Assistant Administrator Doboszenski described the changes to the developer's agreement since the last approved agreement. Doboszenski stated the parties involved in the agreement have changed, and the revised paragraph 20, which was provided to the Council, allows the bank to finish the project in the event there was default by the developer. Doboszenski invited Engineer Weiss to speak on paragraph 11A; water service to the site.

Weiss addressed the Council regarding the agreement with Maple Grove and Dayton to have water available to the site for a five year fee of $20,000. Weiss stated he was planning on amending paragraph 11 A to reflect this, however the way paragraph 11 A is written still allows for this to occur and Kinghorn is comfortable with the existing language. Weiss stated he has talked with Kinghorn, and Kinghorn knows the City's expectations regarding the water main.

Mayor Bunting invited Grady Kinghorn forward. Kinghorn stated he agrees with the explanation by Weiss. He stated we finally got approval from Dayton/Maple Grove, and will use it as an insurance policy and hopes he can work with the City to make the necessary improvements to get water from Rogers. Kinghorn commented that he has been receiving calls from parties interested in his other property.
