ORDINANCE NO. __________

AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE TRANSFER OF CERTAIN PROPERTY IN THE EAST HILLSIDE AREA TO THE HOUSING AND REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY OF DULUTH.

BY COUNCILOR STOVER:

The city of Duluth does ordain:

Section 1. That the proper city officials are hereby authorized to convey the following described property in St. Louis County, Minnesota, by quit claim deed, to the Housing and Redevelopment Authority of Duluth, and to execute all documents necessary with regard to said conveyance:
Lot Six (6), Block One Hundred Twenty-six (126), PORTLAND DIVISION OF DULUTH, and the adjoining land lying between said Lot and the center line of 6th Street, extended and between the East and West lines of said Lot, extended to the center of 6th Street, being a part of the NW 1/4 of SE 1/4, Section Twenty-two (22), Township Fifty (50), Range Fourteen (14).

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


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) purchased this property in 1999 as part of the At Home in Duluth Program. A mistake was made at that time and the deed went from the seller to the City instead of the HRA. This ordinance seeks to correct this error by executing a quit claim deed for this property to the HRA.
