RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE FREE CONVEYANCE OF TAX FORFEITED LANDS FOR STREET AND UTILITY PURPOSES LOCATED ALONG WEST FOURTH STREET BETWEEN 134TH AVENUE WEST AND 132ND AVENUE WEST IN FOND DU LAC.

BY PRESIDENT STOVER:

     RESOLVED, that the St. Louis County Board of Commissioners is hereby requested to free-convey to the city of Duluth the following tax forfeited parcels for street and utility purposes:

           Parcel B: That part of Lots 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37 and 39, Fond du Lac Fourth Street lying 20 feet northerly and 20 feet southerly of the following described line: Beginning at a point on the west line of Lot 21, Fond du Lac Fourth Street, 13.56 feet south of the northwest corner of said Lot 21, to a point on the east line of Lot 39, Fond du Lac Fourth Street, 54.83 feet south of the northeast corner of said Lot 39, thereby terminating.

           Parcel D: The southerly 46 feet of the northerly 98 feet of Lots 41, 43 and 45, Fond du Lac Fourth Street. That part of Lots 47, 49, 51, 53, 55 and 57, Fond du Lac Fourth Street described as follows: Beginning at a point on the west line of said Lot 47, 52 feet south of the northwest corner of said Lot 47; thence easterly 40 feet to a point on the east line of said Lot 47, 52 feet south of the northeast corner of said Lot 47; thence northeasterly 81.22 feet to a point on the east line of Lot 51, Fond du Lac Fourth Street, 38.10 feet south of the northeast corner of said Lot 51; thence north 17.30 feet to a point on the east line of said Lot 51, 20.80 feet south of the northeast corner of said Lot 51; thence northeasterly 82.68 feet to the northwest corner of Lot 57, Fond du Lac Fourth Street, thence east 40 feet to the northeast corner of said Lot 57; thence south 64.10 feet to a point on the east line of said Lot 57; thence southwesterly 242.44 feet to a point on the west line of Lot 47, Fond du Lac Fourth Street, 98 feet south of the northwest corner of said Lot 47; thence north 46 feet along the west line of said Lot 47 to the point of beginning. All of Lot 59, Fond du Lac Fourth Street.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution requests that the St. Louis County Board of Commissioners free-convey the described tax forfeited lands for street and utility purposes. During survey for the Fond du Lac water and sewer project it was discovered that an existing section of Fourth Street between 132nd and 134th Avenues West was not located within the city right of way but partially located on tax forfeited property. This transfer of property will correct the city of Duluth right-of-way for the actual alignment of Fourth Street and utilities.


This resolution for the free conveyance of tax forfeited lands to the city is a public-to-public transfer; therefore there is no tax base impact at this time. In addition, the land will not be available to join the tax base in the future.
