In either event, Se on ag pew Stehas oie cratatiens Loman aad To begin with, I have before me the contract between R & G Construction Company and the City of Atlanta dated November 25, 1968, which covers the subject matter of the letter. The contract is silent on the specific subject of the inquiry raised in the letter, although certain portions of the general conditions (paragraphs 11, 12, 17, 18, 20 and 22) support the proposition that the Contractor is entitled to no additional compensation. Inasmuch as there are no Georgia cases specifically on the point, we must refer to the general law to determine whether or not the facts set forth in the letter are sufficient to either (1) authorige the Contractor to take the position that there is an impossibility of performance of (2) to authorize additional compensation for the Contractor, To begin with, ". . . (1)t hae generally been deemed clear that any unprecedented flood or sudden inundation which no human power could stay and no foresight or prudence could anticipate is an ‘act of God.’ * 1 Am Jur 2d p. 680. Therefore, there is some question in my mind as to whether or not this is in fact an act of God, Im addition to the above general proposition of law, there is another legal proposition which I feel is presented in this case and which answers the question adversely as to the position of the Contractor. This proposition is as follows: “The question whether nonperformance is excused or the person who must bear the loss where parformance has been made more difficult or expensive by an act of God must be distinguished from the question whether nonper- formance is excused where performance is made impossible by such cause. Where an dnconditional contract is te do a thing which is poesible in itself, the nonperformance is not excused by an act of God, Performance of an express contract is not excused by the occurrence, after the contract was made, of an unforeseen event beyond the control of the contracting party except when the unfore- seen event renders performance of the contract impossible. Accordingly, even in a jurisdiction where an act of God may excuse the nonperformance of a contract, it must appear, to bring the case within that principle, that the thing to be done cannot by any means be accomplished." 1 Am Jur 2d p. 684. I am answering this question in a legal context; however, I feel that there might be some area here for equitable adjust- ment. To this end, I am requesting that you contact the architect, lay the problem before him and ask him what normally is done in similar circumstances, If I can be of any further assistance to you in this matter, please feel free to call upon me. I return herewith the contract above referred to, Very truly yours, Te Thomas F, Choyce Associate City Attorney TFC/ip ce: Jack C. Delius Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Enclosure

M, WILLIAMS See eeecinice snemeiaet Atlanta, Georgia 3033% MOREA rea se UnER DIRECTOR October 30, 1969 T-H85-1 (43 )PE & T-485-1(46)R/iT Fulton County Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor, City of Atlanta, City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Attention: Mr. Jack Delius General Manager of Parks Dear Mayor Allen: Over the period of the past year, we have had numerous meetings with representatives of the City of Atlanta in an attempt to utilize several areas adjacent to the above numbered project as joint development areas. The intent was for the City of Atlanta to acquire the remainder of designated parcels of property and develop mini~parks or utilize the property as additions to now existing parks. The purpose of the plan was to better tie the freeway into the existing neighborhoods. The original idea ran into financial problems and covld not be advanced, however, we feel the idea is sound and should be undertaken. After investigating the situation, we now find it possible for the State and Federal governments to acquire these parcels as whole takes and actually provide the landscaping of the designated areas as part of the project. The only obligation of the City of Atlanta would be the maintenance of these areas. To formalize the responsibilities in implementing this plan, a formal agreement from the City of Atlanta to undertake the main- tenance of these areas will be required. Attached is one (1) set of prints outlining three (3) areas where joint development is proposed and they are as follows: 1. Extension of Orme Park east of the proposed freeway between Virginia Avenue and Crestridge Drive. 2. Area east of freeway right-of-way and Greenland Drive bounded by Courtney Drive on south and Hillpine Drive on the north. 3. Area west of freeway right-of-wey between intersection of Courtney Drive and San Antonio Drive. Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Page Tio October 30, 1969 At present, no landscaping plans have been developed on these areas. This will be done along with the construction plans for the project and will be coordinated with your office. There may be other areas available for joint development, however, the location and limits of these areas will have a await final grading plans. If other areas are available that satisfy the overall plan, we will coordinate the development of these areas with your department. If the City of Atlanta is interested in participating in this joint development plan, please furnish this office with a statement of intent to maintain these areas at your earliest convenience. Revised right-of-way plans, which include the provision for these joint development areas have been submitted to the Bureau of Public Roads for approval. Your prompt reply to this request will be appreciated and will help maintain the overall schedule for completion of the project as presented at the June 10, 1969 Public Hearing.

Dear Sir: I heard over radio a few days ago about so mucn crime is committed here and it is much over tne country. I believe you said many small town hogrs come to Ga.'s largest cities and most of all Atlanta. Also you spoke of sex perverts coming to Piedmont Park. That last is not new to me. I heard of it 14 years ago. Seen some evidence of it. Last Thursday I went to Piedmont park from a place a few blocks away and while walking a young , fellow about 20 passed me carrying a towel@ and 1 though he must intend going i n swmiing when surely the pg1l is not open ntil a few weeks later. I was going to see the annual art ext. I am 71 and dont walk fast and after reaching the perk @ rested awhile when walking down by the lake I met the boy coming back and talzed to him. He said he and two other boys about his age went in swimming in part of the lake which is agoeinst the law to swim in any time and the 3 went in entirely naked and the other 2 were still in. However I think they got out and may have been two long haird hippies orlLookea like it but were dressed. A micdled aged friend of mine told me today he went with his young niece and her little son Sunday and they saw e youbng men naked. One got ina _ swin and he may have been Partly covered with his twwell. it was shocking ofcourse they had been swimming in the lake. Two lawws broken. Swimmi in lake and being naked, I vought a Great Speakled Bird mag. from a handsome young fellow with long hair and he told me Atlanta now had housey of entirely nude parties ofcourse for both sexes. Did ‘not say @ Where they are.

Parker State Highway Urban Engineer State Highway Department of Georgia No. 2 Capitol Square Atlanta, Georgia 30334 SUBJECT: I-485-1(43)PE & I-485- 1(06) RWW Fulton County Dear Mr. Parker: Thank you for your letter of October 30, 1969. We are delighted to have the opportunity to cooperate with the State and Federal governments in providing park areas along I-485 in the City of Atlanta. The Atlanta Parks Department is prepared to assume responsibility for the maintenance of the areas designated in your letter. Mr. Jack Delius, General Manager of Parks, has asked only that his landscape architects be allowed to review and possibly influence the landscaping plans for these properties. The Parks Department staff has suggested these areas be developed with tree planting schemes that woulda require very little maintenance, We hope that you will go further in acquiring a greater number of partial takes of smaller size assuming the Bureau of Public Roads will approve an expansion of this program. The Parks Department recognizes the possible benefits to the neighborhoods involved and is willing and anxious to assume responsibility for pat eeneenanee of additional smaller sections along T-405. Mr. Jack Delius will ask the Parks Committee to introduce a resolution to the Board of Aldermen on December 1, 1969, which would authorize a formal agreement from the City of Atlanta to undertake the maintenance of the designated areas as well as other possible areas. Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr. ee: Jack Delius Charlie Leftwich Buddy Fowlkes : Everett Millican Dan Sweat Rodney Cook Collier Gladin Cecil Turner Emory Parrish Richard Freeman Joe E.

Atlanta, Georgia 30331 Dear Mr. Glover: In further reference to your letter of May 7 and my reply of May 9, 1969 concerning an incident between you and the golf starter at Piedmont Golf Course on May 6, I wish to advise you that the following infor- mation has been submitted by the Assistant General Manager of Parks. The golf starter states that he advised you at least three, and probably four, times not to disturb the balls in the ball rack and explained to you that it was impossible to keep them straight if the general public confused the arrangement, etc. According to the starter, you did not remove just one ball, but seven or eight, and then both you and the starter became confused on which ball was first. Further, the golf starter states that after you had ignored his request not to bother the ball rack three or four times that he became very angry and did, in fact, use the language stated in your complaint. While i can certainly in no wey defend the foul language used by the starter in your presence, I must defend his position in his having advised you that the general public could not have access to the ball rack in that it would result in confusion over whose ball was first, etc, Thank you again for your psetronage, I am Cordially, Jack C.

EARL LANDERS, Administrative Assistant : MRS, ANN M, MOSES, Executi t June 27 , 19 69 DAN E. SWEAT, JR., Director ota ieihaaii Liaison MEMORANDUM TO: Johnny Robinson FROM: George J. Berry SUBJECT: City-owned lot at Richardson and Conley Streets. At your request, I reviewed our situation on this piece of property with the following findings: l. In 1944, Mayor Hartsfield granted an elderly lady permission to use this lot. The city had owned it for a very long time. In the late 1800's the lot had been used as a dump for "night soil.'' The lady had continued to use the property and had some sort of church constructed on it which the City Housing Code Division has recently required her to demolish. Consequently, she does not now occupy the property. This lady now feels that she has a legal right to the property, however, because she has had effective possession for this length of time. 2. In 1967 the City Parks Department was investigating all city-owned property to determine their feasibility for use as playlots. When Jack Delius was investigating this property the elderly lady (known locally as "the witch doctor") placed a "hex'' on him for proposing to use her property. 3. Because of its possible use by the Parks Department, the Law Department initiated an action to determine the validity of the city's title. Associate City Attorney, Ralph Jenkins, represented the city and while he was unable to remove the hex from Mr. Delius, did succeed in winning the case and clearing the city's title to the lot, June 27, 1969 Memo to Johnny Robinson Page Two 4, Pete Williams of the Land Department says that the boundaries of the lot need to be surveyed. He feels that an adjoining build- ing is encroaching on the property. Because of the time factor, the Parks Department arranged for another playlot in the vicinity with which they are satisfied. Mr. Delius advised me that they now have no plans to use this lot. Mr. Jenkins advised me by telephone that if the city is serious in wanting to assert its title to this property, it is important that this property be put to some definite use or it be declared surplus and sold. I did not inquire into his legal reasons for this position, but he felt that the failure of the city to act would strengthen the claimant's case and could possibly result in overturning the court's decision, A third alternative, therefore, would be to abandon the property to the claimant. Very truly yours, George J, Berry GJB:p

Post Office Box 11748 Atlanta, Georgia 30305 Dear Mr. Anderton: Thank you very much for your letter of April i7, 1969 concerning the butler-type steel building erected in Chastain Memorial Park by Municipal Theater, Inc. under a lease agreement of three years which expired September 15, 1967. I particularly appreciate your timely correspondence and assure you it is the desire of this department, and I feel that I speak for the Parks Committee, to renew the lease on this structure provided the City has assurance that the unpaid balance against this structure of $17,500.00 be settled in some acceptable manner so as to preclude liens against the structure, etc. The original lease provided that at the end of the leased period the structure would become the property of the City of Atlanta. However, it is certainly not our intention to attempt to utilize the building for desperately needed storage and maintenance space unless, of course, your organization has no further need for it. We will 811 work with you in providing what we hope to be a successful 1969 Summer Season. I will ask the Associate City Attorney, Mr. Thomas F. Choyce, to proceed to prepare a resolution to be introduced to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen on May 5, 1969, which will renew the lease for an additional three years. As I understand it, the present law is such that we are not allowed to lease beyond this period of time except at Grant and Piedmont Parks.

Dear Mr. Delius: As you are aware both the "Theatre Under The Sters" and the "Municipal Theatre! no longer exist. Jn place of these.two theatres is the newly chartered and duly organized "Theatre of the Stars, Inc.", which will be the future sunmer and winter.theatre. The 1969 suxmer . shows will be held in the new Civic Auditorium, and the opening show will be on July &, 1969. The new "Theatre of the Stars" is presently operating out of the old Municipal Theatre building in Chastain Park. This building was erected on Chastain Park property, under a lease agreement of three (3) years with the City of Atlanta, which expired on September 15, 1967. Under the lease agreement, it is renewable "upon such terms and conditions as thé Mayor may desire", ‘ In order to constuct this building, a note for $32,500.00 was negotiated by the Municipal Theatre with the Citizens and Southern Yational Bank. Presently there is an unpaid balance of $17,500,00-~ no payments, due to the defunct condition of the Municipal Theatre, have been made since December, 1958. I am presently discussing this indebtedness with the 0. & 5S. Bank and will also discuss it with the Board of Trustees of the Theatre of the Stars at their May meeting. Unless we can maintain the usage of this building it will be impossible to present the 1969 summer shows. Will you therefore discuss this with the proper city authorities and secure a lease extension? Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Miss Kelley: Thank you for your letter of November 26th. On November 28th the undersigned, along with the Assistant General Manager of Parke, the Senior Administrative Assistant for Federal Aid, end the City Arborist visited the above location, It was the consensus of opinion that limited Park personnel and equipment could not be diverted from areas already assigned as our responsibiiity to take on additional responsibilities involving property not in ownership by the Depertment of Parks. Furthermore, the elevation of the above site is such that the mere planting of ass, ete, would not enhance the general ares in that from street 11 it would be virtually unnoticed except at the far end of the property. Finally, it was immediately evident to the inspection team that if temporary beautification were attempted on this large tract of land, we would have no recourse other than to continue the practice throughout the entire Stone Mountain Freeway project. I only wish that we had sufficient available manpower to temporarily beautify this location, Beautification is our business, but I say to 700 ee Eanes Sate Bee ae.

She did not impress me as someone who had the temperament, personality, or background to make a successful Recreation Leader. She came to my office yesterday in a very angry mood, threw the letter on my desk, and said she was not going to take that king of "----", She talked on for quite some time, saying, among other things, that she was not going to told no if she had to get a gun and come up here and shoot somebody, I did not say a great deal to her - I was listening most of the time - but I was polite and tried to be helpful. She seemed to have calmed down some when she left, Wate f ow iyss lla Munckawme — Meee fe “7 : eillips - = aod 3 swear Leper. Mys, Be tr9 Bfennor Perse

ASSSTANT. _Atlanta, Georgia 30314 “Dear Mrs. Smith: . Thank you very much for your letter of February el, 1969,. :. Which was received on March 6, 1969 regarding the need for a swimming pool at Anderson Park. I address this '. Jetter primarily to your since your name appeared first ; on the letter of petition and I am taking the liberty of sending carbon copies to Messrs. Miller and Hart Since this office has addresses on these two gentlemen. In addition, I am taking the liberty of sending carbon - copies of this letter along with copies of yours to = the members of the Park Committee of the Board of Aldermen :, and staff members of this department. == “: Out of the fifteen swimming pools currently operated by the City of Atlanta, five of them do not meet modern ‘ Fulton County Health Department specifications. These :, pools are Piedmont, Maddox, Washington, Oakland City, ‘and Mozley. Every conceivable attempt is made to maintain } sufficient maximum hygenic standards in that these five »: mentioned pools are not presently filtered. Each and {; every one of them is scheduled for replacement in our - 15 year Park and Recreation Plan. ** We particularly appreciated your kind remarks concerning -: development which has taken place at Anderson Park and. we fully agree with you that this location does need a ‘swimming pool. However, a large percentage of the 1969 ' Park Improvement Budget has been earmarked for Model Cities and urban beautification. A total of some 32 different projects are listed which will, we hope, be completed in 1969. This will utilize every penny of funds made available to this department by the Board of - Aldermen for capital improvements. aENT Oe. ait ary ae ge. yi ™ Pie Bo 3B ow We aul a AS 4 & 1 £ OF AVY —e irs. Geneva H. Smith -|-March 7, 1969 Page 2 . Pie Te When Mr. W. Z. Miller recently came before the Parks Committee of the Board of Aldermen requesting that a swimming pool be built at the earliest possible time lat Anderson Park, several members of the Committee stated that they would make an attempt or at least request addi- tional capital improvement funds for this department from the new bond issue authorized late last year. As I understand it, a number of capital projects from all twenty-odd departments are being listed now and priorities - will shortly be established as to the utilization of this bond money. It must cover sewers, streets, bridges, etc.; not Just parks. A meniber of this department, Mr. Charles Devon of our Park Engineering Division, was present when a community services coordinator stated at a meeting held in your community last year that plans did include a swimming pool and bathhouse for Anderson Park to be completed during 1969. Mr. Devon was completely shocked at this statement and corrected the man immediately thereafter. Not even the undersigned, as General Manager of Parks, -has the authority to obligate the City of Atlanta to projects where no funds exist. Please be assured that I do have a definite personal interest in the future growth of recreation facilities for the Dixie Hills area and in particular Anderson Park. You can indeed count on me to the extent that I am allowed to construct new eens within the capacity of available funds. We appreciate your continued assistance, and I am ordially, cod CMO! ack C.

  • Text: Fulton County, Georgia .Inter-Offfice Memorandum To: J. W. Lemon, Administrator, Health Department From: Alan F. Kiapper, County Manager Date June 14, 1985 Subject: Addition to Adamsville Heeith Conter (Bond Proiest $3~53-2) Thig will confirm our conversation on Friday, June il, with Messrs. Landers, Delius, and Sheats regarding the City's interests in the Adamsville Hoalth Cantar property. Az painted out by Mr. Landers and Mr. Delius et this 9 ecting, the City is not in a sosition to ébanden its bullding oa this gita at aaytinie in the foraseeabie future. They con zidor that under the Pian of Inprovament the property will go to the City without any encumbrance in 1953 following tha expiration af the Hill Burton commitments. In view of this, wa will have to work out our plans for the axpansion of the health canter on the property that we have at tha moment pius any oroperty that we might bs ale to acquire to the south of the present site. ‘ AS we egread at the meating, we will follow tha following course: (1) You will proceed to contact the State Health Department end relete the Gbove information to tham. Wo will ra= guest them to approve the project with the understanding that tha County will purchase additioaal land to the south. li this is acceptable to them, then wa will have to bring the matter to the County Commission, preferably next Wednesday, June 16. (2} Iam requesting the Departmant of Planning to work with the Land Agent and the Architect to determine precisely what property should te purchased to the south of the present site. At sur meeting, Mr. Landers pointed out that the City was going to have to locate a fira atation in this area. If sufficient land exists between the present site boundary and Gordan aoad, he stated that the City would be interested in attempting to work out a joint pur- ehasg of tha land, with tha Gardon Road frantage being used as 4 location fora fire station. Before any decisions ara mada on aita purchase, we should dsetormine if there ig adequate iand for a fire station and, if 80, whather the City is interested in @ joint purchase. Mama to Mr, Lemon Juno 14, !965 = Page 2 (3) Assuming that tiie State will agree to the above, we still have the problam of getting thair agreement to the proposad plan prepated by Mr. Daadmore. While it right bo possible to design & simpler addition to the buliding, I kelieve that the pian oroposed by Mr. Deadmora would provide a fer more satisfactory nal product. As aoted Friday, this is a@ rapidly grawing area. We can look fawaerd to a heavy eoncantration of population. Ithiak it {s important that we consider this when makiag decisions on the size of the heaith canter. I know that you will drive these points home to the Stata Health Department officials. It is tiportent that wo get as much done as possible prior to the maeting on Wod nesday 50 that we are in @ position to discuss the antize situation with tha Cominission, Please keep me advised of your progress. a ec: Harold Sheats, County Attorney Richard M.
