DENYING THE VACATION OF A PORTION OF GARDEN DRIVE UPON A PETITION OF A MAJORITY OF ABUTTING LANDOWNERS

 

WHEREAS, a petition signed by the majority of property owners abutting a portion of Garden Drive in the City of Mountain Iron was received by the City Administrator on the 20thday of September, 2013; and

 

WHEREAS, the petition requested that the City Council pursuant to Minnesota Statute  §412.851 vacate a portion of Garden Drive adjacent to Lots 11, 12 and 13, Block 9 and Lots 5, 6, and 7, Block 10, South Grove Addition, Mountain Iron, Minnesota; and

 

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 Garden Drive to be vacated; and

 

WHEREAS, a public hearing to consider the vacation of such street was held on the 18thday of November, 2013, before the City Council in the City Hall located at 8586 Enterprise Drive South at 6:30 pm 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 22ndday of October, 2013 and all interested and affected persons were given an opportunity to voice their concerns and be heard; and
