5/7/2019 - Greensburg Board of Works Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg Board of Works met Monday evening. Street Commissioner Mark Klosterkemper and City Engineer Ron May presented the board with Supplemental Agreement 2 with INDOT for Veterans Way, Phase II. Mr. May explained INDOT was looking for projects they could support by the end of the state's fiscal year on June 30th. While there were no new projects, a request was submitted and approved by INDOT for $847,691.83 with the city responsible for a 20 percent match. The additional funding will be used for Veterans Way, Phase II. The funds can be used for costs that have been incurred and costs that will still be incurred. Examples would include if the right-of-way property value increased prior to purchase, funds that could be reimbursed to the Redevelopment Commission for properties that were paid 100 percent of the purchase price from RDC funds, properties that have not been acquired, and additional right-of-way costs for properties based on changes in the design process. The board approved the supplemental agreement.

Sewage and Wastewater Treatment Plant Superintendent Jeff Smith provided the board with bids for the Sand Creek force main replacement. The board awarded the bid to C&H/M Excavating from Milan at a total project cost of $79,861.00. The project is expected to take about 2 months.

Mayor Dan Manus presented the board with payment application 1 for the Main Street Revitalization Project at a cost of $53,926.74. The board approved the payment. The project is scheduled for completion in September.

Mr. May informed the board that the Greensburg Redevelopment Commission will meet on May 16th at 6:30 pm at Greensburg City Hall. During the meeting, representatives from Baker Tilly will present the budget and project list for the next fiscal year.

Building Commissioner Kathy Reynolds presented the board with a list of residences that were not in compliance with the city ordinance regarding height of grass and grass in the street. She emphasized that there can be no grass in the street and grass in yards cannot exceed 7 inches in height.

Mr. Klosterkemper announced that heavy trash pickup will take place during the week of May 13th-17th. There will be no brush or yard waste picked up that week. Any appliances, furniture, and construction debris will only be picked up during heavy trash week. Those materials will be collected the same day as your normal trash collection. Electronics, tires, and paint can no longer be collected as trash due to state laws and residents are urged to contact the Decatur County Solid Waste Management District for alternatives.

The board will hold its next meeting on June 3rd at 5:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
