     A RESOLUTION

declaring the necessity for the construction and extension of 8-inch and 12inch water mains serving Westbrook, Plat 1; stating the nature of the improvement; estimating the extra cost for constructing 8-inch and 12-inch rather than 6-inch and 8-inch water mains; providing that the improvement shall be made by Frech & Conrad Development, LLC; providing that payment for the extra cost of constructing larger water mains shall be from water utility funds; and setting a public hearing.

    WHEREAS, Frech & Conrad Development, LLC desires to install 6-inch and 8inch water mains to serve property abutting the proposed water main extension; and

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBIA, MISSOURI, AS FOLLOWS:

    SECTION 1.    The Council deems the construction of about 1,170 feet of 8-inch and 1,935 feet of 12inch water main pipes and accessory valves and fittings serving Westbrook, Plat 1 necessary to assure adequate future water supply for the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the City.
