City Weekly: August 18, 2017

From the City of Edgewater:

City Weekly

The City of Edgewater is initiating a weekly communication tool that will provide more timely communication with the Edgewater community. This weekly communication will be posted each Friday on the City of Edgewater web site and also be sent through the Town Cryer and Nextdoor. As this tool develops please feel free to provide feedback on additions or changes to the material that is being posted. Also, please bear with us as we get this thing up and going, there may be a few hiccups with weekly posting.

Public Works / Streets / Utilities Sewer Video and Clean Contract: The City of Edgewater has contracted with a vendor to provide yearly maintenance for the sanitary sewer system. Through this maintenance the vendor (Pro Pipe) videos and cleans the entire sanitary sewer system. The video is analyzed by both the vendor and City Engineers office and problem areas are highlighted. Although the requirement for this service is every three years (per utility insurance requirements), the City is being proactive to make sure issues with the system can be identified before they become a problem. This maintenance also helps provide long term planning for repairs and upgrades to the system. Video and cleaning is provided to main lines only and will not affect residential service lines or taps. The vendor will be working between manholes, primarily in alley ways but within a few streets. The work should not provide for any full closures and the crew will work with residents needing access to areas that are temporarily blocked by this maintenance. Please call 720-763-3012 for any additional questions or concerns with the project.

Eaton / Depew Alley Storm Drain Project: The City of Edgewater is working to execute a contract with a vendor to install a new storm drain system in the 2000 block alley between Eaton St. and Depew St. This block is very flat and stagnant water has become a major issue. The new system will pipe the stagnant water down to 20th Ave. Following the sewer installation the City of Edgewater will mill and overlay the alley that has been deteriorated by this water over time. We expect to have this work completed by the end of September. Residents in the area will receive more up to date notices as project starts. Please call 720-763-3012 for more information or any concerns with this project.

Civic Center

Water / Sewer Utility: The City of Edgewater is working through various utilities to attain permits for water and sewer line installation to the property. We anticipate having these utilities installed this fall prior to concrete work.

Design Drawings: The final design drawings were submitted to the City for comment late last week. This plan set provides all of the detail for the building and is used to price out the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). City staff and Owner’s Representative anticipate providing comments back to the architect next week. The drawings reflect the latest designs presented to City Council with more detail.

Programming Open House: The Parks and Recreation Department has established a few dates for Civic Center programming open houses. The first of these meetings was originally scheduled for Thursday, August 24th at 6pm but has been moved to Wednesday, September 13th at 6pm. Staff will still present and take program comments at the Edgewater Community Picnic (8/26/17) as planned. The intention of these public meetings is to develop program plans for the new facility. These plans will assist with the equipment and staffing needs of the building.
