Attention: Marion Hazelton Dear Marion:
I have delayed sending you this in an attempt to find a less expensive way of removing the concrete than what my estimates indicate. I really, however, can't see any way to take it out of there, except by hand, and based on the assumption that we will do all of the work, we will hire as much local labor as reasonable as we can in Monticello, as well as make a pile out of the removed concrete to be hauled off by the City, using their equipment, man power, etc. and also assume that they will furnish us, in approximately the same location, the gravel that we would need and which we, of course, would load and place by hand under the pool floor.
Based on the affore going assumption, as well as your furnishing us a compressor, hoses, and air tools, we can do the demolition and compaction for the sum of $1,800.00. This initially seems rather high to me for what has to be done, but as I mentioned, I delayed sending you the quotation until I had time to go back and research out some similar jobs plus talk to every excavation contractor in the valley. From all indications, if anything, it is a little slim, so I feel that we should proceed on this basis.
I am, of this date, ordering the piping and materials that we will need to do the job as well as the steel and would appreciate getting back from you, as soom as possible, a purchase order on the portion of the job that you want me to accomplish so that we might get started in the next ten days or so.
Looking forward to hearing from you, I remain
Very sincerely yours,

Dear Mr. Miller:
The United States of America acting through the Secretary of the Interior, pursuant to authority con-tained in Section 16 of the Federal Airport Act, conveyed by patent to the Counties of Grand and San Juan, Utah approximately 357.88 acres to construct the Grand County Airport at Moab, Utah.
The patent stipulated that the property interest conveyed will revert to the United States pursuant to Section 16 of the Federal Airport Act in event that the lands in question are not developed or cease tc be used as an airport.'
In order to formalize the transfer back to the United States, Grand and San Juan Counties executed a quitclaim deed dated July 18, 1966 and transmitted it to this agency. Subsequent to the execution of this title to the improvements located on the land conveyed by the quitclaim deed.
I am enclosing a draft of a correction quitclaim deed correcting the prior quitclaim deed dated July 18, 1966 by providing for retention by Grand County of the improvements located upon the property. Special note should be made that the deed provides that the improvements must be removed within 60 days after the date of execution.
The Counties of Grand and San Juan must support the correction deed by resolution of the governing bodies of both Counties authorizing an appropriate official to execute the instrument of conveyance. The resolutions should also contain a recital that the property has ceased to be used for the purpose for which it was transferred under Section 16 of the Federal Airport Act.
If you have any questions concerning the above discussed material, please contact the undersigned.
