                                                                                Page 3
24.0 -   WHEREAS, the School District of the City of Erie ("District") Board of
         Directors ("Board") receives requests from time to time to discharge
         delinquent tax claims owed on blighted or dilapidated property when efforts
         are being made to rehabilitate that property; and

         WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania Real Estate Tax Sale Law, 72 P.S. §5860.101
         et seq., creates a procedure under which a political subdivision such as a
         school district may discharge delinquent tax claims, which law provides in
         relevant part the following:

(1)      Any owner, his heirs or legal representatives, or any lien creditor, his heirs,
         assigns or legal representative, or other interested person or, with the
         approval of the lienholding political subdivision, disinterested person may
         cause the discharge of tax claims and liens entered against the property by
         payment to the bureau of the amount of the aforesaid claim and interest
         thereon calculated under paragraph (1), (2) or (3). The subject property shall
         be removed from exposure to sale and shall not be listed in any
         advertisement relating to sale of property for delinquent taxes if, prior to July 1
         of the year following the notice of claim, payment is made in any of the
         following amounts:

(2)      An amount less than the total amount due under paragraph (1) [pertaining to
         the sum of outstanding taxes due plus interest] if the political subdivision
         agrees to accept that amount. If payment is made after July 1 of the year
         following the notice of claim, but before the actual sale of the property, the
         property shall not be sold.

72 P.S. §5860.501(a).

         WHEREAS, in certain compelling situations in an effort to cure local blight
         and to better maintain the local property tax base, the Board believes that it is
         in the best interest of the City of Erie community to grant the requests from
         property owners, lien creditors, interested and/or disinterested parties to
         discharge delinquent tax claims and liens entered against certain pieces of
         property; and

         WHEREAS, in this specific instance, the Board believes the request of
         EDICO, Inc. of Erie County to discharge delinquent tax claims, liens and costs
         entered against such property identified as 1404 East Avenue, Erie,
         Pennsylvania 16503 and with County Tax Identification # 15-020-040.0-
         107.00 to be compelling and in the best interest of the City of Erie community
         by increasing the commercial marketability of the property which should have
         the effect of creating additional jobs and placing the property back on the tax

         AND NOW, on this 10th day of September, 2008, it is hereby RESOLVED by
         the School District of the City of Erie Board of Directors the following:
                                                                       September 10, 2008
                                                                                  Page 4
