City Manager's Update to Council November 18, 2014

Clyde Fliers - First and foremost, I would like to congratulate Coach Carter and his Flier Football Team.  What a season to be proud of.

The East Forest Street Sewer Separation, Phase II Project is at an obvious weather "stand-still".  Helms and Sons have been on site daily, making every attempt to keep things safe and open despite the concrete blankets and equipment everywhere during this early winter blast.  As of earlier today, the 301 Base Pavement is scheduled for next Monday.  We all hope to get the Intermediate and Surface Courses laid but will definitely pull the plug on them if quality is jeopardized.

The South Street Bridge is progressing towards completion.  Since your last update, the storm drains in the area have been installed, the concrete pedestrian railings have been poured and the majority of the structure has been backfilled.  A few more daysí worth of backfilling and final grading should get Mosser to the point of paving.  This grant through the Ohio Bridge Partnership Program but more specifically, the way the program itself has been administered has saved our Permanent Improvement Fund approximately $900,000.  It has only been 12 months since Governor Kasich rolled out this program for thirty (30) county and ten (10) municipal bridges in the state and here we are ready to re-open ours.  Another one hundred and seventy-four (174) are to be built through the program in the next three (3) years.

Work continues at the city's East Sub-station.  The South Transformer that had developed a leaning foundation over the years has been temporarily relocated and as of today, most of the foundation is removed.  Toledo Testing will be on site tomorrow to ensure that we get thru the bad soils and down to a substantial sub-grade for the load.  The new foundation pour is scheduled for Thursday.  As far as other work at the station, our crews in conjunction with MK Power Solutions are working on the 69kV Relay Project while JCN Power Solutions has "demo'd" the old MOAB switches and buss work.  The completion date is highly dependent on the soils encountered during tomorrow's excavation work.

As an update to the Flow Equalization (EQ) Basin Project.  Design work continues on this EPA mandated project that is scheduled for completion during the fourth quarter of 2015.  I had conversations today with the OEPA's Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance (DEFA) to confirm our funding of this $2,650,000.00 project.  DEFA's Draft Priority List has us well within the funding range so we will be meeting with numerous OEPA representatives in January to keep this project on its critical path to completion.  The funding mechanism for this project are the DEFA low-interest low term loan and the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) grant of $325,000.00.  Confirmation of the OPWC grant should be coming before year-end.

Closing on the PPP, LLC 76-acre purchase is progressing on schedule.  Solicitor Bova has been working with the title company and I do not believe he has any major issues to discuss at this time.  I have been in contact with the company performing the Environmental Phase 1 study and should be in possession of that document tomorrow.  In speaking with them today, no issues were discovered.  We have tentatively schedule closing for December 2nd. 

Survey work on the US RT 20 Culvert should be completed at this time.  The Environmental Services Department worked with Richland Engineering to accurately locate two (2) of our force mains (sewer lines) and one (1) twelve inch (12") water line in the area.  ODOT has scheduled preliminary plan completion for March 2015. 

Winter has come early for the General Services Department (unfortunately) but all  trucks were ready to roll for their first round.  As mentioned at our last meeting and noted on the PD's Nixle Alerts,  salt usage will be a bit more conservative this year as salt prices have tripled throughout the state.  Please drive according to the weather but be assured that snow and ice control is still one of our highest priorities.  Just prior to the meeting, I spoke with Superintendent Hamilton and he was out checking roads to see what was needed at this time.

Winesburg Christmas - Finally, due to the Fliers Tournament game on Friday Night, all Winesburg Christmas Festivities have been moved to Saturday including the parade, tree lighting and fireworks by Pyrotecnico.
