AgState seeks to buy city land for scale project

Royal council agrees to start process of completing sale

The Royal City Council indicated willingness to sell a parcel located near the AgState elevator and agreed to take the required legal steps to complete the transaction.

During the council meeting on April 17, North Region Leader Jason Huff said that AgState intends to construct a scale at the north end of their grain storage complex. They need to acquire a small parcel of city-owned land if the scale is located there.

“We’re not set on where we have to have it today,” Huff explained. “If that property is not for sale, then we go to Plan B, which I don’t know what that is.”
