Damage to pavers. Committee members received a copy of a letter addressed to the Department of Personnel and Administration, recommending a rules change concerning parking on the pavers on the west side of circle lot outside the State Capitol Building, prepared by Legislative Council Staff (Attachment D). Mr. Lance Shepherd, Office of the State Architect, came to the table to answer questions about damage to the pavers. In response to a question, he explained that the pavers are not rated (according to weight) for bus or truck parking. Ms. Nunnally suggested requiring large vehicles to park on the east side of the building. The committee then discussed the possibility of limiting parking on the pavers based on the weight of a vehicle. Mr. Shepherd told the committee that personnel from the Capitol Complex are responsible for the maintenance of the parking lot, but that there is no money in the budget to make repairs. Mr. Shepherd then suggested requiring a damage deposit as part of the permitting process to meet on the State Capitol grounds. Mr. Nichols advocated a rules change limiting parking on the pavers. Discussion continued about requiring a damage deposit. Ms. Debbie Haskins, Office of Legislative Legal Services, responded to a question about the rule-making process.
