Action Requested:                     

The Northfield City Council considers a Resolution to accept the donation of a seating area, bike racks and bike repair station from Aurora Pharmaceutical along ECRT.

 

Summary Report:

Dr. Strobel, Aurora Pharmaceutical would like to make this donation to compliment the trail in this area.  Aurora Pharmaceutical employees along with the users of the ECRT can use and enjoy this area of the trail behind the Aurora property. The Park and Recreation Advisory Board recommended accepting this donation at the August 19, 2021 Park Board meeting.  The project has been completed and this will complete the project and donation acceptance.

A resolution accepting the gift and the donor’s terms must receive an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members of the council.
