[Ord. No. 06-77 §1, 11-13-2006]
The owner or developer is required to have all subdivision improvements, including sidewalks, completed prior to the filing of the final plat. In lieu of the final completion of said improvements before the plat is recorded, the owner or developer or other person who agrees with the City to make the public improvements on behalf of the owner or developer may post a surety bond with one (1) or more corporate sureties engaged in the business of signing surety bonds in the State of Missouri, an escrow agreement, letter of credit or other appropriate security agreement for certain improvements with the approval of the City Attorney and the City Administrator of the City of Republic, which surety, escrow agreement or other appropriate security agreement will insure to the City that the improvements will be completed by the owner or developer.
Improvements related to ensuring public safety within the development must be completed and accepted prior to the filing of the final plat. All other improvements must be completed within one (1) year after the recording of the final plat. The Director of Public Works may require that certain improvements such as storm sewers, off-site improvements and basic improvements necessary for the provision of public health and safety be made and refuse to accept security for such improvements when he determines the improvements are necessary for the protection of adjacent property or of the general public. The City may, upon proof of hardship, extend the completion date set forth in said bond or agreements for a maximum period of one (1) additional year; provided a request for said extension is made prior to the end of the one (1) year following recordation and provided the amount of said security is revised pursuant to a revised estimate by the Department of Public Works. The City Attorney and City Administrator, acting in conjunction, may at any time during the period of such bond accept a substitution of principal or sureties on the bond or a substitution of a letter of credit, escrow or other approved security agreement. The amount of the corporate surety bond, escrow agreement or other appropriate security agreement shall not be less than the estimated cost of the improvements, said estimate of cost to be made by the Department of Public Works. The City may defer at the time of final approval, subject to appropriate conditions, the provision of any and all such improvements as, in its judgment, are not appropriate because of incompatible grades, future planning, inadequate or lack of connecting facilities or other reasons. As a condition of deferral, the owner or developer shall pay his share of the costs of the future improvements to the City prior to the signing of the final plat or the owner or developer may post an appropriate security approved in the same manner as stated above which shall insure completion of said deferred improvements upon demand by the City. If the improvements are not completed within the specified time, the City Council may use the funds from said security, or any necessary portion thereof, to complete the same.
The release or reduction of said corporate surety bond, escrow agreement or other appropriate security agreement shall be in accordance with the following:
When a petition for improvements by the tax bill method is filed for the improvements of this Section and when said petition has passed the required remonstrance petition assuring the City that all improvements will be installed, said bond or agreements posted by the owner or developer to insure the City the improvements of this Section may be released and returned to the owner or developer.
The Director of Public Works with the approval of the City Administrator may release or reduce said bond or agreements posted by the owner or developer to insure to the City the improvements of this Section when he has determined that all required improvements have been satisfactorily completed and the owner or developer's engineer or surveyor has certified to said Director, through submission of a detailed "as-built" survey plat of the subdivision indicating location, dimensions, materials and other information required by said Director, that the layout of the line and grade of all public improvements are in accordance with construction plans for the subdivision and that the improvements have been completed, are ready for dedication to the local government and are free and clear of any and all liens and encumbrances.
The Director of Public Works with the approval of the City Administrator may reduce, upon request, said bond or agreements when he has made the findings and received the information required in the above Subsection (b), but such reduction shall not exceed the ratio that the cost of completed improvements bears to the total estimated cost of total public improvements for the plat.
The City, its boards, commission and agents shall withhold all City improvements or services of whatsoever nature, including the furnishing of sewer, water, electricity and gas, from all additions which have not been approved as provided by these regulations; and further, no permits shall be issued by the Community Development Department of the City of Republic on any property which has not been approved as provided by these regulations.
[Ord. No. 16-23 § 1, 11-28-2016]
Provided however, the improvements and permits withheld above shall not be withheld by reason of the conditions therein stated when the City finds the improvements are necessary to comply with other ordinances of the City of Republic which carry a penalty for failure to comply.
Final Plat approval shall confer upon the developer the conditional right that the City Council will not change the general terms and conditions under which the approval was granted. Approval of the Final Plat, by general ordinance, and the subsequent recording of the Final Plat shall constitute the subdivision of the property into lots and the creation and dedication of right-of-way and utility easements.
[Ord. No. 04-19 §1, 3-8-2004]
