BY COUNCILOR STOVER:
RESOLVED, that Resolution 06-0472 be and hereby is amended to increase the dollar amount by $35,000, for a new total of $160,273, for storm sewer extensions to construct 330 feet of 12 inch storm sewer extension between Tioga Street and Colorado Street above 41st Avenue East. The new total of $160,273 is payable from Storm Sewer Fund 535, Agency 500, Organization 1905, Object 5533.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This amendment will authorize the extending a storm sewer from Tioga Street to Colorado Street in an existing utility easement above 41st Avenue East. Residents at the end of Tioga Street were adversely impacted by recent development, and installing 330 feet of new storm sewer with a direct connection to the city’s existing storm sewer will alleviate flooding.
Ten years ago the city constructed a driveway connection with drainage to a residence from Tioga Street. The residence had been deprived of a driveway connection from an adjacent street which the city had maintained for well over 30 years. In recent years, nearby development had disrupted the drainage pattern and caused hazardous icing on the connected driveway. The proposed storm sewer extension will rectify the drainage problem. Impacted residents will be expected to release the city from any future liability claims after the storm sewer is operational.
This resolution will amend the storm sewer repair contract with Alliance Steel Construction, Inc., to permit the completion of the storm sewer extension before winter.
