Council to Decide Edwards Brothers Question Feb. 10

Update: On Feb. 10, 2014 the city clerk announced that the special session had been cancelled.

The city of Ann Arbor has announced a special session of the city council for Feb. 10, 2014 at 6 p.m. in city council chambers. The purpose is to consider the question of exercising the city’s right of first refusal to purchase the 16.7 acres of land owned by Edwards Brothers Malloy on South State Street. The session will include a closed session to discuss land acquisition.

The 6 p.m. start time is different from the council’s regular 7 p.m. start time. The council has a budget working session scheduled for 7 p.m. on the same day.

The council had considered the question at its most recent meeting on Feb. 3, 2014, but postponed a vote after a closed session lasting more than 90 minutes.
