City Manager's Update to Council September 20, 2016
Work on the US RT 20 Culvert Replacement by Hall's Market has been completed. Mosser Construction met all of their completion deadlines as outlined by ODOT and we had minimal traffic issues during the construction. We are still planning a "dip-out" of the open channel downstream from the new culvert yet this year.
Classical Construction has completed all work at the Clyde Light and Power Building and are now awaiting the final state inspection. Work at the Park's Admin/Maint Building is starting to wrap up. The electricians should be done with their work this week. They were able to get the electrical service approved by the state today so the final electrical inspection should be next week.
Clyde Light and Power's bids for the West Substation Upgrades will be opened this Friday at 10am. It appears as if we have at least four (4) contractors are interested in this project.
The Ohio Publics Works (OPW), Sandusky County Sub-Committee will meet this Thursday morning at the County Engineer's Office to score all of the local applications and issue any county priority points before submittals are made to the State. Our 2017 Hamer Street Improvement Project was submitted and has a very strong preliminary score. If we are able to negotiate enough priority points on Thursday, we should be in the funding range. As I have mentioned in the past, these projects are peer reviewed and extremely competitive. If funded, we will be receiving $325,000 from OPW.
A big "Thank You" goes out to the Fair Board, City Employees, and anyone who had a hand in another successful Clyde Fair. The bad weather dampened the mood a little bit on Saturday but the Friday evening and Sunday events were very well attended.
As mentioned previously, The Clyde Business & Professional Association has another Farm Market scheduled for Thursday, October 13th from 3pm - 7pm.
