DISCUSSION & ACTION: ACCEPT OR REJECT OFFER ON 1993 HUMMEL AVENUE

Art Campbell explained to the board the offer is from F. B. Enterprises, LLC (to be formed). Kenneth S. Bolinger partnering with Matthew and Dawson Flinchbaugh to purchase 1993 Hummel Avenue.  They have made the offer on only four (4) parcels since they did not want to purchase the fifth parcel with the pond.  Discussion ensued. 

The estimate on the taxes are approximately $10,750, with the County portion being $1,675, and the municipal portion would be $1,755 and the school would be $7,320. The current assessed amount is $716,600.  The sale will not change the assessed value. In addition, since they did not check in agreement anything longer than a thirty (30) day due-diligence it becomes that.  Discussion ensued concerning the building and the 5th parcel.

They have made an offer of $600,000; with a $10,000 deposit. At closing, they will put 10% down, $60,000 asking the Development Authority to finance $540,000 on a twenty year amortization for five (5) years then paying the balance.  The payment for this would be @ 4%, $3,272/month.  At 4.5% the monthly payment would be $3,416/month.  

The Authority then discussed the history of the property, the leases/income and expenses for 2013, 2014 and 2015 for the property and also the pluses and minuses/pros and cons for the sale.

Mr. EBY made a motion to counter offer to F.B. Enterprises, LLC (to be formed) at $625,000 with the expectation the Authority will be provided with personal financials and personal guarantees or other acceptable method of guarantee of payment of the named partners. This counter offer is to include the addition of the fifth parcel (007).  The Authority will commit to enclosing the fencing around the pond or provide F.B. Enterprises with a credit of $5,000.
