RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING EXECUTION OF AN AMENDMENT TO A PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH F.I. SALTER FOR PROPERTY APPRAISAL SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH THE ACQUISITION OF THE LEPAK PROPERTY, INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF SUCH AGREEMENT FROM $20,000 TO $37,000.
BY PRESIDENT GILBERT:

RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are hereby authorized to execute Supplemental Agreement No. 2 to a professional services agreement with F.I. Salter Company, Inc., for property appraisal services in connection with the acquisition of the Lepak property, which agreement is on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. _______________, and which agreement increases the estimated total compensation from $20,000 to $37,000, which shall be payable from the self insurance fund.



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution increases by $17,000 the estimated compensation to be paid to F.I. Salter Company for appraisal services in connection with the condemnation of the Lepak property on Rice Lake Road. This increase is necessary because the Lepaks are appealing the award of the commissioners in this matter, which will require the appraiser to spend a significant amount of time preparing for and participating in discovery proceedings and a potentially lengthy trial.
