[ARCHIVED] Town Council Meeting Update - April 4

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 the day after every Town Council Meeting.


Public Hearings - Continued from March 21

2022 Annual Budget Revisions 
Budget adjustments for the current year are submitted to Town Council for consideration several times per year, as needed. Adjustments fall into two categories, carryovers and supplemental amendments. Carryovers are the re-appropriation of unspent, budgeted funds from the prior year into the current year; they include multi-year capital projects for which the full project cost is budgeted in the first year. Supplemental amendments consist of additional or new appropriation requests that were not anticipated at the time when the budget was developed. Town Council approved via ordinance adjustments that included $34,984,623 in carryover expenditures, $917,500 in supplemental expenditures and $3,500 in supplemental revenue.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)


First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for April 18

Tanterra Development Stroh Gulch Improvements Agreement Amendment
This proposed ordinance would amend an existing intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town of Parker and the Mile High Flood District (MHFD) regarding improvements to Stroh Gulch at the proposed Tanterra development. An IGA between the Town and MHFD is necessary to transfer the developer funding to the District and memorialize the improvements that will be designed and constructed by the MHFD. The IGA obligates the MHFD to construct the improvements with Developer funding provided by the Town. This amendment codifies the construction costs for these developer-funded improvements that will be constructed by MHFD at no cost to the Town.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Municipal Court Clerk Services Agreement
This proposed ordinance would approve an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the Town of Parker and City of Lone Tree to provide for temporary coverage of each organization’s Municipal Court through the sharing of court clerks on an as-needed basis to improve and ensure continuity of services for both communities. The recent vacancy of the Town of Parker’s Municipal Court Administrator identified a need for backup staff for the Municipal Court to ensure continuation of service. This IGA would allow both organizations to cooperate to provide services and coverage when needed.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)

Contracts Over $100,000
Six contracts over the amount of $100,000 were awarded by Town Council: 

1. A contract with Vance Brothers, Inc. in the amount of $1,831,338.09 for the 2022 Townwide Pavement Preservation Program. Work for this annual project in 2022 will include, but is not limited to, microsurfacing treatment on four collector streets and slurry seal treatment on local streets in 29 residential filings and one Town parking lot. 

2. A contract with CORE Electric Cooperative in the amount of $198,860.20 for services related to the relocation and/or replacement of electrical facilities related to the Mainstreet North Sidewalk Project (Victorian Drive to PACE Center Drive). This project will replace the existing narrow 5-ft brick paver sidewalk with a 12-ft concrete section with trees and pedestrian lighting to match the existing sidewalks along the downtown area.

3. A contract with Carahsoft in the amount of $402,000 over five years for the purchase of licenses needed to procure the Zoom UCaaS Phone service for the Town. This will replace the Town’s current end-of-life phone system and will provide many of the features of a modern UCaaS phone system. This contract amounts to an annual impact of $80,400.

4. A contract modification with Felsburg Holt & Ullevig in the amount of $97,465.00 for the Cottonwood Drive Widening Project. Completion for this project was originally set for late November 2021. However, due to several material supply chain issues, additional work and multiple utility conflicts, the completion date has been extended into May 2022. Consequently, FHU’s construction management, inspection and testing services have been extended and additional funding is needed to complete the project. The revised total contract amount is $715,125.

5. A contract with Stanley Consultants in the amount of $107,000 for the construction management, inspection and material testing services for the 2022 Townwide Roadway Reconstruction Program. Work for this annual project in 2022 will include, but is not limited to, removal and reconstruction of Plaza Drive from Twenty Mile Road to Dransfeldt Road.

6. A contract with Central Square Technologies in the amount of $67,470 for the upgrade of the Central Square records management system (RMS) currently used by the Police Department. This project will upgrade the server operating systems to the latest version and will migrate a remaining classic component to a web version. These items will allow the department to take advantage of continuing version upgrades and transition the RMS to a fully web-based application. This contract is a sales order pursuant to an existing agreement that was over $100,000.

Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Barrington, Diak, Hefta, Hendreks, Poage, Rivero)
