Resolution Authorizing Board Execution of Easement

Special Elector Meeting Resolution Authorizing Board Officer execution of documents to encumber school district property with public access easement for vehicular ingress and egress. The entire text of the resolution is attached to the permanent record of these minutes. Chairman Baumann read the entire resolution. Gwen Kuchevar, school district attorney, was introduced and provided a brief history of the circumstances leading up to the presentation of the Resolution. Under consideration is the conveyance to the City of River Falls an easement for the purpose of public access to the public alley adjacent to the District's property during those times on school days when the alley's direct access to Division Street is prohibited or obstructed as described in the Easement.
Attorney Gwen Kuchevar explained the desired outcomes and discussed the diagrams on Exhibits A which were attached to a copy of the Resolution.
