Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes payment for utility relocation work by American Electric Power, AT&T, Spectrum (aka Time Warner), Windstream, and other utilities and/or companies the utilities contract to perform the utility relocation work for them, in an amount up to $250,000.00 for the Pedestrian Safety Improvements - Waggoner Rd SUP - Broad St to Chapel Stone project.

The Public Service Department is engaged in the Pedestrian Safety Improvements - Waggoner Rd SUP - Broad St to Chapel Stone project. Project work includes a shared use path from Broad Street to Chapel Stone Road on the east side of Waggoner Road requiring some right-of-way acquisition. A two-way left turn lane is to be installed between Arbor Rose Way and Dolmen Drive. Waggoner Road will also be resurfaced.

In the course of effecting roadway improvements, it is sometimes necessary to force the relocation of utilities from privately held easements or place overhead utilities underground to promote public health, safety, and welfare, including the economic development of the City. It is necessary to move utilities to complete this project. Council previously approved Ordinance 1389-2016 on 6/6/16 in the amount of $60,000.00 for utility reimbursements for this project, which is insufficient to complete the work, and additional funding is required.
The funding request for utilities relocation reimbursement is based upon estimates from the utilities. The utilities, or companies the utilities contract to perform the work for them, will invoice the City for actual costs incurred in relocating the utilities. The amount needed may exceed the amount requested in this ordinance. Additional legislation will be submitted by the Department of Public Service if additional funds are needed to complete the relocations.
