To The Daily Sun,
The City Council has received an received an unsolicited offer from the Lakeport Landing marina to purchase three contiguous parcels of city-owned land near the intersection of Elm Street and Union Ave. One of the parcels includes the former Lakeport Fire Station building, which has not been an active fire station for many years. It was until recently used for storage but is no longer needed for that function either.
The marina must vacate its present showroom/office building by November 2017 and is looking for a suitable site to construct a new building.
Before the City Council can even begin consideration of selling the three properties, it must first vote to declare them to be "surplus." The first step in that process is to host a public hearing that gives residents a chance to voice their opinions on the matter and that hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 11 at City Hall. The hearing will be held during the regular City Council meeting and will start shortly after the meeting itself is called to order at 7 p.m.
If you have a opinion on this matter, I urge you to attend this hearing and share it with the council.
Mayor Ed Engler
