6/4/2019 - Greensburg Redevelopment Commission Special Meeeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg Redevelopment Commission met in special session Monday evening. City Engineer Ron May provided an update on the Lincoln Street project. He stated that the project was completed with repairs made and all punch list items finished. He noted that a gauging template was used for the entire length of the project area and met specifications, which allow a one-quarter inch variation in a 16 foot area. The commission members expressed significant concerns about why the problems existed and the number of complaints that they are all receiving from the public. Mr. May used Veterans Way as an example. Veterans Way was built completely new while the Lincoln Street project was designed to build on as much of the old road as possible. He said that the storm inlets created some of the issues. Representatives from Globe Asphalt addressed the commission and explained the process used to fix the issues identified. They also provided the city with an additional one-year warranty on the repaired areas. The commission approved the final Globe Asphalt claim of about $300,000 for the Lincoln Street project.

The commission also approved spending up to $15,000 to demolish the former leasing office and clubhouse for Edgewater Apartments as part of the Veterans Way, Phase II project. Edgewater Apartments repurposed as much material as they could salvage. Although the Veterans Way project won't likely go to contract until July 2020, it would cost the city more to restore the building instead of demolition. IDEM clearance and utility removal will be required prior to demolition. The demolition will cost $4,800 out of the Veterans Way Bond with additional unknown total costs for dumpsters.

The RDC will hold its next meeting on July 18th at 6:30 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
