Utility Rate Study on Sumner Council Agenda Tonight

East Valley Highway Resurfacing Bid Award for almost $1.26 million on consent agenda

Updating a contract on water, storm and wastewater utility rates is one of the items on the Sumner City Council agenda tonight.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

In 2010, the city contracted with FCS Group to prepare a revenue rate study for the three utilities. Based on that study, the council  chose a levelized approach to rate increases.  Rate increases were needed because of capítal improvement projects.

City staff is recommending a contract with FCS Group to conduct an update of the plan for $31,570 . The results, including  assumptions,  findings and recommendations,  will be brought back to council  at a later date.

On the consent agenda tonight are

-         East Valley Highway Resurfacing Bid Award for almost $1.26 million

-         White River Trail Bid Award for about $332,000.

-         Parker Road/Puyallup Watershed Culvert Improvements Bid Award for about $214,000.

-         An agreement for Pierce County to restripe some Sumner streets for about $30,000.

-         Business claims in the amount of almost $866,700.

A resolution on council rules also is listed on the agenda, along with reports by the council, city administrator and mayor.
