Humboldt Council OKs sale of land

HUMBOLDT — The Humboldt City Council on Monday approved the sale of a piece of land north of Hy-Vee.

The property, which encompasses 7/10s of an acre, was sold to Jeff and Karen Berte, of Humboldt, for $4,500.

It’s located near Jerry Hatcher Road, just south of Three Rivers Trail, according to Travis Goedken, city administrator.

Goedken said he wasn’t sure how the city acquired the land initially.

He said Jeff Berte didn’t indicate his plans for the property.
