City of Stuart Lease or Sale Policy
Policy Regarding the Lease or Sale of City-owned Property:
Section 2-254. Statement of Intent.
It is the intent of the city commission that no lease of city-owned real property shall be approved by the city commission that does not provide an annual return on investment of at least ten percent. It is the further intent of the city commission that no sale of city-owned real property shall be approved by the city commission for a purchase price of less than the fair market value of the property at the time of sale. This expression of intent may be waived by the city commission upon a determination that a particular lease or sale of city-owned real property for a lesser amount is nevertheless in the best interest of the public.
