Sartell logo

SARTELL — The Sartell City Council approved the purchase of two pieces of land that will soon become a new park.

The city agreed to buy the land for nearly $950,000 from the G & M Dehler Trust and the Wollak Development.

The 47 acres will be turned into the Sauk River Park and Nature Area.

The funding will be covered by a $500,000 allocation from the 2008 state bonding bill along with $500,000 and a %10 local match from a Legacy Amendment grant.

Mayor Joe Perske says they will be leaving a lasting legacy with the park.
