Photo by Norman Schimmel THE SARASOTA COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE WILL RECOMMEND THE COUNTY COMMISSION PAY A SIESTA PROPERTY OWNER $75,000 AND VACATE 220 FEET OF RIGHT OF WAY TO SETTLE A LAWSUIT By Rachel Brown Hackney Editor Sarasota County attorneys reached a tentative settlement with Siesta Village property owner Chris Brown during mediation on Feb. 1 regarding his third lawsuit against the county since 2007, County Attorney Stephen DeMarsh told The Sarasota News Leader this week. "It is tentative because any settlement must be approved by the [County] Commission," DeMarsh wrote in an email. "The administration and Office of the County Attorney will rec- ommend the settlement and seek Commission action," he added. On Feb. 5, DeMarsh wrote the News Leader, "I will be sending the Commission a memo today. The Commission will be asked to consider the tentative settlement at its next regular meeting. The two essential terms are that the County will pay Plaintiffs $75,000 for a full and final release and the Commission will need to vacate a very small section of right-of-way."
