City Manager's Update to Council August 19, 2014
The U.S. and Ohio EPA will be in town
tomorrow to conduct monitoring, inspection and
evaluation of our 2004 Consent Decree. I
expect the evaluation to go well as Clyde has kept up
with the decree commitments and worked continuously with
the Ohio EPA when minor changes were needed to be made
to the Long Term Control Plan. Following the
evaluation, we will be meeting with design engineers and
the Ohio EPA Staff to finalize the EQ Basin design
concept prior to executing a contract.
NOMS PROPERTY STATUS
- The Environmental Service Department (EVS) has
extended the water main to the NOMS property and are
awaiting final site plans before terminating the main.
Clyde Light and Power also has the electric conduit
extended to the site on the North side of US RT 20 and
are also awaiting final site plans before performing the
bore under the highway. The city is being granted
a utility easement thru the site for future extensions
over to CR 175 when needed. As far as the NOMS
schedule goes, they are expecting to start site work on
October 1st, let steel bids on October 15th and be under
roof by December 1st.
SOUTH STREET BRIDGE
CONSTRUCTION - We have received a
preliminary set of construction plans for the South
Street Bridge from Mosser Construction, Fremont.

Culvert with a clear span of 26'-0". The
completion date for the construction is November 30,
UPDATE ON ABANDONED RESIDENCES DEMOLITIONS

Ralston and the other at 199 Buckeye Street have now

is working directly with the Sandusky County Health
Department to get at least one more "tear down" in the
city before the funds are depleted.
