The RM of Portage la Prairie's unloaded some surplus land recently.
"Quite some time ago, council identified some surplus land to the Municipality that we've taken on in various different ways, in some cases, it's a tax sale," says Reeve Kam Blight. "There's one piece to the northeast of Service on Second. It was put up for sale and was sold to a couple of individuals from the Oakville area."
Blight says the funds from the sale will go into the Land Development Reserve and can be used to develop or improve RM owned land. He adds there's still some land for sale in the Poplar Point area.
