APPROVE EMINENT DOMAIN FOR IDENTIFIED FLOOD BUYOUT PROPERTIES
The City has striven to reach amicable agreements with the property owners on purchase prices for the identified properties. The City has allowed far more time and extended far more in written communication with the property owners than is required by the federal Uniform Relocation Act. Therefore, the point has been reached to assure that the acquisition process does not affect the timeline for flood control projects authorization of Eminent Domain is necessary.
City Council approve attached resolution authorizing special counsel for Eminent Domain to commence proceedings for acquisition of properties needed for flood control projects for 1209 6th Avenue SW owned by John and Susan Dokken, partial parking lot take at 400 9th Street SW owned by the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge No. 822, and 2816 14th Ave. SW and 1318 28th Street SW owned by Robert and Annelies Roberts
