Staff recommends approval of acceptance of ownership and maintenance of the Oakridge Mobile Home Park lift station.
The residents of Oakridge Mobile Home Park requested the City to consider taking ownership, operation, and maintenance of the lift station for their community. Staff inspected the lift station and will require upgrades as a condition of acceptance. The estimated cost of the upgrades is $22,000.00. Oakridge Condominium Association is agreeable to funding the necessary work. The contractor they will employ to complete the upgrade is one that has performed work for the City in a satisfactory and professional manner. The Oakridge Condominium Association will prepare a legal description for the lift station parcel which will then be reviewed by the city attorney, including appropriate title work. After recording, these will be formally presented to the Commission for acceptance. As is our practice, a formal warranty deed and bill of sale will also be presented to the Commission to convey the lift station and property to the City.
1. Authorize staff to accept ownership and operation of the lift station located in Oakridge Mobile
Home Park, or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
In the short term, the City will incur additional costs of electric service for the lift station. This cost will be absorbed by the wastewater fund in its normal operating budget and will be offset by the wastewater revenue collections from Oakridge Mobile Home Park customers. Over the long term, the City will incur repair and replacement costs for the lift station. These costs will be funded from repair and replacement funds, as appropriate.
