Gainesville City Commissioners decided to ask Alachua County Commissioners for more time to settle the Regional Transit System land dispute during its city commissioner meeting Thursday afternoon.
On May 10, the county put its lawsuit on hold and gave the city 30 days to settle the dispute.
City commissioners want both sides to work together to work out the future of the old RTS headquarters, since both the county and city are interested in redevelopment.
The city is holding off on what future uses the old building will have until after the dispute has been settled.
“The governing bodies, basically, have corresponded in official letters and agreed that there was a mutual beneficial interest in stopping the legal actions so that we can really discuss the matter,” said Bob Woods, the city government spokesperson.
