Public Works Director Scott Lanphier introduced the item. Management Analyst II Anthony Smith presented the staff report.
In response to questions by CM Woerner, Mr. Smith said the impact per parcel going to the full-service level would depend upon how the City chose to fund the program and how the cost would be allocated to commercial and residential parcels. City Manager Marc Roberts confirmed that staff was requesting to do more exploration of various funding methods.
In response to questions from CM Woerner, Mr. Roberts clarified that if the City didn't move forward with the item, the impact could be flooding, private property damage, public property and assets impacted, and fines related to regulatory compliance.
CM Woerner favored exploration of what would be needed to avoid issues and what would be needed to provide actual levels of service and how that matched to funding levels.
In response to CM Woerner, Mr. Roberts suggested bringing related assets up to a certain standard and then having the flood control district be responsible for maintenance of the streams going forward.
In response to questions by CM Munro regarding the financial outlook slide, Mr. Smith clarified that staff's estimates represented ongoing costs.
In response to questions by Mayor Marchand, Mr. Smith confirmed that a Stormwater System Enterprise fund did exist and staff recommended transferring all applicable costs to that fund instead of allocating them elsewhere in the budget in order to accurately reflect the funding and expenses.
