[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - Feb. 18

Town Council Meeting Update

Want to know what happened at the most recent Town Council Meeting? We have you covered! Recaps will be posted on each Wednesday following that week’s Town Council Meeting.


Public Hearings

  • Legal Age for Tobacco or Vapor Products
    Town Council passed an ordinance that updates the Parker Municipal Code to be consistent with the changes to Federal law that went into effect on Dec. 20, 2019, making it illegal to sell tobacco products to any individual under the age of 21.
    Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for March 2

  • Cherry Creek Interceptor Project
    This proposed ordinance proposes the dedication of sanitary sewer main easements to Parker Water and Sanitation District (PWSD) over Town-owned properties. These easements are being requested for construction of a major sanitary sewer main known as the Cherry Creek Interceptor project that will stretch 2.5 miles between PWSD’s South Water Reclamation Facility, located in the Joint-Use Facility off Twenty Mile Road, and the North Water Reclamation Facility, located on Woodman Road. The proposed alignment for this new line will generally follow Cherry Creek in order to avoid extensive disruptions to Town roadways. Much of this alignment crosses Town-owned open space parcels or drainage facilities, over which PWSD is requesting approximately four acres of sanitary sewer main easement.
    Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

  • Abandoned Vehicle Ordinance
    This proposed ordinance would amend the Parker Municipal Code to provide a process for enforcement action to be taken when vehicles, that are considered to be abandoned vehicles, are parked long-term in public parking lots. The proposed amendments would add a definition for vehicles “abandoned on a public parking lot,” include sections related to vehicles abandoned on a public parking lot under prohibited acts, and provide a 24-hour timeline subsequent to a notice of violation under these Sections before enforcement action is taken. An additional amendment would also allow for the Chief of Police, or designee, to make a determination when a major weather-related event has created an exception to the stated timelines.
    Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

  • Lemon Gulch Drainage and Flood Control Improvements
    The Town and the Mile High Flood District (MHFD) are jointly managing the design and construction of the fee-in-lieu capital improvement project to stabilize Lemon Gulch downstream of Crowfoot Valley Road. This proposed amendment to the existing intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town and the MHFD is necessary to provide additional funds from both entities to the capital improvement project. Additional funds are necessary to account for the reconfiguration of the upstream and downstream tie-in drop structures, as well as to pay for administrative and inspection services during the full length of construction. Reconfiguration of the tie-in points were crucial to ensure additional stress was not incurred on the existing system before the upstream and downstream reaches can be stabilized.
    Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements

  • Transit Shelter Agreement - Third Amendment
    Town Council approved a temporary extension of the existing transit shelter agreement with Outdoor Promotions, LLC, from an expiration date of Feb. 29, 2020 to March 29, 2020. This temporary extension will maintain the existing contract in place for a short time to allow staff to update Town Council at the Feb. 24 Study Session and receive direction. The Town has had an agreement with Outdoor Promotions since 2000 that permit the company to build and maintain transit shelters at certain bus stops located within the Town limits. There are currently 21 bus shelters throughout Town that this vendor has built and maintained since 2000.
    Approved 5-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg)
