From city administrator Steve Powers, an email sent today Jan. 9, 2014 at 2:27 p.m.:

The City is operating on a timeline to provide notice to Edwards Brothers prior to February 25, 2014. This calculation is made from Nov. 27th, 2013.

By: Douglas Douglas Wed, 08 Jan 2014 18:12:14 +0000 Regarding the Edwards Bros. property and the city’s window to exercise the right to buy. Was it ever determined at what moment the clock started ticking on the 60 day window and what it the city’s deadline to match the University’s offer on the property?

I’ve been working on the assumption that UM’s offer included a buffer that would prevent the city from matching the offer. Is Monday’s action correctly interpreted as showing “due diligence” or is there someone out there who believes the city may actually match?
