Acceptance of the City's 2016 Audit

Representatives from Haynie and Company presented their final report after conducting an audit of the City's finances for the year ending December 31, 2016. The auditors concluded that the City's finances are "in great shape" and city accounting practices are done appropriately, are materially correct, and meet applicable federal standards. City Council unanimously approved the acceptance of the 2016 audit. 


Ordinance No. 17-05: Repealing and Re-Enacting Sections of the City's Zoning Ordinance Concerning Wireless Communications Facilities and Declaring an Emergency

Current regulations concerning wireless communications facilities in the City's Zoning Ordinance are outdated and not consistent with recent federal and state laws. This ordinance allows the City to establish requirements for the placement and operation of wireless communications facilities to the fullest extent allowed by law. The First Reading of the Ordinance passed unanimously.  


Resolution No. 17-08: Professional Services Agreement with Safebuilt Colorado, Inc. for Building Inspection Services 

Resolution No. 17-08 passed unanimously and increases the City's contracted staff support for building services to a full-time position. 


Resolution No. 17-10: Professional Services Agreement with Wright Water Engineers, Inc. 

Resolution 17-10  passed unanimously and approves an agreement with Wright Water Engineers, Inc. to provide municipal separate storm sewer (MS4) compliance assistance services through December 31, 2017. 


Resolution No. 17-11: Lagae Ranch Filing No. 1, Administrative Replat

The Administrative Replat is necessary in response to requests from the City of Castle Pines, the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) and IREA. The City requests additional right-of-way to realign a portion of Lagae Rd. south of Monarch roundabout and realign the intersection of Hyland Hills St. and Mira Vista Lane. The USACE requires the property owner to redesign the onsite water channel to minimize impacts to the existing wetlands and IREA requires a 10-foot utility easement along the front of the lots to provide electric service to homeowners. These administrative changes were approved unanimously and, once recorded, the new plat will reflect these changes.

The March financial statements and statement of expenditures were approved.
