Staff recommends acceptance of the bid offered by Shirley E. Howard of $6,500.00 for property at 9 Lucerne Circle.
At the July 26, 2010 City Commission meeting, the Commission directed staff to contact the owners of every property adjacent to the city-owned property noted above and solicit sealed offers (“bids”) for the purchase of this property. Staff’s research determined there were four properties adjacent to the lot in question, and the owners of each of these properties were sent a certified notice (return receipt requested) soliciting a bid.
By the deadline stipulated in the notice mailed to each of the four adjacent property owners, one bid was received from Shirley E. Howard for $6,500.00. Ms. Howard’s bid exceeds the $4,720.00 just value which is listed in the property details published by the Lake County Property Appraiser.
