City to Sell Three Parcels of Land

The City of Lawrenceburg held their monthly council meeting last night, which ended with unexpected new business being addressed by the council.  The meeting opened with usual formalities of a prayer, pledge of allegiance, etc.  The meeting moved forward with no official reports from committees or the departments.  It then moved to the second reading and final approval of three ordinances that were introduced in previous meetings, which include the alcohol regulatory fee, returned check fee, and the ordinance to keep the city property tax rate the same for the coming year.  There was some discussion about taxes owed to the city from this year and previous years.  All three second readings were passed.

Mayor Goodlett then introduced three new resolutions that were not on the agenda.  All three resolutions involved declaring three parcels of land owned by the city as surplus so they could be later sold to interested private parties to save money on maintenance costs.  The first two parcels are between the old portion of the Lawrenceburg Cemetery and the Silverleaf Subdivision.  These pieces were originally part of a road known as McKee Lane.  But, the road has been abandoned for decades and is no longer being used as a road and cannot be used for expanding the cemetery.  The third parcel is a retention basin located in the Thoroughbred Estates Subdivision at the corner of North Main Street and Secretariat Drive.  This parcel, if sold, has to remain as a retention basin and no improvements can be made on that land.  All three resolutions passed by the council and the meeting was then adjourned.
