The Hubbard County board unanimously approved the sale of 1,000 acres of privately owned lake and forestland to the Department of Natural Resources Wednesday with the caveat that the governmental taxing units affected be made whole after the sale.


The sale takes a significant portion of land off the county's tax rolls.
