City Manager's Update to Council December 16, 2014

The East Forest Street Sewer Separation Project, Phase II has been shut down for the winter. We are very pleased that the contractor was able to get the base course laid but "substantial" completion was not realized in our opinion. Those are issues we will deal with in the spring as we finalize the contract. All in all, the job looks great and as you might remember, this is the last sewer separation project ordered by our 2004 Consent Decree with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The construction of the WWTP Flow Equalization (EQ) Basin next year will officially close out that Decree.

While on the subject of the EQ Basin, we have been having numerous meetings and conversations with our engineers and Ohio EPA representatives lately on the construction designs and equipment that will be utilized in this new process at the plant. Soils borings and site survey work are scheduled for the end of December and we should have some preliminary construction drawings by mid-January to start our review and comment period. The construction bid is tentatively scheduled for the end of July.

The South Street Bridge is now complete and the road is open. Mosser Construction did an outstanding job on this project and worked extremely well with us on all aspects of the reconstruction. Given the time of the year that the project started, I was not at all optimistic about a sixty (60) day construction window but Moser pulled it off. The city requested some additional dirt work in the area of the dog park so we are currently waiting for the fence company to re-install the dog park perimeter. The park is available for your pooch but the usable space is temporarily much smaller. We are sorry for the inconvenience.      

We closed on the PPP, LLC property (76 Acres +/-) on December 4th. The transfer is now reflected on the Sandusky County Tax Duplicates so we officially have those acres available for economic development. Speaking of Economic Development, the city has received numerous inquiries and requests for information, which typically signal property sales. It is my hope that multiple businesses reveal their development plans thru out the winter months.    

Work continues at the city's East Sub-station. We have discovered a few surprises in our underground work but that is not out of the ordinary. The practice of “as-built” construction drawings was not as commonplace as they are today. Superintendent Lachner expects the sub-station to be back on-line by the end of January. Tentatively we are looking at taking the West Sub out of service in the March/April timeframe for the same upgrades.

The Woodland Avenue /Route 20 Lift Station suffered an incident recently that eventually took it out of service. This lift station is over thirty (30) feet deep and the constant head pressure from ground water in the area caused a connecting boot to fail. The failure allowed backfill around the station to enter it and disable the pumps. The Waste Water Treatment Plant immediately notified the Environmental Service Department and they have corrected the problem. 

We have currently met three (3) times for the purpose of negotiating a Collective Bargaining Agreement and I believe we are very close to signing off on a tentative agreement. More information will of course be available at our December 30th Special Meeting.
