Laam a letter dated
A public hearing was held concerning Ordinance 764, which has to do with the sale of a small strip of property behind City Hall. The property was formerly deemed as no longer useful to City purposes and categorized as surplus. An appraiser studied the property, and due to its small size, was unable to affix an appropriate value for it.
A similar piece of property, which was 800 square feet and purchased in 1980 was, valued at approximately $7,500. The committee took the price paid in 1980 and converted it to arrive at a formula for pricing the present property. They set it to have a minimum bid price of $7,500. A motion was passed to accept that valuation.
Mitchell Marx accounting gave a presentation of the recent audit of city financial records for FY 2008-2009. He made recommendations that all documentation of grants received, be first funneled through financial channels as a future policy.
