Media Release from Cook County - October 4, 2018

The land exchange between Cook County and the United States Forest Service is not yet complete. The Cook County lands involved in this exchange are held in trust by the State of Minnesota. Due to a last-minute issue with the State of Minnesota’s deed of conveyance, the exchange is on hold until this issue is resolved.

“All parties involved are working together to complete the exchange as soon as possible,” said County Attorney Molly Hicken.
