City Administrator’s Report for 11/11/2011

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

Community Development
The Jackson County Commuter Corridors Alternatives Analysis (JCCCAA) is developing and reviewing alternative transit options for the Rock Island Rail corridor through Raytown as well as a corridor that will extend through Independence and Blue Springs. The JCCCAA is considering different corridor alignments and transit options that will be presented at the public meeting for your review and comment. The ultimate purpose of the JCCCAA is to review the alternative transit options for the two corridors and then adopt a regionally preferred alternative for the Kansas City region. Adoption of the alternative will then position the Kansas City region to submit applications to the Federal government for funding of transit design and construction for these corridors. A public meeting is set for Tuesday, November 29th, at the Gamber Center (4 SE Independence Ave, Lee’s Summit) from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Staff is working with our credit card company to begin taking checks over the internet and phone. This should be active within a few weeks of testing and training. Please, direct all inquiries going forward to Briana Burrichter after today until further notice.

Fiscal Year Budget 2011–2012 is posted on the City’s website and printed copies will be available next week.

Public Works
Vance Brothers, the LWA seal program contractor, has completed the final sweeping to remove loose aggregate. Crews will continue to monitor the area(s) after the contractor has completed work and will sweep if necessary.

Wiedenmann & Godfrey, the sanitary and storm water infrastructure contractor, has completed work on the sanitary repair at the 86th Terrace and Evanston project and has replaced several of the driveways that were removed as part of the project. The contractor will continue restoration work in the area next week.

Staff attended a public meeting for the proposed bicycle and pedestrian trail Thursday, discussing the project with business owners and interested residents. The next step is to establish a preferred alignment with the consultant and start on detailed design of the project.
