BY COUNCILOR FENA:

WHEREAS, the McQuade protected access committee continues to make progress on the project; and

WHEREAS, administrative services will be required for the next six months in order for the committee to complete its current work; and

WHEREAS, an existing agreement with Cheryl Erickson has been completed; and

WHEREAS, the authorized project budget by Cheryl Erickson has been expended; and

WHEREAS, the McQuade protected access committee recommends Cheryl Lynn Erickson be contracted for her services.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that proper city officials are hereby authorized to increase existing Agreement #17153 with Cheryl Lynn Erickson for administrative services by an amount not to exceed $13,000 payable from Fund 100, Agency 015, Org. Misc. 2020, Obj. MS26; said agreement to be substantially in the form of Public Document No. _____________ on file in the office of the city clerk. The effective term of the contract shall be from July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2001.



STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The McQuade protected access committee continues their process of dealing with the issue of the development of a protected access in the vicinity of McQuade Road. It appears based on the results from the efforts to secure funding for the project and finalize the design of the facility there will continue to be a need for administrative and public outreach services to serve the committee. The state of Minnesota has allocated another sum of funding to help cover such costs.

The McQuade protected access committee has determined that they prefer to have Ms. Erickson continue to provide services and recommends the city amend her agreement for the next 12 months. The Minnesota department of natural resources has committed to provide $19,000 to cover the amount of this contract.
