Approved – that is what Port Huron City Council said concerning a memorandum of understanding with the developers at the former Sperry’s building that the city will vacate the vault beneath the sidewalk adjacent to the building. According to Mayor Pauline Repp, this “is the same agreement that a previous council made in 2011- with essentially the same parties, the developers just added additional partners.” The vote was opposed by council members Ken Harris and Brian Moeller. At the previous city council meeting, Port Huron city corporation counsel Todd Shoudy stated that the agreement was made between the city and Landmark Development prior to the building’s sale. The new agreement was made under the name Sperry’s Landmark, with financial support of an additional partner. Shoudy says the city never updated the agreement to reflect the change in ownership, which he says legally freed them of their obligation to vacate the vault. Sperry’s Landmark is obligated to invest $12 million into the building for renovations and redevelopment, including the new roof that was placed on the building this year.
