Authorizing the execution of a Purchase and Sale Agreement between the City of Madison and AnchorBank FSB for the purchase of two lots located at 513 Jacobson Avenue and 3533 Furey Avenue for the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Path and a storm water pond.
The Common Council enacted Resolution RES-14-00244 on April 8, 2014 which determined a Public Purpose and Necessity and adopted a Relocation Order for the acquisition of land interests required for the construction and maintenance of the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman path, a multi-purpose (bicycle and pedestrian path) and on-street bike route from the Capital City path at Marquette Street to the Marsh View path at Highway 30 (the "Path"). A portion of the land interests that are required to be acquired for the path are on two lots owned by AnchorBank FSB at 513 Jacobson Avenue and 3533 Furey Avenue within the City of Madison (collectively, the "Property").
Subsequent to the adoption of the resolution of Public Purpose and Necessity and the Relocation Order, City Engineering determined that the portion of the Property that is not within the land interests required to be acquired for the Path could be used to construct a storm water pond that would reduce the amount of suspended solids, phosphorous and other pollutants from entering lakes and streams.  New developments within the City have storm water ponds.  Older areas of the City do not have ponds and acquiring the entire Property will provide an opportunity to the City to install a storm water pond at this location and reduce pollution entering Starkweather Creek.
A Letter of Intent containing the terms and conditions of a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the "PSA") has been negotiated and executed between the City and AnchorBank FSB for the purchase of the Property.  Adoption of this resolution will authorize the execution of the PSA.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Common Council of the City of Madison hereby authorizes the execution of a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the "Agreement") between the City (the "Buyer") and AnchorBank FSB (the "Seller") for the purchase of two lots that are owned by the Seller located at 513 Jacobson Avenue and 3533 Furey Avenue, Madison, Wisconsin (collectively, the "Property"), legally described in Exhibit A below and depicted on attached Exhibit B, for the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Path and a storm water pond, on the following terms and conditions:
1.      The Property.  The Buyer shall purchase and the Seller shall sell and convey by Special Warranty Deed (the "Deed") fee simple title to the Property, including all related improvements if any located thereon and all appurtenances thereto.
2.      Effective Date.  The "Effective Date" shall be the later date of execution of the Agreement by the Seller or the Buyer, as indicated on the signature page.
3.      Purchase Price.  The total purchase price of the Seller's interest in the Property (the "Purchase Price") shall be One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000). The Purchase Price shall be payable in cash at closing, subject to the adjustments and prorations herein provided.
4.      Delivery of Documents.  Within ten (10) days of the Effective Date, the Seller will reproduce at the Seller's expense and send to the Buyer at the Buyer's office copies of all environmental studies, reports, surveys, permits, applications and remediation plans or assessments of the Property and all, studies, reports, plans or assessments related to the condition of the Property in the Seller's possession or control.  Said documents are provided for the Buyer's convenience and without representation or warranty of any kind by the Seller.
5.      Buyer's Contingencies.  The Buyer shall have ninety (90) days from the Effective Date (the "Buyer's Contingency Period") to satisfy or waive the following contingencies or to otherwise terminate the Agreement, unless extended as provided herein:
a.      Environmental.  The Buyer obtaining, at its sole cost and expense, a Phase 1 and/or Phase 2 environmental assessment of the Property that is satisfactory, in the Buyer's sole discretion, to the Buyer.
b.      Appraisal.  The Buyer obtaining, at its sole cost and expense, an appraisal supporting the Purchase Price.

6.      Access to the Property.  The Buyer and the Buyer's authorized agents and contractors shall be permitted access to the Property for the purpose of conducting a Phase 1 or 2 environmental assessment and/or wetlands delineation survey of the Property at reasonable times with at least twenty-four (24) hour notice to the Seller.  The Buyer will repair all damages caused by its inspections, at the Buyer's cost, so that the condition of the Property is returned to as good or better condition as existed prior to the inspection.
7.      Title Insurance. The Seller shall provide to the Buyer at the Seller's expense at least ten (10) business days prior to closing a commitment from a title insurance company (the "Title Company") licensed in Wisconsin to issue title insurance in the amount of the Purchase Price upon the recording of proper documents, together with a gap endorsement.  The commitment shall show title to the Property, as of a date not to be in the condition called for in the Agreement, and further subject only to liens which will be paid out of the proceeds of the closing and to any standard title insurance exceptions acceptable to the Buyer.  The Buyer shall notify the Seller of any valid objection to title, in writing, prior to closing.  The Seller shall have a reasonable time, but not exceeding fifteen (15) days, to remove the objections and closing shall be extended as necessary for this purpose.  Should the Buyer be unable or unwilling to carry out the Agreement by reason of a valid legal defect in title which the Seller is unwilling to waive, the Agreement shall be void.
8.      Lease.  The Seller shall represent that the Property is currently not leased and the Seller agrees that it shall not enter into any new lease or rental agreement for the Property, or any portion thereof, during the Buyer's Contingency Period and through the date of closing, without the prior written consent of the Buyer.

c.      The Buyer shall pay all recording/filing fees except that the Seller shall pay the recording/filing fees for such documents as are required to be recorded/filed in order to cause title to the Property to be in the condition called for by the Agreement.
d.      All 2014 real estate taxes with respect to the Property shall be prorated between the Buyer and the Seller as of the date of closing based upon the latest known assessment and latest known mil rate.
