Sedgwick County plans to lease Boys Ranch property

Sedgwick County plans to lease Boys Ranch property

By George Lawson. CREATED Aug 8, 2014

Sedgwick County will be looking for individuals, businesses or agencies that would be interested in leasing the former Judge Riddel Boys Ranch.  The county's purchasing department has sent out a request for bids for the ranch property near Goddard.

A press release from the county stated that the bids will be opened on September 3rd, but it's unknown when county commissioners would make a decision on a winning bid.  

The Boys Ranch was closed this summer after the Kansas Legislature failed to approve funding to continue its programs for troubled youth.
