$483,000 in relocating its cable facilities for expressway construction. In 1974, plaintiff requested that this lawsuit be placed in the inactive file primarily because of the lack of construction activity with respect to the expressway system. It is the opinion of the City Attorney that the issue involved in this litigation will be resolved in favor of the defendants as a matter of law and that no monetary damages will occur.

A suit is pending in the U. S. District Court, Western District of North Carolina, which seeks to enjoin the construction of a new 10,000 foot runway at Douglas Municipal Airport on the grounds that the runway project had previously been inadequately assessed as to its environmental impact on the surrounding area. At the conclusion of a hearing held in August 1975, the Court ordered that paving and lighting of the new runway not be commenced until a supplementary environmental impact statement has been prepared and submitted to the appropriate Federal agencies. A consultant has been retained by the City and the Federal defendant and work is substantially completed on the preparation of the supplementary environmental impact statement. It is anticipated that the completed statement will be presented to the appropriate Federal agencies on April 1, 1976. A contract for paving the new runway was awarded by the City in June 1975 in the amount of $7,020,014. The paving contractor has given notice that it intends to assert a claim for damages of approximately $1,000,000 for additional costs and losses incurred as a result of the delay in proceeding with construction under the contract. Alleged damages will continue to accrue if further delay is experienced beyond July 1976. A lighting contract for the installation of a lighting system for the new runway was awarded by the City in June 1975 in the amount of $784,498. At present no claim for damages has been made by the lighting contractor. Because of the Court's order, no work is proceeding under either contract at this time. It is the opinion of the City Attorney that, assuming favorable Federal review, work can commence on both contracts by July 1976.

The City is a party defendant in numerous other proceedings where (i) an adverse adjudication will not have a material adverse effect on the City's financial condition or (ii) the City's liability, if determined to exist, will be covered by adequate insurance.
