TO: CITY COUNCIL
FROM: CITY MANAGER, MARC MAXWELL SUBJ: MANAGER’S REPORT
PACIFIC PARK DRAINAGE PROJECT – This project is progressing well. This project is finished. The barricades will remain in place until Friday so that the concrete will cure a bit more before we subject it to traffic. Allowing traffic on the concrete before it has had sufficient time to cure would lead to cracking and premature failure. The estimated final cost of the project is $43,000, well under the $85,000 budget.
SUNSET STREET – This project is on hold until we can construct the Connally/League intersection. We are trying to get that intersection open before the school year begins.
CONNALLY STREET – The Capital Construction Division is constructing the Connally/League intersection at one end of the street and the drainage system at the other end of the street.
WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT – Today was a milestone day at the wastewater treatment plant. We began testing the new aerators today. Tonight we will fill the aeration basin with treated effluent, and we will begin a 5-day aeration test tomorrow. After that we will begin treating wastewater with the new aerators. This marks a turning point in the project. Almost all of the work remaining is street construction, sidewalks and grass. This has been an $18 million project. We expect to come in a little under budget. We expect to be finished in January.
CLAIMS – We did not have any workers’ compensation claims in July.
We had one liability claim from a driver who claimed damages to their vehicle after driving around city equipment in a work zone. TML denied the claim.
