Also present were the City Manager, City Attorney, City Clerk/Treasurer, City Engineer, Asst. City Engineer, and the Fire Chief.
a. Request by Chamber of Commerce to
use City parking lot at the corner of North Main Street and East Sherman Avenue
for Fall Festival activities on September 23, 2000.
Ms. Carrie Chisholm, Tourism Manager of the Chamber of Commerce, explained that the Chamber would like to use the city parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on September 23, 2000, for their downtown Fall Festival. Most of the businesses on Sherman Ave. East have been notified and do not object to the use of the parking lot.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to approve the request by the Chamber of Commerce to use the city parking lot at the corner of North Main Street and East Sherman Avenue for Fall Festival activities on September 23, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to accept the minutes from the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting held July 20, 2000; minutes of Historic Preservation Commission meeting held August 2, 2000; minutes of Sign Review Committee meeting held July 31, 2000; Electrical, Building and Plumbing Permit Reports for August, 2000; minutes of Dwight Foster Public Library Board meeting held June 5, 2000; and the minutes of the Special Projects Committee meeting held August 4, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
a. Review and approve Final Plat for Robert L. Klement Business Park.
City Manager Wilmet and City Engineer Woods reviewed the Robert L. Klement Business Park final plat with the Council.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the final plat for Robert L. Klement Business Park. The motion carried on a voice vote.
b. Update on Fire Department project and authorization to let bids.
Fire Chief Emrick and Mr. Peter Weston of The Design Alliance addressed the City Council and reviewed the design for the addition and remodel of the Fire Station.
The plans call for an addition of 24-25 ft. to the apparatus bays to the north with four tall doors. On the east side of the building two-foot jut outs will be done to be able to recess the firemen's lockers into the wall and, therefore, give more room between the lockers and the first row of trucks. A small room is also planned in the northwest corner for clothes, showers for contaminated firemen to clean up, and hose storage. The remodel will also make the bathrooms ADA compliant. The plans are also to have the new addition finished on the outside to blend with the front.
A second, alternate bid is also going to be asked for to get proposals for refinishing and updating the entire outside of the fire station to fit with the look of the new police station. The alternate bid will also include relighting of the entire bay and resurfacing of the floor. Due to the fact that there is only $400,000 in the budget for the remodeling of the Fire Station, it may not be possible to do these projects at this time.
After discussion, Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to let bids for an addition and remodeling of the Fire Station to include an addition to the apparatus bay, an equipment room and locker space with an alternate bid for relighting the entire bay, resurfacing the floor, and refinishing the entire outside of the building. On call of the roll, the motion carried unanimously.
City Manager Wilmet reviewed a copy of the official notice for bid for the Robert L. Klement Business Park development from Earth Tech with the Council. The notice calls for a pre-bid meeting on August 28, 2000 at 1:00 p.m., with bids due August 31, 2000 at 2:00 p.m.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Gray moved to authorize to let bids for the development of the Robert L. Klement Business Park. On call of the roll, the motion carried unanimously.
