Title                     Resolution Approving the Designated and Alternate Board Members for the  Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority




Executive Summary


The Rueter-Hess Reservoir is roughly ten miles northeast of Castle Rock and is owned by the Parker Water and Sanitation District. Its primary purpose is to provide drinking water and water storage to district customers; its secondary purpose is to provide recreation to surrounding communities.


In 2015, Castle Rock Town Council voted to support an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) (Attachment B) to create the Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority (Authority). Other Authority partners include Parker Water and Sanitation District, Douglas County, Castle Pines, Lone Tree and the Town of Parker. Each partner in the agreement maintains a position on the Authority board whose responsibilities include planning the development, financing, construction, administration and maintenance of recreation uses consistent with the reservoir’s 2016 Master Plan.


The Parks and Recreation Director has served as the designated representative on the Authority Board since its inception. Staff now seek approval of an alternate board member to serve as a voting member in the absence of the primary designee.


Budget Impact


This request has no financial implications.


Staff Recommendation


Due to the Authority’s purpose to plan, develop and provide recreational uses and amenities around the reservoir for the benefit of the public, staff are recommending that Recreation Manager Michael Kilman be appointed and approved as the alternate designee.


Proposed Motion


“I move to approve the resolution as introduced by title.”
