The City Council of the City of
Taylor met on February 6, 2006, at City Hall, 400 Porter St., Taylor, Texas. Mayor Donald Hill declared a quorum and called the special meeting to
order at 6:00 p.m. with the following present:
Council Member Benito Gonzales City
Manager, Frank Salvato
Council Member Rod Hortenstine City
Clerk, Susan Brock
Council Member Ella Jez City
Attorney, Ted Hejl
REGULAR AGENDA –
REVIEW/DISCUSS & CONSIDER/ACTION:
CONSIDER RELOCATION OF
WASTEWATER LINE RELATED TO MALLARD PARK PHASE II OFF SITE DRAINAGE.
Mr. Salvato presented a request from
the Mallard Park developer Mr. John Biggar to reconsider changes to the off
site drainage work previously addressed by Council. Since the original plan
was derived, additional costs have surfaced related to the cost of relocating
the existing waste water line due to changes in the engineering design drawings.
Mr. Biggar is requesting that the City proceed with recording the plat with no
additional requirement of bond funds from him. Mr. Hejl’s recommendation to
Council is to require a performance bond with regards all work yet to be
completed. Council member Hortenstine moved to require Mr. Biggar to submit a
bond, in the amount of $300,000, to the City to cover all outstanding punchlist
items, as well as all off-site (storm drainage and wastewater line relocations)
improvements; the City will also contribute an additional $20,000 towards the
completion of the off-site improvements (specifically the wastewater line
relocation aspect of the project) and agrees to record the plat with only ten
(10) lots approved for permitting and with all improvements to be completed
within 120 days of final plat approval. Council member Jez seconded the
motion. VOTE: Four voted AYE. Motion passed.
With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:35 p.m.
R. Hill, Mayor
Susan Brock, City Clerk
