The Mitchell City Council met briefly Monday morning to clear up a land issue.

A tract of land at what's now known as West 20th Avenue and Pheasant Street near the Quail View Senior Living complex was set to be deeded to CJM Consulting in the past, but never was. At Monday's special meeting at City Hall, the council unanimously approved the transfer of a small, triangular piece of land.

"It's something that was anticipated at that time, it just never did," City Attorney Justin Johnson said about the land transfer talks from 2013, which occurred before he was appointed as city attorney.

On behalf of CJM, Chuck Mauszycki Sr. attended the meeting to speak about the land, called Tract A-2, which has already been developed.

"I've been paying taxes on A-2, so I thought in fact I owned it a couple years ago," Mauszycki said.
