In compliance with NRS 237.080, local governments are to notify trade associations or owners and officers of businesses that are likely to be affected by the adoption of the proposed rule, so that you may submit data or arguments to the governing body, or its designee, if you believe the adoption of the referenced rule will either:
(a) impose a direct and significant economic burden upon business, or
(b) directly restrict the formation, operation or expansion of a business.
The City of Reno proposes to update the Public Works Design Manual, Chapter VI – Quality Assurance Program (QAP).
The revision requires the creation of lists of qualified consultants that provide Engineer of Record services and qualified testing firms that provide materials testing services within the City of Reno. Accreditation requirements for laboratories and personnel performing testing services have also been added. Additionally, the City is requesting comments related to the proposal to require full-time inspection of the placement of all aggregate base courses and full-time inspection for the placement of prime coat, tack coat, seal coat and surface treatment. Many of the changes to the document are administrative in nature; i.e. clarifications to text or updates to reflect current technology. Please see the draft text for complete details.
The proposed text is available for review and copying at the Office of the City Clerk, 1 East First Street, 2nd Floor, Reno, Nevada.
The proposed adoption of the update to the Public Works Design Manual, Chapter VI, is scheduled to appear before the Reno City Council on January 27, 2016, at 10 a.m.
