At the Monona Council’s Dec. 5 meeting, city administrator Dan Canton informed the council that the Overland Group has accepted the city’s counter-offer to purchase a small parcel of land in the Monona Commercial Park for $20,000.

The land, located along Highway 18, west of Fisk Farm and Home and the Davis Street Car Wash, is next to a larger property, which is not owned by the city, that the Overland Group is interested in for construction of a Dollar General store.

The deal is not final, however, said Canton, until the Overland Group does its due diligence in checking out the property and making sure it will meet its needs. The Overland Group could still back out of the deal, he said, as they did over a year ago, when they were looking at another location in that area.

January meetings changed

The council’s January meetings have each been pushed back a week to accommodate the New Year’s holiday. They will now be held Monday, Jan. 9 and Monday, Jan. 23.
