The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development has forwarded the official loan agreement for $3,000,000 to be used for the dormitory at Oakland University. The following resolution was prepared in accordance with Federal requirements and approved by the University attorney:

RESOLUTION APPROVING AND PROVIDING FOR THE EXECUTION OF A LOAN AGREEMENT, AND NUMBERED CONTRACT NO. H(402)-2944, BY AND BETWEEN THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University, having charge and management of Oakland University, as follows:

SECTION 1. The pending Loan Agreement and numbered contract No. H(402)-2944, and relating to the erection on the campus of Oakland University, a public educational institution of higher learning located in Rochester, Michigan, of a new dormitory to provide housing and appurtenant facilities for approximately 676 students and 2 supervisors, called the "Project" in said Loan Agreement, by and between the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University having charge and management of Oakland University and the United States of America, is hereby in all respects approved.

SECTION 2. The Vice President for Business and Finance of Michigan State University is hereby authorized and directed to execute the said Loan Agreement in two counterparts on behalf of the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University and the Secretary of the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University is hereby authorized and directed to impress and attest the official seal of Michigan State University on each such counterpart and to forward two such counterparts to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, together with such other documents relative to the approval and execution of such counterparts and to this Resolution as may be required by the Government.

On motion by Mr. White, seconded by Mr. Merriman, it was voted to approve the above resolution.

The Consumers Power Company will install a new gas regulator station to service the Oakland campus and adjacent area, and request a deed for a plot 200 feet by 200 feet, with the understanding that if this ever ceases to be used for the original purpose the title will revert to the University. The Power Company has indicated a willingness to pay $10,000 as consideration for the regulator station. It is recommended that the Board authorize Mr. May and Mr. Carr to negotiate a contract covering this deed.

On motion by Mr. Merriman, seconded by Mr. Harlan, it was voted to authorize Chancellor Varner and the University attorney to complete arrangements with the Consumers Power Company looking toward a long-term lease on this proposed site with title to revert to the University at the end of 99 years or earlier in the event that the land is not used for this stated purpose.

Mr. White voted "no".

Communication from Chancellor Varner:

The Board authorized on May 18 that Oakland University make a contract with McFadden Corp. in the amount of $23,980 for the installation of bleachers in the west half of the gymnasium in the Intramural Building. However, because the Board of Trustees at its May meeting authorized the completion of the Intramural Building, it has been decided to install bleachers on the east wall of the gymnasium as well as the west wall. In talking with our architect, O'Dell, Hewlett and Luckembach, it seems wisest to ask the McFadden Corp. to do both the east and west bleacher sections rather than open up the bidding process again based on our previous difficulty in getting bidders to bid on the west section. As a result of this recommendation, the McFadden Corporation has been contacted, and they are willing to follow the same specifications and install bleachers on both ends of the gymnasium for a total cost of $46,510. This is a reduction of $1,450 from the original bid for doubling the order.

I would like to recommend that the Board authorize Oakland University to place the bleacher order with the McFadden Company for $46,510 and include it in the financing package arranged for the Intramural Building construction as we discussed previously.
