11/7/2017 - Board of Works Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg Board of Works met Monday evening. Mayor Dan Manus briefed the board members on purchasing a Freightliner Lightning Loader truck to be used by the street department. The truck would provide easier disposal of tree limbs and heavy trash. The truck is a demo model with about 3,000 miles and would be available immediately instead of the normal 6-8 month timeframe. The cost of about $175,000 would be paid through EDIT funds already budgeted by the city. Mayor Manus also discussed the possible purchase of a leaf vacuum next year.

The board shared comments they have received regarding the new garbage and recycling containers. It was pointed out that recycling has increased significantly, with 75 percent of homes participating in the project.

Wendy Blake of Mainstreet Greensburg briefed the board on the Holiday Walk scheduled for December 9th. Street closures from 9:00 11:00 am were approved beginning at the intersection of N. Franklin and E. North Streets.

City Engineer Ron May updated the board on the completion of the Barachel Lane and Montgomery Road improvement project. The project, which cost about $101,000, will be paid by the Decatur County Redevelopment Commission. He provided the board with information received through Title VI surveys over the past year. After reviewing letters of interest, American Structurepoint was selected for engineering and management for the Veterans Way project. Eight letters of interest have been received for the Central Street sidewalks project and are currently being reviewed and scored.

Police Chief Brendan Bridges received approval for a contract with QPH, for approximately $3,600, beginning in January 2018 for HVAC inspection and maintenance. He received approval to use funds from the law enforcement continuing education fund to purchase back-up weapons. Approximately $4,500 will be spent this year with an additional $4,500 in 2018. The board authorized a transfer, pending approval of the city council, of about $11,000 to outfit two cars with new in-car cameras. Four more cars will need updates, but he is in the process of identifying grant opportunities. The board will interview candidates on November 20th for the new officer position that will be added as part of the 2018 city budget. The board also approved a payment of just over $518,000 for the sewer project.

The board will hold its next meeting on December 4th at 5:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
