City Manager's Update to Council
September 15, 2015
work at the Solar Field has begun. Brush on the
West side of the field has now been removed and final
grading of the area will be completed over the next two
weeks. AEP and the city are currently working on a
Press Release and the details for the Official Ground
Breaking Ceremony on October 2, 2015. That
Ceremony will be held at the Solar Field at 10am.
Light and Power has been working on the Solar
Interconnection and that work is going smoothly.
The poles have been set, cross arms connected and the
conductors are being hung this week. We are
awaiting some final equipment specifications from our
electrical engineer and then will order our switches,
capacitors and cabinets.
Ohio Publics Works (OPW), Sandusky County Sub-Committee
will meet this Thursday 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 2016 Paving Program, which was
submitted, has a very strong preliminary score. If
we are able to negotiate enough priority points on
Thursday, we should be in the funding range. As I
have mentioned in the past, these projects are peer
reviewed and extremely competitive. If funded, we
will be receiving $175,000 from OPW.
Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) has completed the
Annual Preventative Maintenance (APM) on Oxidation Ditch
No.2 (ODIC2). The work went well and ODIC2 is
back on-line. The plant is now preparing to drain
ODIC1, perform its APM and have it back on line prior to
the start of the Equalization (EQ) Basin construction.
on the topic of the EQ Basin, we will be submitting the
DEFA Water Pollution Control Loan Fund Agreement, yet
this week. Once that agreement is finalized, we
will proceed with the execution of the construction
contract with the Adena Corporation, out of Mansfield,
Ohio. The first loan payment will not be made
until January 1, 2017.
Environmental Service Department has the main line
installed on George Street and the installation passed
the pressure test. Once the bacterial testing is
complete, they will start hooking up services to the new
8" water line. They have currently pulled off the
job site to prepare for the upcoming fair.
of the fair, it is hard to believe that it is that time
of year again. City crews started working on fair
set-up last week and it will continue this week until
everything is hooked-up and ready for the "soft opening"
on Thursday evening. The weather forecast is
currently a little sketchy so let us hope it improves as
the week progresses. As always, Clyde will be
ready for another successful fair so come on out and
enjoy some "community spirit", have some great food, and
enjoy the weekend.
