Staff Recommendation: Staff recommends approval of the ordinance accepting the Warranty Deeds from the Owners of property within Summer Wind on Lake Harris.
At the July 23, 2007 City Commission meeting, the Commission approved a Contract for purchase of property from the individual property owners of the Summer Wind on Lake Harris Condominiums. The City purchased this property to construct a Reverse Frontage Road that will extend the travel corridor between Ruby Tuesday on the west, and Midas Muffler on the east. The purchase price was $ 32,670.00 plus closing costs. Closing has been completed and the deed has been recorded. Acceptance of these Warranty Deeds, as required by our Charter, will conclude this transaction.
1. Adopt the ordinance accepting the warranty deeds, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
