176.04   FINAL PLAT PROCEDURE.
1.   Installation of Improvements. Before consideration of a final subdivision plat, the subdivider shall have installed the improvements required under Chapter 178 of these subdivision regulations, or the Commission shall require the posting of adequate performance guarantees with the administrative official to assure the installation of the required improvements within one year after final approval of the plat.
2.   Submission Requirements. The final plat or, in the case of a large subdivision, a final plat or part of the area covered by the approved preliminary plat, and final plat fees shall be submitted to the administrative official. Initially, five prints of the final plat shall be submitted to the City for review. The final plat shall be accompanied by a statement from the Engineer that said officer has prepared
as-constructed plans showing all utilities in exact location and elevation, identifying those portions already installed. The subdivider shall comply with one or a combination of the following:
   A.   Before the Council approves the final plat, all of the required improvements shall be constructed and accepted by formal resolution of the Council. Before passage of said resolution of acceptance, the City Engineer shall report that said improvements meet all City specifications and ordinances or other requirements and agreements between the subdivider and the City.
   B.   This requirement may be waived if the subdivider will post a cash or corporate surety bond or certified check or surety approved by the Council with the City, guaranteeing that said improvements will be constructed within a period of one year from final acceptance of the plat, such bond to be approved by the City Attorney. However, if surety is posted, final acceptance of the plat will not constitute final acceptance by the City of any improvements to be constructed. Improvements will be accepted only after their construction has been completed and inspection by appropriate City personnel certifying the improvements have been completed in conformance to specifications and standards of the City and ordinances of the City. No public funds will be expended in the subdivision until such improvements have been completed and accepted by the City.
   C.   The amount of the bond or certified check or other surety shall be for the actual estimated cost of the improvements, including all inspection services and tests conducted by the City and the amount of the estimate of the bond or certified check must be approved by the City Engineer.
   D.   The Council may waive the requirements of these subdivision regulations for the construction and installation of some or all of the improvements in case of re-subdivision where only the size, shape, and arrangement of the lots are being changed. However, such waiver shall be limited to existing improvements in good repair, as determined by the City Engineer. Improvements not existing or in poor repair shall meet the requirements of these subdivision regulations.
   E.   The Council may waive the requirements of these subdivision regulations for the construction and installation of some or all of the improvements in cases of dedication of land or rights-of-way to public use where such dedication is in excess of the needs of the subdivision and is desired by a public agency in lieu of a purchase or condemnation proceeding.
   F.   Bonds to secure liens, as provided in Section 354.12 of the Code of Iowa, may be approved by the Council.
3.   Action By Commission. The administrative official shall immediately refer one copy to the City Engineer upon receipt of a final plat. The Commission shall be assisted by the City Engineer’s recommendations and shall act upon the final plat within 60 days after the date of submission for final approval to the administrative official.
4.   Commission Approval. If approval is given, the Commission shall vote such approval on the plat over the signature of both the Chairperson and Secretary of the Commission, and the Commission shall then forward the plat to the Council for final approval and acceptance of all streets, alleys, ways, easements, parks, or areas preserved for, or dedicated to, the public.
5.   Commission Denial. If the Commission does not recommend approval of the final plat of a subdivision, the Council may approve the plat and accept all streets, alleys, ways, easements, parks, or areas preserved for or dedicated to the public by a four-fifths vote by the entire membership of the Council.
6.   Council Approval. Upon final approval by the Council, one reproducible Mylar and six prints of the approved final plat and one reproducible Mylar set of as-constructed plans, and two sets of prints of construction plans will be filed with the administrative official.
7.   Filing With County Recording Officer. After final approval by the Council, the City shall notify the owner or the subdivider, and the subdivider shall cause a plat to be filed with the County recording officer, as provided by the Code of Iowa, and shall file satisfactory evidence of such recording in the office of the administrative official of the City before the City shall recognize the plat as being in full force and effect.
