GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. A Redlands developer will not be required to honor a seven year warranty on its streets.
The Grand Junction city council voted 6 to 1 against the warranty. Instead, they approved the two years recommended by the developer. If any damage happens to those roads in the next two years, the city will not be financially responsible for repairing them. The council says they did not want to set a precedent on changing a warranty period based on one sub-division.
"It has impacts on the development community that it lacks predictability on their ability to get a project approved and what it would take to develop it," said Councilman Duncan McArthur.
The sub division plans call for 72 single family homes. Bennett Boeschenstein was the lone council member to vote against the two year warranty period.
