Dedicated Sewer Main
Progress continues on this project. There is nothing significantly new to report on except no major hiccups to the project; knock on wood.
Second River Crossing Water Project Phase I
As reported in last council update, work continues with assistance from Ken Rizzio on the application to the EDA for a $2.5 million grant. We will be meeting June 22, 2015 at 6:00 P.M. to review this project as well as the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Phase II Project in a public workshop.
Wastewater Treatment Plant Project Phase II
As with the Water Project Phase I, we will review the status of the WWTP Project Phase II. Due to continued expansion at Continental Dairy Facilities and fairlife, the city must address capacity issues at our WWTP. On June 22, Steve Luke and I will present the concept/design and the price for additional upgrades in a 6:00 P.M. workshop. Because there are numerous issues to this next upgrade, it would be better to have our initial meeting dedicated to this one item. I have already begun the process of locating funds for this project as it will be complicated and time consuming.
West Randall Street Reconstruction Project
No changes to the status of this project. Latest word was that work will not commence until after July 4th weekend. As a reminder, the intersection of 64th and West Randall will be reconstructed as part of this project. There will be no thru traffic and for the first stage, eastbound traffic will be directed north onto 64th Avenue. During the second stage of construction, eastbound traffic will be directed south onto 64th Avenue.
