CITY MANAGERS REPORTReport Period - December 8, 2022 to January 6, 2023Ginger Allen, City ManagerPublic Works Shop Update: The Public Works Shop is completely enclosed and interior walls are going up. Bi-weekly meetings with Project Manager, Ryan Quigley, city staff and Medcalf Construction continue to keep staff abreast of the project. Anyone wishing to visit the site may do so by contacting city hall and arranging a site visit with Ko Knurowski and Cathy Martin (503-394-8152 or 503-394-8154). Due to safety measures visits must be scheduled in advance. Public Restroom: The Pre-Fab Restroom has been ordered and the design phase has been sent back to the city for final approval. Once city staff approves the design, we send it back to Blazer Industries where their engineering staff will provide electrical, structural and mechanical engineering services. Once completed the drawing plans go to the State of Oregon for final approval. The state takes 4-6 weeks for review processing. When Blazer Industries receives the approved plans, it will take another 6-8 weeks to build the restroom, barring any material delays. Thus, we can plan on a late May, early June installation date. Parks and Tree Committee Update: The committee chairperson has resigned as of January 3, 2023 from the Parks and Tree Committee. This resignation impacts the committee in that we no longer have enough members for a quorum. Thus, city staff will continue to meet with the two remaining members and keep the park project(s) moving forward. The tree removal at Thomas Creek Park is complete and reveals a much larger park area then imagined. This area will continue to be under review for development purposes.NW 1st Avenue Safe Routes to School Grant Meeting: City Engineer, Ryan Quigley, Scio School Superintendent, Steve Martinelli and city staff are scheduled to meet on January 10th at 3:30 p.m. to begin discussions on the safety improvements scheduled to take place in late May, early June of 2023 on N.W. 1stAvenue. More information will be provided to council as this project moves forwards.
