(MITCHELL) - The Mitchell City Council, in a special meeting Monday night, signed a lease agreement with Bedford farmer Dean Stewart to lease land at the city's Industrial Park.

The council earlier in the month passed a resolution to lease approximately 86 acres in the city's Industrial Park.

Stewart will rent the property for $80 an acre and plans to plant soybeans.

The city recently covered a six-inch gas line that was exposed, but the property has several deep ditches due to erosion problems. Stewart will now be responsible for correcting those erosion problems.

Mayor Gary Pruitt says by leasing the property the city will generate income and farming the land will improve the soil conditions.
