Date:          May 1, 2006
Re:            Contract Renewal with Digital Spectrum Enterprises (DSE)

SUMMARY OF REVIEW

To authorize the Mayor to sign a two-year contract (with the option to renew for a third)
with Digital Spectrum Enterprise. Necessary discussion and follow-up has been pursued
with the City Commission regarding this issue. The attached Contract has been updated
accordingly.

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

None.

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED:

None.

STAFF/COMMITTEE ACTION:

This issue was discussed at the Commission Work session on April!O, 2006 and the
Commission concurred with staff recommendation as outlined.
                                     MEMORANDUM

To:             Mayor Warmington and City Commissioners
From:           Lee J. Slaughter, Acting City Manager
Date:           April 4, 2006
Re:             Digital Spectrum Enterprises (DSE) Annual Report

Attached please find DSE's Annual Report to the City as required by the contract. The
contract with DSE is a one-year contract which expires May 31,2006. The one year trial
period was successful and without insurmountable challenges. I am supportive of DSE' s
request to renew the contract for a more extended period of time. This item is on your
April 10, 2006 work session agenda for discussion and further direction.

Summary Review and Comments -- DSE Annual Report

Contract Duration: Ms. Bradsburg is requesting a three-year contract. Staff recommends
entering into a two-year contract with the option to renew for another year.

Possible Challenge from Comcast: staff does not share Ms. Bradsburg assertion that
threats fi·om Comcast towards DSE might be non-existence.

Current Franchise Agreement with Comcast: The Agreement is for 25-year. It was
signed 12/8/87 and the License issued 8/2/88. Technically, the Agreement expires in
2012 and not 2014 as indicated in the report.

Commercial Advertising: Ms. Bradsburg is requesting permission from the City for DSE
to carry Commercial Advertising. Staff does not recommend granting this request. We
are confident that DSE can continue to fimction effectively with the use of non-
commercial advertising.

Financial Reporting: The current contract calls for DSE to provide an armual report prior
to April 15. Ms. Bradsburg would like for the date to be set at June 15. Staff
recommends April 301h as the new due date. Due to this recommended change, it is
further recommended that the contract is effective July 1 --this will allow for the
recommended 60-day contract renewal period as advised by the City Attorney and
supported by other PEG Channel agreements.

Please feel free to call if you have questions.

Thank you.

 Re:               Agreement with Harbor Unitarian Universalist Congregation to Operate at the
                   Farmers Market.

Attached is a slightly revised version of the document in your agenda packet. No major changes
have been made. The church asked to add a few other items to the goods they are permitted to
sell and also for the contract to reflect that they will be using Propane to heat water to make
coffee and tea. Staff supports their requests.

Thank you.

A.      The Company has applied to City for the establishment of an industrial
development district or industrial rehabilitation district pursuant to the provisions of Act
198 of the Public Acts of 1974, as amended, which act requires a contract between the
City and the Company to be agreed and submitted with the Company's subsequent
anticipated application for an industrial facilities exemption certificate.

B.        That in addition to the statutory requirement, the City has determined that it is in
the best interests of the taxpayers, property owners and residents of the City that this
Agreement be approved and executed prior to the establishment of the requested district,
and the City deems this Contract, together with the conditions set forth in the said Act to
constitute a necessary element in the City's determination whether or not to create the
district.

which it believes qualifies for the process of establishing the district and the application
for industrial facilities exemption certificate.

the district based upon the potential for the production of permanent jobs, the
continuation, stabilization or increase of economic activity, planning and zoning
considerations and the City's general plan and intentions regarding economic
development. In addition to the City policy considerations and predictions that the
Company's proposed district and certificate benefit the community in those ways, the
City has further determined that the contractual commitments made by the Company to
thereby assist, the community shall be binding on the Company and necessary to continue
the tax exemption made possible by the certificate.

       have the burden of supplying, to the City's satisfaction, complete and



                                                                                     Page 3
       convincing documentation supporting and justizying reductions in
       investment, failures to attain affirmative action goals or job losses, such as,
       without limitation, written evidence of lost contracts, accounting information
       showing reduced revenues due to the loss of business, (not dne to diversion of
       production to affiliate companies or divisions of the company), production
       records showing reduced quantities over significant periods of time, and such
       other information required by the City to support the Company's claim that
       the failure to invest, failure to achieve affirmative action goals, or loss of jobs
       should not form the basis for a finding of default.


       3.5 The bankruptcy or insolvency of the Company.

       3.6 The fuilure to pay any and all taxes and assessments levied on the
       Company's property or any other taxes, local, state or federal, including but not
       limited to City income taxes and the withholding of said City income taxes from
       employees as required by the City Income Tax Ordinance.

       3. 7 The performance or omission of any act which would lead to revocation
       under MCLA 207.565, being §15 of the Act.

       3.8 The violation of any provisions, promises, commitments, considerations or
       covenants of this Agreement.

4. REMEDIES ON DEFAULT. In the event of any of the above defaults the City
shall have the following remedies which it may invoke without notice, except as may be
reasonably required by the Company's rights to due process:

       4.1 In the event of closing as determined after investigation of the facts and a
       public hearing, the Company shall be inunediately liable for penalties to be paid
       f01thwith to the city as determined as follows:

              4.1.1 The Company shall pay to the City for prorata distribution to the
              taxing units experiencing the abatement, an amount equal to the difference
              between the industrial facilities tax which it has paid, and the total
              property taxes to the relevant taxing units which it would have paid, given
              its installations of improvements and equipment, during the years for
              which the certificate was in effect.

              4.1.2 Immediate Revocation. The Company hereby consents to
              revocation to the IFT certificate before the State Tax Commission, without
              hearing, and the City shall submit a copy of this Agreement to the State
              Tax Commission in counection with its revocation procedure, giving
              notice that the default has occurred and inunediate revocation should
              occur.




                                                                                   Page4
     4.2 In the event the improvements and equipment have not been installed before
     the two (2) year period, in addition to the revocation procedures before the State
     Tax Commission, the abatement should immediately be reduced by the City
     proportionately, and any installations which have not been fmished at the end of
     said two (2) year period shall not be eligible for the abatement thereafter and shall
     be placed on the regular tax roll.

     4.3 Failure to Expend the Funds Represented. In the event, (whether or not the
     installations have been completed), the Company has not expended the funds it
     has represented on its application that it would invest for the installation of
     equipment, the abatement shall be reduced prorata, and any remaining value of
     equipment shall be placed on the regular tax roll, unless the company can show,
     through receipts, etc. that the cost of the eqnipment was actually less than the
     amount estimated by the company (i.e., the same equipment was purchased
     as listed in the IFT application, but the bids came in less then expected).

     4.4 Job Creation and Retention. In the event the promised number of jobs have
     not been created or retained at the end of the two (2) years after the grant of the
     certificate by the State Tax Commission, the abatement shall be proportionately
     reduced, unless the company can show that the loss of jobs, or inability to hire
     as many people as expected, is due to circumstances beyond the control of the
     company (such as an economic downturn).

     4.5 Affirmative Action Goals. In the event, after one (1) year from the grant of
     the certificate by the State Tax Commission, the affrrmative action goals of the
     City for additional jobs have not been met on a prorata basis, the abatement shall
     be revoked.

     4.6 For other violations of this Agreement or for actions or omissions by the
     Company amounting to grounds for revocation by statue, the City shall
     recommend to the State Tax Commission immediate revocation of the certificate.

     4. 7 Special Assessment. For any amount due to be paid to the City, under this
     Section 4, the Company consents that the City shall have a personal action against
     the Company for the said amount, and in addition, cumulatively, and not by
     election, the City shall have a special assessment lien on all the property of the
     Company personal and real, located in the City, for the collection of the amounts
     due as and in the marmer of property taxes and in such case the collection of the
     said special assessment shall be accomplished by addition by the City to the
     Company's property tax statement regularly rendered.

5. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance
with the laws of the State of Michigan applicable to contracts made and to be
performed within the State of Michigan.

               5.     The PROJECT COST shall be met in part by contributions from the Federal High
       Priority Project Program- SAFETEA LU.

               The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for
       Users (SAFETEA-LU), Subtitle G - High Priority Projects, authorizes High Priority Project
       funding and establishes the maximum amount of funding for the PROJECT and associated
       phases under SAFETEA-LU Number 320 to be $2,320,000. It is understood that this amount
       may be subject to obligational authority limitation and after applying that limitation only an
       estimated $1,983,600 may be available for the PROJECT and associated phases. It is further
       understood that according to SAFETEA-LU, funds for the PROJECT and associated phases are
       to be allocated over a period of 5 years.

               In the course of the first four years of this program, the DEPARTMENT may make 100
       percent of the annual allocation available to the PROJECT with the understanding that in the
       final year adjustments will have to be made for obligational authority limitations which may
       reduce the amount of funding available for the PROJECT and associated phases.

               Federal High Priority Project- SAFETEA LU Funds shall be applied to the eligible items
       of the PROJECT COST at the established Federal participation ratio equal to 80 percent up to an
       amount not to exceed $960,000. In accordance with the above, the current available Federal
       High Priority Project- SAFETEA LU Funds for this PROJECT are established to be $796,803,
       consisting of allocations for fiscal years 2005 and 2006. The balance of the PROJECT COST,
       after deduction of Federal Funds, shall be charged to and paid by the REQUESTING PARTY in
       the manner and at the times hereinafter set forth. The PROJECT COST and the cost
       participation are estimated to be as follows:

                                                                  Federal High Priority Project   REQUESTING

              Contingent upon availability of Federal Funds and Federal approval, Federal High
      Priority Project - SAFETEA LU Funds, for future fiscal years, may be applied to the cost
      incurred as advance construction, in an amount such that the Federal Funds equal a participation
      ratio of 80 percent, subject to the obligational authority limit for the Federal High Priority Project
      - SAFETEA LU Funds for this PROJECT.

           Upon completion and final accounting of this PROJECT and associated phases under
      SAFETEA - LU Number 320, Federal High Priority Project - SAFETEA LU Funds may be



      12/01105 HPSL.FOR           4/19/06               6
adjusted among all phases such that the total Federal High Priority- SAFETEA LU Funds does
not exceed $2,230,000 subject to the obligational authority limit.

       Any items of PROJECT COST not reimbursed by Federal Funds shall be the sole

REQUESTING PARTY under the terms of this contract shall be prepared and submitted to the
DEPARTMENT by the REQUESTING PARTY for reimbursement with Federal Funds in
accordance with the procedures of the DEPARTMENT. Progress billings may be submitted bi-
monthly during the time work is being performed provided, however, that no bill of a lesser
amount than $1,000.00 shall be. submitted unless it is a final or end of fiscal year billing. All
billings shall be labeled either "Progress Bill Number                " or "Final Billing". Final

12/01105 HPSL.FOR        4/19/06               7
        Reimbursement of any cost pursuant to this contract shall not constitute a final
determination by the DEPARTMENT of the allowability of such cost and shall not constitute a
waiver by DEPARTMENT of any violation of the terms of this contract committed by the
REQUESTING PARTY. Final settlement of costs shall be made upon completion of all
PROJECT work and the DEPARTMENT'S acceptance of an audit performed by a certified
public accountant in accordance with 49 CFR Part 18.26, and OMB Circular A-128, and/or final
audit by the DEPARTMENT. The REQUESTING PARTY promises to promptly repay the
DEPARTMENT for any disallowed items of cost previously disbursed by the DEPARTMENT.
The REQUESTING PARTY pledges its future receipts from the Michigan Transportation Fund

                     response and cleanup costs, and attorney fees or other related costs, arising
                     out of, under, or by reason of this Agreement, including the design of the
                     PROJECT, except claims resulting from the sole negligence or willful acts
                     or omissions of said indemnitee, its agents or employees.

       The DEPARTMENT shall not be subject to any obligations or liabilities by contractors of
the REQUESTING PARTY or their subcontractors or any other person not a party to this

12/01/05 HPSL.FOR        4/19/06               8
       It is expressly understood and agreed that the REQUESTING PARTY shall take no
action or conduct which arises either directly or indirectly out of its obligations, responsibilities,
and duties under this contract, which results in claims being asserted against or judgments being
imposed against the State of Michigan, the DEPARTMENT, and/or the Michigan State
Transportation Commission.

       In the event that the same occurs, for the purpose of this contract it will be considered as
a breach of this contract thereby giving the State of Michigan, the DEPARTMENT, and/or the
Michigan State Transportation Commission a right to seek and obtain any necessary relief or
remedy, including but not by way oflimitation, a judgment for money damages.

        12.    The REQUESTING PARTY certifies that a) it is a person under 1995 PA 71 and
is not aware of and has no reason to believe that the property is a facility as defined in MSA
13A.20101(1)(1); b) the REQUESTING PARTY further certifies that it has completed the tasks
required by MCL 324.20126 (3)(h); MSA 13A.20126(3)(h); c) it conducted a visual inspection
of property within the existing right of way on which construction is to be performed to
determine if any hazardous substances were present; and at sites on which historically were
located businesses that involved hazardous substances, it performed a reasonable investigation to
determine whether hazardous substances exist. This reasonable investigation should include, at a
minimum, contact with local, state and federal environmental agencies to determine if the site
has been identified as, or potentially as, a site containing hazardous substances; d) it did not
cause or contribute to the release or threat of release of any hazardous substance found within the
PROJECT limits.

        The REQUESTING PARTY also certifies that, in addition to reporting the presence of
any hazardous substances to the Department of Enviromnental Quality, it has advised the
DEPARTMENT of the presence of any and all hazardous substances which the REQUESTING
PARTY found within the PROJECT limits, as a result of performing the investigation and visual
inspection required herein. The REQUESTING PARTY also certifies that it has been unable to
identify any entity who may be liable for the cost of remediation. As a result, the
REQUESTING PARTY has included all estimated costs of remediation of such hazardous
substances in its estimated cost of construction of the PROJECT.

         13.   If, subsequent to execution of this contract, previously unknown hazardous
substances are discovered within the PROJECT limits, which require environmental remediation
pursuant to either state or federal law, the REQUESTING PARTY, in addition to reporting that
fact to the Department of Environmental Quality, shall immediately notifY the DEPARTMENT,
both orally and in writing of such discovery. The DEPARTMENT shall consult with the
REQUESTING PARTY to determine if it is willing to pay for the cost of remediation and, with
the FHWA, to determine the eligibility, for reimbursement, of the remediation costs. The
REQUESTING PARTY shall be charged for and shall pay all costs associated with such
remediation, including all delay costs of the contractor for the PROJECT, in the event that
remediation and delay costs are not deemed eligible by the FHWA. If the REQUESTING
PARTY refuses to participate in the cost of remediation, the DEPARTMENT shall terminate the


12/01105 HPSL.FOR         4/19/06                9
PROJECT. The parties agree that any costs or damages that the DEPARTMENT incurs as a
result of such termination shall be considered a PROJECT COST.

        14.     If federal and/or state funds administered by the DEPARTMENT are used to pay
the cost of remediating any hazardous substances discovered after the execution of this contract
and if there is a reasonable likelihood of recovery, the REQUESTING PARTY, in cooperation
with the Department of Environmental Quality and the DEPARTMENT, shall make a diligent
effort to recover such costs from all other possible entities. If recovery is made, the
DEPARTMENT shall be reimbursed from such recovery for the proportionate share of the
amount paid by the FHWA and/or the DEPARTMENT and the DEPARTMENT shall credit
such sums to the appropriate funding source.

      15.     The DEPARTMENT'S sole reason for entering into this contract is to enable the
REQUESTING PARTY to obtain and use funds provided by the Federal Highway
Administration pursuant to Title 23 of the United States Code.

         Any and all approvals of, reviews of, and recommendations regarding contracts,
agreements, permits, plans, specifications, or documents, of any nature, or any inspections of
work by the DEPARTMENT and its agents pursuant to the terms of this contract are done to
assist the REQUESTING PARTY in meeting program guidelines in order to qualify for available
funds. Such approvals, reviews, inspections and recommendations by the DEPARTMENT and
its agents shall not relieve the REQUESTING PARTY and the local agencies, as applicable, of
their ultimate control and shall not be construed as a warranty of their propriety or that the
DEPARTMENT and its agents is assuming any liability, control or jurisdiction.

        The providing of recommendations or advice by the DEPARTMENT and its agents does
not relieve the REQUESTING PARTY and the local agencies, as applicable of their exclusive
jurisdiction of the highway and responsibility under MCL 691.1402, MSA 3.996(102).

     When providing approvals, reviews and recommendations under this contract, the
DEPARTMENT and its agents is performing a goverrunental function, as that term is defined in
MCL 691.1401; MSA 3.996(101), which is incidental to the completion ofthe PROJECT.

         16.    The DEPARTMENT, by executing this contract, and rendering services pursuant
to tllis contract, has not and does not assume jurisdiction of the highway, described as the
PROJECT for purposes of MCL 691.1402; MSA 3.996(102). Exclusive jurisdiction of such
highway for the purposes of MCL 691.1402; MSA 3.996(102) rests with the REQUESTING
PARTY and other local agencies having respective jurisdiction.

         17.    The REQUESTING PARTY agrees that the costs reported to the DEPARTMENT
for this contract will represent only those items that are properly chargeable in accordance with
this contract. The REQUESTING PARTY also certifies that it has read the contract terms and
has made itself aware of the applicable laws, regulations, and terms of this contract that apply to
the reporting of costs incurred under the terms of this contract.

             has expired.

             The DEPARTMENT, or its representative, may inspect, copy, or audit the
             RECORDS at any reasonable time after giving reasonable notice.

             If any part of the work is subcontracted, the REQUESTING PARTY shall assure
             compliance with the above for all subcontracted work.

             In the event that an audit performed by or on behalf of the DEPARTMENT
             indicates an adjustment to the costs repmied under this contract, or questions the
             allowability of an item of expense, the DEPARTMENT shall promptly submit to
             the REQUESTING PARTY, a Notice ofAudit Results and a copy of the audit
             report which may supplement or modify any tentative findings verbally
             communicated to the REQUESTING PARTY at the completion of an audit.

             Within sixty (60) days after the date of the Notice of Audit Results, the
             REQUESTING PARTY shall: (a) respond in writing to the responsible Bureau or
             the DEPARTMENT indicating whether or not it concurs with the audit report, (b)
             clearly explain the nature and basis for any disagreement as to a disallowed item
             of expense and, (c) submit to the DEPARTMENT a written explanation as to any
             questioned or no opinion expressed item of expense, hereinafter referred to as the
             "RESPONSE". The RESPONSE shall be clearly stated and provide any
             supporting documentation necessary to resolve any disagreement or questioned or
             no opinion expressed item of expense. Where the documentation is voluminous,
             the REQUESTING PARTY may supply appropriate excerpts and make alternate


03-15-93                                      7
           arrangements to conveniently and reasonably make that documentation available
           for review by the DEPARTMENT. The RESPONSE shall refer to and apply the
           language of the contract. The REQUESTING PARTY agrees that failure to
           submit a RESPONSE within the sixty (60) day period constitutes agreement with
           any disallowance of an item of expense and authorizes the DEPARTMENT to
           finally disallow any items of questioned or no opinion expressed cost.

           The DEPARTMENT shall make its decision with regard to any Notice of Audit
           Results and RESPONSE within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of
           the Notice of Audit Results. If the DEPARTMENT determines that an
           overpayment has been made to the REQUESTING PARTY, the REQUESTING
           PARTY shall repay that amount to the DEPARTMENT or reach agreement with
           the DEPARTMENT on a repayment schedule within thirty (30) days after the
           date of an invoice from the DEPARTMENT. If the REQUESTING PARTY fails
           to repay the overpayment or reach agreement with the DEPARTMENT on a
           repayment schedule within the thirty (30) day period, the REQUESTING PARTY
           agrees that the DEPARTMENT shall deduct all or a portion of the overpayment
           from any funds then or thereafter payable by the DEPARTMENT to the
           REQUESTING PARTY under this contract or any other agreement, or payable to
           the REQUESTING PARTY under the terms of 1951 PA 51, as applicable.
           Interest will be assessed on any partial payments or repayment schedules based on
           the unpaid balance at the end of each month until the balance is paid in full. The
           assessment of interest will begin thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice.
           The rate of interest will be based on the Michigan Department of Treasury
           common cash funds interest earnings. The rate of interest will be reviewed
           annually by the DEPARTMENT and adjusted as necessary based on the Michigan
           Department of Treasury common cash funds interest earnings.                    The
           REQUESTING PARTY expressly consents to this withholding or offsetting of
           funds under those circumstances, reserving the right to file a lawsuit in the Court
           of Claims to contest the DEPARTMENT'S decision only as to any item of
           expense the disallowance of which was disputed by the REQUESTING PARTY
           in a timely filed RESPONSE.

           The REQUESTING PARTY shall comply with the Single Audit Act of 1984,
           p .L. 98-502.

           The REQUESTING PARTY shall adhere to the following requirements

03-15-93                                     9
            or end of fiscal year billing. All billings shall be labeled either "Progress Bill
            Number           ",or "Final Billing".

       4.   Final billing under this contract shall be submitted in a timely manner but not later
            than six months after completion of the work. Billings for work submitted later
            than six months after completion of the work will not be paid.

       5.   Upon receipt of billings for reimbursement for work undertaken by the
            REQUESTING PARTY on projects funded with Federal monies, the
            DEPARTMENT will act as billing agent for the REQUESTING PARTY,
            consolidating said billings with those for its own force account work and
            presenting these consolidated billings to the FHWA for payment. Upon receipt of
            reimbursement from the FHWA, the DEPARTMENT will promptly forward to
            the REQUESTING PARTY its share of said reimbursement.

B.    Payment of Contracted and DEPARTMENT Costs:

       I.   As work on the PROJECT commences, the initial payments for contracted work
            and/or costs incurred by the DEPARTMENT will be made from the working
            capital deposit. Receipt of progress payments of Federal funds, and where
            applicable, State Critical Bridge funds, will be used to replenish the working
            capital deposit. The REQUESTING PARTY shall make prompt payments of its
            share of the contracted and/or DEPARTMENT incurred portion of the PROJECT
            COST upon receipt of progress billings from the DEPARTMENT. Progress
            billings will be based upon the REQUESTING PARTY'S share of the actual costs
            incurred as work on the PROJECT progresses and will be submitted, as required,
            until it is determined by the DEPARTMENT that there is sufficient available
            working capital to meet the remaining anticipated PROJECT COSTS. All
            progress payments will be made within thirty (30) days of receipt of billings. No
            monthly billing of a lesser amount than $1,000.00 will be made unless it is a final
            or end of fiscal year billing. Should the DEPARTMENT determine that the
            available working capital exceeds the remaining anticipated PROJECT COSTS,
            the DEPARTMENT may reimburse the REQUESTING PARTY such excess.
            Upon completion of the PROJECT, payment of all PROJECT COSTS, receipt of
            all applicable monies from the FHWA, and completion of necessary audits, the
            REQUESTING PARTY will be reimbursed the balance of its deposit.

       2.     In the event that the bid, plus contingencies, for the contracted, and/or the
              DEPARTMENT incurred p01tion of the PROJECT work exceeds the estimated
              cost therefor as established by this contract, the REQUESTING PARTY may be
              advised and billed for the additional amount of its share.

C.     General Conditions:

       I.     The DEPARTMENT, in accordance with its procedures in existence and covering
              the time period involved, shall make payment for interest earned on the balance of
              working capital deposits for all projects on account with the DEPARTMENT.
              The REQUESTING PARTY in accordance with DEPARTMENT procedures in
              existence and covering the time period involved, shall make payment for interest
              owed on any deficit balance of working capital deposits for all projects on
              account with the DEPARTMENT. This payment or billing is processed on an
              annual basis corresponding to the State of Michigan fiscal year. Upon receipt of
              billing for interest incurred, the REQUESTING PARTY promises and shall
              promptly pay the DEPARTMENT said amount.

       2.    Pursuant to the authority granted by law, the REQUESTING PARTY hereby
             irrevocably pledges a sufficient amount of funds received by it from the Michigan
             Transportation Fund to meet its obligations as specified in PART I and PART II.
             If the REQUESTING PARTY shall fail to make any of its required payments
             when due, as specified herein, the DEPARTMENT shall immediately notify the
             REQUESTING PARTY and the State Treasurer of the State of Michigan or such
             other state officer or agency having charge and control over disbursement of the
             Michigan Transportation Fund, pursuant to law, of the fact of such default and the
             amount thereof, and, if such default is not cured by payment within ten (I 0) days,
             said State Treasurer or other state officer or agency is then authorized and
             directed to withhold from the first of such monies thereafter allocated by law to
             the REQUESTING PARTY from the Michigan Transportation Fund sufficient
             monies to remove the default, and to credit the REQUESTING PARTY with
             payment thereof, and to notify the REQUESTING PARTY in writing of such fact.

      3.     Upon completion of all work under this contract and final audit by the
             DEPARTMENT or the FHWA, the REQUESTING PARTY promises to
             promptly repay the DEPARTMENT for any disallowed items of costs previously
             disbursed by the DEPARTMENT. The REQUESTING PARTY pledges its
             future receipts from the Michigan Transportation Fund for repayment of all
             disallowed items and, upon failure to make repayment for any disallowed items
             within ninety (90) days of demand made by the DEPARTMENT, the
             DEPARTMENT is hereby authorized to withhold an equal amount from the
             REQUESTING PARTY'S share of any future distribution of Michigan
             Transportation Funds in settlement of said claim.



03-15-93                                     II
       4.   The DEPARTMENT shall maintain and keep accurate records and accounts
            relative to the cost of the PROJECT and upon completion of the PROJECT,
            payment of all items of PROJECT COST, receipt of all Federal Aid, if any, and
            completion of final audit by the DEPARTMENT and if applicable, by the FHWA,
            shall make final accounting to the REQUESTING PARTY. The final PROJECT
            accounting will not include interest earned or charged on working capital
            deposited for the PROJECT which will be accounted for separately at the close of
            the State of Michigan fiscal year and as set forth in Section C( 1).

       5.   The costs of engineering and other services performed on those projects involving
            specific program funds and one hundred percent ( 100%) local funds will be
            apportioned to the respective portions of that project in the same ratio as the
            actual direct construction costs unless otherwise specified in PART I.

                                        SECTION IV

                             MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION


A.    Upon completion of construction of each part of the PROJECT, at no cost to the
      DEPARTMENT or the PROJECT, each of the parties hereto, within their respective
      jurisdictions, will make the following provisions for the maintenance and operation of the
      completed PROJECT:

       I.    All Projects:

             Properly maintain and operate each part of the project, making ample provisions
             each year for the performance of such maintenance work as may be required,
             except as qualified in paragraph 2b of this section.

      2.     Projects Financed in Part with Federal Monies:

             a.      Sign and mark each part of the PROJECT, in accordance with the current
                     Michigan Manual of Uniform Traffic control Devices, and will not install,
                     or permit to be installed, any signs, signals or markings not in
                     conformance with the standards approved by the FHWA, pursuant to 23
                     usc 109(d).
             b.      Remove, prior to completion of the PROJECT, all encroachments from the
                     roadway right-of-way within the limits of each part of the PROJECT.

                    With respect to new or existing utility installations within the right-of-way
                    of Federal Aid projects and pursuant to FAPG (23 CFR 645B):
                    Occupancy of non-limited access right-of-way may be allowed based on
                    consideration for traffic safety and necessary preservation of roadside
                    space and aesthetic quality. Longitudinal occupancy of non-limited access
                    right-of-way by private lines will require a finding of significant economic
                    hardship, the unavailability of practicable alternatives or other extenuating
                    circumstances.

             c.     Cause to be enacted, maintained and enforced, ordinances and regulations
                    for proper traffic operations in accordance with the plans of the
                    PROJECT.

             d.     Make no changes to ordinances or regulations enacted, or traffic controls
                    installed in conjunction with the PROJECT work without prior review by
                    the DEPARTMENT and approval of the FHWA, if required.



03-15-93                                      13
B.     On projects for the removal of roadside obstacles, the parties, upon completion of
       construction of each part of the PROJECT, at no cost to the PROJECT or the
       DEPARTMENT, will, within their respective jurisdictions, take such action as is
       necessary to assure that the roadway right-of-way, cleared as the PROJECT, will be
       maintained free of such obstacles.

C.     On projects for the construction of bikeways, the parties will enact no ordinances or
       regulations prohibiting the use of bicycles on the facility hereinbefore described as the
       PROJECT, and will amend any existing restrictive ordinances in this regard so as to
       allow use of this facility by bicycles. No motorized vehicles shall be permitted on such
       bikeways or walkways constructed as the PROJECT except those for maintenance
       purposes.

D.     Failure of the parties hereto to fulfill their respective responsibilities as outlined herein
       may disqualify that party from future Federal-aid participation in projects on roads or
       streets for which it has maintenance responsibility. Federal Aid may be withheld until
       such time as deficiencies in regulations have been corrected, and the improvements
       constructed as the PROJECT are brought to a satisfactory condition of maintenance.

                                         SECTION V

                   SPECIAL PROGRAM AND PROJECT CONDITIONS

A.    Those projects for which the REQUESTING PARTY has been reimbursed with Federal
      monies for the acquisition of right-of-way must be under construction by the close of the
      twentieth (20th) fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the Fl-IWA and the
      DEPARTMENT projects agreement covering that work is executed, or the
      REQUESTING PARTY may be required to repay to the DEPARTMENT, for forwarding
      to the Fl-IWA, all monies distributed as the Fl-IWA'S contribution to that right-of-way.

B.    Those projects for which the REQUESTING PARTY has been reimbursed with Federal
      monies for the performance of preliminary engineering must be under construction by the
      close of the tenth (I Oth) fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the Fl-IWA and the
      DEPARTMENT projects agreement covering that work is executed, or the
      REQUESTING PARTY may be required to repay to the DEPARTMENT, for forwarding
      to the Fl-IWA, all monies distributed as the Fl-IW A'S contribution to that preliminary
      engineering.

C.    On those projects funded with Federal monies, the REQUESTING PARTY, at no cost to
      the PROJECT or the DEPARTMENT, will provide such accident information as is
      available and such other information as may be required under the program in order to
      make the proper assessment of the safety benefits derived from the work performed as the
      PROJECT. The REQUESTING PARTY will cooperate with the DEPARTMENT in the
      development of reports and such analysis as may be required and will, when requested by
      the DEPARTMENT, forward to the DEPARTMENT, in such form as is necessary, the
      required information.

D.    In connection with the performance of PROJECT work under this contract the parties
      hereto (hereinafter in Appendix "A" referred to as the "contractor") agree to comply with
      the State of Michigan provisions for "Prohibition of Discrimination in State Contracts",
      as set forth in Appendix A, attached hereto and made a part hereof. The parties further
      covenant that they will comply with the Civil Rights Acts of 1964, being P.L. 88-352, 78
      Stat. 241, as amended, being Title 42 U.S.C. Sections 1971, 1975a-1975d, and 2000a-
      2000h-6 and the Regulations of the United States Department of Transportation (49
      C.F.R. Part 21) issued pursuant to said Act, including Appendix "B", attached hereto and
      made a part hereof, and will require similar covenants on the part of any contractor or
      subcontractor employed in the performance of this contract.

E.    The parties will carry out the applicable requirements of the DEPARTMENT'S
      Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program and 49 CFR, Part 26, including, but
      not limited to, those requirements set forth in Appendix C.

                                                APPENDIX A
                             PROHIBITION OF DISCRIMINATION IN STATE CONTRACTS

In connection with the performance of work under this contract; the contractor agrees as follows:

1.      In accordance with Act No. 453, Public Acts of 1976, the contractor hereby agrees not to discriminate against an
        employee or applicant for employment with respect to hire, tenure, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, or

        height, weight, or marital status. Further, in accordance with Act No. 220, Public Acts of 1976 as amended by Act No.
        478, Public Acts of 1980 the contractor hereby agrees not to discriminate against an employee or applicant for
        employment with respect to hire, tenure, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, or a 11atter directly or
        indirectly related to employment, because of a disability that is unrelated to the individual's ability to perform the
        duties of a particular job or position. A breach of the above covenants shall be regarded as a material breach of this
        contract.

2.      The contractor hereby agrees that any and all subcontracts to this contract, whereby a portion of the work set forth in
        this contract is to be performed, shall contain a covenant the same as hereinabove set forth in Section 1 of this
