Purpose and Recommended Action
Recommendation
 
This is a request for City Council to waive reading beyond the title and adopt an ordinance granting a power distribution easement in favor of Salt River Project (SRP) across city property located at 7691 North 99th Avenue.   
Background
 
On September 9, 2014, City Council authorized the City Manager to enter into C-9245 Digital Billboard Placement License Agreement with Lamar Central Outdoor, LLC for the installation, operation, maintenance, and repair of digital billboard equipment on City-owned property located at 7691 North 99th Avenue.  Providing power to the billboard required SRP to install new power distribution facilities across city property. City staff worked with SRP to facilitate the construction, subject to Council approval of an easement at the new location.  
Analysis
 
·      Staff recommends approval of the SRP power distribution easement.
·      There will be no additional construction needed as a result of this action.
·      There are no costs incurred by the city as a result of this action.
 
Community Benefit/Public Involvement
 
The granting of this easement will allow SRP access to their facilities which provide the required power needed to operate the recently approved digital billboard at this location.
