Monday, August 14, 2017 | DrydenWire
SPOONER, Wis. -- A Meeting of the Spooner City Council was held at 6 PM, on August 14, 2017, where a decision was announced regarding the proposals received by the City of Spooner to purchase the vacant building at 302 Walnut St., and 507 N. Summit St., in Spooner, WI.
The Spooner City Council went into closed session at 6:08 PM to review the proposals and after approximately 2 hours returned to open session.
The Council took action on the proposals and announced that the proposal from the group Hockey Consulting Group Arena Management, LLC, (the group that purchased the Spooner Civic Center), was granted purchase for the vacant building for $50,000.
At a previous meeting of the Spooner City Council on August 1, 2017, it was announced that the process of accepting bids and proposals regarding vacant building was being re-opened. All bids and proposals were to be submitted to the Council by close of business on August 11, 2017.
DrydenWire.com spoke with Spooner City Administrator William Marx at that time, who stated that the assessed value of 302 Walnut St. was $48,200 and the amount that the city paid for 507 N. Summit St. was $40,000, for a total value of both properties of $88,200. These numbers were announced after a council member requested to know the value of the 2 properties, however, Marx clarified, that $88,200 was not the minimum required bid.
The topic on the future of the vacant building has been a hot one in the community ever since a bid for the property was submitted by the Churchills, owners of Dock Coffee on Walnut St., in Spooner, WI, for their desire to turn it into a Brewhouse. The Churchills later decided to take their vision elsewhere and have now announced that they will be occupying a portion of the building which currently houses Dahl's Home Store.
It was also announced that the closing on the properties will take place on September 30, 2017.
