of a resolution to authorize the City Administrator to enter into an agreement
with Great Dane to sell the property at
owner of the property the City sold in 2004 agreed to sell his property to
Great Dane, a company that manufactures and sells semi-trailers. Great Dane intends to use the site as a sales
lot for their heavy equipment. A sales
lot is a better use for the property because it would generate sales tax and it
would house newer semi-trailers.
Currently the land is divided into parking spaces that are rented
individually, often to old semi-trailers who leave the property in a messy
condition. Great Dane would also like to
purchase the City’s property, and offered $650,000 for the land locked
portion. An appraisal was done for the
Staff recommends approving this resolution.
Not approving the resolution would be an alternate consideration.
This item will be on the May 2, 2011 City Council meeting for formal approval.
