Re: Grundy County School Property Transfer

Dear Ms. Dykes

You have asked MTAS if the Town of Tracy City must honor a lease agreement that had existed between Grundy County and a private business club prior to the facility being transferred by quitclaim deed to the Town of Tracy City. It is our understanding that the deed was not referenced in the transfer or conditions of transfer. We do not believe that the Town of Tracy City is obligated to honor the lease agreement between Grundy County and the private business club.

We recommend that you all call representatives of the business club and other interested parties together and explain the City’s position. You may offer to let both parties, or one party, use the facilities as your Town desires. Many of the problems may disappear when the parties sit down together with the City to address the problems relating to a shared facility.

Please call me if I can be of further assistance.

Sincerely



Ron Darden
Municipal Management Consultant
