This ad encourages people to purchase The Heidel House for $14.5 million.

   Heidel House has a “very solid and qualified buyer.”

   Since March, that party has contacted Green Lake Mayor Jon McConnell “at least weekly and sometimes almost daily.”

   The prospective buyer, who is “very knowledgeable in the resort business,” shares a vision with McConnell: retaining the Heidel House as a resort.

   The mayor has been in touch with the city’s financial advisor to identify how Green Lake might encourage the deal using tax incremental financing options.

   So the deal seems to be a go, but for one hitch.

   The buyer, whom McConnell has declined to identify, is interested only in the resort portion of the property.

   He “is not interested in the entire property,” McConnell told the Green Lake Common Council at its Committee of the Whole meeting Monday evening.
