Ottawa Trying To Lure New Business

Posted by wlpo on November 18, 2010

A piece of land costing the city of Ottawa one dollar right now could turn into hundreds of jobs.

The Ottawa City Council has purchased an option to explore buying land on Marquette Street on the west side of town that used to be the site of Burns Machine Company.  Mayor Bob Eschbach says a construction product maker that could bring several jobs is eyeing the land.

The city has a chance to buy the land for 425 thousand dollars over the next six months.  If they decide to buy it after that time, the price goes up to 450 thousand dollars.
