Yk councillor curious about Kam Lake land sales
Yellowknife, N.W.T. - The city of Yellowknife is planning to sell seven plots of land in Kam Lake, a seemingly easy thing to do, but one city councillor didn't let it go without some concern.
Councillor Cory Vanthuyne was curious about just who was planning to buy some of the lots, five to be exact, and where the applications were coming from.
The city's planning and lands manager, Jeff Humble, said they haven't received any applications and because the land has been deemed sub-standard, they can be sold a different way.
"They can only be sold to adjoining properties, so that's essentially how we've initiated this process. Some of those have been initiated based on inquiries we received today."
However, Vanthuyne said there are applications, according to the city's own information, and he pressed the issue with Humble.
"The city has received land applications for five of these seven substandard parcels and an expression of interest in one of the substandard parcels. I'm wondering who has submitted the five applications."
Eventually, Humble said he would e-mail the information he had to Vanthuyne.
