RESOLUTION:

Consider approval of a resolution to obtain a temporary easement from the BLM for a debris basin.

 

City Manager Gary Esplin presented the resolution to obtain a temporary easement from the BLM to construct some improvements on BLM property.  He described the location and provided a history regarding the issues in the area.  The City is prepared to secure the easement and build a detention basin on the west side of the street to collect the runoff water. 

 

Mayor Pike clarified the location is behind The Learning Center.

 

Public Works Director Cameron Cutler showed the location on a map.  He explained 16,500 cubic yards of dirt was removed from the BLM property after which the property was leveled.  He then clarified some of the issues in the area and explained what issues the detention basin should solve.  Because of where the drainage is, the low spot is lower that Tonaquint Drive.  Other piping can be installed to help with the water as well.

 

City Manager Gary Esplin commented the State will look at the permit that was issued as part of excavation of the road, but will not get involved unless they believe the City or developer has created a problem.  The BLM could grant the property to the City but it would have to go through a fairly long process. 

 

Mary Sanders provided a handout including a letter from BeeHive Cottages and photos of the flooding and thanked the Council for trying to mitigate the issues.   She explained that flooding was not an issue prior to the road being developed and what happens in the area when it rains after which she asked the Council to make this a priority.
