RIGGINS CITY COUNCIL
August 23, 2016 – 9:00 a.m.
This Special meeting of the Riggins City Council was called to order by Mayor McClure. Councilors present were Miller, Wilson, Friend, and Akins.
The purpose of this Special meeting was to review the ballot language for the proposed Resort Tax issue to be voted on in November, and to discuss a waiver request.
RIGGINS WHITEWATER MARKET – WAIVER REQUEST: Mayor McClure reported that John Llewellyn is considering building a new store in their empty lot. Councilor Wilson was able to contact Llewellyn via phone to discuss his hookup fee waiver request, and what he was proposing. Llewellyn stated he would like to know if the City would consider helping with city-related fees on the development, including water meters and incidental connection fees.
There are three (3) Sewer Hookups paid on the property (current cost of $22,500). After reviewing the Sewer Connection EU Schedule, it was determined that an additional 4.5 EU in hookup fees would be required. Councilor Miller stated the Council will need more detailed specs on the project to determine water hookup fees, parking lot drainage, and requirements for fire suppression.
Motion was made by Wilson to waive the additional Sewer Hookup fees for the current store project; and that waiver of Water related fees be considered once Llewellyn has more details on the project; and that any additional development of the property beyond the grocery store would be addressed by the Council following a review of specific development plans; seconded by Akins. Voting yea, Wilson, Akins, Friend and Miller. No nays; motion carried.
Council discussed the Sewer Connection EU Schedule, and associated Hookup Fee. Council will discuss in more detail at future meeting.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 10:35 a.m.
