RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF DULUTH, TB PARTNERSHIP AND JENNIFER M. HUNTLEY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND ASSESSMENT OF AN EIGHT INCH PVC SEWER MAIN IN NORTH SEVENTH AVENUE WEST FROM SECOND ALLEY TO APPROXIMATELY 75 FEET NORTHERLY.

BY COUNCILOR STOVER:

RESOLVED, that the proper city officers are hereby authorized and directed to execute an agreement between the city of Duluth, Jennifer M. Huntley and TB Partnership for the purpose of constructing an eight inch PVC sewer main in North Seventh Avenue West from Second Alley to 75 feet northerly and assessing the cost of said project among the parties to the contract; said agreement filed as Public Document No. ____________________________.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Properties owned by Jennifer Huntley and TB Partnership are served by an old private sewer line which has recently failed. The present Minnesota plumbing code prohibits more than one building being served with a private sewer line. This agreement authorizes the replacement of the private sewer line with a eight inch PVC city sewer main. The cost of the main will be assessed against the properties over 15 years with Jennifer Huntley paying 30% of the project cost or $5,000, whichever is less, and TB Partnership paying for the remainder of the project.
