RESOLUTION CHANGING ADMINISTRATION OF HAWK RIDGE NATURE PRESERVE.

BY COUNCILOR REINERT:

     BE IT RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement an agreement, substantially the same as that on file with the city clerk as Public Document No. __________, between the city, Duluth Audubon Society and Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, which agreement will transfer the obligations of Duluth Audubon Society for administration of the Hawk Ridge facility to Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, Inc.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  In 1972, the Audubon Society gave money to the city which was used to purchase land for a bird observation area. In 1973, the city obtained additional, adjacent, land as a buffer zone. Both areas have been administered by the Duluth Audubon Society under contract. DAS has had a committee do this work. Now, the committee has incorporated into a non-profit. The parties wish this nonprofit to be the legal entity to continue the work done under the existing contract.
