Board OK's land purchase
Red Wing School Board voted 7-0 to approve the purchase of about 40 acres of land near Red Wing High School's athletic field for $150,000. The board discussed the purchase of the land from Riverbank in the Highlands subdivision in a closed meeting May 6.
Director of Finance Brad Johnson said the district originally sold the land in 2006 for $248,000. A housing subdivision that was planned for the area was never built.
