Re: Land Acquisition .e '
I believe that we could get the most mileage for the least cost
if we put C. L. Knight of Knight Appraisal Service, Inc., on a
I propose that this retainer include setting a regular time each
month for a conference on a general and/or specific land
acquisition problems. The conference would be held between
Charley, Fritz Musselmann, myself and whomever else we schedule
for that purpose.
I anticipate that Charley would devote two days a month in
preparing for these conferences, attending these conferences and
follow up work at a cost of $500.00 per day.
I believe this is especially important at the present time in
light of all the conversation about proper procedures for land
acquisition. It will enable us to make the most prudent use of
our land acquisition funds and to document these in such a way
that they would be above question. The timing of these meetings
would be such that we could make regular monthly reports to the
Governing Board and to the Basin Boards as appropriate.
Since ely yours,
M. Bla n
