RESOLUTION 2077 <br /> A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ANACORTES, <br /> WASHINGTON, declaring an emergency and waiving state competitive bidding <br /> requirements for the repair of Longview Avenue, pursuant to RCW 39.04.280. <br /> WHEREAS, RCW 39.04.280 provides that the City, by resolution, may waive <br /> competitive bidding requirements for public works in the event of an emergency. For <br /> purposes of RCW 39.04.280, an "emergency" is any unforeseen circumstance beyond <br /> the control of the municipality that either (a) presents a real, immediate threat to the <br /> proper performance of essential functions; or (b) will likely result in material loss or <br /> damage to property, bodily injury, or loss of life if immediate action is not taken; and <br /> WHEREAS, on February 8, 2020 a large sink hole formed on Longview Avenue <br /> over the 36" storm water pipe crossing. The storm water pipe appears to have failed <br /> catastrophically due to high water flows and saturated ground resulting from recent <br /> intense rainfall. The existing 16" asbestos-cement (AC) water main is being undermined <br /> and is at risk of failing; and <br /> WHEREAS, this portion of Longview Avenue and the AC water main is in a <br /> state of imminent potential for total failure causing property damage and becoming a <br /> risk to human health.; and <br /> WHEREAS, repair of the road and pipes is "public work" as defined by RCW <br /> 39.04.010(4). <br /> NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of <br /> Anacortes, Washington as follows: <br /> Section 1. The City Council of the City of Anacortes, Washington finds that the <br /> facts set forth in the recitals of this resolution are true and that the failure of <br /> Longview Avenue and underlying pipes constitutes an emergency under RCW <br /> 39.04.280. Pursuant to RCW 39.04.280, the City Council hereby declares and <br /> certifies that an emergency exists requiring immediate repair and reconstruction <br /> of the road and underlying pipes on Longview Avenue. <br /> Section 2. The City Council of the City of Anacortes, Washington hereby waives <br /> the bidding requirements and authorizes staff to contract without solicitation of <br /> bids for the public work project titled Longview Avenue Repairs, and to take <br /> such actions as necessary to carry out the intent and direction of this Resolution. <br /> Section 3. Any actions of the City or its officers prior to the date hereof and <br /> consistent with the terms of this Resolution are ratified and confirmed. • <br /> Section 4. This Resolution shall be in full force and effect from the after its <br /> adoption and approval. <br /> Resolution 2077 Page 1 <br />
