See Article 3.1 of the existing Interlocal Agreement in this regard. The MUUC has decided to pursue renewal of the Interlocal Agreement to continue our ‘work until 2010. The paperwork to effectuate this for every municipality and others is attached herewith, Attached below, please find: First Amendment Document First Amendment Signature Pages Palm Beach Resolution No. 02-09 Approving the Interlocal Agreement for use as a model, ifneeded. ‘The original MUUC Interlocal Agreement for your reference, if needed. Ifa signature page does not exist for your municipality the document has been provided in an amendable format that allows you to insert the name of your municipality where needed. These documents were prepared by Schef ‘Wright and were approved by the Palm Beach Town Attomey for legal form and sufficiency. Please have the same reviewed by your own legal counsel before proceeding. I wll use the same at the Town's January 13 Town Couneil meeting to have the Town's participation extended. On behalf ofthe MUUC, | am asking each of you to do the same thing as soon as possible. know that money is tight and will probably get tighter in fiscal 2010, but I want to point out something that is very important to highlight when taking this before your elected officials. Article 7.2 allows each party to the Agreement o participate or not participate in future funding activities. Funding participation has been and always will be optional. 1 ‘would rather your community continue to be a MUUC participant and not pay any future assessments than to not renew the Agreement out of current or future funding concerns. Remember, there is strength in numbers. One of the first questions I am asked when I go before FPL, the press or other parties is *how many participants does the MUUC have? They always want to know. Please sign up again even if you have funding concerns. We will finalize the current underground issues with FPL. very soon. Remember, your community is only one hurricane away from undergrounding becoming a "front burner" issue again. It is always good to be able to show the public you have been doing your best, in spite of funding problems to remain proactive on this issue that is important to so many people in your city and across all of Florida. Ifyou have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. Thanks for ‘your continued support. ‘Thomas G. Bradford Deputy Town Manager Town of Palm Beach 360 South County Road P.O.
