March 20, 2018 02:51 PM BOISE, Idaho Idaho officials are extending the contract of a financial adviser assisting with reinvesting millions from the sale of commercial and residential real estate. The Idaho Land Board retained Callan LLC through June 2019 for $150,000 annually. "They've got a lot of institutional knowledge on what we're doing and so to change contractors now I think would be a mistake," said Idaho GovC.L"Butch" Otter. Callan was retained in 2014 when the board began considering selling the state's residential real estate and politically contentious commercial real estate with an expected one-time windfall of $160 million. jQuery(document).ready(function () { mi.renderNewsletterIframe.init({ container: '#newsletter-signUpWidget', url: ',,' }); }); Never miss a local story.

In 2017, state officials asked Callan to analyze asset allocation for eight of the endowment beneficiaries, focusing on the seven smallestThat agreement ends this month, but Callan needs additional time to complete the study. "We're in the midst of a study that we put a lot of money into," said Attorney General Lawrence Wasden"We're far better off at this point having some outside objective professional advice." Idaho has been selling hundreds of residential home sites as it gets out of the business of leasing that landThe move began amid concerns the state wasn't getting fair-market value for the leases. The Land Board has sold most of the commercial real estate it managed after complaints that state-owned businesses unfairly compete with private businessesThe sales met the Land Board's constitutional mandate to manage state land for the maximum financial return. Idaho is expected to wind up with about $160 million when sales are finished in 2020Callan is recommending the money be spent to buy timberland and farmland. Idaho received 3.65 million acres of endowment land at statehood in 1890Over the years, it has sold about 33 percent.
