Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
The following legislation authorizes the City Attorney's Office, Real Estate Division, to hire professional services and to negotiate with property owners to acquire the various property rights necessary to complete the Bridge Rehabilitation - Godown Road Culvert project.

The Department of Public service is engaged in the Bridge Rehabilitation - Godown Road Culvert project. The project will replace the existing stone culvert carrying Godown Road over an unnamed stream and the adjacent timber pedestrian bridge located 0.5 miles north of Bethel Road. The new structure will be a 4-sided precast concrete box culvert with enough width to accommodate a new shared use path along the west side of the roadway.

The cost to acquire the right-of-way needed to complete the project is estimated at $75,000.00. If the cost to acquire the needed right-of-way should exceed this estimate, additional legislation will be submitted to Council requesting the needed funding.

The Department of Public service is currently finalizing construction plans and is prepared to authorize right-of-way acquisition pending passage of this funding legislation.

Funds in the amount of $75,000.00 are budgeted and available for this project in Fund 7704, the Streets and Highways Bond Fund, Project P530301-100068 (Bridge Rehabilitation - Godown Road Bridge).

Emergency action is requested to provide necessary right-of-way acquisition funding and prevent unnecessary delays in the Department of Public Service's Capital Improvement Program.
