PRESENT: Council members A.Forsman, Kess, Debeltz, Callen, Campbell and Mayor Skraba
ABSENT: Council Member Omerza

Ely City Council will hold a public hearing regarding Ordinance 353 2nd Series, Vacating a portion of City-Owned Property, Lockhart Street and Alley between Lockhart Street and Vermillion Street.

Attorney Klun stated that in 2019 the city vacated a portion of Lockhart Street, when making that request the property owner, James Haugen, was also asking for the alleyway between Lockhart ant Vermillion Street to be Vacated along with an additional portion of Lockhart Street, but there may have been some confusion between Planning & Zoning and Klun Law and the Haugen’s. At that time there were some questions regarding access to the State land to the north of this area. This is completing the original vacation request.

Mayor Skraba asked if Lots 65-63 in Block 6 would be divided in half with each property owner.
Attorney Klun stated that the law says that each adjourning property owner will each own half of the vacated street/area.

Debeltz/Campbell moved to adjourn the public hearing at 5:20pm. Motion Carried 6-0-1 with Omerza Absent.
