Town Hall Issue Will Go To Voters Delete 09/26/2011 at 2:33pm

Town Hall Issue Will Go To Voters

This morning, the Town Council held a workshop where they discussed having a referendum asking the Town's voters whether or not they would be interested in making a longterm commitment to either buying, building or leasing a permanent Town Hall. Currently, the Town renews its lease every three years with the owners of the building at 2523 Estero Boulevard because the Town's charter prevents any debt commitments lasting longer than that period of time.

Town Manager Terry Stewart began by telling the council that the building they currently lease is now valued at $950,000 though the owner has recently asked for a new appraisal. He also reminded council that the last time he approached them about the Town purchasing the property they were 'less than enthusiastic', which brought up the sticky topic of imminent domain.
