MOTION

 

Upon recommendation and opinion of Randal M. Brown, General Counsel, the Board of Directors (Board) for the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) (1) approves the acquisition of 1026 Tennessee and 12440 E. Jefferson, Detroit, MI (the Property) by GLWA for an amount not to exceed $2,000 from the Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA) and (2) authorizes for the Interim Chief Executive Officer to take such other action as may be necessary to accomplish the intent of this vote, including the execution of the Purchase Agreement and closing documents. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JUSTIFICATION

For replacing the existing Conners Creek Pump Station with a new pump station, GLWA needs to acquire land near the existing pump station. GLWA acquired 12400 East Jefferson and is set to close on 1001 Clairpointe in the next few weeks. In the title work for 1001 Clairpointe, it identified that two small parcels, 1026 Tennessee and 12440 E. Jefferson, are not owned by the East Lake Baptist Church and instead are owned by DLBA. GLWA submitted an application to acquire the properties from DLBA. Subject to GLWA and DLBA Board approvals, DLBA offered both parcels for a purchase price of $1,583. Since making the offer, DLBA is considering whether there are alternatives to market-rate sale. This resolution would grant the Interim Chief Executive Officer the ability to acquire the properties for an amount not to exceed $2,000. Pursuant to the Procurement Policy, the Board must approve the purchase of real property regardless of the amount of the sale.

 

BUDGET IMPACT

There are sufficient funds allocated for the new Conner Creek Pump Station in the CIP to acquire the land.
