(Amended by Ordinance No. 190132, effective October 16, 2020.)
A. The Local Improvement District Administrator will prepare and file a Resolution of Intent for the City Council’s consideration subsequent to any of the following:

B. The Resolution of Intent will include the following: the name or designation of the improvement; the location of the improvement; a map or clear description of the local improvement district boundary; the general character and scope of the improvement; a preliminary estimate of the total cost of the local improvement; the proposed assessment methodology; the proportion of funding to be borne by property owners and other sources, if applicable; the designated Responsible Bureau if the project scope is not addressed by Section 17.08.010; a statement of whether the City Council intends to construct the improvement; and direction to the Local Improvement District Administrator to do one of the following:
1. Initiate formation proceedings on the proposed local improvement district; or
2. Suspend proceedings on the proposed local improvement district; or

The City Council may direct that the engineering and construction work will be done in whole or in part by the City, by a contract, by direct employment of labor, by another governmental agency, or by any combination thereof. Projects partially or fully funded by local improvement district revenue will be subject to competitive bidding.

G. If the City Council passes a Resolution of Intent to terminate the process for forming the local improvement district or considers but fails to pass a resolution to initiate local improvement district formation proceedings, no further action will be taken by the Local Improvement District Administrator on the local improvement district for a period of 6 months, other than actions to close the project.
