Phase I Water Project – Second River Crossing
Again as was stated in the last memo, there is nothing new or significant to report on Phase I of the second river crossing project at this time. There have been a number of other issues requiring my attention up till now but this project will be back at the top of the list next week.
Dedicated Sewer Main Project
Work continues along 64th Avenue on the dedicated sewer main and COW water main. As of now the project is proceeding according to the timeline. The design/engineering for the lift-station is continuing and is still scheduled for bidding out late January of this year.
Department of Public Works Gates
At last the north and south gates are now fully operational. In order to open each gate a key card is required. That key card is obtained from city hall on a “need to have” basis aside from city employees. The cards are controlled by issuing an employee and/or vendor a key card that is numbered and documented. That key card is then programed as to where it is operational for that employee or vendor.
We now have access to the WWTP and the DPW sites only with a key card. Depending on budget considerations the key card system for city hall is next in line and needs to be considered for next year’s budget. City hall requires the same type of security as the locations for a number of obvious reasons. We will discuss those reasons and related needs during the budget workshops we’ll have in the upcoming months.
