ITEMS FROM MAYOR & COUNCIL, APPOINTMENTS, ANNOUNCEMENTS, AGENDA ADJUSTMENTS <br /> A. Condominium Conversion Moratorium Ordinance--Mr. Delay referred to <br /> the State law that 30-day notice be qiven tenants prior to conversion. <br /> As of yesterday, the Patterson Tower residents had received notices <br /> of intent of conversion by reqistered mail. He wondered about these <br /> pressure tactics and wanted to know from the Attorney's office if <br /> those residents would be affected now that the moratorium has been <br /> adopted and activity has been halted. Joyce Benjamin, City Attorney's <br /> office, said the moratorium is in effect and activity is halted for <br /> six months. She cannot speculate as to what will happen after six <br /> months and why notice was mailed at this time. The residents have <br /> no obliqation to deal with the notice sent.
