A North Huntingdon Township 5-acre parcel has been sold for double its beginning price.

Commissioners last week approved the sale of the 5-acre parcel adjacent to the Youghiogheny River, known as Turner Valley, for $20,100 to Brandon and Heather Kucich. The township will retain all gas and oil rights, according to bid specifications.

Bids for the property were to start at $10,000. The Kucich bid was approved during a regular council meeting.

The property is one of two parcels on the same deed. It is triangle-shaped, said Michael Turley, assistant township manager.

Because North Huntingdon is retaining oil and gas rights, if drilling would occur on the property, the township would collect royalties.
