 EGAL MATTERS    Update on 930 Alkire Street Easement:   Attorney Flynn and Mr. Willis discussed
with the Board the continued efforts to secure the required easement for the District to obtain
access to the sewer main that runs along the eastern property line of this property and which is
necessary to install a new manhole that is not located beneath either of the garage  structures  
that  are  located  along  the  property’s  easterly  boundary  line.   The owners of 930 Alkire
Street have retained legal counsel.   Mr. Flynn has scheduled a time to discuss the District’s
requirements with the owners’ legal counsel who is Jerry Dahl, the attorney for the City of Wheat
Ridge.  The owner of the property just to the South of 930 Alkire has consented to the District’s
surveyor accessing his property for obtaining the information necessary to prepare a new legal
description for the manhole and sewer main extension the District is requesting.

Third   Restated   and   Amended   Sewer   Service   Agreement   with   Applewood Sanitation
District:  Attorney Flynn and Director Zimmerman discussed the proposed agreement  changes  with  
the  Board.  Mr. Zimmerman  and  Mr.  Flynn  recommended preparing a draft agreement that allows
the Applewood Sanitation District to charge each  Northwest  Lakewood  customer  Applewood’s  
current  sewer  fee  of  $360/SFE. Northwest Lakewood would then be able to charge Applewood
Northwest Lakewood’s current  sewer  service  fee  in  the  amount  of  $400/SFE.   The  service  
fees  could  be changed by each District as long as they were no greater than what was charged
inside of each District’s territorial boundaries.   Each District would continue to collect the
property taxes from the properties within their boundaries that are served by the other District.  
The proposed new agreement would remain in effect for a period of 5 years and then would be subject
to extension at that time upon the same terms and conditions provided both Boards were in
agreement.  Mr. Flynn will work on a draft agreement to present to the Board at its February
meeting.

Gold’s Marketplace Development Review Agreement: Attorney Flynn discussed the deposit agreement for
$5,000.00 and the amendment to request an additional $2,500.00 for additional anticipated expenses.
  Legal counsel will revise the deposit agreement and forward it to Steve Beck for delivery to the
developer for execution.
