City Sued: In January we reported on a condemnation hearing, where special commissioners set the sale price on a piece of property sought by the City of Liberty at $134,000. Following that hearing, the property owner had 20 days to accept. They did not. Liberty City Attorney Randy Gunter said now the California based owner has filed a lawsuit against the city, which is in essence, an appeal.  Now the action will go through mediation, negotiations, or go to a court hearing in County-Court-at-Law before Judge Tommy Chambers, or a jury.

Both approved resolutions dealing with the financing of the new street project. They authorized $3.2 million in sales tax revenues to finance part of the new street cost. The LCDC board approved the idea 4 to 1. City council approved the motion 6 to 1. Louie Potetz who sits on both the city council and LCDC board was the no vote in both votes.
