A Study of Leasing Practices of Public School Lands in Colorado. Final Report.
Cole, Stanley Mason
Policies pertaining to three basic problems in land leasing practices are examined--(1) to compare income from leases on state school lands with income from leases of similar privately owned land, (2) to identify policies regarding the disposition of conflicting bids on state school land, and (3) to identify policies regarding subleasing school lands and its impact on school funds. It was found that on dry and grazing land, cash rentals on school lands compare favorably with the rentals on private land. The greatest differences in rental rates appear in the area of irrigated farming, where the private land rental rate was considerably higher than the public school land rate. On the basis of information obtained in this study, the State Board of Land Commissioners has been exercising prudent judgement when resolving the conflict bid. The policies concerning subleasing practices have been defined and delineated much more clearly since 1965, although the current subleasing is difficult to control. (NI)
