Report of Geo 1) Walker, supurintendent of

Beit resolved by the board of county com-
missioners In regular session that:
WHEKEXS, the old rotirt house and the
old jail building, both situate on Block 43 In
the City of Pond Creek, are not needed for
court house nor jail purposes, and are of no
benefit to the county and are becoming less
valuable by reason of deterioration and fron
effects of the weather, and whereas said
buildings have been heretofore leased to the
city of Pond Creek for s T100I purposes for »
term of 30 years, and whereas the city of
Pond Creek has voted bonds and is preparing
to construct a new school house and this
block is the most logical point at which to
piace said new building, and the county
would not bo materially Injured by selling
said buildings and would be benefitted to the
extent of the sum of money said buildings
would bring, and the county needs the mon-
ey that said buildings would bring to till the
yard of the present court house, and for salt!
reasons Is II to the b'st Interest of the coun- | SOU'heril Minnesota,
ty to sell said buildings to be removed from
said block within thirty days after sold.
IT 14 THEREFORE ORDERED, by tin
board, that said buildings bo sold separately
to the highest bidder for cash, on the prem-
ises In Pond Creek on Saturday, February It),
1912, at 1 o’clock p. m. Said sale to be at pua
lie outcry, and the county clerk is to give 30
days notlco of such sale by publication In
tie three official papers of the county prior
to the date set for such sale.
Done at Medford this 4th day of Jajnnary,
