Your Town Council meets Tuesday, Dec. 18. View the full agenda online.
Town Council will be presenting the Castle View High School Varsity Football Team with a proclamation to congratulate the coaches and athletes on the team’s most successful showing in the Class 5A State Championships. Council will also be discussing the Town’s 2019 major projects list. And, members of Town Council will be receiving an update on a survey conducted by Castle Rock Water for a possible Recreational Vehicle Dump Station in Town. More than 420 people responded to the survey. Council will consider staff’s recommendation to not move forward with the dump station at this time.
Here are a few other things on Tuesday's agenda:
- Proposed ordinance to provide a temporary suspension on potential kratom businesses – Town Council will consider a proposed ordinance to provide a temporary suspension on the establishment of new businesses related to kratom sales. Currently, many federal agencies, including the FDA and DEA, are studying kratom due to concerns about potential abuse and quality control. The proposed ordinance will allow Town staff the opportunity to further survey the kratom industry to identify, and potentially regulate, kratom sales within the Town.
Town Council will consider the emergency adoption on first and final reading of the ordinance. If approved, Town staff will continue to monitor federal, state and local regulations to consider possible regulations for presentation to Council at a later date.
- Important contracts related to reuse water – Castle Rock Water will be presenting Town Council with two contracts for a project to upgrade Plum Creek Water Purification Facility to purify reuse water.
Town Council will be asked to approve a service agreement with Burns & McDonnell Engineering Co. Inc. for engineering services on the advanced treatment construction phase at the water treatment plant. The firm was retained as the consultant to design improvements at the plant to purify reuse water for use in Castle Rock. If this next service agreement is approved, the firm will continue to oversee the project through the construction phase.
Additionally, Town Council will be asked to approve the first amendment to the Plum Creek Water Purification Facility Advanced Treatment Project construction agreement with Garney Companies Inc. The agreement is for the portion of construction consisting of a 1-million-gallon raw water blending tank, associated site and infrastructure work and equipment packages for the advanced treatment systems. A second work package will be presented to Council in early 2019 for the balance of the work.
One final agenda item related to Castle Rock Water on Tuesday’s agenda is an agreement between the Town, Plum Creek Water Reclamation Authority, Castle Pines Metropolitan District and Castle Pines North Metropolitan District to expand the wastewater treatment plant’s capacity by 3 million gallons of water per day. If approved, that project, which is being funded primarily by system development fees paid by new development, would be completed in 2020.
