Resolution No. 58-2017. A Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into an agreement by and 
between the City of Monroe and The Kleingers Group for professional surveying services to proceed 
with the Great Miami Trail Alignment.

Background. City Council previously approved funding for construction drawings regarding the Great 
Miami River which has been successful in locating the best and most efficient route for the future 
trail. The intent of the trail is to stay on public properties as much as possible in order to 
reduce cost associated with property acquisition. As Council may recall, the majority of the trail 
is located closely or on Miami Conservancy District, Butler County MetroParks, and City of Monroe 
(Americana) property. However, due to old, uncertain, and inaccurate property lines regarding the 
former Miami & Erie Canal ,B & O Railroad, Texas Eastern Pipeline as well other individual property 
owners, a survey to determine whether the trail is solidly on public property (i.e. Miami 
Conservancy District, Metro Parks, and City of Monroe) is necessary to proceed. The Kleingers Group 
has previously performed surveys on the former Americana Property as well as a few adjacent 
property owners and is the firm most familiar and qualified to determined surrounding property 
lines. As such, staff is recommending that they be authorized to proceed in the near future, given 
that the survey conditions during the fall/winter (no leaves and better line of sight) will be 
ideal. If the trail does veer off course onto other private properties, the survey information  is  
the first  step  in  determining if  potential  re-routing  or other possible   property
acquisition is necessary.
