BY COUNCILOR NESS:
RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE
DULUTH TRANSIT AUTHORITY TO ENTER INTO A ONE MONTH EXTENSION OF ITS MANAGEMENT
AGREEMENT WITH ATE MANAGEMENT OF DULUTH, INC.
RESOLVED, that the city council hereby authorizes the Duluth transit authority
to enter into a one month extension of its current management agreement
with ATE Management of Duluth, Inc., which extension agreement is on file
in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. _____________.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
The term of the DTA management agreement with ATE Management of Duluth,
Inc., which is a subsidiary of First Transit, Inc., expired on September
30, 2001. The DTA has solicited proposals for future management and operation
of its transit system. The solicitation and evaluation of the proposals
has been delayed somewhat because of events beyond the control of the DTA.
Therefore, the DTA needs to extend its existing management agreement with
ATE Management one month so that it expires October 31, 2001. This resolution
and extension agreement accomplish this end.
