City Administrator’s Report for 4/19/2012

City Administrator’s Report FROM: Mahesh Sharma, City Administrator

Information Technology
Information Technology Services has completed the acquisition, installation and configuration of new servers and hardware designated for document management, code enforcement, citizen services and finance business applications. Data migration of current business databases and processes are currently underway.

Request for service included; 35 computers, 2 telephones, 2 government channels, 1 door lock, and 1 website update. The network, server, telephone, government channel, electronic security doors and website are at optimum functionality.

Public Works
Public Works in cooperation with Midwest Public Risk hosted a testing and evaluation event in Raytown for new sewer inspection technology. Employees from Gladstone, Belton and Grain Valley attended the session. The new technology utilizes sound waves to determine if pipes are clean and open. The technology performed well and staff will continue to evaluate the usefulness and cost effectiveness of the technology.
Public Works staff spent much of the week monitoring storm inlets for blockages and drainage issues. Staff assisted the Missouri Department of Transportation in clearing a storm sewer blockage at 350 Highway and Maple Avenue. The location has been the source of repeated after-hours callouts. Through the cooperation of both entities the source of the problem was identified and fixed which should eliminate the frequent call-outs to the location.

Police
Raytown Police Department continues to prepare for the communications tower installation behind City Hall and the related radio upgrades. The radio equipment for all the remote sites has been installed. The equipment for the consoles in the Dispatch Center have arrived and are currently being stored at Commenco. There has been a delay in moving forward with this project due to the fact that Verizon is waiting to receive the “go-ahead” from the State authorities concerning clearance on historic site review.

Construction of the tower should start in July.
