RE: Proposed Amendment No. 4 to Water Service Contract with City of Eastpointe


Upon recommendation of Randal Brown, General Counsel, the Board of Directors ("Board") of the Great Lakes Water Authority ("GLWA"), authorizes the Interim Chief Executive Officer ("ICEO") to execute Amendment No. 4 to the 30-year water service contract with City of Eastpointe; and authorizes the ICEO to take such other action as may be necessary to accomplish the intent of this vote.

Exhibit A is not attached for homeland security reasons.
