The FRA is hosting a conference call designed to be an interactive discussion of questions and comments on the topic of Disposal of Property in a CRA on Wednesday, June 3rd at 9:00 a.m. EST. (Please note that this call will not be recorded.)
The purpose of the con call is to comment, discuss and share questions about the law related to your local efforts to dispose of property in CRAs. All of you as attendees on the call can respond, comment or ask questions. So please be sure to have your questions ready. Everyone is invited so be sure to pass this on to the folks who are most involved in these issues for your CRA.
Later the same day, we will be recording a 30-minute podcast with a featured speaker who will be interviewed by our executive director, Carol Westmoreland. We hope to get all the important points that we can identify to include in the podcast, since that is what will be recorded. We hope to be able to post the podcast recording by June 4th or 5th.
Description of discussion for the conference call and podcast:
The legal process in Chapter 163, Part III for disposal of property is unclear at best. The language can be read several ways, and there is important guidance missing in any Florida statutes. City and CRA attorneys have come up with suggested language to help, but it has not been adopted by the legislature. What can local government attorneys do in the meantime? We are seeking knowledge sharing by those attorneys who have successfully completed the disposal process in a CRA. Also, we want to hear from those who have suggestions based on their challenges. This interview style podcast with live questions and answers will focus on these issues.
