Amending Section 7.01C, regarding the powers and duties of the City Manager, adds the following language (which will become items 7 and 8):
-- Execute all contracts and related instruments as provided in the procurement policy.
-- Execute on behalf of the city, standard form documents, including but not limited to deeds, releases of liens, rental agreements, easements, right-of-way agreements, joint use agreements, and other similar documents, under the following conditions:
