BY COUNCILOR STAUBER:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officers are hereby authorized to enter into a first amendment to Agreement No. 19606, a copy of which is on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. ___________, with the Superior Hiking Trail Association, substituting and adding property thereto.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The purpose of this resolution is to authorize the first amendment to the agreement between city and the Superior Hiking Trail Association, adding three parcels for which a license has been granted to the city by Mn/DOT.
The city originally entered into an agreement with the association for the construction and operation of the trail in 2004. In order to be able to complete a continuous trail through the city, permits were needed to cross various Mn/DOT rights-of-way. The department refused to grant the needed permits to the association and required that the city accept them and then sub-permit them to the association. This resolution adds those areas to the areas covered by original agreement and also passes the city’s obligations under the Mn/DOT permit through to the association, in so far as possible.
