|Marc Maxwell | Sulphur Springs City manager|
The following is the monthly report given by Sulphur Springs City Manager Marc Maxwell to the City Council at its Aug. 2 meeting:
BELLVIEW/KYLE — This project is finally completed just in time for the school year. The project replaced 600 feet of water line and 2,200 feet of sewer line. The intersection of Kyle and Davis has been reconstructed in reinforced concrete, and Kyle, Bellview and Davis have all received a new plant-mix overlay. The project was budgeted at $160,981 excluding the overlay.
PLANT-MIX OVERLAY -- Our contractor, Drake Construction, is finished placing a plant-mix overlay on streets we previously identified, namely: South Davis, Austin, Parkins, Forrest Lane, North Moore, Moore, Nicholson, Ingram, Ashcroft, Goodman, Debord, Seventh, California, Milligan, Colorado, Fleming, Pollard, Calvert, Alabama, Lundy, Patton, Stacy, Phyllis, Beckham, Alamo, Bowie, Elm, Brinker, Craig, Bellview, Kyle, Kimberly and Michel. This project was budgeted at $400,000.
COMO STREET -- This street received a full 2-inch asphalt overlay this month at a cost of approximately $89,000.
HIGHLAND SEWER -- The contractor for this sewer replacement project is on site and has begun some preliminary work on the project, such as inspecting the lines, etc. I expect the project to begin in earnest this month. The project will replace two sewer lines which pass through the backyards of homes on Hillcrest, Highland and Woodcrest. The contractor will utilize "trenchless" technology to minimize the impact to homeowners. The project has a budget of $181,597.
ACCIDENTS AND CLAIMS -- Lt. Sewell gets the Homer Simpson award for rear-ending another vehicle on the square. There were no injuries. Damage to both vehicles was very minor.
A homeowner claims that the city caused minor damage to his plumbing while cleaning the sewer main. Damages claimed are approximately $300.
We had no Worker's Compensation claims in August.
MISCELLANEOUS -- Elsewhere around the city, employees:
