A RESOLUTION fixing the date for hearing the final assessment roll for Local Improvement District No. 6751 (“Waterfront LID”) to design and construct the Central Waterfront Improvement Program and directing that notice of the hearing be given in the manner required by law.

body

WHEREAS, by Ordinance 125760, passed in January 2019, the City Council of The City of Seattle established Local Improvement District No. 6751 of the City (interchangeably, “LID 6751” or the “Waterfront LID”); and

WHEREAS, the Director of Transportation has filed the proposed final assessment roll for LID 6751 with the City Clerk; and it is necessary to fix a date for the hearing of the roll, NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SEATTLE, THE MAYOR CONCURRING, THAT:

Section 1. Notice of Public Hearing. The City Clerk is authorized and directed to give notice of the time and place fixed for the public hearing on the final assessment roll for Local Improvement District No. 6751. The notice shall also notify all persons who may desire to object thereto:

(1)                     To make their objections in writing and to file them with the City Clerk at or prior to the date fixed for the hearing;

(2)                     That at the time and place fixed and at times to which the hearing may be adjourned, the City Council will sit as a board of equalization for the purpose of considering the roll; and

(3)                     That at the hearing the City Council will consider the objections made and will correct, revise, raise, lower, change, or modify the roll or any part thereof or set aside the roll and order the assessment to be made de novo.

The City Clerk shall mail such notice at least 15 days before the date fixed for public hearing to the owner or reputed owner of the property, as shown on the rolls of the King County Treasurer at the address shown thereon, as required by law. Notice of the date(s), time(s), and place(s) of the public hearing shall also be published at least five times in the official daily newspaper or at least two times in a weekly newspaper of general circulation in the community where the improvement is constructed, with the date of the last publication at least 15 days before the date fixed for the public hearing(s).

Section 2. Time of Public Hearing. The City Council hereby determines that the hearing shall be held before a hearing examiner, with the City Clerk to select and engage the hearing examiner(s) necessary to conduct the hearing herein described and to enter into contracts as necessary for such hearing examiner services.

All persons who may desire to object to confirmation of the assessment roll as prepared are notified to appear and present those objections at the hearing before a hearing examiner to be held on the date below, which time and place are fixed for hearing all matters relating to the assessment roll and all objections thereto:

February 4, 2020

In order to allow all parties to provide testimony and essential additional information to the hearing examiner, the hearing examiner may exercise discretion to recess the hearing to times certain; provided, however, that an effort shall be made at all times to avoid delays which unnecessarily allow interest to accumulate upon obligations for which the local improvement district is responsible.

Section 3. Filing of Report and Findings. The hearing examiner or officer shall reduce the hearing examiner’s findings, recommendations, and decisions to writing and shall file them with the City Clerk following the conclusion of the hearing. Notice of the filing shall be posted or otherwise made available by the City Clerk or any person designated by the City Clerk to do so under the City Clerk’s supervision.
