M., March 9, 1936. Council was called to order by Mayor Large, with <br />all Councilmen present except Hendershott and Reid. <br /> <br />,~ Minutes of the adjourned meeting of Febr~ary 24, 1936 were read, and no <br />corrections or objections appearing, were ordered filed as read. <br /> <br />The Judiciary Committee, by Chairman Harris, reported as to the bids of the <br />Abstract Companies, and made the following recommendation: "The furnishing of <br />present ownerships to the City for $1.00 an ownership is just part of a larger job <br />involving the quieting of title to each of these parcels after your lien is fore- <br />closed and this can be done most satisfactorily and eeon6mically by one of the <br />two'title companies writing title insurance iD the same manner it is done in <br />Portland, Med6ord, Astoria and Seaside, and because the Title Abstract Company has <br />signified their willingness to withdraw, we recommend the contract for the owner- <br />ships be given to Lane County Abstract Company at $1.00 per tract." John Bell <br />addressed the Council pointing out the procedure necessary for the furnishing of <br />auch information. <br /> <br />At this time Councilman Hendershott appeared in Council. <br /> <br />1 <br /> <br />Councilman Carlson wanted to know if it would be possible to hire an individual to <br />do this work, and thereby render a saving to the City. Mr. Bell answered pointing <br />out that in order to bring an Abstract Plant to its high standard it has necessitat <br />ed an investment of approximately $100,000.00, and that certainly if an individual <br />was able to furnish the information that the City was requestine that he would not <br />have such a large investment in his plant. He pointed out that in many instances <br />it was impossible to get absolutely correct descriptions from County records, but <br />due to a tract index system that they have been using for many years they are able <br />to render complete and correct service. City Attorney Calkins stated that the <br />, statute provides that the only person that needed to be listed in the advertisement <br />was the person to whom assessed, but that as a practical matter in collecting money <br />and in settling up these liens it was very essential that we know the present owner <br />and the mortgagee. <br /> <br />At this time Councilman Reid appeared in Council. <br /> <br />Councilman Harris was asked to re-read the Committee's recommendation and on <br />motion made and seconded the same was adopted by an aye and nay vote.-----..Councilmen <br />'voting aye 6, nay, Carlson, absent none.
