SE City Council wants to study gas station property

SLEEPY EYE — The Sleepy Eye City Council decided at a special meeting Thursday to ask Brown County for six months to study property at the corner of Third Avenue East and Main Street that formerly housed a service station.

City Manager Mark Kober said the City of Sleepy Eye has the legal right to ask for six months to study the property closer before acting on a Sleepy Eye Chamber of Commerce proposal for the city to request property conveyance from the county.

The city council approved a resolution accepting a Minnesota Department of Transportation grant for a new airport mower, canvassed local election results with no changes and approved St. Mary’s liquor permits for Nov. 17 and Jan. 26, 2019.
