Extra saleyards land sought

- BY ROBERT MUIR

Federation Council is set to negotiate acquisitio­n of land required for the ongoing operationa­l needs of the Corowa Saleyards, in particular management of treated effluent generated from saleyard operations.

The subject was on council’s agenda at yesterday’s monthly but at the time of The Free Press going to print, council was to confidenti­ally discuss the opportunit­y to purchase two lots with a total land area of 10ha.

Treated effluent from the saleyards is provided to a neighbouri­ng property owner to enable irrigation for the growing of crops.

“The property owner has approached council with an intention to sell to council,” council’s director developmen­t and environmen­tal services Susan Appleyard stated in her report.

“The land being offered to council for sale is located at 91 and 107 Almond Lane.”

A story will appear in next week’s edition of The Free Press.
