City Manager Report

CITY MANAGERS REPORT Report Period - March 10, 2022 to April 7, 2022 Ginger Allen, City Manager PW Shop Update: This week city staff was asked to select the colors for the PW Shop building. Staff choose “desert sand” for the major portion of the building, trimmed with “KoKo Brown” and “Rustic Red” on the garage doors, entrance doors and east and west end building gables. New Scio City Hall: City staff met with Eleanor Ferguson Renly and Nicole Zedwick, two local women with professional backgrounds in interior and exterior design. They have both agreed to work with city staff on the city hall building designs. A second meeting will take place on April 12th, where more design ideas will be shared before meeting with our City Engineer and Studio 3 Architecture. Open houses for the public will take place before a final decision proposal to council. City Handbook: A draft copy of the new City of Scio Employee Handbook is in this council packet. Please review the materials thoroughly. I would like to have a work session on Monday, April 25, 2022, to go over the handbook prior to the council meeting scheduled on May 9, 2022. City Charter: The first draft will be sent out with the May 9, 2022, council packets. Safe Routes to School Project: The City Engineer, Scio Fire Chief and Scio School Superintendent, along with city staff met and reviewed the plans for NW 1st Ave. showing preliminary bulb-out/curb ramp layouts. It was agreed that the plans do not present any issued prohibiting the bulb outs as presented by the City Engineer. The project is scheduled to take place early next spring 2023. Small City Allotment Project: City staff is waiting on final engineering drawings from Dyer Partnership. The encroachment permit submitted to Linn County Road Department was approved with specific instructions to the city engineer. Once the engineering drawings are completed the project will go out to bid. Public Restrooms and Parkland Development Grant: Staff is still working on discussions about a pre-fab restroom. The goal of completing this project before Lamb and Wool Fair is off the table. Once staff has had discussions with the various pre-fab companies a presentation will come before council for approval.
