The Sumner City Council could take long-awaited action on the proposed sale of a city-owned golf course Monday night.
An agreement to sell Sumner Meadows Golf Links to a short-listed buyer has been under review by city staff since July. The city started marketing the land for sale last year.
Approval of a purchase-and-sale agreement is on the agenda for Monday’s 7 p.m. regular council meeting at City Hall, 1104 Maple St. No details were included in the council packet.
The potential buyer, Iowa-based global investment group Principal Financial, reportedly plans to build an industrial park on the 154-acre course.
The city still owes about $5.8 million on the property. City Administrator John Galle has said a sale eventually could lower residents’ utility rates and improve the city’s financial health.
Sumner Meadows was built 17 years ago. Of the original 292 acres purchased in 1993, 138 will be retained for various uses by the city, Galle said. That land is zoned for agriculture and will remain open space, he said.
