Mossbank Emergency Project

 

On August 21, 2007, the City Council approved an emergency storm drain repair of a large 36” corrugated metal pipe (CMP) located at the end of the cul-de-sac on Mossbank Drive near Basswood Avenue .  The City Council’s approval included the transfer of an additional $170,000 from the General fund to the Water Quality and Flood Protection fund to finance the emergency project.

The CMP system provides for the drainage of approximately 150 acres of residential development.  The original project began when a defect was discovered that required a minor repair prior to the planned future lining of the CMP.  During the course of the minor repair, contractors discovered that the CMP was completely worn through and the canyon slope had changed abnormally; thus requiring the removal and replacement of the CMP.

Upon the recommendation of Staff and the City Attorney and with the required 4/5’s vote, the City Council determined that an emergency exists enabling the City to expedite the process necessary to procure the necessary equipment, services and supplies.  This finding was based on the fact that a clear and imminent danger existed, requiring immediate action to prevent or mitigate the loss or impairment of life, health, and property.
