CITY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT
Consent Item B: City Administrator Hanson explained that this is a very active time for concrete contractors. One of the reasons the bids came back so high was because the project wasn’t large enough to warrant moving crews off other projects in order to get this project done.
Alderman Fleming asked if the City were to pursue purchasing a swap loader truck, if this would allow the City to install the ramps.
Director of Public Works stated that it would take our guys too long to complete the ramps. The reason for bidding it was because there was federal grant money coming through the community development block grant office that would help off-set the cost. It was suggested that staff pool the ramp replacement project with other concrete projects.
A motion was made by Alderman Stallmann and seconded by Alderman Roach to accept Consent Item B. A voice vote was taken with a unanimous affirmative result and the motion passed.
