Consideration and Adoption of Ordinance No. 2023-23: An ordinance of the Flagstaff City Council authorizing the acquisition of real property interests for a fiber network as a betterment to the Rio de Flag Flood Control Project; providing for delegation of authority, repeal of conflicting ordinances, severability, clerical corrections, and establishing an effective date.
  1. Read Ordinance No. 2023-23 by title only for the final time
  2. City Clerk reads Ordinance No. 2023-23 by title only (if approved above)
  3. Adopt Ordinance No. 2023-23
Executive Summary:
As a betterment to the Rio de Flag flood control project, fiber conduit will be placed within the channel and box culvert corridor in areas identified by the Information Technology department. The majority of fiber will be placed within existing right of way; however, within the channel and box culvert corridor outside of existing right of way, the City does not currently have the rights to place fiber. This ordinance authorizes acquisition of fiber easements on those private property parcels within the Rio de Flag flood control project corridor.
Financial Impact:
The easements needed for the Rio de Flag flood control project already heavily burden the parcels, the additional fiber easement takes are expected to cost no more than 5% of the fee simple value of the property. The cost for the easements will be paid by Information Technology, Account Number 001-01-014-6312-1-XXXX.
