City Manager's Update to Council September 16, 2014
A pre-construction meeting was held at
the Sandusky County Engineer's office on September 10th
for the Limerick Road Resurfacing Project. Gerken
Paving Inc., Gibsonburg is tentatively planning on
grinding the road on Wednesday, September 24th and
resurfacing it on Thursday, September 25th. We are
scheduled to grind Durnwald Drive from CR 175 to the
Railroad Tracks on September 25th and Gerken will
resurface that stretch shortly thereafter. This
schedule is extremely dependant on the weather and
numerous other issues.
A pre-construction meeting was held
yesterday at the Ohio Department of Transportation's
District 3 Offices for our South Street Bridge Project.
Mosser Construction, Fremont, Ohio presented their
construction schedule and stated that they anticipate
closing South Street to traffic on October 6th.
They are only allowed a 60-day closure per the contract
and intend on meeting the November 30th completion date.
The Ohio Publics Works (OPW), Sandusky
County Sub-Committee met this 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 Waste Water
Treatment Plant EQ Basin was one of three State Capital
Improvement Projects (SCIP) awarded priority points by
the committee and should now be within the funding
range. As I have mentioned in the past, these
projects are extremely competitive. If funded, we
will be receiving $325,000 from OPW.
Construction on the East Forest Street
Improvement, Phase II officially started yesterday,
September 15th. Installation of the new water main
started near Church Street and will progress west
towards Main Street. This is a $ 540,000 project
being completed by Helms & Sons Excavating, Findlay,
Ohio. They intend to have the job "under pavement"
Fair preparations are in full swing as
you can tell from driving thru down town.
As always, we will be ready for this annual event and
the weather forecast is looking good at this time.
The weekend "schedule-of-events" is on-line so please
plan to spend some time with us at the fair this year.
I am certain that there is an event for everyone to
enjoy. A special "thank you" goes out to the Fair
Board and your city employees for all their hard work
leading up to this big event.
Clyde Police Department
Renovation - The finish work continues and we
hope to return the dispatchers to their new home next
week. If you have heard many town sirens lately,
it is all part of the process of bringing the new
dispatch center "on-line". We apologize for the
inconvenience but it is a necessary evil.
Storage Building - Construction was started on
schedule, on August 20th and is nearing completion.
- The Park Department's new mower is now in service.
City Hall Boiler
- Installation should begin next week.
