WHEREAS, the City Administrator reviewed and examined the signatures on said petition and determined that such signatures constituted a majority of the landowners abutting upon the portion of the street to be vacated; and

WHEREAS, a public hearing to consider the vacation of such street was held on the 3rd day of December, 2018, before the City Council in the City Hall located at 8586 enterprise Drive South at 6:30 p.m. after due published and posted notice had been given, as well as personal mailed notice to all affected property owners by the City Administrator on the 11th day of November, 2018 and all interested and affected persons were given an opportunity to voice their concerns and be heard; and
