Resolution to Purchase 1250 Lincolnshire Lane from the Washtenaw County Treasurer for $932.00 (8 Votes Required)


The Washtenaw County Treasurer’s Office notified the City in December of 2018 that the property located at 1250 Lincolnshire Lane, Tax Parcel No. 09-09-18-100-010, was in tax foreclosure for the 2016 tax year. The foreclosure proceedings are now complete and the Washtenaw County Treasurer, as owner pursuant to an order and judgment of foreclosure, is prepared to deed the property to the City for the cost of the delinquent taxes, interest, and fees.


1250 Lincolnshire Lane is an outlot within a platted subdivision and functions as a cul-de-sac traffic island. Typically, this area would be included in the public right-of-way. It is not clear why it was instead platted as an outlot. The City has water mains and sanitary sewer lines currently installed within the property. There is also a DTE streetlight. Staff recommends acquiring this parcel to be included as part of the public right-of-way.


Fiscal Impact:

The cost for this parcel is $932.00, which is available in the Sewage Disposal Operations and Maintenance Budget. No appraisal is required under City Code because all of the City’s acquisition costs will be less than $10,000.00.
