Review of ROW Ordinance Amendments
The right-of-way ordinance has not been updated for several years. The ordinance outlines the requirements for a number of utilities to complete work in the right-of-way. Many companies, not all, also have franchise agreements with the city but given changes being discussed at the Legislature, more will likely be able to use our right-of-way without a franchise agreement. As a result of this, it is important that we update our ordinance to ensure that the best practices for protecting the right-of-way are outlined in the ordinance for these companies to follow. When it comes to these types of requirements, we have worked with Brian Grogan with Moss and Barnett. Included for your review are the proposed changes being recommended. Brian Grogan will also be a part of our meeting to provide an overview of the proposed changes and to answer any questions.
