City Manager Report

CITY MANAGERS REPORT Report Period January 9, 2020 – February 5, 2020 Ginger Allen, City Manager February 24, 2020 Work Session Just a reminder of the 2nd Scio City Council Work Session coming up on Monday, February 24, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. Following the work session, city staff will present information as to “why a new city hall/public works shop, how the city will fund the buildings and what to expect if the city does not build a new city hall/public works shop. Public Works Bio-Solids Plan In September 2019 the City experienced an “anaerobic lagoon flip”. This flip created a rancid odor, which ebbed and flowed throughout the city for over four weeks. I reported to the council and citizens alike that the City Staff would work on developing a Bio-solids Lagoon Maintenance Plan. Tonight I am happy to report that the first steps have been taken towards that plan. Staff will be working with Darrel Lockard Consulting, LLC, who also provided Water and Wastewater Supervisory Oversite to our public works crewmen, city engineering firm Dyer Partnership and DEQ to develop a plan that will be productive and affordable. While city’s that operate on a lagoon system cannot eliminate odor entirely, there are steps that can be taken to reduce sludge build-up while suppressing odor. I will provide updates on this process as we move forward with this plan.
