9/4/2019 - Greensburg Board of Works Meeting - Click here to print this information

The Greensburg Board of Works met Tuesday evening. Mayor Dan Manus discussed an employee who has been on unpaid leave due to a medical issue. The employee has received 12 weeks of sick leave with an additional unpaid 45 days with an extension of another 30 days. The mayor stated that the city's insurance company will not allow the individual to be considered an employee. The board agreed to hold an executive session on Friday, September 6th to meet with the employee prior to making any decisions regarding employment status.

Tara Hagan from ARa submitted pay application 5 for the Main Street project in the amount of $51,810.64. The board approved the pay application. Ms. Hagan then provided a claim voucher that will be submitted to the state with the city receiving full reimbursement from the project grant. The project is still on track to be completed by the Fall Festival.

City Engineer Ron May opened the bids for the four projects that were submitted for the Community Crossings Matching Grant program for 2019. There has been no award of grant money at this point, but is expected to be awarded prior to the next board meeting. There were no bids on one of the projects and Mr. May is going to make contact with companies that did not bid to find out the reason. Companies will be able to submit bids for that project prior to the next board meeting. The board will take the bids that were received under advisement and make decisions at the next meeting contingent on funding approval from the state.

Street Commissioner Mark Klosterkemper submitted a contract with 5 Star Construction Company for $31,675.00 for the Wilder Street drainage project. The board approved the project contingent on approval of an additional appropriation by the city council. Mr. Klosterkemper also received approval to order an additional 200 trash totes at a total cost of $10,500. Delivery of the totes will take 8-12 weeks. He noted that about 30 are remaining from the initial order. The surplus has been used due to residents requesting additional totes. He reported that only 4 out of the initial order of 4,000 have been returned as damaged.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Superintendent Jeff Smith requested disposal of the department's 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4. The vehicle is not operational. The board approved the request, but the truck will go to the fire department for training and then taken to the salvage yard.

The board will hold its next meeting on October 7th at 5:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
