City Administrator’s Report for 6/22/2012

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


The Raytown Arts Council has announced their 2012 Summer Musical “CINDERELLA” based on the book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and the music of Richard Rogers. Performances are at 7:00pm on both July 13th and 14th and a 2:00pm matinee on July 15th at the Robert B. Atkin Performing Arts Center, 6019 Blue Ridge Boulevard (Raytown High School – South Door). Ticket sales begin Monday, June 25th, at the Raytown Hy-Vee Store; prices are $8 in advance, $10 at the door, and $5 for children 12 and under.

Community Development

Staff (Community Development and Public Works) submitted applications this week for 2013-2014 Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality (CMAQ) and Surface Transportation Program (STP) grants. The applications submitted concern the Downtown Streetscape Phase 2 (Blue Ridge Blvd. from 60th Terrace to 63rd Street); 59th Street Sidewalks (From Blue Ridge Blvd. to Woodson Avenue), Highway 350 Bicycle-Pedestrian Trail Phase 2 (from immediately east of Maple Avenue to Raytown Road) projects, and replacement of the 83rd Street bridge. Each of the grant applications requires a twenty percent (20%) local match. The City will find out which, if any, of the grant applications are approved later this year.

The Construction Permit for interior finish of the planned Chipotle restaurant (located at the intersection of Gregory Boulevard and Highway 350) has been issued and inspections for the underground plumbing were completed this week. Rough-in plumbing, framing and electrical inspections for the other two tenant spaces within the building were also performed this week.

Public Works

After completing seven interviews with two external and five internal candidates and then contemplating the decision for several weeks Bryan Holt was promoted to the position of Public Works Operations Supervisor this week. The position was vacated by Steve Wright who retired earlier this year. Bryan’s former position was that of a crew leader. Congratulations Bryan!

An example of how simple things can make a big impact. This week public works repainted the islands downtown in an effort to address the little details before the all-star game. It is surprising how much impact a little yellow paint can have. The Public Works crews will be working to repaint the islands on Raytown Road between 350 Highway early Saturday morning to avoid heavy traffic.

The minor renovation at city hall to provide more court records storage is nearly complete. Heating and air conditioning vent revision and carpet is all that will remain next week.
