FURTHER RESOLVED, that the city hereby expresses its appreciation for said donation from Gerald T. and Evelyn Moscatelli.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The purpose of this resolution is to accept a donation of land from Gerald T. and Evelyn Moscatelli in the Smithville area.

The donated land consists of one 108'x25' lot in an undeveloped area at approximately 95th Avenue West and Swenson Avenue; between the Willard Munger State Trail and the former DWP Railroad right-of-way.
