City attorney Scott Howard said the land exchange, in the works for several years, has not actually been completed as yet. The deal was approved to settle litigation by Gangi over city controls on the Deerpass land, some of which Gangi is retaining for development.
Drayman, the first foothill representative on the council in a number of years, touched on several other local issues during Tuesday's council meeting.
He asked public works director Steve Zurn what happened to five benches removed from Honolulu Avenue during the city improvement project on the street. "We only got one back," he said.
Zurn said the company, which formerly supplied the benches to the city, was out of business and a new supplier needs to be found.
The council member also asked if the city will restore ornamental sidewalks lost during slurry work on the street. Zurn said the crosswalks just need to be repainted.
Drayman, who came to citywide attention as president of the Montrose Shopping Park Association, said he has stepped down from that post upon his election to the council. The new president is Dale Dawson, of Montrose Rose Gifts.
