CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 16

Meeting Date: June 13, 2006

Prepared by: Public Works: M. Sullivan

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution approving and authorizing the City Manager to execute a Consultant Services Agreement for Fiscal Year 2006/07 with Diaz, Diaz & Boyd, Inc. in an amount not to exceed $60,000 for appraisal services.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
As the City is progressing through the development phase on its way to build-out, the construction of the necessary infrastructure is of the utmost importance. Over the last ten years the City has invested millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements. With the continuing commercial and residential developments, this infrastructure investment is expected to continue for many years. Acquisition of necessary right-of-way/property in a timely and professional manner is one of the major components in the infrastructure investment for timely completion of any Capital Improvement Project.

The City has been contracting solely with Associated Right of Way Services, Inc. for several years. Due to the heavy demand for appraisal services and negotiations not only by our City but by other public entities there are occasions that an additional source for obtaining only appraisals is desirable.

Diaz, Diaz & Boyd Inc. provides appraisal services only. There are times when City staff enters into negotiations directly with the vested property owner on various Capital Improvement Projects instead of contracting the negotiations out to our full service right-of-way company. In these instances it maybe advantageous to use Diaz, Diaz & Boyd, Inc. to expedite the negotiation process by City staff.

Staff recommends approving an additional consultant for appraisal services in order to spread the workload and expedite acquiring the necessary right-of-way from vested property owners by City staff.

FISCAL IMPACT
The costs associated with right-of-way acquisitions and appraisals are funded through the individual CIP projects or developers that need assistance with right-of-way acquisitions.
