The Lee County Public Building Authority met March 24 to discuss the right-of-way statutory warranty deed for the Bush Road project and a quitclaim deed for the T.K. Davis Justice Center complex land.
The meeting began with the selection of officers by the newly appointed members: president, Randy Price; vice president, Adam Littleton; and secretary/treasurer, Julie Rendleman. Members also determined how long each of their terms will be, staggering their terms so that experienced members remain on the Authority.
The members of the building authority voted to transfer a right-of-way statutory warranty deed to the city of Opelika for the Bush Road Project, a plan that will add a traffic signal at Gateway Drive and create a multi-lane access road from Gateway Drive to Corporate Drive.
Members also voted to transfer a quitclaim deed to the Lee County Commission for the T.K. Davis Justice Center land. According to County Administrator Roger Rendleman, the property should have been transferred back to the county in 1982.
Rendleman said the authority probably will not need to meet again until 2026.
