The Greensburg Board of Works met Monday evening. Brian Wenning, on behalf of St. Mary's Catholic Church, requested road closures for the 8th Annual "On Eagles Wings" 5K scheduled to take place on August 29th. He noted that the route will be the same as used in previous years and stated that last year's 5K had 935 participants. The board approved the request for road closures from 8:00 am to 10:00 am.
Greensburg Police Chief Brendan Bridges requested, and received approval, to make conditional offers to 2 individuals based on interviews conducted in a Board of Works Executive Session. Chief Bridges also requested the transfer of equipment to retiring Greensburg Police Officer Dave Wilson. According to city ordinance, service weapons are transferred to officers retiring with at least 20 years of service. The board approved the request.
Greensburg Fire Chief Nathan Stoermer discussed the need to revise job descriptions for the fire department. He received approval to make 3 conditional job offers to fill positions for 3 retiring personnel. Additional interviews will take place to fill open positions due to two recent resignations. He also requested, and received approval, to spend no more than $3,700 to purchase a new ice maker that will be placed at the fire station, but is used by all city departments.
City Engineer Ron May submitted proposed amendment 5 to the Preliminary Engineering Agreement for Veterans Way Phase II Project in the amount of $12,900. The amendment will be used to update the agreement to current state regulations. The Board approved the request as the contracting agency, but the full amount will be paid by the Redevelopment Commission.
Mayor Joshua Marsh requested a recommendation by the board to the city council to amend city, police, and fire personnel handbooks. A subcommittee would be created to review and rewrite the handbooks. A request for additional fob scanners for the Water Utility Office was tabled pending obtaining prices. Mayor Marsh also requested permission to invite bids for a city website rebuild. The project would likely be paid from riverboat funds. Selected companies would be invited to make presentations to the board. The board approved the request.
The Board of Works will hold its next meeting on March 2nd at 5:00 pm at Greensburg City Hall.
