And this is the balancing change orders also the first change order for the tank washing contract that we did this year and we had 00:00:28
some issues with some of the. 00:00:32
Stains that were on Crescent Ridge Tank, so it just took a little extra and so we had to use a different chemical. So this is to 00:00:37
close out this contract and it's an additional $1200 and it is budgeted and it brings the total contract amount to 50,000. 00:00:43

Mr. File, you can ask question after the vote, but we appreciate your question. Go ahead. 00:02:06
Just out of curiosity. 00:02:10
I think you've told me this before. 00:02:12
Like on Skyland Blvd. The lights going somewhere, subdivisions and here and there. 00:02:14
They're not. 00:02:19
Did they determine how long that? 00:02:21
Yes. 00:02:26
Yeah. 00:02:28
Sure, That was it. 00:02:31
Sorry about that John. We, I think we got a motion we're approved, don't we, Brandy? 00:02:36
All right, item number 3. Authorization for the mayor to execute. 00:02:40
An intelligent transportation systems agreement without it, That's always important. 00:02:44
To aid and traffic management, Brian let us know how we're going to be more intelligent. 00:02:48
Ohh. 00:02:52
So. 00:02:54
We're we're actually doing this right now. We don't have an agreement in place, but. 00:02:55
Basically out on the city share resources like the fiber optic network, the traffic cameras. 00:02:59
They're monitoring traffic. 00:03:05
Dynamic messaging systems. 00:03:07
So those resources are being shared. 00:03:09
For the purpose of. 00:03:12
You know, collaborative effort to make to for the Traffic Management Center USA. 00:03:14
For, you know, monitoring and. 00:03:21
Operation of our traffic system, so basically this. 00:03:23
Puts what we're doing now, the the shared. 00:03:26
Both agencies using those resources and an agreement. 00:03:30
Questions. 00:03:36
Second moved and seconded. All in favor. Say aye, aye. 00:03:39
Item number three is approved item number #4. 00:03:43
Approval of Professional services agreement with Premier Service Company total not to exceed 9500 dollars. 00:03:46
Welcome. Thank you. You're not Jason, I am Jason today. Sorry about that. 00:03:54
We've got the B team, but this is to allow us to do some horizontal boring for. 00:03:59
Installation of conduit for fiber optic cable. 00:04:06
Our. 00:04:10
Fiber optic cable currently ends at Gene Stallings Ave. and the University Strip area, and we want to extend it about two blocks 00:04:11
further. 00:04:14
To Frank Thomas and that will allow us to directly wire three and hopefully a fourth camera that we've got in the area. 00:04:19
They're currently operating on Wi-Fi and it fails when the area is busy. 00:04:28
So. 00:04:33
Questions. 00:04:35
Where's the money coming from? 00:04:37
It's coming from the University Improvement University Blvd. Improvement Project. 00:04:39
And. 00:04:45
Gene Stallings and Frank. 00:04:47
Thomas, run parallel to each other, are you? 00:04:48
Connecting them or running it? 00:04:52
North-south, down them. We're we're gonna extend the fiber as it stands, the fiber traveling E goes as far as Gene Stallings, and 00:04:54
we wanna take it all the way to Frank. OK, Yeah. Where's it coming from? 00:05:01
It's coming from City Hall. 00:05:08
Downtown. 00:05:10
Down 7th St. or what? It goes along 6th St. 00:05:12
Six straight. 00:05:16
I'm fine with it. 00:05:21
Motion. 00:05:22
Moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye aye. Item number four is approved. 00:05:23
Item number 5 is authorization to enter into an agreement between City of Tuscaloosa and Westerville Company. 00:05:28
Regarding transfer and conveyance of assets, ownership and operation of North River Yacht Club low pressure sanitary sewer system. 00:05:35
Mr. Moore, mouthful. Good afternoon. It was a mouthful. Good afternoon. 00:05:43
This process we've been negotiating with Westerville for approximately 6 months. I know, Mr. Chairman, you've been involved since 00:05:47
the beginning of those discussions. 00:05:51
If approved, we would ask this go on the 27th Council agenda, but the nuts and bolts of it are in the Exhibit A that was included 00:05:57
in your packet. 00:06:00
Gives you the geographic specifics. And let me just note this is Todd specifically to the North River Yacht Club area 00:06:04
neighborhood. 00:06:07
This is Westervelt really only primary interest in the area and due to growth factors. 00:06:11
Overall maintenance, proximity to the lake. 00:06:17
We would like to to take over that system and it's been a very productive negotiation Westervelt will be offering. I think we're 00:06:20
approximately time, we're still about 162 five. 00:06:24
We're still white on that quote from Mickey's Backhoe for a couple of minor repairs we want to do before it's transferred. 00:06:29
But that doesn't seem to be any type of deal killer for any party. But we should have that well in advance of the 27th. 00:06:35
In addition, we do have a couple of Westervelt representatives here in case you do have any questions. 00:06:42
Brandon, one of the things that I, I think is important. 00:06:48
To note is. 00:06:51
There there's been some real good due diligence in this as as we've kind of. 00:06:53
Evaluated that system. I think this is. 00:06:58
A good thing for the city of Tuscaloosa for long term growth. And then they're also. 00:07:00
Going to provide us with. 00:07:05
Some capital or some money, right and reserve to help with any. 00:07:08
And that capital major was based off of the historic maintenance over the last 10 to 15 years from West results that gave us a 00:07:13
really good baseline. 00:07:17
Over that six months, you've had a full legal review, full engineering review, full water and sewer review. 00:07:21
Really want to thank Westerville. They provided enough data to our our team could go back and cross reference it from a water and 00:07:27
sewer and engineering standpoint. 00:07:30
Mr. Bob has done a fantastic job, Mr. Gardner and reviewing the document to make sure. 00:07:35
Both parties are protected and it and makes sense for. 00:07:39
For us to make. 00:07:42
Absolutely. Questions from committee members. 00:07:44
So we When would we take over? 00:07:47
I would assume it would be at the end of June, assuming estimate comes in or excuse me, the estimate is back after council 00:07:51
adoption. 00:07:54
So the the council action is. 00:08:02
Tied to. 00:08:06
An engineering study coming back? Well, no, A repair. 00:08:09
What during the study process, the review process of minor repair was discovered? We're just waiting on the estimate back. 00:08:13
I don't think it would exceed 50,000 somewhere probably more than 35,000 range but we're we should have that back in advance. OK. 00:08:20
So we're. 00:08:23
You know, I'm never. 00:08:27
We've done this we're. 00:08:29
We're taking over something under the ground that. 00:08:30
Is both an asset and a liability, right? 00:08:34
That might be fair. Yeah, it's an asset that's. 00:08:37
Capital that's been invested. 00:08:39
This liability and that's going to require maintenance and correct some some repair. 00:08:41
And then they're giving us. 00:08:45
A lump sum. 00:08:48
Yes, Sir. 00:08:49
To take it over. 00:08:50
And then? 00:08:51
Kimberly, do your. 00:08:53
Your folks. 00:08:54
Are y'all involved in assessing? 00:08:56
What the business? 00:09:01
Potential looks like going forward. 00:09:05
We've been involved, have been involved with this whole process, with evaluating. 00:09:08
What's out there? What it takes to maintain it. 00:09:13
The standard at which it was built. 00:09:15
I mean, we've been involved the whole time with it, so we agree with doing this and taking sober and then we agree with the amount 00:09:18
is fair. 00:09:21
For us to maintain it, this is very similar to what we did with the bearish trace pump station where. 00:09:24
And bear strikes. One they gave us one, we got the estimates for it and we're. 00:09:29
They gave us the calls and we're gonna get it up to standards. 00:09:34
This is a similar situation to where we're going to use the money to maintain it in that company. 00:09:37
And and I forgot to mention this, but Kimberly makes an important point I I would assume that. 00:09:41
Kimberly and her team would ask if those funds be essentially reserved for any improvements that may come up in the geographic 00:09:47
area out of that because that's where that baseline estimate came. Does that need to be, is that packaged in the action that will 00:09:52
be asked to approve? 00:09:57
Yes, Sir, we've we've. 00:10:02
We've talked that, we've spoken to accounting and finance and asked that be kind of. 00:10:04
Put off to the side for this particular. 00:10:08
OK. 00:10:10
The list stations in that area already belong to the city, correct? Right. This is just really the pipes it feeds that. 00:10:11
Salons. 00:10:18
Brendan, whatever this repair is, it's out there. It'll come out of this money. 00:10:20
Correct. From Westerville, right? Right. 00:10:23
Before and they've I think we're we're discussing a cost sharing right now and traditionally Mickey's backhoe has been the one 00:10:26
that's done primarily the work for the last few years so. 00:10:30
Waiting to get a sound estimate. I think we have essentially a not to exceed number, we're just hoping. 00:10:35
We had a very, very. 00:10:40
Conservative estment on the hot conservative estimate on the high end, I think it'll come back a little bit lower, but obviously 00:10:41
we'll get that validated from. 00:10:45
Testing. 00:10:50
And then to your point, Councillor Busby, essentially that council action would effectuate the agreement side of it. We would take 00:10:52
it and sort out the repair side and we would expect that to change hands. 00:10:56
End of June, You said end of June, early July. It seems like probably before the 4th. As long as there's no glitch in paperwork 00:11:01
and in in two weeks, we should be. 00:11:05
Voting on that. 00:11:10
Because the legal agreement, everything should be done. 00:11:12
Our request is that if it gets out of committee would be for it to go on council on the 27th. I think Mr. Robbins and Mr. Bobbitt 00:11:15
have basically ironed out the agreement and we're just essentially waiting on that estimate to finalize the number. 00:11:21
And then we'll be ready. Yes, Sir. 00:11:28
Other committee questions. 00:11:31
I don't have any other questions. I would entertain a motion to approve. 00:11:32
2nd. 00:11:37
Any other discussion all in favor, say aye, aye. 00:11:38
Item number. 00:11:42
5 right? 00:11:43
Number six, sorry. 00:11:45
But we just approved #5 though, right? 00:11:47
Sorry, I can't. I can't read with them glasses. Item number six is approval of right of way use permit for CB&S Bank to install a 00:11:50
steel balcony in the right of way along sidewalk at 21. 00:11:55
35 University Blvd. Mike, welcome. Yes, Sir. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. 00:12:00
So this is. This is a request to. 00:12:06
Install a balcony at 2135 which is just right on those side of. 00:12:08
22nd 00:12:14
It will be an 8 foot balcony. You'll have a canopy on the top. 00:12:17
Some columns that'll that'll be along the wall, it's it's going to be a freestanding unit. 00:12:22
But but it looked like it's a part of the building. 00:12:28
We we've had several discussions with the the developers representative and. 00:12:32
At this juncture, we're we're recommending approval. 00:12:37
Of the roadway use permit. 00:12:40
Mike, can we talk a little bit about? 00:12:43
A few of the issues that were there I I do want to make sure we. 00:12:46
Kind of address. I think you covered some of it, but I've learned a lot in this process over the last several days personally. 00:12:50
As a council person, but I know when. 00:12:56
Whenever someone wants to put something in the in the right of way on the sidewalk or if it's a balcony. 00:12:58
This is what we're dealing with, like a balcony. You've got to have this right away permit, right This, this right away permit. 00:13:05
The city. 00:13:12
Yeah, to approve in it and the council has to vote on. Right every time. Yes. And, you know, so. So what they're doing is they're 00:13:13
putting an an improvement. 00:13:17
In our public right away, and this is a way. 00:13:22
I think for the CD 2. 00:13:26
You know have some regulatory authority on this, but also. 00:13:27
That the the developer assumes the responsibility of that improvement in the right of way. 00:13:31
It relieves the city, the liability, all of it of the liability, if it if it needs to be removed for a public purpose or any 00:13:39
particular reason. 00:13:44
You know that is that is a burden of the, the developer or the. 00:13:49
The right away use permit holder. 00:13:54
So any maintenance or repairs or damage that that happens to to a balcony or. 00:13:58
Or a part of an infrastructure that's in a right of way use permit. 00:14:04
Is is not the CD's burden to repair. 00:14:08
In this particular, in this particular. 00:14:13
Right away use request. 00:14:17
There was some issues with some existing trees that are. 00:14:19
Along the University Blvd. And we all know that those trees have a great aesthetic value to our community. 00:14:24
So we've worked through some issues with that. 00:14:31
We we get concerned when we have. 00:14:34
You know columns and or? 00:14:37
For lack of a better word and obstruction that's placed in the pedestrian pathway, so we. 00:14:39
We take that into consideration in in looking at right away, use permits as well. 00:14:44
And the other thing that I think is important is the balcony has got to be removable. 00:14:50
Yeah, that if, if. 00:14:55
Main chances are probably it might not ever have to be taken down, but it's got to be removable for. 00:14:57
Whatever reason, like if a streetscaping plan. 00:15:04
Happened or something totally new. 00:15:07
Happen that we don't foresee right now it would it would have to be able to be removed. Yes Sir. That's that's right and that is 00:15:09
part of the agreement. 00:15:13
It's it's already in the the ordinance I guess is maybe the right terminology for that but the agreement. 00:15:17
That this entity will sign. 00:15:22
You know has those stipulations in that agree. 00:15:25
And the American Disability Act, the 88 compliance, that's another issue I know that we covered. 00:15:29
Just making sure that the. 00:15:34
Yeah. 00:15:36
That. 00:15:37
We're doing our best to make sure that's happening too, and I think that. 00:15:38
Petitioners have done that also, so I think that is very important so. 00:15:41
With that, I want to open up questions for committee members or other council people if y'all have any on this. 00:15:46
This won't be back. 00:15:51
No, Sir, it's not. 00:15:55
And the other problem. 00:15:57
No, I don't know that we have had any had any issues with any of them. 00:16:00
Now in fact, John, the most of the ones that I can think of. 00:16:06
Have been an aesthetic improvement to downtown. 00:16:10
I've I've gotten the chance to talk with the developer and the staff. 00:16:14
Prior, I don't have any additional questions, Mr. Lanier. 00:16:18
Mr. Lanier. 00:16:22
I would entertain a motion to move. 00:16:23
Moved and seconded all in favor, say aye. 00:16:26
Item. 00:16:29
Cash is what is it? Number six? Item number six. 00:16:30
Is approved is there. 00:16:33
Any other business to be brought before this committee today? Yes. 00:16:36
Sure. 00:16:40
City. 00:16:42
I could see it every day and I love seeing the new brick underneath of the old facade around the 1st. 00:16:44
OK. 00:16:52
It's really Are you going to keep that old brick or have? 00:16:53
We're still working through some of those issues because we have some new new brick front. 00:16:57
Maybe keep some of the operational side? 00:17:02
It's really cool. 00:17:05
I know it's probably not. I thought it would deal with an architecture instruction. 00:17:08
Yeah, I forgot that we talked about that. 00:17:13
Penny. 00:17:17
Might be worth something, you never know. 00:17:20
Those first job I worked there. Well I. 00:17:23
But before. 00:17:27
My mother worked in high school. 00:17:30
But before we adjourn, I just want to thank our our city staff. 00:17:33
For their professionalism and for. 00:17:39
How on this particular issue, I mean every issue usually I can't think of one that wasn't. It's always professional, It's they 00:17:43
handle themselves very well I think. 00:17:47
A lot of times our staff gets a lot of criticism from outside parties, but I. 00:17:51
But I well, I I witnessed through this particular issue that we kind of sat down. We. 00:17:57
Talked about it. 00:18:03
And I think we came to a a a solution that. 00:18:04
I think everybody can live with and I think that's. I think that's important. 00:18:07
And I do appreciate. 00:18:12
All of them for their hard work on this particular issue and every issue that we face here at the city. So I just want how long 00:18:14
you think we'll get our sidewalk back. 00:18:18
Around the first of the year. 00:18:23
That's true. 00:18:25
Anything else we need to discuss? 00:18:28
I would entertain. 00:18:31
A motion to adjourn. 00:18:32
Second, moved and seconded. Thank you, Mr. Tyner, and any other discussion all in favor. Say aye, aye. 00:18:34
We are adjourned. 00:18:40

Sure, That was it. 00:02:31
Sorry about that John. We, I think we got a motion we're approved, don't we, Brandy? 00:02:36
All right, item number 3. Authorization for the mayor to execute. 00:02:40
An intelligent transportation systems agreement without it, That's always important. 00:02:44
To aid and traffic management, Brian let us know how we're going to be more intelligent. 00:02:48
Ohh. 00:02:52
So. 00:02:54
We're we're actually doing this right now. We don't have an agreement in place, but. 00:02:55
Basically out on the city share resources like the fiber optic network, the traffic cameras. 00:02:59
They're monitoring traffic. 00:03:05
Dynamic messaging systems. 00:03:07
So those resources are being shared. 00:03:09
For the purpose of. 00:03:12
You know, collaborative effort to make to for the Traffic Management Center USA. 00:03:14
For, you know, monitoring and. 00:03:21
Operation of our traffic system, so basically this. 00:03:23
Puts what we're doing now, the the shared. 00:03:26
Both agencies using those resources and an agreement. 00:03:30
Questions. 00:03:36
Second moved and seconded. All in favor. Say aye, aye. 00:03:39
Item number three is approved item number #4. 00:03:43
Approval of Professional services agreement with Premier Service Company total not to exceed 9500 dollars. 00:03:46
Welcome. Thank you. You're not Jason, I am Jason today. Sorry about that. 00:03:54
We've got the B team, but this is to allow us to do some horizontal boring for. 00:03:59
Installation of conduit for fiber optic cable. 00:04:06
Our. 00:04:10
Fiber optic cable currently ends at Gene Stallings Ave. and the University Strip area, and we want to extend it about two blocks 00:04:11
further. 00:04:14
To Frank Thomas and that will allow us to directly wire three and hopefully a fourth camera that we've got in the area. 00:04:19
They're currently operating on Wi-Fi and it fails when the area is busy. 00:04:28
So. 00:04:33
Questions. 00:04:35
Where's the money coming from? 00:04:37
It's coming from the University Improvement University Blvd. Improvement Project. 00:04:39
And. 00:04:45
Gene Stallings and Frank. 00:04:47
Thomas, run parallel to each other, are you? 00:04:48
Connecting them or running it? 00:04:52
North-south, down them. We're we're gonna extend the fiber as it stands, the fiber traveling E goes as far as Gene Stallings, and 00:04:54
we wanna take it all the way to Frank. OK, Yeah. Where's it coming from? 00:05:01
It's coming from City Hall. 00:05:08
Downtown. 00:05:10
Down 7th St. or what? It goes along 6th St. 00:05:12
Six straight. 00:05:16
I'm fine with it. 00:05:21
Motion. 00:05:22
Moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye aye. Item number four is approved. 00:05:23
Item number 5 is authorization to enter into an agreement between City of Tuscaloosa and Westerville Company. 00:05:28
Regarding transfer and conveyance of assets, ownership and operation of North River Yacht Club low pressure sanitary sewer system. 00:05:35
Mr. Moore, mouthful. Good afternoon. It was a mouthful. Good afternoon. 00:05:43
This process we've been negotiating with Westerville for approximately 6 months. I know, Mr. Chairman, you've been involved since 00:05:47
the beginning of those discussions. 00:05:51
If approved, we would ask this go on the 27th Council agenda, but the nuts and bolts of it are in the Exhibit A that was included 00:05:57
in your packet. 00:06:00
Gives you the geographic specifics. And let me just note this is Todd specifically to the North River Yacht Club area 00:06:04
neighborhood. 00:06:07
This is Westervelt really only primary interest in the area and due to growth factors. 00:06:11
Overall maintenance, proximity to the lake. 00:06:17
We would like to to take over that system and it's been a very productive negotiation Westervelt will be offering. I think we're 00:06:20
approximately time, we're still about 162 five. 00:06:24
We're still white on that quote from Mickey's Backhoe for a couple of minor repairs we want to do before it's transferred. 00:06:29
But that doesn't seem to be any type of deal killer for any party. But we should have that well in advance of the 27th. 00:06:35
In addition, we do have a couple of Westervelt representatives here in case you do have any questions. 00:06:42
Brandon, one of the things that I, I think is important. 00:06:48
To note is. 00:06:51
There there's been some real good due diligence in this as as we've kind of. 00:06:53
Evaluated that system. I think this is. 00:06:58
A good thing for the city of Tuscaloosa for long term growth. And then they're also. 00:07:00
Going to provide us with. 00:07:05
Some capital or some money, right and reserve to help with any. 00:07:08
And that capital major was based off of the historic maintenance over the last 10 to 15 years from West results that gave us a 00:07:13
really good baseline. 00:07:17
Over that six months, you've had a full legal review, full engineering review, full water and sewer review. 00:07:21
Really want to thank Westerville. They provided enough data to our our team could go back and cross reference it from a water and 00:07:27
sewer and engineering standpoint. 00:07:30
Mr. Bob has done a fantastic job, Mr. Gardner and reviewing the document to make sure. 00:07:35
Both parties are protected and it and makes sense for. 00:07:39
For us to make. 00:07:42
Absolutely. Questions from committee members. 00:07:44
So we When would we take over? 00:07:47
I would assume it would be at the end of June, assuming estimate comes in or excuse me, the estimate is back after council 00:07:51
adoption. 00:07:54
So the the council action is. 00:08:02
Tied to. 00:08:06
An engineering study coming back? Well, no, A repair. 00:08:09
What during the study process, the review process of minor repair was discovered? We're just waiting on the estimate back. 00:08:13
I don't think it would exceed 50,000 somewhere probably more than 35,000 range but we're we should have that back in advance. OK. 00:08:20
So we're. 00:08:23
You know, I'm never. 00:08:27
We've done this we're. 00:08:29
We're taking over something under the ground that. 00:08:30
Is both an asset and a liability, right? 00:08:34
That might be fair. Yeah, it's an asset that's. 00:08:37
Capital that's been invested. 00:08:39
This liability and that's going to require maintenance and correct some some repair. 00:08:41
And then they're giving us. 00:08:45
A lump sum. 00:08:48
Yes, Sir. 00:08:49
To take it over. 00:08:50
And then? 00:08:51
Kimberly, do your. 00:08:53
Your folks. 00:08:54
Are y'all involved in assessing? 00:08:56
What the business? 00:09:01
Potential looks like going forward. 00:09:05
We've been involved, have been involved with this whole process, with evaluating. 00:09:08
What's out there? What it takes to maintain it. 00:09:13
The standard at which it was built. 00:09:15
I mean, we've been involved the whole time with it, so we agree with doing this and taking sober and then we agree with the amount 00:09:18
is fair. 00:09:21
For us to maintain it, this is very similar to what we did with the bearish trace pump station where. 00:09:24
And bear strikes. One they gave us one, we got the estimates for it and we're. 00:09:29
They gave us the calls and we're gonna get it up to standards. 00:09:34
This is a similar situation to where we're going to use the money to maintain it in that company. 00:09:37
And and I forgot to mention this, but Kimberly makes an important point I I would assume that. 00:09:41
Kimberly and her team would ask if those funds be essentially reserved for any improvements that may come up in the geographic 00:09:47
area out of that because that's where that baseline estimate came. Does that need to be, is that packaged in the action that will 00:09:52
be asked to approve? 00:09:57
Yes, Sir, we've we've. 00:10:02
We've talked that, we've spoken to accounting and finance and asked that be kind of. 00:10:04
Put off to the side for this particular. 00:10:08
OK. 00:10:10
The list stations in that area already belong to the city, correct? Right. This is just really the pipes it feeds that. 00:10:11
Salons. 00:10:18
Brendan, whatever this repair is, it's out there. It'll come out of this money. 00:10:20
Correct. From Westerville, right? Right. 00:10:23
Before and they've I think we're we're discussing a cost sharing right now and traditionally Mickey's backhoe has been the one 00:10:26
that's done primarily the work for the last few years so. 00:10:30
Waiting to get a sound estimate. I think we have essentially a not to exceed number, we're just hoping. 00:10:35
We had a very, very. 00:10:40
Conservative estment on the hot conservative estimate on the high end, I think it'll come back a little bit lower, but obviously 00:10:41
we'll get that validated from. 00:10:45
Testing. 00:10:50
And then to your point, Councillor Busby, essentially that council action would effectuate the agreement side of it. We would take 00:10:52
it and sort out the repair side and we would expect that to change hands. 00:10:56
End of June, You said end of June, early July. It seems like probably before the 4th. As long as there's no glitch in paperwork 00:11:01
and in in two weeks, we should be. 00:11:05
Voting on that. 00:11:10
Because the legal agreement, everything should be done. 00:11:12
Our request is that if it gets out of committee would be for it to go on council on the 27th. I think Mr. Robbins and Mr. Bobbitt 00:11:15
have basically ironed out the agreement and we're just essentially waiting on that estimate to finalize the number. 00:11:21
And then we'll be ready. Yes, Sir. 00:11:28
Other committee questions. 00:11:31
I don't have any other questions. I would entertain a motion to approve. 00:11:32
2nd. 00:11:37
Any other discussion all in favor, say aye, aye. 00:11:38
Item number. 00:11:42
5 right? 00:11:43
Number six, sorry. 00:11:45
But we just approved #5 though, right? 00:11:47
Sorry, I can't. I can't read with them glasses. Item number six is approval of right of way use permit for CB&S Bank to install a 00:11:50
steel balcony in the right of way along sidewalk at 21. 00:11:55
35 University Blvd. Mike, welcome. Yes, Sir. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. 00:12:00
So this is. This is a request to. 00:12:06
Install a balcony at 2135 which is just right on those side of. 00:12:08
22nd 00:12:14
It will be an 8 foot balcony. You'll have a canopy on the top. 00:12:17
Some columns that'll that'll be along the wall, it's it's going to be a freestanding unit. 00:12:22
But but it looked like it's a part of the building. 00:12:28
We we've had several discussions with the the developers representative and. 00:12:32
At this juncture, we're we're recommending approval. 00:12:37
Of the roadway use permit. 00:12:40
Mike, can we talk a little bit about? 00:12:43
A few of the issues that were there I I do want to make sure we. 00:12:46
Kind of address. I think you covered some of it, but I've learned a lot in this process over the last several days personally. 00:12:50
As a council person, but I know when. 00:12:56
Whenever someone wants to put something in the in the right of way on the sidewalk or if it's a balcony. 00:12:58
This is what we're dealing with, like a balcony. You've got to have this right away permit, right This, this right away permit. 00:13:05
The city. 00:13:12
Yeah, to approve in it and the council has to vote on. Right every time. Yes. And, you know, so. So what they're doing is they're 00:13:13
putting an an improvement. 00:13:17
In our public right away, and this is a way. 00:13:22
I think for the CD 2. 00:13:26
You know have some regulatory authority on this, but also. 00:13:27
That the the developer assumes the responsibility of that improvement in the right of way. 00:13:31
It relieves the city, the liability, all of it of the liability, if it if it needs to be removed for a public purpose or any 00:13:39
particular reason. 00:13:44
You know that is that is a burden of the, the developer or the. 00:13:49
The right away use permit holder. 00:13:54
So any maintenance or repairs or damage that that happens to to a balcony or. 00:13:58
Or a part of an infrastructure that's in a right of way use permit. 00:14:04
Is is not the CD's burden to repair. 00:14:08
In this particular, in this particular. 00:14:13
Right away use request. 00:14:17
There was some issues with some existing trees that are. 00:14:19
Along the University Blvd. And we all know that those trees have a great aesthetic value to our community. 00:14:24
So we've worked through some issues with that. 00:14:31
We we get concerned when we have. 00:14:34
You know columns and or? 00:14:37
For lack of a better word and obstruction that's placed in the pedestrian pathway, so we. 00:14:39
We take that into consideration in in looking at right away, use permits as well. 00:14:44
And the other thing that I think is important is the balcony has got to be removable. 00:14:50
Yeah, that if, if. 00:14:55
Main chances are probably it might not ever have to be taken down, but it's got to be removable for. 00:14:57
Whatever reason, like if a streetscaping plan. 00:15:04
Happened or something totally new. 00:15:07
Happen that we don't foresee right now it would it would have to be able to be removed. Yes Sir. That's that's right and that is 00:15:09
part of the agreement. 00:15:13
It's it's already in the the ordinance I guess is maybe the right terminology for that but the agreement. 00:15:17
That this entity will sign. 00:15:22
You know has those stipulations in that agree. 00:15:25
And the American Disability Act, the 88 compliance, that's another issue I know that we covered. 00:15:29
Just making sure that the. 00:15:34
Yeah. 00:15:36
That. 00:15:37
We're doing our best to make sure that's happening too, and I think that. 00:15:38
Petitioners have done that also, so I think that is very important so. 00:15:41
With that, I want to open up questions for committee members or other council people if y'all have any on this. 00:15:46
This won't be back. 00:15:51
No, Sir, it's not. 00:15:55
And the other problem. 00:15:57
No, I don't know that we have had any had any issues with any of them. 00:16:00
Now in fact, John, the most of the ones that I can think of. 00:16:06
Have been an aesthetic improvement to downtown. 00:16:10
I've I've gotten the chance to talk with the developer and the staff. 00:16:14
Prior, I don't have any additional questions, Mr. Lanier. 00:16:18
Mr. Lanier. 00:16:22
I would entertain a motion to move. 00:16:23
Moved and seconded all in favor, say aye. 00:16:26
Item. 00:16:29
Cash is what is it? Number six? Item number six. 00:16:30
Is approved is there. 00:16:33
Any other business to be brought before this committee today? Yes. 00:16:36
Sure. 00:16:40
City. 00:16:42
I could see it every day and I love seeing the new brick underneath of the old facade around the 1st. 00:16:44
OK. 00:16:52
It's really Are you going to keep that old brick or have? 00:16:53
We're still working through some of those issues because we have some new new brick front. 00:16:57
Maybe keep some of the operational side? 00:17:02
It's really cool. 00:17:05
I know it's probably not. I thought it would deal with an architecture instruction. 00:17:08
Yeah, I forgot that we talked about that. 00:17:13
Penny. 00:17:17
Might be worth something, you never know. 00:17:20
Those first job I worked there. Well I. 00:17:23
But before. 00:17:27
My mother worked in high school. 00:17:30
But before we adjourn, I just want to thank our our city staff. 00:17:33
For their professionalism and for. 00:17:39
How on this particular issue, I mean every issue usually I can't think of one that wasn't. It's always professional, It's they 00:17:43
handle themselves very well I think. 00:17:47
A lot of times our staff gets a lot of criticism from outside parties, but I. 00:17:51
But I well, I I witnessed through this particular issue that we kind of sat down. We. 00:17:57
Talked about it. 00:18:03
And I think we came to a a a solution that. 00:18:04
I think everybody can live with and I think that's. I think that's important. 00:18:07
And I do appreciate. 00:18:12
All of them for their hard work on this particular issue and every issue that we face here at the city. So I just want how long 00:18:14
you think we'll get our sidewalk back. 00:18:18
Around the first of the year. 00:18:23
That's true. 00:18:25
Anything else we need to discuss? 00:18:28
I would entertain. 00:18:31
A motion to adjourn. 00:18:32
Second, moved and seconded. Thank you, Mr. Tyner, and any other discussion all in favor. Say aye, aye. 00:18:34
We are adjourned. 00:18:40
