13. ELK RIDGE DEVELOPMENT - Quit Claim Deed Approved
Gary Sonntag reported that in reviewing the property and plat information on the Elk Ridge development, it appears that the subdivision boundaries overlap onto Price City property. Earlier in the project review, it was decided that the Fairgrounds Road right-of-way would be sixty (60) feet wide centered on the existing paved road. The Elk Ridge development then created a boundary description that tied to the west right-of-way line. The City's property goes further to the west beyond the right-of-way line. Consequently, the Elk Ridge development has overlapped onto the City property. Gary explained the reason for the overlap was that in 1987, the property where the development is going as well as the property on the other side of the road was owned by a group of people. It is unknown if there was ever a description for the road, other than it was a County road. At the time the property was sold to the City in 1987, a description was established that incorporated the road. When Mr. Poloni purchased the property, he acquired what was remaining and at the time, he did not have a specific description other than it was the entire parcel less what was purchased by the City. As stated above, it was determined that the Fairgrounds Road right-of-way would be sixty feet, 30 feet on both sides. A boundary description for the subdivision was created that matched the right-of-way description. As it turns out, the City's deeded property goes beyond that right-of-way. Gary asked if the property affected should be given or sold to T.H. Poloni, the owner of the Elk Ridge development? The Council questioned if the developer had given up any of his property for the roadway, and if so, if there was a possibility of a property trade? Gary indicated that the owner had not given up any of his property at this time. T. H. Poloni stated that a title company is handling this portion of his development. He has been told that he has given up some of his property, but he is not sure. The property in question is seven hundredths of an acre. The Council questioned if the property should be put up for bid. Nick Sampinos stated that if it is determined that the City has to sell the parcel of property to the developer, he doesn't feel there will be a problem, and that the requirements for the bid can be waived. He doesn't think anybody will contest the sale as the City has ample justification for their actions, such as (1) The City does not want to hold up a project previously approved; (2) there are no adjacent property owners affected; (3) Mr. Poloni is the only logical buyer or grantee of the property, as nobody will realistically buy a sliver of property right next to this development. He recommended that the sliver of property be conveyed to the developer by quit claim deed and that the City reserve the right to determine if there will be compensation received from the developer. MOTION. Councilmember Piccolo moved that the above recommendations of Mr. Sampinos be approved. Motion seconded by Councilmember Wheeler and carried.
14. CLINT SANDERSON DEVELOPMENT - Demand On Letter of Credit Approved
Gary Sonntag reported that Clint Sanderson completed a Development Agreement and Letter of Credit in the amount of $17,571.00 for the required improvements to be installed in front of his project at 326 East 200 South. To date the improvements have not been started. The Letter of Credit expires on November 1st. Mr. Sanderson has been asked to extend the Letter of Credit, but has not done so to date. He requested permission to make a Demand on the Letter of Credit if it is not received. MOTION. Councilmember Denison moved that the request be granted. Motion seconded by Councilmember Nikas and carried.
15. PERMISSION TO DELETE OLD FUNDS - Approved
Pat Larsen requested permission to delete the following funds which are no longer needed - Centennial Fund, Literacy, CDBG, CDBG Library Restrooms, Museum, Peace Garden, Utility Operating Fund, and the BTAC Renovation. MOTION. Councilmember Nikas moved that the request be granted. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
