the March 6 regular board meeting, “and at the same time, that the village is getting what it needs out of the land it owns.”

Beilfuss described four options for the village, with fluctuating numbers for the purchase price of the land, job credit and assessed value credit. Assessed value was the constant number, but the purchase price changed with the chosen example numbers, giving the board an idea of what a new business owner would pay.
