MEETING 05/11/15 (Danner Park Lighting, Golf Board)
Monday evening, the City Council unanimously approved the low bid
for directional boring to make lighting repairs on the Green Field
at Danner Park. The lights currently do not work due to multiple
underground faults. The city received two bids for the boring
work, with the approved bid coming from North Missouri
Construction in the amount of $18,800. The city will purchase most
of the necessary material from CMU at cost and will hire an
electrician to complete the project. The city will seek electrical
labor because CMU is not certified to work with that high of
voltage. The estimated cost for the entire project is $26,000,
higher than originally estimated because prevailing wage was not
figured in to the original estimate.
lighting repair was not part of the park budget for this year;
therefore, the $20,000 set aside for trail improvements will be
shifted to cover the costs to repair the lighting. The remainder
of the expense will be paid for through the parks reserve funds.
The project is expected to be completed no later than May 25.
Monday, the council confirmed Mayor Chuck Haney's recommendation
of Mel Brown's appointment to the Golf Board.
executive session, the council unanimously approved the hiring of
Robert Thomas as a full-time street maintenance worker.
