Scottsdale City Council has agreed to settle an issue that began several decades ago and involved a handful of properties developed into a golf course.
Ultimately, the city will acquire title to three parcels of land for $75,000, and pay any outstanding real estate tax liabilities for the parcels in the amount of $35,000.
The settlement was approved as part of the council’s Sept. 19 consent agenda. The council agreed to a settlement of claims in the lawsuit, Indian Bend Properties v. City of Scottsdale, that includes a $50,000 budget appropriation transfer and a General Fund Capital Contingency budget transfer for $60,000.
