Seven commercial properties owned by the State of Idaho through the Idaho Land Board were disposed of at auction last week.  

The Idaho Statesman reports two of the Downtown Boise properties went to a group involving the Simplot family, while two more went to a California charity. 

 The Garro building on Jefferson street was one of the properties sold. Phot via TOK flyer.
