Sulphur Springs City Manager Marc Maxwell’s Report To City Council

 

 

TO: CITY COUNCIL
FROM: CITY MANAGER, MARC MAXWELL
SUBJ: MANAGER’S REPORT

CLAIMS – Unable to provide claims report this month – flu season.
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN – We are applying for a $300,000 grant from the General
Land Office to perform the plan. This will delay the plan a couple of months, but
$300,000 is $300,000.
SENIOR CITIZENS CENTER – Construction
continues. We will be connecting power to the
building this month.
COLLEGE STREET – Little changed from last
month. The concrete contractor, 5W Contracting has
poured concrete all the way past Carter Rookson.
They are now finishing the excavation of curb &
gutter and sidewalks on the remaining 1,950 feet to
Como Street. At the present rate the project should be
finished by June.
PACIFIC PARK – We are very close to finishing the project. We just lack a bit more
sod.
WATER FILTER REHABILITATION – This $3.2 million project will rehabilitate all
6 filters at the water treatment plant. Work on Filter #4, the most problematic filter is
nearing completion. We continue to be impressed with the quality of work.
LEAGUE STREET DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS – This drainage project at the

KCS railroad was authorized for $265,000 at the August 15th City Council meeting. This
project began 4 weeks ago. It has already resolved the flooding problems at Main &
League. We are still making improvements on the north side of the KCS tracks. Expect
League Street to remain closed for 2 more weeks.
