County Attorney Dylan <br />Reingold clarified that the 15 -day due -diligence period, stated in the <br />Commercial Contract, would give the buyer the opportunity to decide if the <br />property would be suitable for their needs. <br />Commissioner Zorc then mentioned that the property was sold to the current <br />owner in March of 2020. Emergency Services Director Tad Stone stated that <br />he had looked at the property when the parcel was on the market previously, but <br />there was not access to 18th Street, as the access easement was not available to <br />be purchased at the time. County Administrator Jason Brown provided <br />background related to the prior sale of the property. He made mention that <br />water and sewer were readily available at the location being discussed, and he <br />spoke in favor of the purchase. <br />Indian River County Florida Page 1 <br />
