Should the City Council conduct and approve First Reading of an ordinance titled, "An Ordinance amending AMC Chapter 2.28, relating to delegation of duties to the City Administrator for acceptance of interest in real property and the renewal of intergovernmental agreements" and move the ordinance on to Second Reading on June 17, 2008.?
Staff recommends Council approval of First Reading by title only and move the Ordinance on to Second Reading set for June 17, 2008.
The City Council often sees routine matters on the Agenda because there is no formal delegation to the City Administrator to dispose of such matters. For example, the 5-20-08 Agenda included two easements for acceptance under ORS 93.808. [The City's acceptance of title to or an interest in real property must be shown on the legal instrument for recording to occur]. In addition, the Council has seen a number of routine Intergovernmental Agreements renewals (IGAs) with the State of Oregon Building Codes Division in recent months. Technically, absent a formal delegation, such matters are to be approved by the governing body. Because there is no need to clutter the Council's Agenda with routine matters, the Department head team discussed and recommends formally delegating to the City Administrator the authority to handle such matters administratively. Matters requiring public hearings (e.g. acceptance of a conservation easement) are not subject to delegation.
