Transfers can be made by the owner or owners of a lot, or we rely on notarized statements from the heirs that they are the sole survivors. If it is found that there are other heirs, then we rely on the following:
A Will from the deceased owner.
Power of Attorney. (living)
The executor of the estate
Notarized statements from all surviving heirs stating they do not object to the transfer.
Citizens can petition City Council through the Clerk of Council. Petition requests include: damage claims; and, purchases of property. There is no fee to file a petition (except encroachment processing fees; see forms for current fees). There is a $0.10 per page charge for copies of records, pursuant to State Open Records Act laws.
