Governor Jared Polis issued an executive order allocating $270 million for local governments that did not receive a direct distribution of funds under the CARES Act, including Douglas County, Parker, Lone Tree, Castle Pines, Castle Rock and Larkspur. The purpose of this intergovernmental agreement is to establish the structure for reimbursement of the eligible expenses incurred by the governmental parties in compliance with the CARES Act.

CONSENT AGENDA

First Readings - Second Readings Scheduled for Aug. 17


Restrictions on Use of Motorized Vehicles and Recreational Vehicles
This proposed ordinance would amend the Parker Municipal Code to allow the use of motor vehicles and recreational vehicles on public property, parks, trails and sidewalks within the Town, by Town Council resolution, and expand the exception for public employees or agents maintaining, repairing or patrolling the properties, to those of special/metropolitan districts and homeowner/business owners associations.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Motions, Contracts, Resolutions, Proclamations, Agreements


Use of Golf Carts and Off-Highway Vehicles on Public Property
Town Council passed resolution authorizing the use of off-highway vehicles and golf carts on certain sidewalks, trails and at-grade crossings by a registered homeowner association, business owner association, metropolitan district or special district for maintenance activities with the possession of a permit. This resolution authorizes the use of these vehicles on any sidewalk adjacent to private property; any sidewalk adjacent to any public street that is not a state highway; trails; and any at-grade crossings of roadways within the Town. The right to use those vehicles is limited to maintenance activities by a registered homeowner association, business owner association, metropolitan district or special district, who must submit and obtain a permit from the Chief of Police or his designee for the vehicle.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Compark Boulevard Snow Route Right-of-Way Acquisition  
Town Council passed a resolution resulting in the acceptance of a right-of-way conveyance from Douglas County for Compark Boulevard from the Upland Drive intersection to th Prairie Trail Drive intersection. This 700-foot section of Compark Boulevard is part of the Town’s snow  operations route but was previously outside the Town’s boundary. This gap was evaluated, and Town staff decided it would be beneficial from a jurisdictional perspective to pursue the conveyance of this roadway section from Douglas County. Town staff commenced a quit claim deed process with Douglas County to convey this right-of-way to the Town. The Board of County Commissioners approved the quit claim deed on Nov. 12, 2019. The process to annex this roadway will now occur following the acceptance of the conveyance to clean up the jurisdictional issues.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Looking Glass Filing No. 1 Slope Easement Acquisition 
Town Council passed a resolution resulting in the acceptance of a slope easement conveyance covering roadway improvements proposed with the final plat for portions of Tracts F and G, Looking Glass Filing No. 1. Slope easements are necessary to ensure the long-term operation and maintenance of Town roadways when there is a significant grade change outside of the right-of-way. These easements ensure the adjacent property owner does not make any modifications near the road that could adversely affect the roadway template without permission from the Town. The Engineering Department reviewed and approved the construction drawings for the roadway improvements associated with an approved Final Plat for Looking Glass Filing No. 1. Since the grading is proposed outside of the limits of the plat, the easement needed to be dedicated by separate document.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Parker Adventist Hospital Drainage Easement Acquisition 
Town Council passed a resolution resulting in the acceptance of a drainage easement conveyance covering drainage improvements proposed with the site plan for a portion of Lot 1, Crown Point Filing No. 1, 28th Amendment. Drainage easements are necessary to ensure the long-term operation and maintenance of drainage infrastructure to minimize flooding and protect the quality of stormwater runoff.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Town Administrator Amended and Restated Employment Agreement 
Town Council passed a resolution resulting in an amended and restated employment agreement and compensation for the Town Administrator. The Town Council participated in the performance evaluation for the Town Administrator. The resolution provides for a 4.05% merit increase.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Town Attorney Employment Agreement 
Town Council passed a resolution resulting in an amended employment agreement and compensation for the Town Attorney. The Town Council participated in the performance evaluation for the Town Attorney. The resolution provides for a 4.5% merit increase.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Town Council Liaison Policy 
Town Council passed a resolution that sets a policy clarifying the roles and responsibilities of Councilmembers regarding external, independent agencies and internal Town departments. Annually, the Mayor and Town Council review liaison assignments and collaborate to adjust the assignments as necessary. The purpose of a formal policy is to document the process the Councilmembers have been following in practice. The policy provides clarity and provides guidance to newly elected Councilmembers regarding the Council liaison process. Staff discussed the policy with Town Council during the July 13, 2020 Study Session and incorporated their comments into the final policy document as presented.
Approved 6-0 (In Favor: Diak, Lewis, Poage, Rivero, Toborg, Williams)

Constitution Week Proclamation 
Town Council made a proclamation designating the week of Sept. 17 through 23, 2020 as Constitution Week in the Town of Parker. The proclamation urges all citizens to study the Constitution and reflect on the privilege of being an American with all the rights and responsibilities which that privilege involves.

Contracts Over $100,000
One contract over the amount of $100,000 was awarded by Town Council:
1. A professional services agreement with Stanley Consultants, Inc., in the amount of $115,608 for final design services related to the Parker Road Sidewalk Project (Twenty Mile to Hess). In August 2019, Stanley Consultants, Inc., completed the 30% preliminary design for this project, and the plans were shelved. This design was for a multi-use trail/sidewalk on the west side of Parker Road between the Twenty Mile Road/Hilltop Road intersection and the Hess Road intersection. The current project scope of services will advance the 30% plans to final design level for the Parker Road Sidewalk project. The project will be broken into three segments. The first will include extending the sidewalk from south of Twenty Mile Road 2,750 feet down to Indian Pipe Lane. Segment 2 will include providing a sidewalk spur connection from the proposed Parker Road sidewalk down to the Cherry Creek Trail just north of the McCabe Meadows Trailhead. Segment 3 will extend the sidewalk an additional 2,100 feet south to Hess Road.
