Title
Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 2 to the Articles of Incorporation of the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority Hereafter Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority
Memorandum
The City of Ann Arbor incorporated the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) by resolution dated July 15, 1968, under the provisions of Act 55 of P.A. 1963 (Act 55) for the purpose of operating a mass transportation system. The Articles of Incorporation were amended by resolution dated June 30, 1969 to alter the membership of the Board, establishing at 7 members and staggering the terms of the original members appointed.

The City of Ypsilanti has requested to join the AATA. Section 2 of Act 55 requires amendment of the Articles of Incorporation if a political subdivision joins the Authority. As the incorporator of the Authority, the City is being presented with the attached amendment for approval. Amendment No. 2 will also be presented for adoption and execution by the Authority Board and the City of Ypsilanti.

The proposed amendment does the following:
· Adds the City of Ypsilanti as an incorporator with all rights granted to members of the Authority under Act 55
· Changes the name of the AATA to the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority recognizing the expanded geographic area in which the Authority will operate
· Alters the composition of the Board of the new Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority to increase the Board membership to 9 with 1 member being appointed by the Mayor of the City of Ypsilanti with concurrence of the Ypsilanti City Council.
· Authorizes the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority to function as successor in interest of the AATA

When adopted by all parties, the amendment will be filed with the Washtenaw County Clerk and the Michigan Secretary of State as required by Act 55 and published in the Washtenaw County Legal News.
