HEADS UP FOR THE JANUARY 23, 2008, PARK BOARD MEETING

5:00 P.M. REGULAR MEETING. There will be a vote on the approval of the REVISED
Reciprocal Use Agreement between the Park Board and DeLaSalle High School

The original Reciprocal Use Agreement voted for by the Park Board in March of 2006
was not approved by the State Finance Commissioner as required and had to be
renegotiated and rewritten before he would approve it.

So during the past 22 months, there has been no effective legal agreement between
the Park Board and DeLaSalle.

Since August of 2007, the Park Board and DeLaSalle have been attempting to
renegotiate certain terms of their agreement so that it could be approved by the
State Finance Commissioner. Apparently the State Finance Commissioner has agreed to
approve the latest revision.

It is this revised Reciprocal Use Agreement between the Park Board and DeLaSalle
that will come before the Board for its approval on Wednesday.

Also on the agenda for discussion are East Phillips Park and The Board of Estimate
and Taxation.

The meeting will be broadcast live on cable channel 14 beginning at 5:00 P.M.
