City Manager's Update to Council August 2nd, 2016
Work continues on the US RT 20 Culvert Replacement by Hall's Market. Mosser Construction has installed 86' of the 118' of the 63"X89" Elliptical Reinforced Concrete Pipe (ERCP). The final traffic control pattern was set up this morning with one lane open Eastbound and two lanes open Westbound. With only 4 sections of ERCP remaining to be set, this project should be wrapped up quickly. Please use caution while traveling in this construction zone.
Classical Construction (CC) is still moving quickly on both the Parks and CL&P construction projects. Both buildings are under roof and completely sided. The concrete floors have been completed in both buildings and the offices have been "roughed-in" in the Parks building. Electrical work is scheduled next for both buildings and then the interior finish work will be started in the park building.
Clyde Light and Power's City-Wide LED conversion is proceeding as scheduled. To date, the fiberglass decorative lights on Vine, Spring Street, West Grant, Meadow Lane, Woodhaven Crescent, Birdseye, and Merlin have been converted.
The Environmental Services Department (EVS) has completed the 24" sewer replacement at the Waste Water Treatment Plant. They installed 450 lineal feet of conduit and completed the seeding and mulching within a two-week window.
The Fair Board conducted their annual "pre-fair" meeting with department heads on Thursday, August 11th. We are definitely ready for the 30th Annual Clyde Fair which will run from September 16th thru 18th.
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) informed us this week that our Small City Grant application was not selected for funding. This application was for the Reconstruction of SR 101 near Billings Garage and the US RT 20 Sewer Separation from East Street to Main Street. We will continue to design this project and apply again in January 2017.
As mentioned previously, The Clyde Business & Professional Association has another Farm Market scheduled for Thursday, September 8th from 4pm - 7pm.
