The Council reviewed the letter of intent to purchase property from the city. An appraisal would be needed before the property could be sold. The party purchasing the property would need to also get approvals from Oak Grove and Pierce County. Alderperson Knox questioned why the city purchased the land in the first place and was told a portion of the land was being used as a dump for the city.
