CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
The proposed addition of paragraph (13) to Section 5.e. is to establish an alternative method for approving subdivisions and the recording of the plat. This will provide developers an alternative method to obtain approval and move forward with construction prior to the recording of the final plat and would be at the developers risk rather than the City's. It will also provide an alternative for other landowners thinking of subdividing, but who are hesitant due to the cost and complexities of bonding.
The proposed addition of paragraph (12) to Section 5.e. is to clarify when building permits and occupancy certificates can be issued. The proposed language will define when a building permit can be issued, relative to the completion of improvements under our current platting regulations. Our current ordinance is silent on the issue and can be misinterpreted to mean that houses may be started before public improvements are complete.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve on third and final reading the proposed language amendment to a portion of Section 5. (specifically 5.e. "Final Plat" and Section 9 of Appendix C (Subdivisions) of the City of Green River Code of Ordinances to establish an alternative method for approving subdivisions, recording of the Final Plat and to clarify when building permits can be issued.

The bid opening for the project was held on January 26, 2023 resulting in three bids. Upon examination of the bid documentation submitted it has been determined that two of the bids contain material irregularities. Therefore, the City has no choice but to recommend the rejection of the bids from Prospect Construction and VanCon, Inc.
Suggested Motion: I move to reject the bids for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Facility Project from Prospect Construction and VanCon Inc. due to material departures from the bid specifications by both bidders.
