Public Works Facility Fee - Meeting Information

The Public Works Facility has been a subject of concern since 2000. It lacks seismic stability, has no fire suppression system, is not ADA accessible and has deficiencies related to rest room, locker room, work-space, and storage capacities.

Since February 2017, the City Council has reviewed and assessed alternatives for solving structural defects. In July 2017, the Council directed staff to present an option to proceed with construction of a new Public Works Facility and in October 2017 they approved a Phase 1 design contract.  

In September 2018, following two public forums to review the proposed project and financing options, the Council awarded Phase 2 of the design build contract with a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) of $3.103 million and directed the City Administrator to proceed with a bond issuance to fund the project and implement a utility fee (estimated monthly cost per customer of $4.82)to fund the replacement of the debt.  

The Fairview City Council will hear the first reading and a review of Ordinance 9-2018 (Public Works Facility Fee) at special meeting at 6:00 PM, October 15, 2018 meeting.  The second reading of Ordinance 9-2018 and the public hearing will be at their 7:00 PM, October 17, 2018 meeting. 

Meeting information and documents will be available on the City of Fairview website or by contacting the City Recorder at 503.674.6224 or leymasterd@ci.fairview.or.us.
