RE: Purchase of 687 Navahoe Detroit, MI


Upon recommendation and opinion of Randal M. Brown, General Counsel, the Board of Directors (Board) for the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA):

(1) Approves the purchase of 687Navahoe, Detroit, MI from TBJ A2, LLC; and
(2) Authorizes the Interim Chief Executive Officer to take such other action as may be necessary to accomplish the intent of this vote, including the execution of the Purchase Agreement and closing documents.

To provide the ability to safely and reliably isolate the Freud Pump Station wet well, and pump dry weather sanitary sewage to the WRRF, GLWA needs to construct an access shaft and sanitary pump station east of the Freud Sewage Pumping Station. Working with Arcadis, GLWA's consultant on this project, GLWA has identified properties that it needs to acquire adjacent to the Ashland and Fox Creek interceptors. One property adjacent to the interceptors and near the Freud Sewage Pumping Station is owned by TBJ A2, LLC. GLWA inquired to purchase the property.
TBJ A2, LLC is willing to sell the property to GLWA for $11,500.00 plus closing costs. 687 Navahoe is vacant land. Additional land acquisitions are necessary to support the construction of the access shaft.

There are sufficient funds allocated for the access shaft construction in the CIP to acquire the land.
This matter was presented to the Legal Committee on February 23, 2022.
This request does not impact the Shared Services Agreement.
