In August, the Carroll County Board of Supervisors received notice from Chad Kanne, who rented the county farm, that he was not interested in renewing his current lease at $36,000.01 for the 111.6 acres that includes 98.1 tillable. At that time, Neil Bock told the other supervisors this was not unexpected with the current commodity prices.
The supervisors agreed to put the property back out for bids with a deadline of Wednesday, Nov. 1. At Monday’s meeting, Chair, Gene Meiners, opened the three bids received on the property.
Kanne was again the highest bidder at $30,100, and has been awarded the lease. The contract will be drawn up by Carroll County Attorney, John Werden.
