RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE CITY TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH ST. LOUIS COUNTY PROVIDING FOR THE SHARED USE OF INTERNET ACCESS BANDWIDTH AT THE COST OF $1,000 PER MONTH.

BY COUNCILOR NESS:

     RESOLVED, that the proper city officers are authorized to enter into an agreement with St. Louis County providing for the shared use of internet bandwidth at the cost of $1,000 per month, said agreement to be substantially in the form of Public Document No. ____________ on file in the office of the city clerk; funds payable from Fund 100, Agency 015, Organization 1513, Object 5309.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution authorizes the city to access internet bandwidth via a state of Minnesota connection accessed through the county’s network. This eliminates the need for the city to locate and purchase separate internet bandwidth. The city is currently in need of acquiring additional bandwidth and the connectivity to the state system via the county’s network is the most cost effective and satisfies the current needs of the city.
