City Manager's Update to Council April 21, 2015

Construction work on the East Forest Sewer Separation Project, Phase II began again yesterday morning.  The contractor has numerous small items to complete prior to placing the surface course of asphalt.  Most of the work involves driveway preparations and raising the manhole castings to grade.  Erie Blacktop is planning on moving-in over the weekend and paving early next week.  Following the paving, it is just a matter of some minor finish work and cleaning up the site and storage areas.  With the completion of this project, we have completed the last sewer separation job mandated by our 2004 Consent Decree with the USEPA.      

The Clyde Solar Project reached a major milestone last Tuesday, April 14.  The City of Clyde received the first of six (6), one hundred thousand dollar ($100,000.00) payments for the use of our land (20 acres) NE of the Waste Water Treatment Plant.  As you might remember, this is a twenty (20) year lease arrangement and the City of Clyde will be the sole purchaser of energy from the 3MW array.  We will hopefully have a related piece of legislation at our next meeting and the array owners plan to be under construction this summer.    

Planning for construction of the Flow Equalization (EQ) Basin is continuing.  We have been receiving and replying to numerous comments and requests for information from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) as they review the construction plans in order to issue our Permit-to-Install (PTI).  We are also finalizing the OEPA DEFA loan application at this time and hope to have it completed by Friday.  The plan is to bid the project towards the end of July and have the one million gallon basin completed by year-end.

We recently received tentative bid dates from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) on two projects that involve the City of Clyde.  The US RT 20 Culvert by Hall's Market will be bid on March 17, 2016.  This project, as you might remember, received a three hundred and ninety-two thousand dollar ($392,000) grant thru the very competitive ODOT Small City Grant Program.  Richland Engineering has submitted the Stage 2 plans for review and comments.  ODOT also confirmed that they would be receiving bids on September 24, 2015 for the resurfacing of SR 101 NE from US RT 20.  This project will be part of ODOT's Urban Paving Program and the city will only be responsible for twenty percent (20%) of the costs within the city limits.  We will be presenting legislation for both projects at our next meeting. 

The 2015 Street Resurfacing Program is set to bid this Friday, April 24 at 10 A.M.  The roads involved with this year's program are Helen Street, Norris Drive, Gregory Court, East Drew Lane, East Thomson Drive, and Zimmerman.  The cost estimate for the program is $130,000.00.  Please check our city website frequently, beginning in May, for "Paving Updates" if you reside on one of the project streets.
