Title

An Ordinance to Amend Section 1:209 of Chapter 8 (Boards and Commissions) of Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Ordinance No. ORD-20-20)

Memorandum

This amendment to Section 1:209 will revise the procedure for real estate transactions for the Ann Arbor Housing Commission. If amended, the Council will continue to approve the Housing Commission’s real estate transactions, but the Housing Commission or entities formed by the Housing Commission will be able to execute purchase agreements and have property deeded to them directly. Historically, the City has had to purchase property on behalf of the Housing Commission and then convey it to the Commission. This amendment also clarifies that only specific contracts and leases regarding rights of possession may be approved by the City consistent with Michigan law.
