23. PRICE RIVER WATER IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT - Sewer Fees
Councilmember Nikas reported that he along with Mayor Colosimo, Councilmember Piccolo, and Vern Jones, met with Rod Ivie and Phil Palmer of Price River Water Improvement District regarding general discussion on the sewer fees. As PRWID is now aware of our concerns, it is recommended that a formal request be made with regards to sewer fees. The City started out retaining $1.00 out of the sewer fees and currently still does. However, sewer fees have gone to $16, with $15 going to PRWID. PRWID does maintain some lines within city limits from 7th East eastward and some spotted sections in town. Mr. Ivie and Mr. Palmer would not commit as to whether they were interested in taking over maintenance of City sewer lines, that this is something their board would have to look at. The City could ask for part of the money they are paying to be retained for use for maintenance and for construction of sewerlines within Price City limits. PRWID currently has no outstanding bonds in the sewer department, other than the sewer treatment plant. This amounts to approximately $6 of the $15 portion. The rest of the money is going into the PRWID sewer fund for general maintenance, construction of new lines, capital improvements, etc. Approximately 61% of PRWID's connections are in the City. Councilmember Piccolo suggested that PRWID should be made aware of our depleting sewer lines with no way to replace them. Motion. Councilmember Nikas moved that a letter be submitted to PRWID expressing Price City's concerns over the allocation of the $15 per month sewer fee. Further, that statistics be presented along with the percentage of connections and the deterioration of City sewerlines. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
24. JIM CONOVER - Upgraded Water Connection Approved
Councilmember Piccolo reported that as recommended in the last meeting, he and Paul Wheeler, Water Supt., discussed the request of Jim Conover to connect to the main high pressure water line and install a new water meter to his residence in order to get more pressure. Mr. Wheeler felt that this would not be a problem, but that the City should make the connection to the main line, that it be disinfected properly and made with a stainless steel tap. The Council expressed their concern over the original water line from 2nd North to the present water meter, if it should be left vacant or dug up and terminated, and if it should deteriorate and become a problem. As the street is newly asphalted, it was Paul's recommendation that nothing be done to the old line at this point, but that liability be directed to the property owner should a problem arise. The old line has been under the street for many years and has not created a problem before. Mr. Conover will take care of all expenses to open and close the street and for the new waterline tap. He will also pay the additional charges for the increased connection. Motion. Councilmember Piccolo moved that Jim Conover be allowed to install, at his own cost and expense, a new water connection on the 5th Avenue side of his property into the high pressure water main, and that if he increases the size of the standard connection and meter that he pay for such associated expenses and fees. Further, that the staff and Council are concerned about the line from 2nd North to the present water meter and if it should be disconnected, that all fees be paid and that there be no liens attributed to the new connection prior to its hookup, and that if the pressure does not improve, that the City should in no way be held responsible. Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried.
25. CEDAR RIDGE SUBDIVISION - Request To Install Storm Drain System and
Councilmember Nikas reported that as recommended at the last meeting, a committee has reviewed the request of the Cedar Hills Subdivision with regards to the City installing a storm drain system and making improvements on the proposed roadway that would be on the east side of the subdivision. The committee, consisting of himself, Councilmember Piccolo, Gary Sonntag, and Cobb Johnson, met and after several hours of discussion, found that this is a rather unique situation, particularly on the east side where a roadway is suggested. It is the committee's recommendation that the City not participate in the cost of installing the storm drain system in this subdivision, and that costs be borne by the developer. The City will do whatever is necessary in the foothills to make sure the runoff goes into the proper areas. The actual cost of installing the storm drain system in the subdivision and hooking into the City's system on 8th north should be borne by the developer. With regards to the roadway, the design that was given concept approval shows the backs of homes facing the proposed roadway, with possible fencing. The committee recommended two options. (1) That if they continue with the present design, that the developer be responsible for developing their half of the roadway, installing asphalt, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and street lighting. (2) That the City not require a roadway. Therefore, the subdivision would not need to deed the 33' of roadway to the City. They could modify their design to allow their lots to go through the full area. Motion. Councilmember Nikas moved that the above recommendations be approved and that this information be sent to the developer in letter form. Motion seconded by Councilmember Piccolo and carried.
Meeting adjourned at 7:20 p.m.
