MINOT, N.D. — A house the city of Minot has owned for a just over two years will be going back on the market.

The Daily News reports that city council members have decided to auction the house the city wanted to create as a gateway to a river greenway and museum visitor’s center.

The city learned after acquiring the property that there wasn’t any money for greenway improvements.

The city paid $245,000 for property that included the house. The proposal is to auction the house and move it, leaving the land in city ownership.

City council member Shannon Straight says it’s time for the city to cut its losses and move on. He says he wishes there was a better solution.
