PETITIONERS FURTHER SHOW that a road was constructed along said strip of land to within 96 feet of the easterly end thereof, but that said road was ended at said point, and no road has ever been constructed on the east 96 feet of said strip of land; that since said strip of land was conveyed to Lake County for “public road only,” and Lake County has failed to construct a road on said East 96 feet, and the condition of said Deed has therefore failed;
THEREFORE, PETITIONERS PRAY that Lake County recognize the failure to construct a road on said East 96 feet of the above-described tract of land and that the East 96 feet of the above-described strip of land be re-conveyed to Petitioners as above set forth.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of County Commissioners of Lake County, Florida, that the Chairman and Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners be, and they are hereby authorized and empowered to execute in favor of Julia S. English, the forever owner and the Grantor of said strip of land hereinbefore described, a Quit Claim Deed, re-conveying to her the East 96 feet of the above described tract of land.
highway patrol station
Bill Reedy, Representative, appeared before the Board and stated he has been talking to Col. Kirkman of the Highway Patrol re: the highway station that is to be built in Lake County. Col. Kirkman said it would be necessary to have the deed into the Florida Department of Public Safety with a reverter clause to revert to Lake County within two years if the Station is not built or if it should be abandoned in the future. WHEREUPON, on a motion by Commr. Theus, seconded by Commr. Babb and carried, the following resolution was adopted:
WHEREAS, the Department of Public Safety of the State of Florida proposed to construct in Lake County a Highway Station for the reason that the location of a Highway Patrol Station has become essential in Lake County so that the traveling public can be better served by the Highway Patrol and its interlocking communications systems, and
WHEREAS, Lake County is now the owner of a tract of land lying just north of the Town of Fruitland Park, which is well located and acceptable to the Department of Public Safety for the construction of a Patrol Station, and
WHEREAS, the Department of Public Safety is not at present in a position to construct such station, but with the title vested in its name will be in a better position to secure funds for that purpose within the next two years, and
WHEREAS, the construction of a Highway Patrol Station on said property will be for a public interest.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of County Commissioners of Lake County, Florida, that the Chairman and Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners be, and they are hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver to the Department of Public Safety of the State of Florida a deed conveying the following described tract of land in Lake County, Florida:
The East 450 feet of the following described property:
From the point of intersection of the south line of Section 33, Township 18 South, Range 24 East, Lake County, Florida, with the west line of the right of way of the US Highway 441, run thence north along the west line of said right of way 370 feet to the point of beginning of this description. From said point of beginning, continue north along said right of way 270 feet; thence west along a line that is parallel with the south line of said Section 554.30 feet to the east line of the right of way of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad; thence south along said east line of right of way 270 feet; thence east parallel with the south line of said Section, 549.57 feet to the point of beginning.
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that there shall be included in said Deed the following reservations:
“Provided, however, that in the event the second party shall fail to construct or commence the construction of a Highway Patrol building following generally the plans of existing Highway Patrol buildings within two years from the date of this Deed, then this Deed shall be null and void, and the title vested in the second party by the terms hereof shall revert to and become vested in the Grantor as though this Deed had never been executed.
“And it is further provided that in the event the second party shall construct a Highway Patrol building as above set forth and at some later date shall vacate the same for the purposes for which it was constructed, then the fee title as vested in the second party shall revert to the first party.
“This Deed is executed for a public purpose and shall be used for no other purpose than the public interest.”
change in resolution re building on north bypass leesburg
Mr. Duncan advised the Board that Knowles & Company donated the right of way through its property on the Leesburg North By-Pass, but when the State Road Department cleared the right of way, it was raised and customers cannot get to the Phillips 66 Filling Station. But because of the fact that Knowles & Company are not named in the suit, the only way we can get this removed is to request the State Road Department to remove the building as they have been damaged. We have previously adopted a resolution pertaining to this matter, but the State Road Department requests that a change be made in the resolution; WHEREUPON, on a motion by Commr. Theus, seconded by Commr. Babb and carried, the following resolution was adopted:
WHEREAS, it has been brought to the attention of the Board of County Commissioners of Lake County, Florida, that with the widening of the pavement on the North By-Pass (North Boulevard), in the City of Leesburg, it was necessary to erect a retaining wall at or near the “Phillips 66” Service Station, located at approximately Station 88, on the road map for said right of way, the result of which was the blocking of the entrance to said Station, making access to the Service Station difficult and in part impossible; that said construction resulted in a damage to said Service Station property, although no part of the title thereto was required; that in order to provide proper access to said Station, it will be necessary to move a building, and
WHEREAS, the owner of said property heretofore, when said road was constructed through Leesburg, donated all of the right of way through the property required by the Road Department and has at all times cooperated with the Road Department in the construction of roads and highways;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of County Commissioners of Lake County, Florida, that the damage resulting to said property is recognized by said Board; that the resulting inaccessibility of the property because of the construction of a retaining wall is the cause of such damage; and that the State Road Department be requested to remedy such damage; to pay the cost of the removal of the building to provide property access, to wit: the actual cost of such removal; and that said sums be charged to the secondary gas tax funds due Lake County.
Clerk Owens read a letter from Henry W. Beims, 512 First Avenue, Mt. Dora re: replatting McDonald Terrace and renaming said subdivision Billingsley Acres. This letter registered his strenuous objection to the changes, whatsoever, and requested that he be given a plat of the changes desired in the replat so he might take whatever action is needed to object or approve the changes desired.
