satisfaction of the Commissioner, the following conditions precedent for City's disbursement of the TIF Assistance to the Park District:

The Park District may request payment from the City by submitting a Certificate of Expenditure in the form of Exhibit C hereto ("Certificate of Expenditure"), which may be processed and executed periodically. The City shall not execute and approve Certificates of Expenditure in the aggregate in excess of the actual costs of the Project, and in no event in an amount greater than the TIF Assistance. Prior to each execution of a Certificate of Expenditure by the City, the Park District shall submit documentation regarding the applicable expenditures to DPD. Delivery by the Park District to the City of any request for execution by the City of a Certificate of Expenditure hereunder shall, in addition to the items therein expressly set forth, constitute a certification to the City, as of the date of such request for execution of a Certificate of Expenditure, that:

The total amount of the request for the Certificate of Expenditure represents the actual amount payable in connection with the Project;
All amounts shown as previous payments on the current request for a Certificate of Expenditure have been paid to the parties entitled to such payment;

The Park District certifies that it has identified sources of funds, including the TIF Assistance, sufficient to complete its budgeted portion of the Property for Project.

Prior to the expenditure of TIF Assistance on the Project, the Commissioner, based upon the Project budget, may make such modifications to Exhibit B as he or she wishes in his or her discretion to account for all of the TIF Assistance to be expended under this Agreement; provided, however, that all TIF-Funded Improvements shall: (i) qualify as redevelopment project costs under the Act, (ii) qualify as eligible costs under the Plan; and (iii) be improvements that the Commissioner has agreed to pay for out of TIF Assistance, subject to the terms of this Agreement.
The Park District hereby acknowledges and agrees that the City's obligations hereunder with respect to the TIF Assistance are subject in every respect to the availability of funds as described in and limited by this Section 2.
