IF YOU CAN UN-SHARE YOUR SCREEN FOR ME THERE.

YES, SIR.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, ALISON.

ALL RIGHT. WE WILL GO AHEAD AND GET STARTED WITH OUR FIRST PRESENTATION TONIGHT.

ITEM 1B FIREWHEEL GOLF PARK FUNDING REQUEST.

I SEE WE HAVE MR. SLAY, MR. KENNEDY WITH EWS THIS EVENING.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR, MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL, KEVIN SLAY HERE.

AND I'M GOING TO KIND OF GO OVER SOME OF THE ITEMS WE HAVE ON OUR LIST FIREWHEEL GOLF PARK, WE HAVE TRADITIONALLY REQUESTED APPROXIMATELY ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS TO BE PLACED IN THE CIP, TO BE SPENT ON GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND COURSE IMPROVEMENTS. AND THIS YEAR WE'VE IDENTIFIED ABOUT FOUR AREAS WITHIN THE COMPLEX THAT WE FEEL NEED ATTENTION.

THE FIRST ITEM IS CART PATHS AND BRIDGE REPAIRS.

WE'VE EARMARKED, APPLICANT PROPOSED ABOUT THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS TO MAKE REPAIRS ON ALL OF THE CART PARTS ON OUR LAKES COURSE.

OUR LAKES COURSE IS IS PRIMARILY IN A FLOODPLAIN AND WE EXPERIENCE A LOT OF FAILURES WITH OUR CART PATHS OUT THERE.

AND IT'S TIME TO TRY TO ADDRESS THOSE.

PART OF THESE FUNDS WILL BE USED TO DO SOME IMPROVEMENTS AND MAINTENANCE ON OUR BRIDGE STRUCTURES THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE COMPLEX.

WE'VE IDENTIFIED SOME AREAS THAT WE NEED TO MAKE REPAIRS ON AS IT RELATES TO SOME OF THOSE CART BRIDGES.

THE NEXT ITEM IS RELATED TO POND AND EROSION RELATED ISSUES.

WE'VE GOT A SPOT OVER BETWEEN HOLD THREE AND FOUR OF OUR CHAMPIONS COURSE WHERE WE'RE EXPERIENCING A LOT OF CREEP AND A LOT OF EROSION, GETTING EXTREMELY CLOSE TO ONE OF OUR CART PATHS.

AND IT'S AN AREA THAT WE WANT TO ATTEND TO IN THE UPCOMING HOPEFULLY BEFORE SUMMERTIME IF

[00:05:05]

POSSIBLE. WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF PUMPS ON THE LISTS.

THESE ARE RATHER LARGE PUMPS.

WE HAVE THREE PUMPS OUT THERE THAT POOL WATER OUT OF ROWLETT CREEK.

I BELIEVE ONE OF THESE PUMPS FAILED AT THE END OF 2009 TO THE OTHER PUMP FAILED AND COULD NOT BE REPAIRED SIX OR EIGHT MONTHS AGO.

AND SO WE'VE IDENTIFIED SOME WE'VE IDENTIFIED THAT AS ONE OF THE PROJECTS WE WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND TO AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

THE FOURTH ITEM ON OUR LIST HERE IS TO WE HAVE BENT GRASS GREENS AT OUR BRIDGES COURSE.

WE HAVE THREE SEPARATE NINE HOLE COURSES OVER THERE.

WE'RE EXPERIENCING A LOT OF BERMUDA GRASS, WHAT WE CALL CREEP INTO ON OUR TRADITIONS MINE. AND WE'D LIKE TO ADDRESS THAT BY REPLACING THE GREENS OVER THERE--NOT REPLACING THE GREENS, BUT REPLACING THE PUTTING SURFACE OF THE GRASS ON THOSE GREENS.

WE'RE PROPOSING TO REPLACE THE BENTGRASS OVER ON OUR TRADITIONS WITH A PRODUCT CALLED TIFEAGLE BERMUDA. IT'S THE SAME BERMUDA GREENS THEY'RE INSTALLING OVER IN FRISCO WITH THE NEW PGA COURSES.

THIS WOULD BE A JOINT PROJECT BETWEEN OUR STAFF AND YOU KNOW, OUR THINKING IS THAT WE COULD PROBABLY BEGIN A PROJECT LIKE THAT IN MID-APRIL AND HAVE THOSE GREENS COMPLETELY UP AND RUNNING BEFORE LABOR DAY.

ON THE NEXT SLIDE, WE'VE GOT BASICALLY THIS IS GENERAL COURSE MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT.

WE TYPICALLY CYCLE THROUGH THIS EQUIPMENT ABOUT EVERY TEN OR TWELVE YEARS.

WE'RE PROPOSING TO REPLACE TWO FAIRWAY MOWERS.

WE HAVE A TOTAL OF SIX FAIRWAY MOWERS OUT THERE.

WE'VE GOT TWO DESIGNATED FOR EACH COURSE AND HAVING THREE COURSES.

WE'VE GOT SIX OF THEM OUT THERE RIGHT NOW.

THOSE FAIRWAY MOWERS HAVE BEEN IN USE FOR ABOUT 11 YEARS AND WE'RE PROPOSING TO REPLACE TWO OF THEM THIS YEAR AND HOPEFULLY COME TO YOU GUYS NEXT YEAR AND TALK ABOUT MAYBE REPLACING THE OTHER FOUR.

OUR PLAN IS TO TRADE IN THESE UNITS AND PURCHASE TWO UNITS ARE COMING OFF LEASES.

THE NEXT ITEM IS ROUGH MOWERS.

WE HAVE FIVE ROUGH MOWERS TO DO THE ENTIRE COMPLEX.

OUR PLAN IS TO REPLACE THREE OF THOSE THIS YEAR.

WE CAN REPLACE TWO OF THOSE WITH STANDARD MOWERS THAT ARE A COUPLE OF YEARS OLD COMING OFF LEASES. AND WE'D LIKE TO REPLACE ONE WITH WHAT'S CALLED A TRIMAX UNIT OR A TRIMAX ROUGH MOWER. IT'S KIND OF A TRACTOR AND A MOWER UNIT BEHIND IT.

IT'S SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT THE PARK DEPARTMENT IS USING, AND IT'S BECOMING MORE OF AN INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR GOLF COURSES AND MOWING ROUGHS ON A GOLF COURSE.

THOSE TRIMAX UNITS ARE A LOT MORE DURABLE.

WE'RE PROBABLY GOING TO GET 15 OR 20 YEARS OUT OF THOSE UNITS.

AND IT'S JUST SOMETHING THAT WE'D LIKE TO TRY, GIVEN HOW MUCH ROUGH AND HOW MUCH SPACE WE HAVE OUT THERE AT THE GOLF COURSE.

NEXT ITEM ON THE LIST, WE'VE GOT A TWO HUNDRED GALLON SPRAYER THAT WE'D LIKE TO REPLACE THE SPRAYER THAT THE GUYS SAID IT'S BEEN IN USE FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS NOW AND BASICALLY DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE.

IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY TRADE-IN VALUE.

BUT WE WOULD CERTAINLY LIKE TO GET EWS A NEW SPRAYER.

GOT A COUPLE OF SANDPROS ON THE LIST, A TURF BLOWER AND A GREENS ROLLER.

THESE UNITS ARE ALL 10 TO 15 YEARS OLD.

THEY BASICALLY HAVE NO TRADE VALUE.

AND WE'RE PROPOSING TO SECURE NEW UNITS.

WE ONLY HAVE THE TWO SANDPROS TO MAINTAIN THE SIXTY THREE HOLES OUT THERE.

AND THEY'RE ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO PROPERLY MAINTAIN OUR SAND TRAPS.

WE DO HAVE A COUPLE OF OTHER BLOWERS AND ANOTHER GREEN MOWER OUT THERE.

AND QUITE HONESTLY, WE'RE HOPING TO REPLACE THOSE UNITS NEXT YEAR AS WELL.

AND SO THAT KIND OF WRAPS IT UP FOR FIREWHEEL.

[00:10:02]

AGAIN, WE'LL PROBABLY BE TALKING ABOUT THE REST OF OUR MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT NEXT YEAR AND PROBABLY START TALKING TO YOU ABOUT HOW WE GO FORWARD WITH THE REST OF OUR FLEET OF GOLF CARTS OUT THERE. SO TO KIND OF SUMMARIZE, WE'RE REQUESTING ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR IMPROVEMENTS, CART PATHS AND BRIDGES AND GREENS AND VARIOUS OTHER THINGS. AND THEN WE'VE GOT ABOUT THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS IN EQUIPMENT THAT WE'RE HOPING TO SECURE.

SO WITH THAT, I'LL ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS.

YOU CAN UN-SHARE THE SCREEN.

LET'S SEE, COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

GOOD EVENING, MR. SLAY. HOW ARE YOU? GOOD EVENING. GOOD, GOOD.

JUST ONE QUESTION FOR YOU.

OF THE EQUIPMENT, DOES THE PURCHASE PRICE INCLUDE ANY KIND OF MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS OR WARRANTIES? CAN YOU JUST GENERALLY SPEAK TO THAT? TYPICALLY, MOST OF THAT EQUIPMENT WILL COME WITH A TWO OR THREE YEAR WARRANTY ON MOST OF THAT EQUIPMENT. OK, THAT'S INCLUDED IN THE PROJECTED PRICE.

AND IT'S NOT AN ADDITIONAL PLUS COST, RIGHT? THAT'S CORRECT. OK, THANKS, SIR.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. DEPUTY MAYOR PRO-TEM MORRIS.

I CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE THE BUTTONS AFTER ALL THIS TIME.

SO THIS IS A QUESTION IN GENERAL WITH FIREWHEEL, BUT PROBABLY EXPANDING IT OUT TO THE CITY MANAGER. WE LEASE A LOT OF THIS EQUIPMENT, CORRECT, KEVIN, IS THAT WHAT I HEARD? THE EQUIPMENT THAT WE TALKED ABOUT TONIGHT, WE'RE NOT LEASING.

WE DON'T LEASE OUR MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT.

OK, BUT WE TRADE IT IN.

SO WHEN WE'RE GETTING NEW ONES, WE'RE TRADING THESE IN FOR-- YES, FOR NEW ONES. ALL RIGHT.

AND REALLY, I HAVE PONDERED THIS BEFORE, BUT NOT ASKED.

IT'S KIND OF A STUPID QUESTION.

BUT WITH ALL OF THE THINGS WE'RE GOING TO BE SEEING TONIGHT, WHICH IS HEAVY EQUIPMENT WITH EWS AND OTHER THINGS, WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE OLD EQUIPMENT THAT WE REPLACE? DO WE SELL IT, DO WE? WHAT DO WE DO WITH IT? WELL, A NUMBER OF THESE ITEMS LIKE OUR SPRAYER OUT THERE.

I MEAN, SOME OF THIS EQUIPMENT ESSENTIALLY HAS NO VALUE.

I DON'T KNOW.

I THINK IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO SELL--THE EQUIPMENT THAT HAS VALUE, LIKE THE MOWERS AND WHATNOT, WE WILL RECEIVE SOME FORM OF CREDIT IS AS WE TRADE IT IN.

AND A LOT OF PRIVATE CLUBS AND TOP TIER GOLF COURSES DO LEASE THIS TYPE OF EQUIPMENT.

AND THEY ROTATE IT THROUGH EVERY TWO OR THREE YEARS.

AND THAT'LL BE THE EQUIPMENT THAT WE'RE BUYING.

IT WILL HAVE LOW USE HOURS ON IT.

IT WILL BE WELL MAINTAINED.

IT WILL STILL COME WITH A WARRANTY.

AND WE HAVE A MECHANIC AND WE HAVE A TENDENCY TO TAKE CARE OF THIS EQUIPMENT AND USE IT FOR 10 TO 12, SOMETIMES 15 YEARS.

AND SO THAT'S KIND OF WHERE WE'RE IN MOST OF THIS.

YOU KNOW, THE GOLF CARTS MAY BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT STORY, AND THERE'S ALWAYS PROBLEMS WITH GOLF CARTS. I KNOW WE WOULD PURCHASE THIS EQUIPMENT AND THEN JUST DRIVE IT INTO THE DUST AND JUST WORK IT HARD FOR 10 OR 15 YEARS.

OK, MR. BRADFORD, CAN YOU JUST ANSWER ME IN GENERAL.

WITH OUR HEAVY EQUIPMENT, WITH OUR TRUCKS, WITH ALL THAT THE EWS EQUIPMENT THAT WE WEAR OUT PRETTY MUCH, DO WE SCRAP IT? DO WE TRY TO SELL IT? IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE THAT ONCE IT ONCE WE HAVE I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY WITH STREETS, SINCE STEVE OLIVER USES THINGS FOR 50 YEARS, I'M NOT THINKING THAT HAS ANY RESALE VALUE.

BUT IN GENERAL, WHAT DO WE DO WITH A LOT OF THIS USED UP EQUIPMENT? IT GOES INTO OUR ANNUAL AUCTION.

AND SO ONCE, SOMETIMES TWICE A YEAR WE WILL SELL OLD USE POLICE CARS, WE'LL SELL OTHER EQUIPMENT THAT IS PAST ITS USEFUL LIFE.

AND GENERALLY WE'LL GET ABOUT HALF A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN AUCTION REVENUE.

[00:15:07]

WELL, I DIDN'T KNOW THAT, SO I WANTED TO ASK AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS ABOUT THE THRIFTINESS.

WE ARE, I THINK, A VERY PRUDENT CITY, BUT THAT'S NOT AN ISSUE I HAD HEARD ADDRESSED.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, KEVIN.

AND THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT. ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ON FIREWHEEL? I SEE NONE. ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, KEVIN. THANK YOU.

THEN DON.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT, THEN WE WILL MOVE ON TO 1C: LANDFILL FUNDING REQUEST.

THERE'S CHRIS. HI, THERE. HOW ARE YOU THIS EVENING? I'M DOING QUITE WELL, THANK YOU.

HOW ARE YOU? GOOD, DOING GOOD.

WELL, THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR AND COUNCIL MEMBERS.

MR. BRADFORD, GOOD EVENING TO EVERYONE.

I'LL BEGIN THIS LANDFILL PRESENTATION NOW.

WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE FIRST PROPOSAL IS REPLACEMENT OF LANDFILL EQUIPMENT.

AND WE HAVE THREE ITEMS ON OUR REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE THIS YEAR IS A VERY POINTED QUESTION AND TIMELY QUESTION THAT DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS ASKED.

THIS YEAR IN THE REPLACEMENT OF ONE OF OUR D8 BULLDOZERS, A VERY LARGE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT WITH A PRICE TAG OF AROUND ONE POINT THREE MILLION DOLLARS.

INSTEAD OF REPLACING IT THIS YEAR, WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING TO DO IS TO HAVE IT REBUILT.

THAT COMES AT A COST THAT'S ABOUT 50 PERCENT OF THE NEW MACHINE.

THIS IS A BIT OF A PILOT PROGRAM AND SORT OF TESTING THE WATERS.

WE'VE DONE THIS ONCE BEFORE.

YOU MIGHT RECALL IT LATE LAST YEAR, WE PROPOSED AND RECEIVED FUNDING TO REBUILD ANOTHER MACHINE JUST LIKE THIS ONE.

AND WHAT ARE THINKING IS, IS THAT IF THE REBUILD EQUIPMENT PERFORMS AS WELL AS WE HOPE IT WILL AND AS GOOD AS NEW EQUIPMENT, THEN WE WOULD CONTINUE TO PROPOSE REBUILDING EQUIPMENT WHEN PRUDENT IN THE FUTURE.

AND THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL OF SAVING A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF DOLLARS OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. SO WE'LL BE DOING THAT WITH THIS MACHINE AND PUTTING THAT INTO USE.

IT TAKES ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE MONTHS FOR THE EQUIPMENT TO GET RETURNED TO EWS.

BUT AS I SAID, WE'RE HOPING THAT THIS WILL PROVIDE SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS OVER THE LONG TERM. SO THAT'S THE PROPOSAL FOR THE BULLDOZER THIS YEAR.

WE ALSO HAVE ON OUR REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE EXCAVATOR REPLACEMENT.

THESE ARE ALL EQUIPMENT THAT HAVE REACHED THE END OF THEIR USEFUL LIFE.

THE EXCAVATOR WE ARE PROPOSING TO PURCHASE A NEW ONE, THE OLD EXCAVATOR WILL BE TRADED IN BACK TO CATERPILLAR.

SO THERE'S A TRADE IN VALUE.

I'M GOING TO VENTURE A GUESS, ALTHOUGH TERRY A.

WOULD BE BETTER TO GIVE EWS REAL NUMBERS.

IT'S ABOUT 25 TO 30 PERCENT OF THE COST OF THE NEW MACHINE.

AND THAT OF COURSE, DEPENDS ON HOW MANY HOURS ARE ON THE OLD MACHINE.

IT GETS AN EVALUATION MUCH LIKE A USED CAR WOULD.

BUT THERE IS SOME VALUE THAT COMES OFF OF THESE VERY LARGE PIECES OF EQUIPMENT WHEN WE TRADE THEM IN. AND THE THIRD ITEM ON OUR REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE THIS YEAR IS A FUEL TRUCK.

YOU TALK ABOUT USING EQUIPMENT FOR 50 YEARS OR MORE.

I CAN VOUCH FOR THE FACT THAT THE FUEL TRUCK AT THE LANDFILL IS WELL PAST ITS USEFUL LIFE. WE SPENT A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TIME AND MONEY REPAIRING IT, AND SO WE ARE LOOKING TO BRING SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE MODERN.

THE FUEL TRUCK IS USED TO FERRY FUEL FROM OUR FUEL FARM, WHICH IS HERE AT THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING UP TO THE WORK SITE, WHICH CAN BE AT TIMES UP TO HALF A MILE AWAY. AND SO THAT'S WHAT THE EQUIPMENT'S USED FOR.

NEXT SLIDE. THE NEXT PROPOSAL IS LANDFILL OPERATIONS.

DESIGN AND IMPROVEMENTS.

SHOULD BE A MULTI-YEAR PROJECT WHERE WE ARE LOOKING AT DOING DESIGN WORK THIS YEAR AND COMING BACK TO PROPOSE THE FUNDING FOR CONSTRUCTION NEXT YEAR.

AND THEY'RE LOOKING AT TWO PRIMARY AREAS ON THE LANDFILL SITE.

ONE IS THE CITIZEN'S CONVENIENCE CENTER, WHICH, AS YOU PROBABLY ARE AWARE, IS THE AREA WE PROVIDE FOR THE CITIZENS, WHERE PEOPLE IN TENNIS SHOES AND THE HONDA ACCORDS DON'T HAVE TO GO TO THE ACTUAL LANDFILL WORKING FACE, WHICH IS A COMMERCIAL AND DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT. AND THE IMPROVEMENTS WE'D LIKE TO MAKE THERE ARE AIMED AT MAKING IT EVEN SAFER. AND SO WE'RE LOOKING AT THINGS LIKE PAVEMENT AND OTHER SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS WHERE THE CITIZENS ARE LEAVING THEIR TRASH THE SECOND AREA IN THIS PROPOSAL IS THE LANDFILL ADMINISTRATION BUILDING.

[00:20:03]

IT'S ABOUT A 20 YEAR OLD FACILITY.

AND THESE IMPROVEMENTS ARE MAINLY AIMED AT THE AT THE RESTROOM AND LOCKER ROOM FACILITIES. THE SANITARY AND SAFETY TYPE IMPROVEMENTS.

THE RESTROOMS, THERE AREN'T VERY MANY OF THEM FOR THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WE HAVE HERE, LET'S PUT IT THAT WAY. EVERYONE'S TRYING TO USE THE SAME RESTAURANT ONCE.

AND THIS WOULD IMPROVE THAT SITUATION.

AS WELL AS PROVIDE SOME LOCKER ROOM UPGRADES AND THE ADDITION OF A SHOWER FACILITY, NOT ONLY FOR USE IN EMERGENCY SITUATION, BUT ALSO THERE ARE TIMES WHEN A DAY'S WORK AT THE LANDFILL CAN BE MESSY AND THE NICE CREATURE COMFORT FOR EMPLOYEES TO BE ABLE TO SHOWER WHEN NEEDED BEFORE THEY HOP IN THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLES TO GO HOME.

THAT'S WHAT THOSE PROPOSALS ARE AIMED AT DOING.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS PROPOSING NEW LANDFILL EQUIPMENT.

THIS IS PROPOSING AN ADDITIONAL BULLDOZER TO THE FLEET.

WE CURRENTLY OPERATE THREE BULLDOZERS OF THIS CLASS.

TWO ARE FRONT LINE MACHINES, AND ONE IS A BACKUP IN CASE ONE OF THEM GOES DOWN.

THERE'RE A COMBINATION REASONS WHY WE'RE PROPOSING TO ADD ONE TO THAT FLEET.

ONE IS THAT THERE IS A RISING TREND OF VOLUMES OF WASTE AT THE LANDFILL OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, AND WE'VE CONDUCTED RECENTLY A BUSINESS PLAN RESEARCH PROJECT, AS WELL AS A WASTE SHED STUDY, BOTH WHICH INDICATE THAT ADDING EQUIPMENT AT THIS TIME WOULD BE PRUDENT.

SO WE WILL USE THAT EQUIPMENT TO HELP SUPPORT THE ADDITIONAL MATERIALS.

BUT ANOTHER REASON IS BECAUSE WE'VE ALSO RECENTLY BEGUN IMPORTING SOIL TO THE SITE.

THE LANDFILL HAS A LIFESPAN EXPECTED IN THE 30 YEAR RANGE AT THIS TIME, AND WE KNOW THAT OVER THAT PERIOD OF TIME THERE'S A SOIL DEFICIENCY.

IN OTHER WORDS, WE'LL NEED ABOUT THREE MILLION MORE CUBIC YARDS THAN WE HAVE.

AND SO IN ORDER TO PREVENT NEEDING TO GO AND PURCHASE THAT SOIL IN THE FUTURE, WE'VE BEGUN PERMITTING LOCAL CONTRACTORS TO BRING SOIL WHEN THEY'RE IN EXCESS ON OTHER JOB SITES AND DEPOSITED HERE IN OUR STOCKPILE.

WELL, THIS HAS CREATED A NEED TO MANAGE THAT SOIL AS IT COMES IN.

AND SO THIS ADDITIONAL BULLDOZER WOULD BE USED TO HELP MANAGE THOSE SOILS OVER THE COMING YEARS. AND THEN FINALLY, TO TIE BACK TO WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHEN WE SEND ONE OF THE BULLDOZERS OFF FOR REBUILD, TAKES ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE MONTHS TO GET THEM BACK. SO THIS ADDITIONAL PIECE OF EQUIPMENT COULD ALSO BE USED SHOULD SOMETHING GO WRONG AS A AS A BACKUP PIECE OF EQUIPMENT TO THE CORE OPERATIONS AT THE TRASH WE'RE SEEING SOME SYNERGY ACROSS OUR OPERATIONS THROUGH THE ADDITION OF THIS EQUIPMENT.

AND THE NEXT SLIDE.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS PROPOSING TO DESIGN THE NEXT WASTE CELL.

AS YOU KNOW, THE LANDFILL IS IS A LARGE PIECE OF LAND PERMITTED TO RECEIVE TRASH.

AND WE'VE BROKEN IT UP INTO SMALLER CHUNKS THAT WE CALL CELLS WHERE WE BUILD A LINER THAT IS READY TO RECEIVE TRASH.

AND YOU'RE ALWAYS KIND OF READY TO BUILD THE NEXT ONE.

YOU CAN'T BUILD IT TOO SOON OR YOU END UP WITH MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS AND YOU CERTAINLY CAN'T BUILD IT TOO LATE, THEN YOU DON'T HAVE ANYWHERE TO PUT THE TRASH WHEN YOUR CURRENT CELL'S FULL. SO, FINISHING THE DESIGN OF OUR NEXT WASTE CELL IN TWENTY TWENTY ONE WILL KEEP EWS ON TRACK TO HAVE IT CONSTRUCTED AND COMPLETE AND READY WHEN THE CURRENT WASTE CELL NUMBER EIGHT IS FULL.

AND THAT WILL TAKE EWS TO THE LAST SLIDE.

THIS IS A LANDFILL LAND ACQUISITION AND PERMIT AMENDMENT.

THIS MONEY IS PROPOSED FOR USE IN AMENDING THE LANDFILLS PERMIT LIKES IT, AND THEN THE PERMIT TO EXPAND THE LANDFILL FOOTPRINT INTO AN ADJACENT PARCEL OF LAND.

IT'S ABOUT SEVENTY ONE ACRES THAT WAS RECENTLY ACQUIRED.

SO THIS IS A MULTI-YEAR PROJECT THAT WILL CERTAINLY LAST ALL OF TWENTY TWENTY ONE AND TWENTY TWO AND EXTEND PROBABLY INTO THE YEAR TWENTY TWENTY THREE IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE THAT LANDFILL PERMIT AMENDMENT.

IT'D BE A MAJOR AMENDMENT AND IT WOULD, WHEN COMPLETED, EFFECTIVELY DOUBLE THE LIFE OF THE LANDFILL FROM WHAT WE CURRENTLY ARE LOOKING AT ABOUT 30 YEARS OF LIFE TO 60 YEARS, MAYBE MORE, DEPENDING ON HOW ALL THAT'S MANAGED, BUT I'M SURE IT WILL LAST BEYOND MY CAREER.

AND BUT OBVIOUSLY THERE'S A TREMENDOUS VALUE TO COMPLETING THIS AND EXPANDING THE LIFESPAN, NOT ONLY TO THE CITIZENS OF GARLAND HAVING STABLE COSTS FOR COLLECTING TRASH,

[00:25:03]

BUT ALSO TO THE CITY'S EARNINGS AT THE LANDFILL BY BEING ABLE TO ACCEPT WASTE FROM THE REGION OVER THAT PERIOD.

AND THAT'S THE LAST PROJECT WE HAVE.

AND ON THE NEXT SLIDE, OF COURSE, IS THE SUMMARY.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'RE PROPOSING JUST A LITTLE OVER THREE POINT ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN PROJECTS.

A LOT OF THAT IS LANDFILL EQUIPMENT.

IT'S AN EQUIPMENT INTENSIVE BUSINESS.

AND THEY'RE ARE LARGE PIECES OF A VERY BIG PRICE TAGS.

BUT AS I EXPLAINED, WE'RE LOOKING AT WAYS TO TRY TO SAVE THE CITY DOLLARS OVER THE LONG TERM. AND WITH THAT, I'D BE HAPPY TO ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE.

VERY GOOD. ALL RIGHT, EXCUSE ME, DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OVER LANDFILL FUNDING REQUEST? I SEE NONE.

YOU KNOW, CHRIS, I THINK YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER 60 YEARS IN YOU.

I'D BE AROUND 60. I JUST DON'T KNOW IF I'LL BE HERE.

I HOPE TO BE HERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME, NEVERTHELESS, THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA, YOU HAVE A QUESTION? YES, SIR. GO AHEAD.

CHRIS, DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY WE MAKE ON THE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, LEASING OR WHATEVER TO THE OTHER CITIES COMING IN.

WELL, I WOULD HAVE TO GO LOOK AT SOME NUMBERS TO GIVE YOU A VERY SPECIFIC ANSWER, BUT IT'S PROBABLY ON THE ORDER OF 50 PERCENT OF OUR TOTAL REVENUE FROM REGIONAL TRUST CUSTOMERS. SO, IN OTHER WORDS, WHATEVER WE DO, WHAT PERCENTAGE YOU THINK OF WHAT WE GIVE YOU WILL THAT MAKE UP? OF WHAT THE-- BALL PARK FIGURE. I DON'T WANT IT TO BE EXACT.

ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE THE EWS DELIVERIES? WHAT IS THE PERCENTAGE OF THAT WASTE AND THE TOTAL? YEAH. IT'S PROBABLY AROUND 30 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF WASTE THAT'S BROUGHT FROM THE EWS DEPARTMENT. SO A LOT OF THIS MONEY THAT WE ALLOCATE WOULD PAY OFF A LITTLE BIT OF IT, RIGHT? YES, IT WOULD.

OK, THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER HEDRICK. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. I JUST HAVE ONE QUICK QUESTION FOR CHRIS.

I WAS WONDERING IF THE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CCC WILL ALLOW YOU TO RESUME PROVIDING MULCH TO CITIZENS. ACTUALLY, I'M HAPPY TO REPORT WE'VE ALREADY BEGUN.

WE ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE MULCH TO THE CITIZENS NOW, NOT RELATED TO THE CCC.

WE HAVE HAD A CONTAINER AT THE TRANSFER STATION FOR, I WANT TO SAY, THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS, AND WE WILL FROM NOW FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE, BE ABLE TO CONTINUE THAT PROGRAM. WONDERFUL.

THAT'S GOOD TO HEAR. I'M JUST AS YOU WERE SPEAKING, I WAS LOOK ON YOUR WEBSITE, THERE'S A BIG X THROUGH THE BROCHURE ABOUT PROVIDING MULCH, SO.

I'M GOING TO MAKE A NOTE OF THAT AND HAVE THAT UPDATED IMMEDIATELY WONDERFUL, SPRING IS COMING. I KNOW PEOPLE WILL NEED THEIR FLOWERS, GARDENS READY.

I APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. ALL RIGHT, I THINK THAT CLOSES US OUT ON LANDFILL FUNDING AND WE WILL MOVE ON TO EWS FUNDING REQUEST.

URIEL. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

MR. MAYOR, COUNCIL.

MR. BRADFORD, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT TO YOU TONIGHT.

MY NAME IS URIEL VILLALPANDO FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T KNOW ME.

AND I'LL BE PROVIDING A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE TWENTY TWENTY ONE CIP REQUEST FOR EWS DELIVERY. AND IF WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

OUR FIRST REQUEST IS WE'RE SEEKING FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF SIX, TWO THOUSAND AND SIXTEEN AUTOMATED SIDE LOADERS FOR THE RESIDENTIAL TRASH DIVISION.

THESE ARE THE VEHICLES THAT GO OUT THERE ON A WEEKLY BASIS AND COLLECT YOUR TRASH FROM THE GREEN CONTAINERS.

CURRENTLY, WE SERVICE ABOUT SIXTY THREE THOUSAND CUSTOMERS PER WEEK.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I WANT TO MENTION TO YOU ALL IS THESE VEHICLES ARE ON A FIVE

[00:30:05]

YEAR REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE, BUT.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT WITH MY MANAGEMENT TEAM AND WORKING WITH THE FLEET DEPARTMENT IS WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING AT WAYS TO INCREASE THE REPLACEMENT CYCLE OF THESE VEHICLES AND IN THE LONG RUN, BE ABLE TO SAVE MONEY TO THE CITY AND THE CITIZENS.

AND SO WE'VE MADE A LOT OF CHANGES IN THE WAY WE OPERATE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DID SPECIFICALLY IN RESIDENTIAL TRASH COLLECTIONS IS THAT WE ADDED A 17TH COLLECTION ROUTE.

AND BASICALLY THE RESULT OF THAT WAS THAT THE SIZE OF THE ROUTES DECREASED BY ABOUT 70 TO 80 CONTAINERS PER DAY.

SO THAT GAVE THE DRIVERS MORE TIME TO WORK SPECIFICALLY ON PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE, ONCE AGAIN WITH THE GOAL OF EXTENDING THE LIFE OF THESE VEHICLES.

BUT ALSO BY DOING THIS, WE WERE ABLE TO IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OVERALL OF RESIDENTIAL COLLECTIONS. AND BECAUSE OF THIS, WE WERE ABLE TO SAVE OR DECREASE OVERTIME BY FORTY EIGHT PERCENT FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. WE'RE ALSO SEEKING FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF ONE, TWO THOUSAND AND SIXTEEN SIDE LOADER, AND THIS ONE IS FOR THE RESIDENTIAL RECYCLE DIVISION.

THIS IS THE VEHICLE THAT PICKS UP YOUR BLUE CONTAINER EVERY OTHER WEEK.

CURRENTLY, WE SERVICE ABOUT FORTY TWO THOUSAND, CLOSE TO FORTY THREE THOUSAND CUSTOMERS EVERY OTHER WEEK OR PER MONTH.

AND ONCE AGAIN, KEEPING IN MIND THE SUCCESS THAT WE HAD, ADDING ADDITIONAL ROUTES TO RESIDENTIAL TRASH COLLECTIONS.

WE DID THE SAME THING WITH RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING.

WE ADDED A SEVENTH COLLECTION ROUTE IN DECEMBER OF TWENTY TWENTY, AND WE'VE SEEN A HUGE INCREASE IN EFFICIENCY IN THIS DIVISION.

KEEP IN MIND, WE HAD AN INCREASE OF TWO THOUSAND TONS FROM LAST FISCAL YEAR.

THAT'S HOW WE WERE IMPACTED BY COVID THAT WE HAD A LOT OF CITIZENS STAY AT HOME.

SO MORE TRASH WAS GENERATED, AND THIS DIVISION, SPECIFICALLY, WE INCREASED TONNAGE BY TWO THOUSAND TONS. HOWEVER, ONCE AGAIN, WITH ALL THE CHANGES THAT WE'VE BEEN MAKING OUT IN THE FIELD, WE WERE ABLE TO DECREASE OVERTIME BY TWENTY NINE PERCENT FROM LAST FISCAL YEAR. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND WE'RE ALSO SEEKING FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF TWO FRONT LOADERS, ONE IS A TWENTY FOURTEEN AND THE OTHER ONE IS A 2016.

BOTH OF THESE VEHICLES BELONG TO THE COMMERCIAL DIVISION.

YOU WILL NEVER SEE THESE VEHICLES IN THE RESIDENTIAL AREA.

THESE VEHICLES ARE SPECIFICALLY TO SERVICE BUSINESSES IN THE CITY OF GARLAND.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU SPECIFICALLY ABOUT THE TWENTY SIXTEEN FRONT LOADER.

THIS VEHICLE IS NOT SCHEDULED TO BE REPLACED UNTIL TWENTY TWENTY THREE.

HOWEVER, OVER THE LAST 18 MONTHS, WE'VE ADDED TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY SIX NEW COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS THAT WILL GENERATE APPROXIMATELY TWO HUNDRED NINETY THOUSAND DOLLARS PER YEAR IN ADDITIONAL REVENUE. SO I FELT THAT IT WAS NECESSARY FOR US TO MOVE THE REPLACEMENT OF THIS THIS 2016 VEHICLE FROM TWENTY TWENTY THREE TO TWENTY TWENTY ONE IN ORDER FOR US TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE SEEKING NEW BUSINESSES, NEW ACCOUNTS, BUT ALSO BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH THE WITH THE VOLUME.

ONCE AGAIN, EVERYTHING THAT WE DID IN RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING, RESIDENTIAL TRASH, WE APPLIED IT TO COMMERCIAL SERVICES AS WELL, JUST CHANGING THE WAY WE OPERATE.

WE ADDED GPS TO FIND THE BEST ROUTES THAT ARE MORE EFFICIENT.

AND BECAUSE OF ALL THOSE THINGS, WE WERE ABLE TO DECREASE OVER TIME BY THIRTY EIGHT PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. AND WE'RE SEEKING FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF ONE TWENTY SIXTEEN KNUCKLE BOOM. THIS VEHICLE BELONGS TO THE BRUSH AND BULKY DIVISION.

ONCE AGAIN, JUST FOLLOWING THE MODEL THAT HAS WORKED IN ALL THE OTHER DIVISIONS.

WE'RE DOING THE SAME THING WITH BRUSH.

WE'RE WORKING ON ADDING A SEVENTH COLLECTION RULE TO HAVE A SEVENTH BOOM, BASICALLY JUST DRIVE AROUND AND HELP OUT ALL THE OTHER DRIVERS.

IT'S BEEN ONCE AGAIN, COVID HAS REALLY HIT US THIS YEAR.

FOR THIS DIVISION SPECIFICALLY OUR TONNAGE INCREASED BY OVER EIGHT THOUSAND TONS.

EIGHT THOUSAND TONS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF THIRTY TWO ADDITIONAL WORKDAY'S.

SO, YOU KNOW, HAVING EMPLOYEES OUT DUE TO COVID, INJURIES AND VACANCIES AND ON TOP OF THAT, HAVING AN INCREASE IN TONNAGE, IT HASN'T BEEN EASY, BUT I HAVE A VERY GOOD TEAM THAT IS ALWAYS READY TO STEP UP TO THE CHALLENGE.

[00:35:02]

AND THEY MADE IT HAPPEN.

AND ONCE AGAIN, WITH ALL THE CHANGES THAT WE IMPLEMENTED IN THE FIELD, WE WERE ABLE TO DECREASE OVERTIME IN THE BRUSH AND BULKY DIVISION BY TWENTY ONE PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. AND WE'RE ALSO SEEKING FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF ONE ROLL-OFF TRUCK. ROLL-OFF, TYPICALLY YOU SEE THIS TYPE OF CONTAINERS AT CONSTRUCTION SITES.

BUT ALSO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE STARTED DOING IS, WE STARTED SERVICING OUR CITIZENS THROUGHOUT THE CITY. SO WE FOUND THAT AS AN ADDITIONAL SOURCE OF REVENUE THAT WE WERE NOT UTILIZING IN THE PAST.

AND, YOU KNOW, EVEN THOUGH CONSTRUCTION KIND OF SLOWED DOWN A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE OF COVID, WE WERE ABLE TO SERVICE OVER THREE THOUSAND OPEN-TOP CONTAINERS LAST FISCAL YEAR.

SO THIS VEHICLE DIDN'T SLOW DOWN AT ALL AS FAR AS ACTIVITY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. AND THIS IS A BOBCAT SKID LOADER, WE'RE SEEKING FUNDING TO UPGRADE THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

THIS IS WHAT WE USE TO LOAD OLD THEY'RE RECYCLING COMMODITIES INTO THE COMPACTORS THAT GET PROCESSED AT THE PROCESSING FACILITY.

WE'RE NOT ASKING TO REPLACE THE EXACT SAME TYPE OF EQUIPMENT.

WE'RE ACTUALLY TRYING TO UPGRADE IT.

AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS, ONCE AGAIN, WE HAD AN INCREASE OF TWO THOUSAND TONS OF RECYCLING COMMODITIES.

SO WE'RE ANTICIPATING THAT THE BIGGER PIECE OF EQUIPMENT IS GOING TO ALLOW US TO IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY IN THE RECYCLING CENTER AND ALSO ALLOW US TO BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH THE VOLUME. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND THE LAST REQUEST THAT I HAVE FOR YOU IS WE ARE REQUESTING FUNDING TO ADD ONE NEW ADDITIONAL ROLL-OFF TRUCK, AND THIS IS IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN SERVICE REQUIREMENTS BECAUSE ONCE AGAIN, BECAUSE OF THE GROWTH IN THE COMMERCIAL DIVISION DURING FISCAL YEAR '19-20, WE HAD SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS IN OPERATIONS AND ALSO TERRY AT THE FLEET DEPARTMENT WAS ABLE TO NEGOTIATE A VERY GOOD PRICE ON THIS VEHICLE.

SO IF COUNCIL APPROVES, THE PURCHASE OF THIS VEHICLE WILL NOT HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE RATES. NOW, THE LAST THING THAT I WANT TO MENTION TO YOU ALL IS THIS IS ALSO THE VEHICLE THAT WE USE FOR THE HOMELESS CLEANUP CAMPS.

SO HAVING ONE ADDITIONAL VEHICLE WILL GIVE ME AND MY STAFF MORE FLEXIBILITY TO MAYBE DO CLEANUP'S MORE THAN ONCE A WEEK.

AND NOT ONLY THAT, WHENEVER THIS VEHICLE IS NOT BEING UTILIZED TO ASSIST THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WITH THE HOMELESS CAMP CLEANUPS, WE CAN USE IT TO PURSUE NEW ADDITIONAL ROLL-OFF ACCOUNTS AND BRING MORE MONEY TO THE CITY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. IN SUMMARY, EWS DELIVERY IS REQUESTING FOR THREE MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

VERY GOOD, URIEL. COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. HELLO, URIEL, HOW ARE YOU? I'M DOING PRETTY GOOD, MR. WILLIAMS. HOW ARE YOU? I'M DOING GOOD.

I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU, BUT YOU MENTIONED SEVERAL TIMES IN YOUR PRESENTATION THE WORD EFFICIENCY. AND I JUST WANT TO THROW OUT A KUDO TO YOU.

SINCE I'VE BEEN BACK ON THE COUNCIL, YOU AND YOUR TEAM HAVE BAILED ME OUT SEVERAL TIMES ALREADY.

ON MISSED COLLECTIONS.

I'VE GOT SOME FOLKS WHO LOVE TO PARK IN FRONT OF THEIR TRASH CONTAINERS AND THEN BLOW THE PHONE UP. AND I JUST APPRECIATE YOUR TEAM BEING PATIENT, COMING BACK AND TAKING CARE OF THOSE FOLKS. SO I JUST WANTED TO PASS THAT ALONG TO YOU AND LET YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE YOU AND YOUR PATIENCE AND COMING BACK AND YOUR TEAM CLEANING UP THERE.

SO I JUST WANT TO PASS THAT ALONG TO YOU.

HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE YOU HELPING ME OUT IN THE SHORT TERM I'VE BE BACK AND I APPRECIATE IT. OK.

THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I JUST WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU FOR A WELL DONE JOB.

AND EVER SINCE YOU TOOK OFFICE, I'VE BEEN WATCHING EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN DOING, AND I REALLY APPRECIATE WE'VE GOT YOUR BOARD ON OUR TEAM.

THANK YOU, SIR. ALL RIGHT.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ON EWS DELIVERY? IF NOT, I WILL END WITH MY COMPLIMENTS AS WELL.

[00:40:01]

I'VE BEEN WORKING FROM HOME FOR MONTHS UPON MONTHS NOW, AND I AM AMAZED EVERY TUESDAY THE FLEET OF THESE VEHICLES THAT COMES THROUGH MY NEIGHBORHOOD, IT'S AMAZING PROCESS TO WATCH. SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SIR. ALL RIGHT, THAT WILL MOVE US TO 1E: GPNL FUNDING REQUEST I THINK I SAW, DARRELL--THERE YOU ARE.

GOOD EVENING. GOOD EVENING, MAYOR.

MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. TONIGHT, I'M PLEASED TO PRESENT TO YOU GPNL TWENTY TWENTY ONE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT REQUEST FOR NEW PROJECTS.

I THINK COUNCIL MAY BE AWARE THAT SEVERAL YEARS AGO GPNL TOOK A CONCERTED EFFORT TO TRY TO INCREASE ITS FOOTPRINT ASSOCIATED WITH ITS TRANSMISSION BUSINESS.

AND THE REASON WHY WE DID THAT IS THAT AS COUNCIL MEMBER BE AWARE WITH TRANSMISSION INVESTMENT, YOU'RE ABLE TO GET FULL COST RECOVERY PLUS A RETURN ON THAT INVESTMENT AND THOSE COSTS AND THAT RETURN ARE RECOVERED THROUGH TRANSMISSION RATES THAT ALL THE RATE PAYERS WITHIN ERCOT A FUND.

AND SO GIVEN THAT TRANSMISSION INVESTMENT IN THE STATE WAS INCREASING AT A VERY HIGH RATE.

OUR INCREASED PARTICIPATION IN TRANSMISSION INVESTMENT WAS HELPING TO OFFSET SOME OF THESE COST INCREASES THAT WE WERE SEEING.

AND OUR FIRST FORAY INTO INCREASING THAT TRANSMISSION FOOTPRINT WAS WHAT WE CALL OUR THEY'RE TWO TRANSMISSION LINES THAT ARE OUT IN WEST TEXAS, WHICH WE INVESTED ABOUT 90 MILLION DOLLARS INTO THOSE TWO LINES.

AND WE'VE CONTINUED OTHER OPPORTUNITIES.

WE'VE IDENTIFIED TO INCREASE THAT FOOTPRINT OF THE TRANSMISSION.

MOST NOTABLY HERE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, WE ENERGIZED THE LIMESTONE TO GIBBONS CREEK TRANSMISSION LINE, WHICH WAS PART OF THE HOUSTON IMPORT PROJECT, AND THAT WAS TO THE TUNE OF ALMOST ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY MILLION DOLLAR INVESTMENT.

AND BOTH THOSE LARGE INVESTMENTS HAVE PAID OFF FOR US FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE FINANCIAL BENEFITS.

BUT WHAT WE'RE STARTING TO SEE AND WHAT YOU'LL SEE IN THE PRESENTATION TONIGHT IS WE'RE SEEING ANCILLARY BENEFITS ASSOCIATED WITH THOSE INVESTMENTS OUT IN WEST TEXAS AS WELL AS THE HOUSTON IMPORT, AND AS WELL AS YOU'LL SEE SOME OF THE OTHER ACTIVITIES WE'VE BEEN PURSUING TO, AGAIN, TO TRY TO INCREASE THAT TRANSMISSION PRESENCE.

AND LIKE WE'VE DONE IN PAST CIP PRESENTATIONS, WE BUDGET BASED UPON PROGRAMS, TRANSMISSION PROGRAMS, SUBSTATION PROGRAM, AND THE WAY THIS IS ARRANGED IS WE STARTED WITH THE PROGRAM THAT HAS THE GREATEST AMOUNT OF FUNDING REQUEST FOR TWENTY, TWENTY ONE AS FAR AS NEW PROJECTS, WE START WITH THAT FIRST AND THEN WORK OUR WAY DOWN TO THE SMALLEST. SO, CARMA, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND IF YOU COULD GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

OUR LARGEST NEW REQUEST IS IN OUR SUBSTATION PROGRAM AREA.

THE FIRST PROJECT YOU SEE HERE IS A MODIFICATION TO THE KING MOUNTAIN SWITCH STATION.

THIS IS ASSOCIATED WITH TRYING TO ACCOMMODATE A NEW SOLAR FARM THAT WOULD BE INTERCONNECTING INTO THE ERCOT SYSTEM.

THIS, AGAIN, WOULD BE SOMETHING ASSOCIATED WITH OUR TRANSMISSION LINES.

THAT'S WHERE THIS WOULD BE INTERCONNECTING INTO.

ANY TIME THERE'S AN INTERCONNECTION OF ANY TYPE OF RESOURCE INTO OUR SYSTEM, SUCH AS A SOLAR FARM OR A WIND FARM, THERE HAS TO BE AN INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT THAT WAS NEGOTIATED BETWEEN THE PARTIES, WHICH LAYS OUT THE OPERATIONS, THE EQUIPMENT, BUT IMPORTANTLY FOR US, ALSO THE FINANCIAL SECURITY.

SO, FOR EXAMPLE, IF WE WERE TO BEGIN BUILDING ON THIS PARTICULAR STATION AND THE SOLAR FARM FOR SOME REASON WERE TO FALL APART AND GO AWAY, THERE WOULD BE EITHER A LETTER OF CREDIT OR CASH THAT WE WOULD HAVE ON HAND TO DRAW FROM TO BE ABLE TO OFFSET WHATEVER COSTS THAT WE'VE INCURRED ALONG THE WAY.

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF NEGOTIATIONS OF THIS INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT ON THE MODIFICATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SWITCH STATION.

BUT SO THAT MEANS RIGHT NOW WE DO NOT HAVE AN ESTIMATED COMPLETION TIME, BUT WE'RE ESTIMATING THE COST OF THE MODIFICATIONS OF ABOUT SIX POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS.

THE NEXT PROJECT IS THE FARMERSVILLE EXCUSE ME SUBSTATION, WHICH FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE IS ESTIMATED AT FIVE POINT EIGHT MILLION, A TOTAL PROJECT COST OF TEN POINT FIVE MILLION, WHICH WOULD BE COMPLETED IN TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

YOU MAY ASK, WHY DO WE HAVE A SUBSTATION FOR FARMERSVILLE IN HERE? AGAIN, THIS IS PART OF OUR EFFORT ASSOCIATED WITH INCREASING OUR FOOTPRINT.

THIS WOULD BE SOMETHING SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DID FOR THE CITY OF GREENVILLE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WHERE GREENVILLE NEEDED A THIRD TRANSMISSION FEED COMING INTO THEIR SYSTEM.

[00:45:04]

BUT IT WAS AT ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY EIGHT KV VOLTAGE IS WHAT THEY NEEDED.

THE CITY OF GREENVILLE ONLY HAS SIXTY NINE KV VOLTAGE IN THEIR SYSTEM AND THEY DIDN'T NECESSARILY HAVE THE STAFF EXPERTISE TO ADDRESS THE ONE THIRTY EIGHT KV SYSTEM, AS WELL AS SOME OF THE REGULATORY COMPLIANCE THAT'S ASSOCIATED WITH HAVING THE HIGHER VOLTAGE SYSTEM. NATURALLY WE DO, SINCE MOST OF OUR SYSTEM IS ONE HUNDRED THIRTY EIGHT KV OR HIGHER IN VOLTAGE.

THIS IS A SIMILAR SITUATION WHERE FARMERSVILLE IS NEEDING A NEW SUBSTATION, IT'S AN OLDER SUBSTATION THAT THEY'VE THEY'VE OUTGROWN AND IT'S ALSO IN A FLOODPLAIN.

SO WHAT THEY'VE DONE IS THEY'VE DELEGATED TO US.

WHAT YOU CAN DO IN ERCOT IS DELEGATE TO ANOTHER UTILITY TO BUILD, OWN AND OPERATE THESE FACILITIES. AND SO THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE DOING IN THIS SITUATION, ALLOWING US TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ON THAT INVESTMENT.

THE NEXT ITEM IS THE ELM GROVE SUBSTATION EXTENSION.

COUNCIL MAY RECALL, I THINK IT WAS A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO THAT THERE WAS SOME LAND SOLD TO FARMERS ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE OVER BY THE HINTON LANDFILL.

THIS IS FOR A DISTRIBUTION SUBSTATION BECAUSE OF THE INCREASE OF LOAD IN THEIR AREA TO BE ABLE TO SERVE THAT LOAD, THEY NEED A TRANSMISSION CONNECTION, WHICH MEANS WE WILL BE EXTENDING OUR SUBSTATION OVER THE TRANSMISSION SERVICE OVER INTO THEIR DISTRIBUTION SUBSTATION. THAT ESTIMATED COST IS THE FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION DOLLARS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. ERCOT HAS REQUESTED THAT WE INCREASE SOME TRANSMISSION LINE CAPACITY ON OUR SYSTEM.

IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, THERE'S TWO TWO LINES THAT ARE IN QUESTION AND IT'S BECAUSE OF GROWTH THAT'S ACTUALLY MORE AROUND THE GARLAND AREA.

SINCE TRANSMISSION IS A SHARED SYSTEM IN ERCOT, THOSE ELECTRONS GO WHEREVER THEY NEED TO GO. AND SO BECAUSE OF GROWTH IN AND AROUND THE GARLAND AREA, WE'RE NEEDING TO INCREASE CAPACITY ON THE SYSTEM.

TO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ALSO HAS TO BE SOME IMPROVEMENTS AT THE BRAND AND COLLEGE SUBSTATION, THE TERMINALS TO INCREASE THE AMPERAGE THAT'S AT THESE STATIONS.

SO FOR TWENTY, TWENTY ONE, WE'RE LOOKING AT ROUGHLY TWO POINT SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS FOR THIS WITH THE TOTAL COST OF ROUGHLY THREE POINT SIX MILLION, WHICH WOULD BE COMPLETED IN TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

THERE WILL BE A COUPLE OF ADDITIONAL TERMINAL UPGRADES IN NEXT YEAR'S PRESENTATION, BUT FOR NOW, ECORT'S LOOKING AT THESE TWO PARTICULAR STATIONS.

THE NEXT PROJECT IS, AND I'LL TRY TO PRONOUNCE THIS CORRECTLY, NABATOTO SWITCH STATION, WHICH IS LOOKING AT TRYING TO INTERCONNECT THE SOLAR FARM INTO THE HOUSTON AIRPORT PROJECT, WHICH AGAIN, THIS IS ANOTHER ONE OF THESE ANCILLARY BENEFITS THAT WE'RE RECEIVING FROM THE INVESTMENT THAT WE'VE MADE IN THIS TRANSMISSION LINE.

WE'RE IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT.

WE'RE PRETTY CLOSE.

I THINK PROBABLY WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO.

WE'RE HOPEFUL TO HAVE THE INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT SIGNED WITH THIS PARTY.

FOR TWO THOUSAND TWENTY ONE, WE'RE LOOKING AT ROUGHLY ONE POINT NINE MILLION DOLLARS OF REQUESTED FUNDING.

IN TOTAL, THIS PROJECT WOULD BE FOURTEEN POINT FOUR MILLION DOLLARS WITH AN ESTIMATED COMPLETION OF TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

LASTLY, FOR SUBSTATIONS IS AN UPGRADE TO THE OAKLAND SUBSTATION, AND THIS HAS REACHED WELL BEYOND ITS END OF ITS USEFUL LIFE.

IT WAS INSTALLED IN SERVICE IN NINETEEN SIXTY SEVEN.

SO WE SURPASSED I THINK FROM WHAT I'VE HEARD, A 50 YEAR KIND OF GOAL OUT THERE, THE MARK, THIS ONE SINCE IT WAS NINETEEN SIXTY SEVEN WILL BE SURPASSING THAT.

ONE THING THAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THIS ONE IS THAT THE OTHER SUBSTATION IMPROVEMENTS THAT WE TALKED ABOUT WERE ALL ONE HUNDRED PERCENT TRANSMISSION RELATED, SO THEY WOULD BE FULL COST RECOVERY, PLUS THE RETURN IN OUR TRANSMISSION RATE.

THE OAKLAND SUBSTATION WILL BE PRIMARILY DISTRIBUTION IMPROVEMENTS.

AND SO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE IS FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO START THE DESIGN PROCESS.

TOTAL COST WOULD BE RIGHT AT FOUR MILLION DOLLARS WITH COMPLETION IN TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. OUR NEXT PROGRAM IS TRANSMISSION, THE FIRST PROJECT HERE IS CONSTRUCTING A LINE TO INTERCONNECT A SOLAR FARM.

THIS WOULD BE THE TRANSMISSION LINE THAT WOULD BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE VERY FIRST PROJECT THAT WE TALKED ABOUT, THE VERY FIRST SUBSTATION PROJECT.

[00:50:01]

SO THIS IS STILL IN NEGOTIATIONS AS FAR AS THE INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT.

BUT WE'RE LOOKING AT FOUR POINT SIX MILLION DOLLARS ASSOCIATED WITH BUILDING THIS TRANSMISSION LINE TO INTERCONNECT THAT NEW SOLAR FARM.

THE NEXT PROJECT IS ANOTHER ONE THAT WOULD BE CONNECTING A SOLAR FARM INTO OUR WEST TEXAS LINES AND PECOS COUNTY.

THIS PROJECT IS LOOKING AT THREE POINT SIX MILLION DOLLARS IN TOTAL COST.

SAY WE'RE PROBABLY WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS, HOPEFULLY HAVING THE INTERCONNECTION AGREEMENT FINALIZED FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT.

THE LAST ONE ON THIS SLIDE IS THE LOOKOUT TO WYLIE TAP, AND THIS IS MORE OF A PLACEHOLDER . RIGHT NOW, THE LOOKOUT TO WYLIE TRANSMISSION LINE, THE LIMITING FACTOR FROM A CAPACITY STANDPOINT IS ACTUALLY AT THE FIREWHEEL SUBSTATION.

BUT WE HAVE SPACE LIMITATIONS THERE RIGHT NOW THAT ARE NOT ALLOWING US TO THIS TIME TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SOME OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS, TO INCREASE THE CAPACITY.

WE DO NOT HAVE AN ISSUE RIGHT NOW ON THE TRANSMISSION LINE OF MEETING ANY TYPE OF LOW DEMANDS. BUT IN THE FUTURE, IF GROWTH CONTINUES TO HAPPEN AROUND THE GARLAND AREA, THAT COULD BECOME AN ISSUE AS A TEMPORARY SOLUTION.

WE COULD DO WHAT'S CALLED A TAP WHILE WE'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A LONG TERM SOLUTION ASSOCIATED WITH CAPACITY ISSUE.

SO FOR RIGHT NOW, THIS IS REALLY MORE OF A PLACEHOLDER FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT.

AND THE REQUEST IS FOR ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. THE LAST PROJECT FOR TRANSMISSION IS A CONTINUATION OF OUR UPGRADE OF OUR SIXTY NINE KILOVOLT SYSTEM TO ONE THIRTY EIGHT.

THIS IS REALLY IN RESPONSE TO, AGAIN, INCREASED LOAD AROUND THE GARLAND AREA.

THE ONE THIRTY EIGHT KV SYSTEM CAN HANDLE MORE FROM A CAPACITY STANDPOINT AND HAS A GREATER RELIABILITY.

WE'RE LOOKING AT REQUESTING ONE POINT FIVE MILLION FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE, WITH THE PROJECT BEING COMPLETED IN TWENTY TWENTY TWO AT AN ESTIMATED COST OF RIGHT AT SEVEN POINT EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE HAVE TWO PROJECTS IN OUR PRODUCTION AREA THIS YEAR.

THE FIRST IS INSTALLING AN ODORANT SYSTEM ON THE GAS PIPELINE THAT WE OWN THAT FEEDS AS A BACKUP SUPPLY TO THE OLINGER POWER PLANT.

CURRENTLY, THERE IS ODORANT THAT'S IN THE SYSTEM AND IT IS PROVIDED BY THE SUPPLIER.

BUT THE RAILROAD COMMISSION HAS IS TAKING A POSITION NOW THAT IT REALLY SHOULD BE THE OWNER OF THE PIPELINE PROVIDING THE ODORANTS.

AND SO WE WILL BE INSTALLING AN ODORANT SYSTEM ON THIS PIPELINE WITH COMPLETION EXPECTED THIS YEAR. THE LAST ITEM HERE FOR PRODUCTION IS A REBUILD OF THE CIRCULATING WATER PUMP, WHICH IS THE ORIGINAL WATER PUMP UNIT FIVE, THE NINETEEN SEVENTY TWO MODEL.

SO WE WILL BE REBUILDING IT.

I THINK WE'RE A LITTLE SHORT OF THE 50 YEAR MARK.

I THINK SO THAT PUTS US AT FORTY NINE YEARS.

BUT SINCE WE'RE GOING TO BE KEEPING IT AND REBUILDING IT, WE WILL GO AHEAD AND SURPASS THAT. OUR PLAN IS TO SURPASS THAT 50 YEAR MARK WITH THIS PUMP AND THEN FOR THE LAST SLIDE PLEASE, OR I GUESS THE LAST SLIDE ON THE PROJECTS.

UNDER OUR VARIOUS IMPROVEMENTS, WE HAVE THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS WORTH OF TEST EQUIPMENT PRIMARILY ASSOCIATED WITH OUR SUBSTATIONS.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, OUR GROWTH IN OUR WEST TEXAS OPERATIONS IS CONTINUING TO INCREASE.

AND SO WE'RE SEEING A NEED FOR TESTING EQUIPMENT ON SITE.

AND IT'S ACTUALLY EIGHT PIECES OF TEST OF EQUIPMENT THAT WE WILL HAVE THERE, PRIMARILY FOR USE OUT IN WEST TEXAS.

AND NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND SO, IN SUMMARY, AS FAR AS NEW PROJECTS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR FUNDING FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE, WE'RE LOOKING AT JUST SHY OF THIRTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS.

AND IF THERE'S ANY QUESTIONS WOULD BE HAPPY TO TRY TO ANSWER THEM.

VERY GOOD. ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. KLEIN ON THE FUNDING REQUESTS? COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, DARRELL, FOR THE PRESENTATION.

JUST A QUICK QUESTION.

WHAT'S THE FUTURE? IS MCCREE SUBSTATION ANYWHERE ON THE LIST FOR A REDO OR FOR PARTICULARLY THINKING OF THE I WOULD IMAGINE IT'S ROUGHLY THE SAME AGE AS OAKLAND AND IT

[00:55:06]

COULD CERTAINLY USE A BETTER APPEARANCE.

I KNOW WE TALKED ABOUT THAT BEFORE.

MCCREE IS WILL BE UNDER RECONSTRUCTION.

IT'S NOT IN THIS PRESENTATION BECAUSE IT'S ALREADY AN EXISTING PROJECT THAT HAS BEEN FUNDED. AND SO WE ALREADY HAVE PROCESSES UNDERWAY ASSOCIATED WITH MCCREE.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE WITH MCCREE BECAUSE OF THE EXPANSION THAT'S HAPPENING THERE. WE'RE HAVING TO PUT IN A SIX HUNDRED MVA AUTO TRANSFORMER, AS WELL AS SOME ADDITIONAL CAPACITY IMPROVEMENTS.

ONE OF THE THINGS I THINK YOU WILL LIKE IS THAT YOU WILL SEE A FENCE SIMILAR TO WHAT YOU WOULD SEE AT THE CAMPBELL STATION AND THE LOOKOUT STATION.

SO SIMILAR TO THAT TYPE OF FENCING IS WHAT YOU'LL SEE IS ONE OF THE NO CLIMB WITH BLACK METAL THAT'S AROUND.

SO I THINK FROM AN AESTHETIC STANDPOINT, YOU'LL BE PLEASED WITH THAT APPROACH.

BUT, YES, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE QUITE A BIT OF ACTIVITY OUT OF MCCREE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. VERY GOOD, COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

HOW'RE YOU DOING, DARRELL? THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I SEE THAT WE'RE DOING A LOT OF SOLAR ELECTRICITY AND ALL THAT.

DO WE HAVE ANY WIND POWER? YES, SIR, WE'VE GOT WIND POWER THAT'S IN THE PANHANDLE, WE HAVE TO CONTRACTS FOR WIND POWER IN THE PANHANDLE OF TEXAS AND THEN WE HAVE TWO CONTRACTS FOR WIND POWER THAT ARE DOWN ALONG THE COAST OF TEXAS.

AND JUST FOR CLARIFICATION, ALL THESE PROJECTS THAT WE'RE LISTING THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH EITHER SUBSTATION OR TRANSMISSION IMPROVEMENTS, THOSE SOLAR FARMS ARE OWNED BY OTHERS. SO THESE WOULD BE SOLAR FARM OWNERS THAT ARE WANTING TO CONNECT INTO THE SYSTEM.

GPNL WILL NOT BE OWNING ANY OF THESE FARMS. WE DO HAVE ONE OF THE SOLAR FARMS THAT HAS INTERCONNECTED INTO THE SYSTEM, INTO OUR OUR LINES, THAT WE ACTUALLY DO HAVE A CONTRACT WITH RECEIVING SOLAR.

SO THERE IS SOME CONNECTION OR TIE THERE BETWEEN THE SOLAR FARM AND US RECEIVING SOLAR POWER. AND WHERE IN THE GULF COAST ARE WE CONNECTED? WE WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT EAST AND NORTH OF THE BROWNSVILLE AREA ASSOCIATED WITH WHERE OUR LINES ARE.

SO THAT'S PART OF THE KING RANCH OR THE OTHER BIG RANCH? A LITTLE FURTHER EAST AND DOWN THAN THE KING RANCH.

OH, OKAY.

OK, SIR, THANK YOU.

THAT'S ALL I WANT TO KNOW, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, MR. KLEIN, I THINK WE HAVE CLEARED THE QUEUE, SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU. AND OUR LAST PRESENTATION, UH, 1F IS WATER WASTEWATER FUNDING REQUEST, WES. ALL RIGHT, GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME ON THIS EVENING.

I'M HERE TO PRESENT OUR TWENTY TWENTY ONE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE. SO OUR FIRST NEW PROJECT WE'RE DOING INTERCEPTOR MAINS.

THIS PROJECT IS WE WANT TO BEGIN DESIGN OF A NEW THIRTY SIX INCH PARALLEL INTERCEPTOR LINE FROM ROWLETT CREEK TREATMENT PLANT ALL THE WAY TO GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE.

THIS IS ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT WAS IDENTIFIED IN OUR COLLECTION MASTER PLAN IN TWENTY NINETEEN. AND ESSENTIALLY WE HAVE A FORTY EIGHT INCH LINE THAT GOES FROM THE PLANT TO THE GEORGE BUSH AREA, BUT IT'S REACHED CAPACITY.

SO ESSENTIALLY WE CAN CONVEY TWENTY EIGHT MILLION GALLONS OF WATER THROUGH THAT PIPELINE PER DAY. AND WE'RE BUMPING UP ON TWENTY SEVEN.

TWENTY SIX. TWENTY SEVEN.

SO THIS NEW LINE WILL GIVE US AN ADDED CAPABILITY OF FORTY THREE MGD.

SO NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS JUST A MAP OUTLINING THE NEW PIPELINE, THE PARALLEL LINE.

WE'LL BEGIN DESIGN THIS YEAR AND IT'S ABOUT EIGHTEEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED LINEAR FEET.

SO WE HOPE TO HAVE THIS PROJECT COMPLETED WITH CONSTRUCTION PROBABLY THE NEXT THREE TO

[01:00:02]

FOUR YEARS.

NEXT SLIDE. OUR ROWLETT CREEK MAINTENANCE CENTER RENOVATIONS CURRENTLY OUR MAINTENANCE STAFF IS HOUSED ITS AND OLDER METAL BUILDING ON THE SITE AND AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE PICTURES, ITS PAST ITS USEFUL LIFE; IT'S STARTING TO CORRODE AND CRUMBLE, SO WE WANT TO REPLACE THAT BUILDING.

THAT WAS PART OF OUR 2016 MASTER PLAN PROJECT.

NEXT SLIDE. SO THIS IS JUST A PICTURE OF THE BUILDING ITSELF.

THERE'S A LOT OF CORROSION ON THE INSIDE PART OF IT BECAUSE IT'S, AGAIN, A METAL BUILDING. AND IF YOU CAN SEE DOWN AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER, WE CAN PUT SOME CONEX BOXES THAT ARE JUST FOR ADDITIONAL STORAGE SO WE CAN STORE TOOLS THERE SO IT WOULDN'T GET LOST OR STOLEN. BUT THIS PROJECT ACTUALLY WILL BE IN ADDITION TO.

SO AS YOU RECALL, WE PUT IN OUR NEW OPERATION CENTER.

THERE'S A BUILDING RIGHT BEHIND IT THAT WE CAN REHAB.

SO IT'S NOT A BRAND NEW BUILDING.

IT'S JUST GOING TO BE A REHAB OF A BUILDING BEHIND THE NEW OPERATION CENTER.

NEXT SLIDE. SO SUMMARY OF NEWS CIP PROJECTS.

TOTAL FOR WASTEWATER COLLECTION AND TREATMENT, A LITTLE BIT OVER ONE POINT EIGHT MILLION.

NEXT SLIDE. RELOCATION'S A MAIN PART OF PAVING.

COUNCIL, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE PROJECTS THAT I'VE STATED BEFORE WHERE WE WORK WITH ENGINEERING AN STREETS TO MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THEY PUT IN A BRAND NEW STREET, WE DON'T HAVE TO COME IN SIX MONTHS LATER, PUT IN A WATER LINE OR SEWER LINE AND BUST UP A BRAND NEW STREET. SO THESE ARE THE PROJECTS.

WE WORK WITH THEM. THERE'S A THREE YEAR PLAN AND THESE ARE THE ONES WE'VE IDENTIFIED FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE FOR WATER.

NEXT SLIDE SAME THING FOR WASTEWATER COLLECTION, THE SEWER LINES, THESE ARE THE PROJECTS WE IDENTIFIED FOR THIS YEAR FOR THE RELOCATION OF THOSE MEETINGS, AND THAT WILL DO IT.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD WES. ALL RIGHT, ANY QUESTIONS ON WATER WASTEWATER FUNDING REQUEST? COUNCIL MEMBER MCNEAL.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

HI, WES. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

YOU INDICATED, I BELIEVE, THAT THE LINE TO ONE YOU'RE REACHING THE CAPACITY THERE.

SO WITH THE NEW LINE PROPOSAL, WHAT DO YOU THINK THE LIFE EXPECTANCY THERE WILL? DO YOU THINK THAT NEW LINE YES, IT WILL, COUNCIL MEMBER.

THE LINE THAT'S IN THERE NOW, THAT 48 INCH, WE'RE ACTUALLY SLIP LINING IT.

SO THAT'S GOING TO ADD AN ADDITIONAL 40, PROBABLY 50 YEARS TO THAT LINE.

SO THAT LINE IS GOING TO STAY.

THIS THIRTY SIX WILL GIVE US AN ADDITIONAL FORTY THREE MGD CAPACITY AND THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF US FOR THE NEXT 40, 50 YEARS, EVEN WITH THE ANTICIPATED GROWTH IN THAT AREA, WE'LL BE IN REAL GOOD SHAPE. THANK YOU, SIR.

VERY GOOD. UH, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

WES, I JUST HAD A QUESTION, DO YOU HAVE SCHEDULING DOWN YET? I'M ASKING PARTICULARLY ABOUT THE STATE STREET, MAIN STREET ALLEY WITH WATER AND WASTEWATER. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOUR SCHEDULE IS FOR THAT? WE'RE LOOKING AT THE SQUARE REDESIGN STARTING LATER THIS YEAR, SO IT'S GOING TO BE A BIG MESS. DO YOU HAVE A DATE KIND OF? HAVE TO CHECK WITH ENGINEERING ON THAT TO BE SURE, BUT I CAN GET BACK WITH YOU ON THAT TO VERIFY THOSE DATES.

ALL RIGHT. I'D APPRECIATE THAT.

THANK YOU, SIR. ALL RIGHT, VERY GOOD.

I THINK WE'VE CLEARED THE QUEUE ON WATER WASTEWATER.

UH, THANK YOU WES. THANK YOU.

AND THAT WILL BRING US TO ITEM FOUR OR EXCUSE ME, ITEM TWO: COUNCIL DISCUSSION AND

[2. Council Discussion and Direction Regarding 2021 Proposed CIP.]

DIRECTION REGARDING THE TWO THOUSAND TWENTY ONE PROPOSED CIP.

AS ALLISON SAID EARLIER, WE WILL CONTINUE THIS DISCUSSION OVER TWO MORE WORK SESSIONS TO COME AND THAT THIS COMING MONDAY NIGHT'S WORK SESSION, WE WILL HAVE ALL OF THE MANAGING DIRECTORS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER SPECIFIC QUESTIONS THAT HAVE EITHER BEEN POSED OR WILL BE POSED IN THE TIME IN BETWEEN.

SO I WOULD ANTICIPATE US HAVING SOME DISCUSSIONS, CERTAINLY.

AND AGAIN, AS ALLISON MENTIONED, CERTAINLY TUCKERVILLE WILL BE ON THAT LIST OF FURTHER

[01:05:02]

DISCUSSIONS. BUT IS THERE ANYTHING, ANYTHING TONIGHT THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS OR QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE POSED OR, UH, BEFORE WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THE FUTURE WORK SESSIONS? ALL RIGHT, I SEE NONE.

COUNCIL, EARLIER, MAYOR PRO TEM NICKERSON ASKED FOR A MOMENT TO SPEAK TONIGHT, AND WE'LL GO AHEAD AND DO THAT NOW, SIR.

GO AHEAD. THANK YOU, MAYOR, I APPRECIATE THE MOMENT HERE FOR THAT.

YES, COUNCIL, I JUST WANTED TO MAKE A SHORT ANNOUNCEMENT.

AFTER THINKING ABOUT THIS FOR A LONG TIME AND LOOKING AT IT THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO AND WHERE I'M GOING PROFESSIONALLY AS WELL.

I HAVE JUST STRUGGLED WITH THIS FOR SOME TIME, BUT I'M FINALLY MAKING A DECISION THAT I WILL NOT RUN FOR MY THIRD TERM REELECTION, AND I'LL HAVE A LITTLE MORE TO SAY AT THE END OF THE TERM ABOUT ABOUT EVERYTHING AND A FORMAL GOODBYE.

BUT FOR NOW, I JUST WANTED TO GO AHEAD AND MAKE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT SO THAT THE PROCESS CAN MOVE FORWARD IN THE TIMEFRAME IT NEEDS TO.

AND I WILL JUST SAY BRIEFLY THAT THE NEXT THREE OR FOUR MONTHS, I'LL CONTINUE TO WORK AS HARD AS I CAN FOR DISTRICT THREE AND FOR THE CITY.

AND WE'LL HAVE A HOPEFULLY WE'LL COME OUT OF THIS COVID HERE EVENTUALLY AND WE MOVE FORWARD VERY POSITIVELY.

SO THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME THE TIME HERE TONIGHT.

COUNCIL AND TO THE MAYOR.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, SIR.

AND COUNCIL WITH THAT AT 7:06, WE ARE ADJOURNED.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE YOU ALL BACK HERE MONDAY NIGHT.
