At last Tuesday’s Kuna City Council meeting, board members voted 2 to 1 to sell a 107 acre parcel of city-owned land north of Lake Hazel and east of Ten Mile Road. The minimum price was set at $3,213,900. After a public hearing on October 10, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. the parcel will be auctioned off to the public.
