Staff recommends accepting the Warranty Deed from the School Board of Lake County for the 11 acre site to be used as the future site of the City gymnasium.
On September 12, 2005, the City Commission approved the contract to purchase property adjacent to the railroad right-of-way at Griffin Road near the Carver Middle School from the School Board of Lake County. This 11 acre tract is the future site of the city wide gymnasium. Closing has been completed and the deed has been recorded. Acceptance of this Warranty Deed, as required by our Charter, will conclude this transaction.
1. Approve acceptance of the Warranty Deed; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to this action.
