On Dec. 5, 2016, the Wilsonville City Council held a public hearing and first reading, tentatively approving an ordinance that amends the City’s right-of-way and public-easement management section of City Code. The Council voted to keep the record open to provide additional time for public comments until the second reading of the ordinance at the City Council meeting on Monday, Dec. 19. The ordinance clarifies the method of determining the fees to be charged by the City for use of the public right-of-way by utility providers that may or may not provide service to Wilsonville customers. In particular the code amendments are needed to clarify how to calculate and assess the fees the City will charge for the four miles of 66-inch-diameter water pipeline being planned and constructed to pass through Wilsonville to provide water to Tualatin Valley Water District and City of Hillsboro customers.The City Council also agreed to continue until a future meeting a resolution regarding adoption of an Intergovernmental Cooperative Agreement pertaining to the transfer of roadway authority from Clackamas County to the City for portions of Stafford and Advance Roads.During the Communications portion of the meeting City Manager Bryan Cosgrove presented board members of Wilsonville Community Sharing a ceremonial check in the amount of $5,000, representing the total amount of funds raised by City staff and City-sponsored projects donated in 2016 to the local nonprofit food bank and social service agency.Also during the Communications portion of the meeting departing Wilsonville Police Chief Jeff Smith introduced and then passed his badge to the newly-appointed Wilsonville Police Chief Adam Phillips, who has 20 years of professional law-enforcement experience with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.On the Consent Agenda the Council adopted The Canvass of Votes for the Nov. 8, 2016, general election that certifies the final voting results provided to the City Recorder by the County Clerks of Clackamas and Washington counties.During work session prior to the meeting, City Council heard reports and held discussions regarding the City now-underway project that studies the potential development of a publicly-owned fiber optics network for potential commercial and residential use in Wilsonville.
