City approves first project using stormwater drainage utility funding

A Professional Services Agreement has been signed.
Post Date:December 21, 2018
Lewisville City Council has approved a Professional Services Agreement with Halff Associates, Inc. to begin work on the second phase of the Timber Creek streambank stabilization project, using money collected from the stormwater drainage fee.

That fee was put in place in January 2018 to help fund more than $33 million of stormwater infrastructure repairs and improvements. Single-family residential properties in Lewisville pay a flat fee of $4 per month, while commercial and multi-family properties pay $1.43 per month per 1,000 feet of impervious surface. The City chose to enact this fee instead of raising property taxes to pay for the improvements.

Halff Associates has been hired to design surveys for proposed channel improvements to a 700-linear-foot section of Timber Creek adjacent to Regency Drive and Kenny Court. The corridor will include tied-back gabion walls and toe protections. Halff Associates also will work with CMJ Engineering to perform subsurface borings during design to provide general geotechnical information needed for the design and construction of this project.

The total, maximum fee for all design and construction services to complete this project is $206,595. Completion and submittal of a 60 percent preliminary plan sufficient for United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) permitting will be due in 100 calendar days. Completion and submittal of a 90 percent final plan, specifications, bid quantities, and construction cost estimates are due in 145 calendar days from the date of written authorization excluding USACE and City review time.
