City Manager's Update to Council October 18th, 2016
All of the inspections have been completed on the new Parks Admin/Maintenance Building and they are proceeding to move into their new headquarters. Once their move is complete, we will proceed with demolition of the old building and prepare to expand the upper parking lot next summer as part of the paving projects. The Clyde Light and Power Building is still awaiting the final state inspection but the asphalt replacement work is completed and the building is ready for occupancy.
The Midvale/Elmdale Storm Sewer, Phase II is ready for construction. The construction lay-out was completed last week and the catch basins have been ordered. The 304 lineal feet of 27" reinforced concrete pipe is ready for delivery and should arrive late this week or early next week. The installation will finally bring a storm water outlet to the North end of Elmdale and Midvale allow us to continue solving water issues in the area as funding allows. The General Services Department will be completing this work with the assistance of Clyde Light and Power.
The Sandusky County Communities Foundation held their Grant Award Ceremony today at The Neeley Center on the Terra State Community College Campus. The city accepted a check for $5,270 for Inclusive Play Equipment to be installed at Thaddeus Hurd Park. We would like to thank the foundation's board for this generous grant.
The Ohio Publics Works (OPW), District 5 Executive Committee will meet on November 15th in Perrysburg. The committee will review the ranking of all district-wide applications submitted thru the county sub-committees. If our points hold thru this district meeting, we should be well above the funding line. If funded, we will be receiving $325,000 from OPW for the Hamer Street Project.
