TO: CITY COUNCIL
FROM: CITY MANAGER, MARC MAXWELL
SUBJ: MANAGER’S REPORT
CLAIMS – We did not have any workers’ compensation claims in March. We had two liability claims in March. One was for a sewer overflow. The other will likely become a lawsuit we will discuss in a future executive session.
SPRING CLEANUP – The annual spring cleanup will be April 24–29 from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. It will be at the usual location ¼ mile east of Flowserve. It is open to city residents only. Bring your water bill and driver’s license. No chemicals, no wet paint, no batteries, no tires, no appliances with refrigerant, and it is your last chance to haul off fallen tree limbs until next year, so put it on your calendar.
SENIOR CITIZENS CENTER –City staff has completed drainage improvements to the underground drainage system to accommodate runoff from the site. In addition, they have drilled the piers, and work on the foundation is in progress.
PACIFIC PARK – Construction of the basketball pavilion is underway. The piers have been drilled and poured. Work on the foundation is underway. We will demolish the old basketball courts and grade the park’s interior when the pavilion is complete. Then we will install irrigation and sod.
COLLEGE STREET – College Street is open down to Patton Street. We have completed the sewer-main installation from Patton to Ramsey and are now installing the water main in the same segment. I expect the water-main installation to be completed (to Ramsey) in ten days. 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.
REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES – Finance Director Lesa Smith will present the report on revenues and expenditures.
STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM – Atmos has finished the gas main replacement project on Como Street and Ardis Street. Crews paved Ardis Street. Como Street is being cement stabilized now, and they will pave it next week. Expect a new SIP list in next month’s manager’s report.
