Dear Richard Outzen:

Thank you for your interest in public records of the City of Pensacola. Your request was received in this office on 12/9/2013 and assigned this reference number W000189-120913 and will be processed in the order in which it is received. Please use this number when corresponding with the Public Records office.

Record Requested: There is one more document that the Independent News requests concerning the notification of default sent on Nov. 15 to Ray Russenberger of Seville Harbour, Inc. and Collier Merrill of Merrill Land, LLC. by attorney Nix Daniel, on behalf of the city of Pensacola and Mayor Ashton Hayward. It was a notice of default under the Pitt Slip Marine Lease, dated Sept. 18, 1985, as partially assigned to Merrill Land, LLC under a sublease dated April 20, 2000. The Independent requests a copy of the partial assignment signed by representatives of Seville Harbour and Merrill Land and has the signature of City Manager Tom Bonfield giving the city’s consent to the partial assignment. We would like the agreement by 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 9 because of our news deadline. The document should be readily available since it was the basis of the notice. Thank you. Rick Outzen Publisher, Independent News 850-438-8115
