City Engineer’s Report: Barry Glienke of Bolton & Menk, Inc. went over the 2017 Improve-ments Projects. If the Utility Improvement Project (area bounded by Third Street, Polk Avenue, International Drive) and the Klondike Sewer Project (Gravity System) were done together it would save costs and require only one bonding fee. He recommends moving forward with the project so it will be ready when and if the bonding bill passes when the legislature convenes in January. Much discussion ensued about the costs, funding, and assessments for these projects and what they entail for the City.
Kenfield moved, seconded by Bertilrud, to approve moving forward with the Airport Runway Edge Lighting Replacement Project–Work Order No. 2 and enter into a contract with Bolton & Menk, Inc. MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY
