Sump pump drain resolution deferred for 90 days
An item appeared on both the Storm Water Utility Committee and Public Works Committee meeting agendas earlier this afternoon. That item had to do with the preliminary report/final resolution for the sump pump drain connections into the storm sewers project. The area covered is 82nd Street – 62 feet to 805 feet west of 17th Avenue, 17th Avenue – 81st Street to 83rd Street.
Jeff Davison, an attorney representing four property owners, spoke regarding some serious procedural problems. He stated that he and Matt Knight, deputy city attorney, have worked out a tentative agreement on this issue. Knight then spoke and said that thirty-day notices need to go out to the property owners regarding the nuisance discharges, then another thirty days needs to be waited for the appeal process. He called for a minimum of a ninety-day deferral, and both committees approved the deferral unanimously.
