Item No: 5E.
Meeting Date: February 27, 2012
From: Darel W. Craine, Deputy Director of Public Works
Subject: Ordinance accepting a Warranty Deed given by Leesburg Christian Center Inc. to the City of Leesburg at the intersection of Thomas Avenue and Westside Drive
Staff recommends acceptance of ownership of the stormwater pond located in Section 21, Township 19 South, Range 24 East, Lake County Florida
The City recently installed new storm water pipes and sidewalks on the west side of Thomas Ave. The stormwater runoff collects in the pond referenced above. While working on this project, staff met with the Church staff and they agreed to transfer ownership of the property to the City at no cost. This gives the Stormwater Division complete control of the Thomas Avenue system. This also gives the division a place to stage equipment when working in the area.
1. Adopt the Ordinance accepting ownership of the stormwater pond as presented; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Maintenance costs will be absorbed by the Stormwater operations budget.
