City Administrator’s Report for 11/9/2012

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


Public Works

Public Works and Community Development completed two Transportation Alternatives grant applications to MARC this week. The applications included the second phase of the 350 Highway Bike/Ped Trail and the second phase of the Downtown Streetscape project. MARC received 43 applications. Of the 43 projects submitted: 36 were trail projects, 5 were aesthetic and scenic projects, one was for historic preservation and one was for safety and education. Staff believes the Downtown Streetscape will have the best chance of receiving grant funding due to the 4 other projects competing against the streetscape project. Total funding available for Missouri entities is $5.3 million and there were over $16 million in requests for grant funding submitted.

Changes to the Finance area continued this week. The carpet installation was completed and the revised counter was installed. There is still significant detail work to complete before the counter area will be completed.

On Thursday, November 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Public Works will host a public meeting and a public hearing regarding the proposed White Oak West Line A Sanitary Sewer Construction Project. This project received environmental clearance for construction as part of the original Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Study, but the clearance was only valid for 5 years. The meetings are the last step necessary to extend the environmental clearance for an additional 5 years. The meetings will discuss why the project is needed and what the impacts of construction will be.
