RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING A THREE-YEAR AGREEMENT WITH THE DULUTH CROSS COUNTRY SKI CLUB TO ASSIST THE CITY WITH THE PRESERVATION, MAINTENANCE, AND ENHANCEMENT OF CROSS COUNTRY SKI TRAILS, AT NO COST TO THE CITY.

 

Body

CITY PROPOSAL:

RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are hereby authorized to enter into a three-year agreement, substantially in the form attached as Exhibit 1, with the Duluth Cross Country Ski Club to assist the city with the preservation, maintenance, and enhancement of cross country ski trails, at no cost to the city.

 

Statement of Purpose

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes a three-year agreement with the Duluth Cross Country Ski Club (“DXC”)to assist the city with the preservation, maintenance, and enhancement of cross country ski trails, at no cost to the city.  Not including the Nordic ski trails at Spirit Mountain, the City maintains and grooms a total of 42 kilometers of cross country ski trails in the following locations: Lester Park, Chester Park, Hartley Park, Piedmont, and Magney Snively.

 

Under the terms of the agreement, DXC will clear brush, trees and other vegetation using manual hand tools, chainsaws, brush saws, wood chipper, weed wackers, and walk behind brush mowers.  DXC may not remove trees with a diameter of six inches or more and may not remove Standing maple, oak, pine, cedar, and all other tree species protected under the City’s Uniform Development Chapter (regardless of diameter).  DXC must provide personal protective equipment necessary or adequate for all activities performed in connection with this agreement.  Under certain terms and conditions, DXC may use all-terrain vehicles when such use is associated with trail-clearing activities.
