San Marcos City Council To Determine Scope Of Work For Capes Dam Study

During the San Marcos City Council work session, the council will receive an update on the scope of work regarding Capes’ Dam and be provided a scope of work for the council’s Study Request For Proposals.

In January, the council directed staff to conduct further studies on Capes Dam and the various environmental aspects to address a number of councilmember’s concerns regarding the dam’s removal, rehabilitation or restoration.

In June, City Manager Bert Lumbreras informed the council that staff had begun preparing a work session item to establish the scope of work for RFP the council wanted; however, COVID-19 struck and work on the project was postponed while staff identified potential funding sources to overcome revenue shortfalls.

Lumbreras said staff had determined that the funding allocated for Capes Dam projects was not something that could “be taken in,” and work on bringing the scope of work forward would resume.

The San Marcos City Council will convene for their virtual meeting at 3:00 PM. No public comment period is available for the council’s regular work sessions.
