        (a)     To the General Fund, up to an amount each year which is equal to the cost to the city of operating the one hour free parking program to be contained in the agreement referred to in Resolution No. 01-0369 for that year;
        (b)     Commencing in the year 2002 and until the end of the year 2006, all amounts in excess of those transferred pursuant to Paragraph 1. of this resolution above in any year, to the Old Downtown Development Fund; and

        RESOLVED FURTHER that this resolution shall be deemed to be effective only in the event that the agreement described in Resolution No. 01-0369 between the reservation business committee of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa is entered into by the city prior to December 31, 2001, and if such agreement is not so entered into before that date, this resolution shall be deemed to null and void and of no further effect.

This resolution will only go into effect if and when a agreement is reached with the band for the expansion of slot machine gaming at the casino; otherwise it will not go into effect.

For a more detailed explanation, see the statement of purpose attached to Resolution No. 01-0369.
