City Administrator’s Report for 6/17/2011

City Administrator’s Report

06-17-2011

FROM: Mahesh Sharma, City Administrator

Economic Development
Save-A-Lot Grocery opened on Thursday, June 16th. As you will recall, the project is a component of an overall redevelopment/353 plan for the entire Center 63 retail center. A draft Memorandum of Understanding (development agreement) is currently being reviewed by staff and legal counsel. As promised to the Board of Aldermen in January, a final draft of the agreement will be provided to the Board prior to execution.

Sutherland Lumber Company project is advancing as construction and demolition are currently underway in the former Wal-Mart building. Earlier in the year, Sutherland’s was granted a variance from the Board of Zoning Adjustments to allow for a thirty-five foot tall monument sign. The firm recently withdrew that variance application seeking to simply increase the size of the sign on the front of the building. The BZA granted the request. As such, a large monument sign will not be erected in front of the store. Sutherland’s is still targeting a Fall 2011 opening date.

EMS
Received notification from the Missouri Bureau of Emergency Medical Services Department that Raytown EMS received a one hundred percentile(100%) scoring during the renewal inspection for the City’s ambulance service license. This five year review includes areas such as policies and procedures, patient protocols, narcotic oversight, equipment, and quality assurance programs.

Additionally, on Wednesday, June 15th, Raytown EMS was recognized by Governor Jay Nixon for their efforts during the initial response phase to the Joplin, Missouri tornado disaster.
