esWe have spoken with the city for an updated time line for this project. Right now we are still a little unclear about the timeline since the timeline given to us in April do not match up with the minutes of City Council.
In April, I was given the following schedule:
April 24 – City Council authorizes final plans and specs
July 3 – City Council advertises plans and specs for bid
July 24 – Bids are opened
August 14 – City Council awards contract
60 day construction period
However, as of the August 14 City Council meeting, it appears that only the plans and specs have been approved and a date has been set to create the tax assessment district on September 11, 2018 during the next City Council meeting. This is good news because now we have something official to point at as evidence for progress.
After this meeting, the district will be created and then then they move forward with obtaining bids for the project. Once the City Council awards the bid, then construction begins. What we are still unclear about is the timeline from the creation of the district to the beginning of construction. Currently we are seeking this information.
Here is an excerpt of the reason this is behind schedule from our contact with the city:
"...[t]hey are allowing me to move several steps concurrently since I fell behind on getting the necessary modifications made by the engineer to the preliminary report. I am sure it is because I am unfamiliar with the process, but it seems that the Silverhawk HOA providing the preliminary created questions about what steps had been met and what remained."
We are monitoring the meeting minutes and will provide an update after the September meeting.
Below we are providing you with the documents from City Council regarding the matter.
