Amendments to the EDDS


Proposed Rule Making Action
On January 21, 2020 the Department of Public Works (DPW) published a Notice of Proposed Rule Making Action and emailed the notice to stakeholders, thereby commencing a 21-day comment period which ended at 5:00 PM on (Wednesday) February 12, 2020 and no further comments are allowed on those changes.

During the 21 day comment period DPW noticed a drafting error on Std. Drwg. 3-105 90º INTERSECTION ELBOW and received comments concerning road ends.

Given the implications of the drafting error and the extent of the changes proposed to road ends, DPW is sending this follow up notice to those stakeholders impacted by the changes and is establishing a new 21-day comment period which begins on March 12, 2020 and ends on April 2, 2020.

Comments are limited to ONLY those changes identified in red in EDDS text sections 3-01.B.2 and 3-010.A.1, Std. Drwgs. 3-105 and 3-150A & B as shown in the follow-up notice.

Please read the Stakeholder Follow Up Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Action for information on the proposed changes and timeframes for review and submitting comments, plus how to submit comments.  
Comments must be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 2, 2020. After we have reviewed all comments the County Engineer may approve the proposed amended rule(s) in whole or in part, with or without changes, or repeal the proposed amended rule(s) entirely. Once that is done we will provide (email and publish in the Herald) a Notice of Rule Adoption identifying all the sections and standard drawings being adopted. The emailed notice of adoption will also include the final version of the changes.

Please email all your questions, comments, or proposed changes to Erik Olson or Ryan Peterson.
