Commission Board to re-advertise farm lease

RITZVILLE – The Adams County Commission expected to open bids for the lease of 34 acres adjacent to the County Fairgrounds in Othello during its Nov. 15 meeting.
But no bids were received.
The property was granted to the county, and under the terms, cannot be sold. It is occasionally used for overflow parking during the fair, officials said.
It is in the interest of the county to have a tenant use the land during the growing season to control weeds, officials said.
With no bids, the board decided to re-advertise the lease. The current lease on the parcel expires Nov. 30.
