The meeting held on Monday led to a 7-2 vote to appropriate $345,000 to be used to take 4.8 acres by eminent domain from James Boyle, Seacoastonline reported.

Boyle and his attorney, John Kuzinevich, said they were open to reaching a settlement with the city.

The rear of Boyle's property includes a city sewer line running from the corner of Greenleaf Avenue to the Route 1 Bypass. Deputy City Attorney said the city needs the land due to the sewer line and for storm water management around the site.
