Both of these conditions will be met prior to the issuance of any business license, building permits, or certificates of occupancy, required after the adoption date of this approval. This recommendation is based on a finding that the criteria set forth in Sections 11-5-14 and 11-5-15 of the Westminster Municipal Code have been met.

Transfer approved for new lift station project

City Council awarded RN Civil Construction a contract for the project construction on April 22 and construction of the new lift station is now under way. The project will relocate the lift station away from traffic adding a redundant discharge pipeline for reliability add a buried overflow storage tank to reduce the risk of spills, and relocate the lift station out of the storm water drainage way prone to flooding conditions.
