MEETING MINUTES:

The Mayor called the meeting to order and turned it over to Councilman John Johnson. Johnson briefly presented an overview of the street problems and the available options for correcting these problems. Johnson pointed out that Council approved earlier Options #2, which would rebuild the streets but would not include curbs and gutters, for the street project. Council also approved MKEC as the engineering firm to prepare the working drawings. MKEC realized as they began preparing the plans that in order to construct the drainage ditches necessary to handle the water runoff, the work would be more extensive onto the owner's property than previously believed. MKEC offered as an alternative Option #2A. The width of the street would remain the same, but curbs and gutters would be added. The additional cost would be $80,000 and the project would take 30 more days to complete. Johnson recommended Option 2A in view of the information provided by MKEC.

Johnson turned the meeting over to Larry Henry and Jay Anglemyer, MKEC, to present the more technical aspects of the project. Henry stated that part of the street project will be to match the street alignment, 24ft. edge to edge (adding rolled curbs and gutters will reduce the width to 19ft). Drainage will be the biggest issue in order to extend the life of the streets. Additional inlets will be installed to drain the streets. The downside to building ditches is that they are not easily sustainable. The project will be phased so a resident's driveway will be blocked for not more than 2 weeks. The street will be built with an asphalt mat and concrete curbs and gutters. Asphalt alone will cut the life of the streets in half. With the addition of concrete curbs and gutters the life span is extended to 50 years. Henry also pointed out that driveway approaches will need to be redone. The project is expected to take 150 days from start to finish.

The meeting was opened to the public for comment.
