Approve a Resolution authorizing the Mayor or City Manager and City Clerk or any of their designees to execute a Correction Quitclaim Deed conveying the following: (1) hereby conveying the fee interest in all right, title and interest in and to all oil, gas casinghead gasoline and other hydrocarbons and mineral substances below 500 feet without surface entry rights in the property conveyed to the City by Grant Deed recorded November 8, 2002, Instrument No. 2002-0416671-00; (2) hereby conveying all mineral rights described in the areas offered for dedication to the City on Parcel Map MS 362-02 filed September 3, 2003 in Contra Costa County, Map Book 188 at Pages 6 through 9, generally known as the Winco site located on the north side of Lone Tree Way between Empire Avenue and Fairview Avenue, from Rose Marie Pierce, as trustee of The Elmo Clifford and Rose Marie Pierce Surviving Spouse’s Trust, as to an undivided ½ interest; Paul Martin, a married man, Ralph Martin, a married man, James Martin and Lawrence Martin, a married man as to an undivided ½ interest; all as tenants in common, and any other documents necessary to terminate City interest in the above, as may be needed to complete the transfer.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On February 5, 2002, by Resolution No. 02-05, Planning Commission approved Parcel Map MS 362-02 (TSM 8617) as conditioned.

On October 28, 2002, by Resolution No. 99-170, City Council accepted a Grant Deed for a portion of APN 019-010-008 from the Pierce and Martin families (Winco Project) for the Northwest Quadrant Infrastructure, CIP Project No. 336-3127 (Lone Tree Widening) now known as Lone Tree Way Widening – Segments 1 & 2.

On November 25, 2003, by Resolution No. 3037, City Council authorized the Mayor or City Manager and City Clerk or any of their designees to execute a Quitclaim Deed conveying the fee interest in mineral rights below 500 feet without surface entry rights in the Grant Deed recorded November 8, 2002 by Instrument No. 2002-0416671-00 and in the areas offered for dedication to the City on Parcel Map MS 362-02 filed September 3, 2003 in Contra Costa County, Map Book 188 at Pages 6 through 9, generally known as the Winco site to the Martin Family.

BACKGROUND
Recently Staff has been informed that the wording for Quitclaiming the mineral rights to the Martin family, agreed to by all parties in the Quitclaim Deed and Resolution approved on November 25, 2003, as currently recorded, is being interpreted by a third party in a different manner than was intended . Therefore, staff recommends a Correction Quitclaim Deed and Resolution be recorded to clarify the City’s intent. This should be considered a housekeeping issue as staff is just rewording the description in the Quitclaim Deed and in the Resolution for clarification purposes and no new action is taking place.

FISCAL IMPACT
