Monrovia Council Drops Gold Line Property-Sale from Agenda

The possible sale of property to the Gold Line for a maintenance yard - a topic that touched off a testy exchange between Monrovia City Councilman Tom Adams and Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, and a topic which prompted a special meeting of the Council, which was then continued until the council's April 5 meeting, and a topic about which Mayor Lutz and City Manager Scott Ochoa said was time-sensitive because of possible confiscatory actions by the state ... has been dropped.

The agenda for the City Council's April 5 meeting says:

"CANCELLED - Continued from April 5, 2011; Purchase and Sale Agreement between the Monrovia Redevelopment Agency and the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority for the Total Consideration of $39,627,818; Resolution Nos. 5-2011 and 2011-13

"Recommendation: This item has been withdrawn and requires no further action by the City Council and the Agency Board at this time."

  1. This deal has been on the table for months with no objections from the City Council. Now it's an area of controversy? Without this sale Metro, will not transfer any project funding to the Gold Line Authority. Thus, the entire project is now on hold, not only delaying the project but costing the project millions of dollars. All due to the bickering and posturing between Tom Adams and Mayor Lutz.Hopefully all parties will sober up, once the April 12 election is over and done with.
