Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Department of Lands has auctioned off 32 more lots at Payette Lake in northern Idaho as it continues its plan to divest itself of the lucrative but difficult-to-manage assets. The agency says the auction Saturday in Boise generated $13.5 million for education and State Hospital South, a psychiatric inpatient treatment facility for adults and adolescents. The agency says 29 incumbent lease holders submitted winning bids. Only one lot had competitive bidding and that sold for $8,000 above the appraised value. Three unleased lots were auctioned for about $2.1 million, about $73,000 above the appraised value; three other unleased, vacant lots didn’t attract any bids. The state has now sold 127 cottage site lots at Priest Lake and Payette Lake, about a fourth of the lots to be sold.
