A resolution declaring surplus and approving the disposition of certain parcels of real property in accordance with section 2.24.050(G) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws (Proposal No. 2020M-005PR-001).

WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Government owns certain parcels of property identified as shown in Section 1 below; and,

WHEREAS, Section 2.24.250(G) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws provides:

When the director of public property administration determines that no department or agency of the metropolitan government has a need for a parcel of property acquired through the delinquent tax-sale process established in Tennessee Code Annotated Section 67-5-2501 et seq., and upon which, as determined by the director of codes administration, the Metropolitan Code prohibits the construction of improvements requiring a building permit on account of small lot size or other lot characteristics, the director may, subject to the prior approval of the metropolitan council by resolution, execute an agreement to sell the parcel to the owner of any adjacent tract for a price not less than the most current appraised value ("appraised value") listed in the records of the metropolitan tax assessor, or to the adjacent tract owner offering the highest price if no adjacent owner is willing to pay the appraised value. The metropolitan council may authorize the disposition of more than one such property as part of the same resolution. The form of any agreement used pursuant to this section shall be approved by the director of law; and,

WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Government has determined that these certain parcels of property are no longer needed for governmental purposes.
