Public Works

The Light Weight Aggregate Seal Coat project bid was held this past Tuesday, with only one bid received from Vance Brothers. The bid was slightly below budgeted amounts and will be present to the Board at the September 4th meeting.

Crews placed 28.5 tons of asphalt patch in preparation for the Light Weight Aggregate Seal Coat project, with two streets remaining on the list, painted pavement markings at 3 locations, cleaned 19,648 feet of sewer lines, and spent the majority of today inspecting storm inlets and drainage channels for debris. The focus was in response to the forecasted storms the weekend; 1 to 3 inches of rain has been predicted for the Raytown area.

The concrete curb, sidewalk, and pavement replacement project is progressing ahead of schedule in fact the contractor is anticipated to complete all concrete work sometime next week.
