BY COUNCILOR STAUBER:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officers are authorized and directed to execute a second grant agreement amendment to Contract No. 20025, on file with the city clerk as Public Document No. ________________, between the city and the state of Minnesota department of natural resources, remediation fund grant program for land acquisition of Burlington Northern Railroad property on Grassy Point, extending the grant expiration date from December 30, 2006, to June 30, 2007.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The city entered into Agreement No. 20025 via council Resolution 06-0055 with the state of Minnesota, department of natural resources, remediation fund grant program. Due to unforeseen delays in completing the land purchase from the Burlington Northern Railroad, Agreement No. 20025 is amended to extend its expiration date to June 30, 2007. Amendment No. 1, via Resolution 06-0514, earlier extended the grant deadline date to December 30, 2006. This second extension will allow adequate time to complete the land purchase transaction.
