Subject:                       Resolution Approving an Agreement for Temporary Drainage and Retention Easement with Neil Fischer

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends adopting the resolution approving an agreement for temporary drainage and retention easement with Neil Fischer.

Analysis:

On January 22, 2007, the City Commission approved the purchase of approximately 7,562.2 square feet from Neil Fischer as part of a plan to extend the travel corridor between Ruby Tuesday on the west, and Midas Muffler on the east.  Mr. Fischer has agreed to sell a portion of the property directly behind his two commercial buildings, near the eastern end of the proposed project.

The purchase and sale agreement did not contain language that addressed stormwater drainage and/or retention for the remaining property.  Mr. Fischer is in the process of selling the adjacent property and the seller is asking for assurances regarding these stormwater issues.  The easement addresses the buyer’s concerns and identifies the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved.

Options:

1.  Adopt the resolution as presented:  or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

Fiscal Impact: 

There is no fiscal impact to the City connected with this transaction.
