The Fifty Lakes City Council held a public hearing during its Tuesday, June 13, meeting to discuss vacating a portion of Northland Drive, according to the unapproved draft meeting minutes.

Residents Rocky and Barbara King requested the city vacate part of a right of way near their property on Northland Drive. Rocky King also told the council he would like to own the property where his well is located.

By a vote of 4-1, the council approved the vacation of the specified portion of the Northland Drive right of way as proposed by the Kings and requested a new survey be done to indicate the correct property lines. The action will be finalized at the July council meeting upon receipt of the survey. Council member Jay Weinmann was opposed.
