To The Daily Sun,
Why is the state of New Hampshire in the house rental business in Laconia?
Back in October 1999, the state bought the home at 14 Main St.. Several months later, in June 2000, the state the bought the home next door at 24 Main St.
The intent in purchasing these homes, as I understand it, was that these homes were in the path of a proposed new off-ramp from Route 106.
That plan was never developed and the state still owns the homes. The state pays the City of Laconia taxes on these homes and the taxes are up-to-date, according to the tax collector.
The state now rents them and has for many years. Both are occupied.
I am curious why the state doesn't sell these home as there are no known plans to ever build a new off-ramp from Route 106 to the intersection of Route 107.
