RESOLUTION NO. 160227

 

Directing the City Manager to explore available options and best practices to address the use and removal of paint markings on the City’s right-of-way.

 

WHEREAS, marking of underground facilities is needed for proper and safe excavation; and

 

WHEREAS, proper marking must be visible for as long as excavation work takes place to protect the safety of the public and contractors; and

 

WHEREAS, painting is one the most effective marking techniques used by contractors and locate companies; and

 

WHEREAS, the City is committed to the safety of the public, contractors, and facilities involved during excavation work; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that the use of paint markings should remain as long as necessary during the excavation work; and

 

WHEREAS, paint markings that remain on the public right-of-way for extended periods of time long after the excavation work is complete are unsightly and negatively impact the appearance and livability of the City’s neighborhoods; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that a collaborative effort between the City, contractors, and stakeholders can produce effective, efficient, and affordable results that can address the need to preserve public safety while preserving the appearance of the public right-of way in neighborhoods; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Manager is hereby directed to explore available options and best practices to address the use and removal of paint markings on the City’s right-of-way.

 

Section 2. That the City Manager is hereby directed to report back to the City Council with his findings and recommendations by August 1, 2016.
