Madeira Beach, FL

Madeira Beach, FL: (Jul-01-07) Alex Archibald, the grandson of one of the original donors of the Archibald Park, a beach front park, filed a lawsuit against the city over the agreement to his claim that any commercial use is prohibited under both the warranty deed turning over the beach property to the federal government in 1931 and the subsequent quit-claim deed from the Interior Department turning the park over to the city in 1972. The lawsuit came at a time when the 1930s-era Snack Shack at Archibald Park got a reprieve and petition organizers were given another 30 days to collect the remaining 47 voter signatures required to force the city to abandon earlier plans to demolish the building. Alex Archibald accused the commission of using "shenanigans" several years ago when it tried to lease the Snack Shack as a destination restaurant. That unsuccessful attempt resulted in a settlement, in which the city ended up paying $500,000 in a court settlement with the concession holder. [ST. PETERSBURG TIMES]
