Resolution Rescinding Previous Resolution of May 23, 2007 Appropriating $125,000 from Storm Water Fund Balance to Assess Flooding and Shoaling Problems in Back River (Engineering Services Project No. 07-046) and Instead Appropriating $125,000 from Fund Balance for this Project.

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, over the past few years there has been an increase in the frequency and severity of flooding along the shoreline of the Back River, from its headwaters near LaSalle Avenue, to its mouth at the Chesapeake Bay; and 

WHEREAS, there has also been an overall increase in sedimentation and shoaling within the Back River, most noticeably along the area between the Harris River and the Bay, which is adversely affecting boating from the commercial marinas and public landings; and 

WHEREAS, in the late 90s, the narrow peninsula of land at the mouth of the Back River known as Factory Point was breached and that the breach is continuing to widen; and 

WHEREAS, this breach may be contributing to the problems in the Back River; and  

WHEREAS, a Back River Flooding and shoaling Citizens Committee has been established to make recommendations to Council on these problems; and

WHEREAS, in order to support the work of this committee in determining the source(s) of the flooding and shoaling problems in the Back River, consultant services are appropriate, in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other state and federal agencies; and

WHEREAS, by resolution adopted on May 23, 2007 the Hampton City Council purported to fund a consultants study to aid in determining the source(s) of the Back River flooding and shoaling problems with a $125,000.00 appropriation from the Storm Water Management Fund, and Council has been informed that limitations on the use of the Storm Water Fund requires rescission of that appropriation resolution; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that this Councils resolution of May 23, 2007 appropriating $125,000.00 from Storm Water Fund Balance for consultant services to assess the flooding and shoaling problems in the Back River is hereby rescinded; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that $125,000.00 is hereby appropriated from fund balance for this purpose.

 

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on July 18, 2007.
