There will be no vote Tuesday by the city commission to amend the lease of Amelia River Golf Course to allow for installation of a solar field and hangars on a 130-acre heavily wooded parcel at the airport.
City Attorney Tammi Bach issued the following statement late this afternoon:
“Commissioners: After consulting with Tom Miller of Amelia River Golf, LLC, Charlie George has determined that more information is needed before a lease amendment is considered. Therefore, the Amelia River Lease amendment will be discussed by the City Commission as a discussion item on May 16.”
Miller in partnership with Florida Public Utilities is seeking an amendment to the Amelia River Golf Course lease in order to build the solar array on 36 acres of the riverfront parcel. Miller also said several hangars would also be constructed on the land.
