AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

Meeting Date:           December 17, 2007

 

From:                          Raymond S. Sharp, Director, Environmental Services/Public Works

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Partial Release of Lease Agreement for Public Works site, correcting the legal description

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

Staff recommends approval of a partial release of lease agreement for the Public Works site.

 

Analysis:

In November, 2003, the City Commission authorized a lease agreement for the Public Works site (former Florida Department of Transportation site).  The State prepared the legal description for the leased area.  The State inadvertently included within the legal description a portion of US 27 right of way and a small portion of the RR right of way abutting the property.

 

This Partial Release of Lease Agreement corrects the legal description of the lease agreement, essentially by removing the referenced rights of way from the lease agreement.  A sketch is attached to illustrate the portions being removed.  The remaining area which is the present Public Works facility remains under lease.  This change has no effect upon the City’s use of the Public Works facility for our intended purpose.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Partial Release of Lease Agreement as presented, or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

This action has no fiscal impact, either present or future.  It is simply a correction of a legal description of the leased site.
