Oneida County Counters Newbold's Offer for County Land


  The Town of Newbold’s initial offer on a piece of county land was countered by the Oneida County Board of Supervisors this week. The Town of Newbold made an offer of $8,000 on a parcel of county land in hopes to expand their 9-hole disc golf course to an 18-hole course with a hiking trail. However, Oneida County is offering $15,000 for the lot. The Town of Newbold Chairperson Dave Kroll says the town board is setting a time for the electors meeting to discuss the purchase.

 “…the decision whether or not to purchase land is not a decision for the town board, rather a decision for the citizens to make.”

Kroll says if the electors agree with the county’s offer and the purchase goes through, construction won’t begin until next year.
