Henning EDA discusses lots for sale in city limits

By Chad Koenen


Meeting for the first time since September, the Henning EDA spent most of its time last week discussing the city-owned Countryview Apartments.

During its regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday morning, the Henning EDA discussed an updated rental agreement for the city-owned apartments and opted against increasing the monthly rent charged at the facility. Currently a one bedroom apartment is $565 per month and a two bedroom apartment is $675 per month.
