owners 100 of the cost to not have to place the sidewalks when upgrading or building new. He stated that this does not provide an incentive to take the option of paying into the City fund. Mr. Ferris stated payment in lieu fee should be attractive to a property owner so they will consider this and the City can place the dollars into a fund for the City to use. The City needs to consider an amount less than 100 , maybe 75-80 , so that property owners will have an incentive to go that route and the monies collected for the in lieu fee will go into a City fund for sidewalks needed in other areas of the City. He asked if Council would like to reconsider a percentage less than 100 .
