C.    An Obsolete Property Rehabilitation District in which the application property is located
      was established after hearing on August 14, 2007, being the same date that the district
      was established.

D.    The taxable value of the property proposed to be exempt, plus the aggregate taxable value
      of properties already exempted under PA 146 of2000 and under PA 198 of 1974, does
      not exceed five percent (5%) of the total taxable value of the City of Muskegon.

E.    In the event it is determined that the said taxable values do exceed five percent (5%), the
      City Commission determines further that the said excedence will not have the effect of
      substantially impeding the operation of the City of Muskegon or impairing the financial
      soundness of any affected taxing units.

F.     This resolution of approval is considered by the City Commission on August 14, 2007,
       after a public hearing as provided in Section 4(2) of PA 146 of 2000. The hearing was
       held on this date.

G.     The applicant, Jack McPherson, 585 W Clay, is not delinquent any taxes related to the
       facility.

H.     The exemption to be granted by this resolution is for six (6) years.

I.     The City Commission finds that the property for which the Obsolete Property
       Rehabilitation Exemption Certificate is sought is obsolete property within the meaning of
       Section 2(h) of Public Act 146 of2000 in that the property, which is commercial, is
       functionally obsolete. The City has received from the applicant all the items required by
       Section 9 of the application form, being the general description of the obsolete facility, a
       general description of the proposed use, a description of the general nature and extent of
        the rehabilitation to be undertaken, a descriptive list of fixed building equipment that will
        be part of the rehabilitated facility, a time schedule for undertaking and complete the
        rehabilitation, and statement of the economic advantages expected from the exemption.

J.      Commencement of the rehabilitation has not occurred before the establishment of the
        district.

K.      The application relates to a rehabilitation program that when completed will constitute a
        rehabilitated within the meaning of PA 146 of2000 and will be situated within the
        Obsolete Property Rehabilitation District established by the City under PA 146 of 2000.

L.      Completion of the rehabilitated facility is calculated to and will, at the time of the
        issuance of the Certificate, have the reasonable likelihood to increase commercial activity
        and create employment; it will revitalize an urban area. The rehabilitation will include
        improvements aggregating more than ten percent (10%) of the true cash value of the
        property at the commencement of the rehabilitation.

M.      The City Commission determines that the applicant shall have twelve (12) months to
        complete the rehabilitation. It shall be completed by August 14, 2008, or one year after
        the Certificate is issued, whichever occurs later.

N.      That notice pursuant to statute has been timely given to the applicant, the assessor for the
        City of Muskegon, representatives of the affected taxing units and the general public.

        NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COMMISSION RESOLVES:

1.      Based upon the statements set forth in, and incorporating the recitals to this resolution,
        the City Commission hereby approves the application filed by Jack McPherson, 585 W
        Clay, for an Obsolete Property Rehabilitation Exemption Certificate, to be effective for a
        period of six (6) years;

2.      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution of approval relates to the property set
        forth in Attachment A, the legal description containing the facilities to be improved;

3.      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that, as further condition of this approval, the applicant
        shall comply with the representations and conditions set forth in the recitals above and in
        the application material submitted to the City.

This resolution passed.

HEARING EITHER IN WRITING OR BY AGENT, OR IN WRITING BEFORE OR AT THE HEARING,

                                                  Costs

The final projected cost of the street improvement portion of the project is $387,500.00 of which
$73,799.36 will be paid by special assessment. If the special assessment is confirmed, your property will
be assessed$ 391.68 based on 12.24 feet assessable front footage at $32.00 per assessable foot for
the street improvements. In addition, you will be assessed $0.00 for driveway approach and/or sidewalk
improvements made to your property for a total special assessment cost of$ 391.68 Following are the
terms of the special assessment:

The total assessment of$ 391.68 may be paid in full any time by the due date of October 15, 2007
without interest being charged. After this date, interest will be charged at the annual rate of 5% on the
remaining balance. Assessments also may be paid over a ten-year period in ten equal principal
installments of$ 39.17 (plus accrued interest). If you pay your assessment in installments, your annual
installment (plus accrued interest) will be included as a separate item on your property tax bill each year.
Therefore, if you pay your property taxes through a mortgage escrow agent, you should notify them of this
charge. Should you wish to avoid having the annual Installment placed on the property tax bill by
making a separate payment or to pay the total balance due, please contact the Treasurer's office
at (231) 724-6720.
The total assessment may be paid in full any time prior to the due date shown above
without interest being charged. After this date, interest will be charged at the rate
shown above on the outstanding balance. Assessments also may be paid over a ten
year period in ten equal principal installments. If you pay your assessment in
installments, your annual installment (including interest) will be included as a separate
item on your property tax bill each year. Therefore, if you pay your property taxes
through a mortgage escrow agent, you should notify them of this change. Early
payments may be made at any time and are encouraged.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF THE ASSESSMENT IS NOT CONFIRMED AT THE PUBLIC
HEARING YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED. IF THE ASSESSMENT IS CONFIRMED, THIS
LETTER WILL REPRESENT YOUR INITIAL BILLING IF YOU WISH TO PAY IN FULL
PRIOR TO THE DUE DATE AND AVOID INTEREST COSTS. OTHERWISE, YOU
WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE BILLED ON AN INSTALLMENT BASIS WITH THE FIRST
INSTALLMENT SHOWN ON YOUR NEXT PROPERTY TAX BILL

If you have any specific questions about the work done please call the Engineering
Department at 231- 724-6707 before the hearing date.
