City Council Agenda
Meeting Date: 10/01/2013  
Subject:    WSDOT Construction Easement for SR 167 Bridge Project
Presenter: Mark Palmer
Department: Public Works  

Information
Recommended Action
Authorize the City Manager to grant the Washington State Department of Transportation a temporary construction easement on City-owned property in a form substantially as approved by the City Attorney.
Background
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is in the final design stages of a project to replace the eastern steel girder bridge on SR-167 (Meridian) with a new bridge west of the current concrete bridge. WSDOT has determined that a small portion of a City-owned parcel will be needed for temporary construction uses to complete the project, and has presented an offer of compensation for that use. WSDOT has provided a thorough, professional appraisal of the fair market value for this temporary use. WSDOT will address any damages to the property which may occur during this use by ensuring that the property is restored to its existing condition.

Summary of Proposal
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has offered compensation to the City for use of a small portion of City-owned property during construction of the SR-167 bridge replacement project.

Council options include:
1. Authorize City Manager to accept the WSDOT offer.
2. Request the City Manager to negotiate further with WSDOT on compensation and return to Council for approval.
3. Refuse to accept the offer without further negotiation. Proceeding in this manner would likely subject the City to legal action relative to eminent domain.
