The Street Report for September 2020 was reviewed.  Arnie reported the crew working on Gentry Street have gone around the corner to Market Street, working toward College St.  New culvert has gone in and they are working on curb and sidewalk at this time.  Arnie said he would like to have Gentry Street and this portion of Market paved before Thanksgiving.  The total as of September 30 for Gentry Street is $169,102.72.

The Medical Plaza rebuild project has started back up once again with a new rock hammer that has been purchased.  The crew has been hammering rock both yesterday and today.  Total to date for Medical Plaza is $48,423.62.  During their down time, this crew has been working at Hospital Drive replacing wheelchair ramps and warning tiles at the sidewalk corners. 

At McCabe Park, the walking trail is just about completed.  Arnie said he was working with the high school mountain bike club on the design of the bike path.  Of the work done on the walking path, a total of $171,288.51 has been spent and approximately $83,000 of that will be reimbursed for the Grant that had been approved.

The Budget Summary was reviewed, Arnie reported the Postage line item has gone over due to shipping traffic light monitors to be repaired and the added insurance is what was costly. 

He expects a $1.2-$1.4 million carryover this year.

The meeting adjourned at 12:40 p.m.
