SUNDSTROM BUILDING PROPOSAL – The city has received a contract proposal from Miguel Contreras in the amount of $130,000.  The City Administrator indicated that he had had a quick appraisal done on the building that had come back at $160,000.  The proposed buyer plans to use the property as a rental investment.  He plans to rehabilitate and remodel the building for retail on the first floor and apartment spaces upstairs.  He intends to do the work himself.  Mayor Rolander indicated that his office was handling the contract and the same conditions would apply as when the city purchased the building from the previous owner.

Becky Anderson moved to give a counter offer of $165,000.  Motion seconded by Betty Nelson.  After discussion of the need for additional information the motion failed.


Gary Shogren moved to request more specifics from the buyer, such as a business plan and to provide references.  Rick seconded the motion that, after further discussion, failed.


Lloyd Rohr moved to give a counter offer of $155,000.  Motion seconded by David Spellman.  After more discussion, Lloyd Rohr moved to amend the motion to be $165,000 for the counter offer.  Motion seconded by David and passed unanimously by roll call vote.  The vote on the amended motion passed by roll call vote with 6 yes votes and 1 no vote (Gary Shogren).
