BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to enter into the second amendment, a copy of which is on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. __________, with the University of Minnesota’s Natural Resources and Research Institute for services related to the Duluth streams project, extending the term thereof through March 31, 2006, and increasing the amount payable thereunder by $24,000, payable from Fund 535, Department 500, Organization 1915, Object 5441.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution is to authorize a second amendment to the city’s agreement with the NRRI for continuing the work on the Duluth streams project.
June of 2002, the city entered into an agreement with the U of M to have
the NRRI gather and interpret data from Duluth’s many streams including
data pertaining to stream history, flow and hydrology, water quality and
stream ecology. The original agreement was amended in 2004 to extend the
contract and continue work on the project and needs to be extended to
authorize work to be performed through the end of March 2006. This work
is ongoing and additional work needs to be done.
This second amendment would fund the continuation of this work through the end of March of 2006.
