            Section 1.  City Manager Authorized to Execute Agreement.  The City Council hereby authorizes the City Manager to execute the Pole Attachment Agreement with Tacoma Public Utilities substantially in the form attached to this Resolution.

            Section 3.   Retroactive Ratification of Actions Taken.  Any and all actions taken by the City Manager or City staff related to this Pole Attachment Agreement that occurred prior to the authorization provided in this Resolution are hereby ratified and approved.
