11.6.4.040 Findings

(a) The Pueblo has received a grant for infrastructure improvement from the USDA-RD.

(b) The USDA-RD requires the Pueblo provide evidence that the Pueblo has acquired continuous and adequate authorization for the land to be used for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the waste water system.

(c) The Council has authority to enact laws pertaining to all lands, persons and activities within the Pueblo pursuant to the governing Agreement.

(d) The Council has the sovereign power and governmental authority to designate Pueblo land for the benefit of the Pueblo and to support the provision of public services to its members and residents, government and businesses.

(e) Such a designation of Pueblo land for the benefit of the Pueblo does not convey or alienate any interests in such lands to a third party or encumber those lands for the benefit of any third party and therefore does not require the approval of the Secretary of the Interior.

(f) the Council reviewed and considered the attached survey map entitled "Permanent and Construction Land Dedicated for Public Use for Utilities" showing the location and description of all land held by the Pueblo that is authorized for the waste water facilities and has determined it is in the best interests of the Pueblo to designate this land for the public purposes of construction, operation, and maintenance of the waste water system.
