RESOLVED that the proper city officials are authorized to execute a release
of claims and accept settlement funds in the amount of $12,500, pursuant
to the terms and conditions set forth in that document entitled "release
of all claims" (Public Document No. __________________) which shall release
Architectural Resources, Inc., DPIC Companies and Seaway Engineering/SEH
