Sulphur Springs City Manager’s Report





CLAIMS – We had two workers’ compensation claims in January. In addition, two police officers received minor lacerations in separate incidents. 

We received one liability claim in January for damages to a building from which a city employee had been removing Christmas lights.  

SENIOR CITIZENS CENTER –Hawk Construction has begun the dirt work. In addition, city staff will likely improve the underground drainage system to accommodate runoff from the site. 

PACIFIC PARK – XLNT Construction is about to begin constructing the basketball pavilion. They delivered an office trailer to the site. XLNT plans to complete the foundation before the building arrives in late March.  

When the pavilion is complete, we will demolish the old basketball courts and grade the park’s interior. Then we will install irrigation and sod. 

COLLEGE STREET – College Street is open down to Patton StreetWe are now installing sewer from Patton to Ramsey. After that, we will install water in the same segment. We have completed all the drainage improvements at College & Ramsey and Putman & Ramsey. The Capital Construction Division is rebuilding the College & Ramsey intersection in concrete.  

Once we complete improvements to Ramsey Street, we will continue to Como Street. After that, we will pause to turn our attention to Holiday Drive.
