Williamsburg Street, Light & Energy Committee Meeting Minutes

Mayor Sandersfeld called the Oak Street and Bridge project Prebid meeting to order at 3:00 p.m. Noted committee members Marshall, council member; Grier, council member; Brian Portwood, Public Works Director, were present. Nicole Osweiler, city clerk, was also in attendance. There were representatives from fourteen different engineer and design firms in attendance.

Council member Marshall and Mayor Sandersfeld went over the fast time frame the project needs to take place in. The history of the Oak Street, Old Man’s Creek Bridge on State and the purpose of the pond were discussed by all. Chatham and Elm Street were reviewed as part of the design phase but will be pending reconstruction due to the budget for the project. It was stressed to give options for rehabilitating and widening the bridge. Other utility companies in the area will be placing some of their services underground at that time, too. A sidewalk will need to installed along Oak Street to help keep the foot traffic off of the road. All firms were asked to give options for the project that would utilize the city’s dollar to it’s fullest.

The RFP was gone through with special attention given to citizen interaction through out the project. Making the phases of the project able to add or subtract work is also factor that needs to be considered.

Many firms asked questions regarding budget, traffic control for the area, right away use or land acquisition, how the road and pond work together, beautification factors for the park area and ideal timeframes when would like to be completed.

There were no firms wanting a walk through with the city staff. Further questions and comments can be sent to the clerk and will be forwarded to the proper parties for response.

Motion was made by Marshall, seconded by Grier to adjourn the meeting at 4:00 p.m. Motion passed with a unanimous vote.
