Concrete contractor has executed the contracts and staff anticipates the contractor to start next week.

The consultant for the design of the 350 Highway Bicycle/Pedestrian trail was completed with the selection of the consultant team of Cook, Flatt & Strobel of Kansas City in coordination with Sprinkle Consulting of Lutz, Florida. Now that the state law qualifications based selection has been made, staff has started the scope and fee negotiation with the selected team. Staff anticipates a request will be made of the Board at the first meeting in July to consider a contract and budget amendment.

The sanitary sewer maintenance crew has initiated a trial program of a new tree root control process. Tree roots combined with food grease are a major cause of sewer backups that are experienced in the sewer system. Currently the only treatment is to clean the line and cut tree roots out of the sewer main. This process does not kill the root but only removes the portion from inside the sewer main for a short period of time. The trial root treatment process is an application of root killing chemicals utilizing a foam delivery system in the sewer main. The chemical adheres to the root through contact with the foam and kills the roots in the sewer main. The treatment is guaranteed to prevent regrowth for 3 years and has proven effective in other municipalities. Staff anticipates utilizing the process in known tree root areas and those that are discovered by routine sewer inspections with the sewer camera system.
