RESOLUTION ACCEPTING DONATION OF AMENDED EASEMENT FROM ISD 709 ADJACENT TO ORDEAN MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR THE LAKEWALK TRAIL.

CITY PROPOSAL:

     RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to accept the donation of an amended easement, a copy of which is on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. __________, from Independent School District No. 709, adding authority to use the easement, located on Ordean Middle School property, for the extension of the Lakewalk recreational trail.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution will authorize the acceptance of the donation of an amended easement over property located on the southern border of the Ordean Middle School property. The city currently has an easement over the property in question and has located major water main facilities on that easement. The easement as originally granted, however, can only be used for water main purposes so an amendment was needed to allow the easement to be used for recreational trail purposes. The school district has approved the amendment at no cost to the city.
