City Council Supplementals
As you are aware, the City Council meeting packet is published in the afternoon on the Thursday the week before the City Council meeting.  There are three agenda items where materials were either received after the publication or additional time was required to compile necessary information.  Attached, please find additional information for the following agenda items:

East Hillcrest Trail Connector
The contractor is finishing the installation of the last culvert Friday and is looking to complete the grading for the trail early next week.  They are looking to pave the trail during the middle of next week and then finish the grading and seeding the week of September 23rd.

June 2018 Storm Recap
One of the projects that the City undertook after the June 2018 windstorm was to pick up tree debris. This debris along with debris brought to the City Brush Facility by residents was chipped and hauled away under a FEMA project at the beginning of this year. In July, the City received the FEMA reimbursement, which was $87,780 or 75 percent of the cost. This week, the City received the State portion, which was $11,704 or 10 percent of the cost. The City is responsible for the remaining 15 percent.

Training
As you may recall, transitioning employees from a paper timesheet to an online system was a project included in this year’s budget.  Not only does this project improve the efficiency for our team, it also helps to reduce risk associated with this aspect of our organization’s operations.  This transition was completed earlier this week when the final department received training on the system.  Thank you to Jackie Raffety and Melissa McCoy for their work on this project.

Street Light Conversion
Mike Metcalf, Electric Superintendent, recently shared some positive news on the LED street lights conversion project.  Mike indicated in July 2018, the street likes along North Jefferson used 11,948 kw.  In July of 2019, following the light fixture conversion in the same area, the usage was much lower at 5,568 kw. This equates to a savings of $478.50 just for the North Jefferson lights in one month. Mike estimates an annual savings of $9,000 just for the North Jefferson street lights. 

Recycling Presentation
Margaret Vernon, representative of the community’s sustainability committee, shared that Ammon Taylor, Waste Management, will be providing a presentation on recycling on Sunday, September 15th at 12:15 p.m. at Trinity United Presbyterian Church, 200 South Howard Street.
