Mayor McLallen stated because Item 2 directly affects her, she will abstain from voting and will turn the meeting over to Mayor ProTem Crawford.
2. Approval of Temporary Sewer Agreement - McLallen, 21066 Cambridge Drive
Mr. Watson asked Council to recall that there have been several cases where the City does not have a sewer infrastructure directly affronting property. In these instances, the City has allowed property owners temporarily to tie into the infrastructure by way of easements through other private property. Mr. Watson noted they most recently accomplished this with Mark Churella. Mr. Watson believes it became evident to the Mayor now that Mr. Churella is ready to go forward and tie into a private sewer, that it would be possible for her to tie into the same connection. Mr. Watson explained the agreement before Council is essentially identical to the Churella agreement that allows for that connection. However, it is understood when the actual public infrastructure is available in the area, the temporary connection will cease and the property must tie into the regular sewer main.
Mayor ProTem Crawford stated this agreement is then in order in conjunction with the Churella agreement. Mr. Watson stated Mayor ProTem Crawford was correct.
CM-97-03-103: Moved by Clark, Seconded by Mitzel, MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY: To approve a Temporary Sewer Agreement - McLallen, 21066 Cambridge Drive
Mr. Watson reported that the agreement itself indicates in addition to the cost of any construction, the responsibility for obtaining any property rights or easements is to be assumed by the property owner.
