AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING SALE OF CERTAIN PROPERTY IN FOND DU LAC TO DAVID AUBREY ANDERSON.

BY COUNCILOR ECKENBERG:

        The city of Duluth does ordain:

                Section 1.     That the proper city officials are hereby authorized to sell and convey the following described property in St. Louis County, Minnesota, by quit claim deed, to David Aubrey Anderson for $2,700 and to execute all documents necessary with regard to said conveyance:

                        Lots 34 and 36, FOND DU LAC 4th Street, excepting, however, all minerals and mineral rights.

                Section 2.     This ordinance shall take effect 30 days from and after its passage and publication.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The purpose of this ordinance is to authorize the execution of an agreement to sell, by quit claim deed, city-owned property in Fond du Lac to David Aubrey Anderson for $2,700.

This property is located on the upper side of Highway 23 in Fond du Lac between 133rd and 134th Streets. It had previously been deemed to be excess of the city's needs and had been put up for auction, but no one bid on it. Subsequently, however, Mr. Anderson indicated a desire to purchase the property and is willing to pay the city's minimum price for it.
