City Manager's Update to Council June 21, 2016
I want to start tonight by thanking each and every one of the city employees. It has been an extremely busy and productive Spring/Summer.
No department was exempt from this as they all had projects above the "norm".
A lot of our man hours are typically spent "maintaining" but for the last four months we have been in an all-out "building mode" that has not let up yet.
A couple who is looking to relocate their business to Clyde was in today and spent some time talking to Mr. Winke and I about city operations.
They told us that they have been watching and want to be in Clyde because we "have it going on" and they want to invest here.
It just doesn't get any better than hearing that.
The 2016 Paving Program is just about complete.
7L Construction still has the path thru Hurd Park to complete but that it tentatively scheduled for the end of this week or early next week.
The roads look and ride very nice and we have been very pleased with the finished product.
The Clyde Solar Energy Center (CSEC) started producing energy on June 1st. Although the field is still undergoing commissioning, it has produced approximately 80,000 kWh of energy to date. Another milestone on the project was also reached today as the entire field started tracking with the Sun.
This Thursday morning, we will be conducting a pre-construction meeting with Classical Construction. At our last meeting, we passed Resolutions 2016-33 and 2016-34 awarding the contracts for construction of the CL&P and Parks Building to Classical Construction.
Misc. City Updates...
