Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

Staff has prepared a draft Ordinance (Attachment A) which makes changes to Title 13 of the Olathe Municipal Code (Water and Sewer).  The changes are made to refine the assessment and collection of cost of damage to City water assets.

 

The Ordinance makes two substantive changes.  First, it outlines water asset types that are frequently destroyed, damaged, obstructed, or interfered with. Second, it stipulates that the total amount of the expense to repair or replace assets will be charged to the violator.

 

This ordinance aligns with Title 14 of the Olathe Municipal Code (Sewer Use Regulations).

 

Staff intends to return to Council on June 4, 2019 for consideration of the Ordinance.
