City to sell forest land?

By Jayson Jacoby, The Baker City Herald

A plan to sell a piece of city-owned property at the base of the Elkhorn Mountains will probably end up on the November ballot.

The city wants to unload its 40-acre Salmon Creek property - about eight miles west of Baker City and originally purchased in the late 19th century - but must secure voter approval first, as mandated by the city charter.

"We've never done anything with it," City Manager Mike Kee said of the parcel of timbered property.

The city had trees thinned on the property in 2003.

Kee said the property could be worth as much as $100,000.
