No bids on Lodgepole football field


CHAPPELL - No bids were received for the now defunct Creek Valley Middle School’s football field in Lodgepole.

“They’re going to reopen bids for the football field because nobody in the original bid process, which was due the 6th of June, nobody put any bids in,” Ron Howard, CVS superintendent, said.

Possibly there were no bids because the price for the property was too high, Howard said.

The property was listed for roughly $11,000 for 10 acres.

“The county assessor told us what to put on there for a minimum bid, and I think that was way too high,” he said. “I think people want to buy it for a couple of thousand.”

Location may also be a factor.

“It’s in Lodgepole,” Howard said. “If it was in another place, you can put some apartments on it or do something with it commercially, but not so much there.”
