GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO THE MONDAY, MAY 3RD, 2021 WORK SESSION FOR THE GARLAND CITY COUNCIL.

UH, THE FIRST ITEM ON OUR AGENDA IS PUBLIC COMMENTS ON WORK SESSION ITEMS. I DO NOT HAVE, UH, ANYONE REGISTERED, UH, TO SPEAK THE SAME EVENING.

UM, LET'S SEE.

I'LL JUST DOUBLE CHECK THAT REAL QUICK.

UH, BUT UH, SEEING NO ONE IN THE QUEUE, I WILL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON.

UH, ITEM TWO IS CONSIDERED

[2. Consider the Consent Agenda]

THE CONSENT AGENDA, UH, FOR TOMORROW NIGHT.

I HAVEN'T SEEN OR HEARD OF ANY ITEMS TO BE PULLED AND CONSIDERED SEPARATELY, BUT OBVIOUSLY IF SOMETHING COMES UP BETWEEN NOW AND THEN, UH, LET US KNOW THAT WAY WE CAN MAKE SURE WE HAVE STAFF AVAILABLE.

AND NOW WE'LL MOVE ON TO ITEM THREE WRITTEN BRIEFINGS

[3. Written Briefings]

[4A. COVID-19 Response Update and Further Actions]

RESPONSE UPDATE AND FURTHER ACTIONS.

AND THERE'S JASON.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

GOOD EVENING.

COUNCIL IS GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL AGAIN.

I'LL ASK MISTY TO SHARE HER SCREEN AND WE'LL RUN THROUGH HER TYPICAL PRESENTATION.

I WILL SAY THAT THE, THE DAILY COUNTS FOR COVID-19 HAVE REMAINED, UH, BETWEEN 15 AND 30 FOR THE PAST MONTH.

SO WE'VE HAD A FAIRLY CONSISTENT RUN OVER THE PAST 30 DAYS.

UM, LOW CASE COUNTS, PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU COMPARE THEM TO THE PEAKS BACK IN, UH, DECEMBER, JANUARY.

SO TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA WHERE WE STAND TODAY, UH, OF COURSE WE, YOU YOU'VE SEEN THIS SLIDE BEFORE.

THE NUMBER IN BLUE AT THE, UH, RIGHT OF THE PAGE 27,969 TOTAL CONFIRMED CASES.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE 27,137 ARE RECOVERED.

UH, WE HAVE UNFORTUNATELY LOST 434 GARLAND RESIDENTS TO COVID-19 AND THAT LEAVES US WITH JUST UNDER 300 ACTIVE CASES, 298.

NOW YOU CAN SEE THE, THE STEADY CASE COUNT THAT I MENTIONED, UM, ON THIS GRAPH, ALTHOUGH THE SCALE DOESN'T, UM, ISN'T EXACTLY GREAT.

BUT, UH, SINCE REALLY MARCH LATE FEBRUARY, EARLY MARCH, WE'VE SEEN A FAIRLY CONSISTENT LOW LEVEL OF COVID-19 ACTIVITY IN THE COMMUNITY, UH, MISTY, IF WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, WE'LL TALK ABOUT, UM, EMPLOYEE IMPACTS, WHICH ALSO THANKFULLY REMAIN A LOW, UH, AS OF TODAY, WE'RE DOWN TO TWO EMPLOYEES THAT ARE CURRENTLY EXCLUDED DUE TO POSITIVE COVID-19.

AND THEN WE HAVE A THIRD EMPLOYEE THAT IS EXCLUDED DUE TO HIGH-RISK CONTEXT.

SO, UM, VERY LOW NUMBERS, WHICH ARE DEPICTED ON THE GRAPH ON THE NEXT SLIDE, UM, WHICH AGAIN SHOWS THE SAME TREND THAT I MENTIONED.

UM, A FEW SLIDES AGO, THE, UH, REALLY SINCE MIDDLE OF MARCH, THE, UM, THE CASES IN THE COMMUNITY AND IN OUR EMPLOYEE POPULATION HAVE REMAINED CONSISTENTLY LOW.

SO THAT'S A REALLY GOOD THING WE WANT TO, WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO TREND AND, AND GET THOSE CASES EVEN LOWER THROUGH VACCINATION EFFORTS.

SO, UH, THE NEXT SLIDE, WE'LL TALK ABOUT OUR, UM, VACCINATIONS THUS FAR WE'VE WE'VE, UH, ADMINISTERED JUST OVER 17001ST DOSES AND ARE APPROACHING 11002ND DOSES ADMINISTERED.

UH, WHICH OF COURSE THESE DOSES ARE JUST ADMINISTERED THROUGH THE GARLAND HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

NOW THIS, THESE NUMBERS DON'T INCLUDE, UM, THE MERIT OF PROVIDERS OUT THERE, UM, BOTH IN THE GARLAND COMMUNITY AND IN THE GREATER, UH, REGIONAL AREA.

OF COURSE, THERE ARE MANY, MANY PROVIDERS THAT FOLKS CAN GO TO, TO GET VACCINES.

BUT OF COURSE THESE ARE THE ONES THAT, UH, THESE ARE THE DOSES THAT WE'D GIVEN EITHER PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC OR A BIG EVENTS AT HOME, OR B JOHNSON STADIUM.

SO THE TOTAL, UM, DOSES ADMINISTERED YOU SEE THERE AT THE BOTTOM IS APPROACHING 28,000 DOSES.

UM, AND THE NEXT SLIDE, UH, WE WILL DISCUSS WHAT WE EXPECT TO BE OUR LAST, UH, EVENT AT HOMER

[00:05:01]

B JOHNSON STADIUM.

AND THIS'LL BE ONE OF OUR BIGGEST EVENTS.

THIS IS A SECOND DOSE EVENT, WHICH IS GOING TO WE'VE INVITED, UM, ABOUT 2,800 PEOPLE, WHICH ARE DUE FOR THEIR SECOND DOSE.

AND OF COURSE, THOSE ARE INDIVIDUALS THAT WE VACCINATED FOUR WEEKS AGO.

SO WE HAD A BIG FIRST ROUND IN IT FOUR WEEKS AGO.

WE'LL FOLLOW UP, UH, THIS WEDNESDAY WITH SECOND DOSE FOR THAT GROUP.

NOW WE'RE ALSO PROVIDING, UM, JOHNSON AND JOHNSON DOSES ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS.

UH, UH, AS LONG AS SUPPLIES LAST, I THINK AS A, THIS AFTERNOON, I'M SORRY.

AS OF YESTERDAY, UH, SATURDAY, I SHOULD SAY WE HAD JUST UNDER 800 J AND J DOSES LEFT.

AND OF COURSE, UM, UH, AS YOU ALL KNOW, THOSE WERE RELEASED FOR USE, UM, FIRST PART OF LAST WEEK.

SO WE'VE BEEN, WE'VE BEEN PROVIDING THOSE DOSES SINCE THEY WERE RELEASED FOR USE.

AGAIN, WE'VE PROVIDED ABOUT A HUNDRED JOHNSON AND JOHNSON VACCINATIONS, BOTH AT, UH, HBJ STATE LAST WEEK AND AT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

AND OF COURSE, AS HAS BEEN THE CASE FOR, I THINK, SIX WEEKS NOW, ANY, UH, CITY STAFF FROM GARLAND RALLY AND SEXY OR ANY, UH, GIS D EMPLOYEES, UM, ARE WELCOME TO COME GET FIRST OR SECOND DOSE AT HVJ EVENT.

UM, AND I BELIEVE THAT THAT IS THE LAST SLIDE MISTY, IF YOU CAN UNSHARE YOUR SCREEN JUST REAL QUICKLY.

UM, AND I KNOW I MENTIONED THIS AT THE, UH, AT THE LAST COUNCIL MEETING AND THIS INFORMATION IS ON OUR WEBPAGE, BUT OUR PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT IS PROVIDING COVID-19 VACCINES ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE FIRST, COME FIRST SERVE BASIS.

NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY.

UM, INDIVIDUALS CAN WALK IN AND GET A VACCINE TYPICALLY IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES.

UM, WE, UH, WE HAVE A STEADY FLOW OF PATIENTS GETTING VACCINES, BUT, BUT THERE IS NOT A TYPICALLY NOT A LINE OR A LONG WAIT.

SO, UH, FOR ANYONE OUT THERE WHO STILL NEEDS THE VACCINE, I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO VISIT OUR PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC.

IT'S A TWO OH SIX CARVER DRIVE.

UH, THE HOURS OF OPERATION ARE SEVEN 30 TO FIVE 30 MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY, UH, EXCLUDING THE, THE MASS EVENTS AT HOMER B JOHNSON.

SO WE'LL BE, WE'LL BE CLOSED MOST OF THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK, UH, FRIDAYS, WE HAVE EXTENDED HOURS.

WE WORK FROM SEVEN 30, 7:30 AM TO 7:00 PM, AND THEN WE'RE ALSO OPEN ON SATURDAY FROM EIGHT TO NINE.

SO THOSE ARE THE HOURS THAT WE INTEND TO STAY AT THE PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC FOR, UM, AT A MINIMUM SEVERAL WEEKS, CERTAINLY UNTIL AS LONG AS DEMAND DICTATES EXPANDED HOURS.

IN ADDITION TO THE HOURS OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC, WE ARE NOW SCHEDULING COMMUNITY VACCINATION EVENTS.

AND FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY WANT TO ATTEND THOSE EVENTS, WE HAVE A CALENDAR, A LINK TO A CALENDAR ON THE VACCINE WEB PAGE, UM, THAT, UH, WE'RE INDIVIDUALS WHERE COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN SEE WHEN, WHEN AND WHERE WE'RE GOING TO BE PROVIDING VACCINES.

I WILL SAY WITH ONE CAVEAT, UM, A FEW OF THE LARGER EMPLOYEE EMPLOYERS IN TOWN HAVE ASKED US TO COME BACK TO NIGHT SHIFTS.

SO THEIR WORKFORCE, OBVIOUSLY THOSE FEW EVENTS AREN'T OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

UM, BUT THAT, THOSE REPRESENT A VERY, UM, A VERY FEW NUMBER OF EVENTS THAT, THAT ARE SCHEDULED AND, UH, WE HAVE A TIME AVAILABLE FOR MORE SCHEDULING.

SO IF ANYBODY OUT THERE LISTENING WOULD LIKE TO SCHEDULE AN EVENT, YOU CAN CONNECT WITH US THROUGH THE HOTLINE AT (972) 205-3900.

SO AGAIN, IF YOU'VE GOT A VENUE, PERHAPS A NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION, A CHURCH, AND A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE INTERESTED IN BEING VACCINATED, GIVE US A CALL AND WE WILL WORK YOU INTO THE SCHEDULE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

UM, THE ONE LAST THING, UM, WE'VE, WE'VE BEEN, UH, PROVIDING, UM, WEEKLY, I'M SORRY, DAILY UPDATES ON COVID-19 FOR, I THINK ABOUT 14 NOW.

UM, IT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER, IT'S NOT QUITE FOREVER.

IT'S ABOUT 14 MONTHS.

UM, OUR INTENT IS TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT.

I SHOULD SAY, PROVIDED THAT THE CASE COUNTS REMAIN LOW AND CONTINUE TO TREND DOWN, OR OUR INTENT IS TO TRANSITION TO A WEEKLY CASE COUNTS AND FATALITY REPORTS BEGINNING IN JUNE.

SO, UM, IF, IF PROVIDED THE CURRENT TREND CONTINUES, UM, IF YOU HAPPEN TO GET ANY QUESTIONS, UM, UH, COME THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE, WE'VE TRANSITIONED TO, UH, WEEKLY UPDATES ON OUR WEBPAGE AND MAYOR DATE.

THAT THAT IS ALL I HAVE.

ALL RIGHT.

VERY GOOD.

UM, WE ACTUALLY ALREADY HAVE EVENTS SCHEDULED.

I BELIEVE OUR FIRST EVENT WE'LL PULL UP THE CALENDAR HERE.

UM, I BELIEVE OUR FIRST EVENT IS THURSDAY.

THAT'S GOING TO BE A LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY, SO THAT'S CONSIDERED A CLOSED EVENT.

WE'LL HAVE, WE'LL HAVE STAFF THERE PROVIDING UNIONIZATION, AND I BELIEVE WE'RE SCHEDULED ON SATURDAY 22ND FOUR.

SO I GOT THEM ALL.

YES, WE'RE SCHEDULED AT SAIGON MALL.

SO WE ALREADY HAVE A FEW EVENTS ONLINE.

AND AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, WE HAVE, UH, UM, WE HAVE THE CAPABILITIES TO ADD MORE.

SO, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, CHURCHES, COMMUNITY GROUPS, BUSINESSES, YOU KNOW, WE'RE, WE'RE READY TO REACH OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY AND SEND OUR STAFF OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY TO, TO BEGIN VACCINATING.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, THAT INFORMATION CAN, CAN WE GET THAT INFORMATION, MAYBE ALL DARCY DARCY'S TEAM OUT TO US SO WE CAN PUSH IT OUT AS A NARRATIVE SO THAT WE CAN PUSH THAT INFORMATION OUT TO THE CONSTITUENTS, TO THE CITY.

UH, I HOPE TO NOT HEAR FROM YOU THIS EVENING, SO THANK YOU.

BOTH DO NOT AWESOME.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM FOUR B

[4B. Street Department Program Update]

STREET DEPARTMENT PROGRAM UPDATE, MR. OLIVER.

OKAY.

UH, I WILL SHARE MY SCREEN HERE, I GUESS I CAN'T START MY VIDEOS AND THAT'S FINE.

UH, OKAY.

OKAY.

SHARE, UH, SO FAR SO GOOD.

LET'S GO HERE.

WHERE'S THE, OKAY.

IS MY PRESENTATION UP, SIR? IF YOU COULD JUST GO TO THE PRESENT.

YEAH, THERE YOU GO.

YOU'RE THERE.

I JUST DON'T.

I WASN'T SEEING IT ON THE SCREEN THERE.

I MEAN, I WOULDN'T SEE IT ON THE VIDEO SCREEN.

UH, UH, THIS IS JUST A REGULAR UPDATE THAT WE TRY TO PROVIDE YOU TO KIND OF KEEP YOU STATUS OF WHAT OUR PROGRAM IS DOING IN THE STREET DEPARTMENT.

I THINK EVERYONE IS PRETTY MUCH AWARE OF THIS, BUT THE, UH, THIS IS KIND OF THE FUNDING STREAM FOR THE LAST, UH, 10 YEARS OR SO OF FUNDING FROM THE DEPARTMENT.

AND YOU SEE, OBVIOUSLY, UH, THERE WAS A HUGE JUMP FROM 13, 14 TO TODAY.

ESSENTIALLY THE BUDGET HAS TRIPLED, UH, AND UH, CERTAIN YEARS IN THOSE WEREN'T SHOWING THE YELLOW OR THE ORANGE PART OF THE BARS WHEN WE WERE GETTING CFP MONEY THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

AND I THINK IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, IT'S PROJECTED THAT WE WILL NOT NEED TO HAVE ANY CIP MONEY IN, IN THE, AS PART OF OUR BUDGET PROCESS.

AND, UH, JUST TO KIND OF

[00:15:01]

THE, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE DOING IS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE PUBLIC, WORKING WITH THE PUBLIC AND MEDIA RELATIONS.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT WORKS OUT OF THE PUBLIC AND MEDIA RELATIONS THAT WE FUND THAT DOES OUR PRESENTATIONS FOR US, OUR REGULAR STREET TALK PUBLICATIONS.

WE DO THE CONSTRUCTION UPDATES.

WE'VE HAD VARIOUS, THERE'S A LIST OF THIS KIND OF VARIOUS VIDEOS THAT WE HAVE CREATED.

ONE OF THE ONES IS WHAT TO EXPECT.

ONE OF MY IS RECONSTRUCTED, WHAT DOES SPITEFULNESS STREETS OVERLAY? THAT'S ACTUALLY IN THE CURRENT, IN THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE PUBLICATION, AND WE'RE WORKING WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO INCLUDE THEIR PROJECTS IN THE STREET, TOP BRIEFS AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND THEN THINGS THAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO IS WE'RE LOOKING TO DO A VIDEO ON WHAT THEY DO WHEN, WHEN MY STREET IS ACTUALLY RECONSTRUCTED.

AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO JUST DO A SERIES OF SHORT 32ND TO ONE MINUTE CLIPS OF, UH, DIFFERENT PROCESSES THAT WE DO JUST TO LET PEOPLE THE PUBLIC KNOW WHAT WE DO.

AND THEN PART OF THE THING IS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT PUBLIC KNOWS WHO TO CONTACT WHEN THEY'VE GOT VARIOUS PROBLEMS. I THINK A LOT OF THINGS TEND TO COME STRAIGHT LIGHTS AND SIGNALS TEND TO COME TO ME FOR SOME REASON BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT THAT'S NOT OUR DEPARTMENT, THAT'S OUR NOT, WE JUST FORWARD IT TO THE APPROPRIATE PERSON, BUT IF WE CAN GET PEOPLE STARTED IN THE FIRST SPOT, IN THE FIRST PLACE THAT WILL SAVE THEM ONE LESS TRANSFER.

UM, THIS IS A KIND OF A UPDATE OF THE STREET MAINTENANCE, ASPHALT PATCHING UPDATE.

WE'VE ACTUALLY COMPLETED 16, FEWER POTHOLES AND PATCHES THAN THIS TIME LAST YEAR.

AND THAT'S DUE TO THE CONTINUOUS, UH, REDUCTION OF SERVICE FOR REQUESTS.

AND THAT'S PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS, ONE FOR ALL THE PROJECTS THAT WE'RE DOING THROUGHOUT TOWN CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS, AND THEN THE OVERLAY PROJECTS HAVE REALLY WHEN WE'RE OVERLAYING THEM, THAT GENERALLY REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF THAT HAS HELPED REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF, UH, POTHOLE REPAIR REQUESTS THAT WE'VE GOTTEN.

THIS IS KIND OF A, THIS IS A HEAT MAP OF THE CITY THAT'S CREATED FROM OUR CARDIOGRAPH SYSTEM.

AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'VE BEEN DOING A LOT OF THE, THE, THE DARK YELLOW AREAS ARE THOSE AREAS WHERE WE'RE DOING A LOT OF PATCHING AND YOU'LL SEE THAT WE HAVE A PRETTY, PRETTY ACTIVE, UH, PATCHING PROGRAM GOING ON, BUT IN THAT CONVERSELY RESULTS IN THAT THE POTHOLE, UH, THE HEAT MAP FOR THE POTHOLE REPAIRS IS DOWN QUITE A BIT.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S, UM, ALL THAT EFFORT'S GOING MORE TOWARDS THE MAJOR PATCHES AND TOWARDS THE OVERLAYS, WHICH IS REDUCING OUR INDIVIDUAL, UH, AND OUR BUDGET THIS YEAR, WHERE WE'RE TRENDING ON OUR MAINTENANCE BUDGET.

WE'RE TRENDING A LITTLE, LITTLE LOW, BUT THE, THE, UM, THE OVERLAYS TEND TO BE MORE OF A SUMMER ACTIVITY.

SO THAT, THAT, THAT ACTIVE THAT SPENDING ON IS NOT ALWAYS AS TRUE STRAIGHT LINE.

AND WE, WE GET TO THAT MORE IN THE SUMMER MONTHS WHEN WE GOT OBVIOUSLY BETTER WEATHER AND, UH, AND GENERALLY THE LACK OF RAIN, YOU KNOW, SUMMER MONTHS THAT WE CAN REALLY GET AFTER THE OVERLAYS.

BUT THAT'S JUST THE, THIS IS THE LIST OF ALL THE ACTIVITIES YOU DO.

I THINK MOST OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE ACTIVITIES THAT WE, THAT WE TAKE CARE OF THE CONSTRUCTION.

ONCE AGAIN, WE'VE GOT THE STREET RECONSTRUCTION OR CONCRETE SLAB REPAIR OF THE ALLEY CONSTRUCTION ALLEY, SLAB REPAIR, AND OF COURSE THE LEVEL LIFTING, BUT, UH, WE ARE, UM, ACTUALLY THIS IS BR THROUGH A LITTLE AHEAD OF BUDGET BECAUSE WE'RE, AND THEN, YOU KNOW, LAST YEAR WE WERE DOWN A LITTLE BIT WITH THE, WITH COVID, BUT WE REALLY PICKED IT UP THIS YEAR.

AND WE'VE GOT A LOT OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AND A LOT OF CONTRACT PROJECTS THAT ARE ONGOING THERE THAT GOT A LOT OF THAT MONEY SPENT IN THE FIRST, FIRST PART OF THE YEAR, UH, FIVE YEAR.

UH, IT WAS JUST KIND OF A FIVE-YEAR ROLLING ANALYSIS OF WHAT WE'RE DOING STARTING WITH.

WHEN WE REALLY KIND OF RAMPED UP WITH OUR OVERLAYS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE, UM, WE HAVE WORKED ON 200, TWO 25 LANE MILES OF STREET REPAIR AND STREET CONSTRUCTION.

THAT'S NINE AND A HALF PERCENT OF ALL THE TOTAL LANE MILES AND CITY.

YOU'VE GOTTEN SOME KIND OF ATTENTION IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

WE'VE WORKED ON 22.4 OR FIVE LANE MILES OF ALLEYS.

THAT'S JUST SLIGHTLY LESS THAN 7% OF THE TOTAL ALLEYS.

AND THEN WITH THE ASPHALT OVERLAYS, WE HAVE WORKED ON SIX AND A HALF PERCENT OF THE LANE MILES.

SO OF THE, UM, OF ALL THE STREETS AND ALLEYS IN OUR NETWORK, WE, IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS, WE'VE DONE WORK ON ROUGHLY 15% ON 15% OF THE STREETS AND NOW, AND OR ALLEYS HAVE GOTTEN SOME KIND OF REPAIR AND OR OVERLAY AND OR RECONSTRUCTION.

SO I THINK THAT'S PRETTY GOOD ACCOMPLISHMENT FROM WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING.

THEY'RE JUST THE ESTIMATES OF WHAT WILL GO IN WHEN WE'RE REALLY FOCUSING MORE ON THE STREETS RIGHT NOW, TREATING REPAIR AND STREET RECONSTRUCTION.

I'M DOING A LITTLE WORK ON THE ALLEYS, BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH RIGHT NOW.

UM, LIKE I SAY, THE, THE, THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM RAMPED UP FROM THE CARDIOGRAPH PROGRAM THAT WE IMPLEMENTED IN JULY OF 2018, UH, IN OUR CURRENT PROGRAM, WE ADDED A FOURTH YEAR.

WE ADDED THE 2020 INTO OUR PROGRAM AND WE'VE ACTUALLY ADDED SOME

[00:20:01]

WORK IN 2021 WHERE WE HAVE INSPECTED ALL OF OUR STREETS AND ALLEYS, AND WE'RE PUTTING TOGETHER RIGHT NOW.

WE JUST MET THIS MORNING ON OUR FINALIZING, TRYING TO FINALIZING AND GETTING OUR LIST TO THE YOU, THE UTILITY COMPANIES TO EVALUATE WHICH, UH, PARTICULARLY WATER AND SEWER DEPARTMENT, WHICH WATER AND SEWER PROJECTS ARE GOING TO GET REPAIRED.

SO, UM, WE'RE HOPING THAT THAT, THAT, UH, BY JULY, THAT'S PROBABLY MAYBE A LITTLE OPTIMISTIC BECAUSE I FOUND OUT TODAY THAT THERE'S STILL A COUPLE MORE WEEKS OF WORK.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO IS WHEN WE'RE WORKING IN AREAS WHERE WE'VE ESTABLISHED OUR PROGRAM AND THE, THE, THE ONES THAT DO BASED ON NEED, WE'RE TRYING TO LOOK AT THE ALLEYS IN THOSE, IN THOSE AREAS AND ALLEYS AND STREETS IN THOSE AREAS WHERE THEY MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY FAILED AND MAY NOT BE A ALLEY.

BUT IF WE'RE WORKING ON A COUPLE OF ALLEYS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, AND THIS ONE'S SLIGHTLY, SLIGHTLY LESS, BUT COULD WARRANT CONSTRUCTION, WE'RE TRYING TO PACKAGE AND LOOK MORE AT NEIGHBORHOOD, UM, SCENARIOS SO THAT WHEN WE, WHEN WE'RE BUILDING STEM, WHEN WE'RE CONSTRUCTING STUFF, WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET THE CALL FROM WHY DIDN'T YOU, YOU KNOW, WHY AREN'T YOU WORKING ON MY ALLEY? YOU WORKED ON THE OTHER ONE, THAT'S A LITTLE WORSE.

AND SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN TO CITIZENS, YOU KNOW, KIND OF HOW, HOW THAT, UH, EVALUATION PROCESS TAKES PLACE, BUT THE SCENARIO BUILDER AS ALLOWING US TO DO A LOT BETTER PROJECTIONS, JUST KIND OF SOME HIGHLIGHTS.

WE DID COMPLETE A MAJOR ASPHALT REHABILITATION ON THE ROTOR ON THE ROUTE TO THE HINT LANDFILL IN SAXY THIS YEAR, DALLAS COUNTY HAS FUNDED 50% OF THE BUDGET COSTS, AND WE HAVE DONE THE LAST MILE.

WE'RE REALLY SEEING A GOOD RESULTS FROM THAT LAST MILE PROJECT WHERE WE'RE GOING IN AND JUST KNOCKING OUT, UM, UH, SLABS WHERE AREAS THAT HAVE BEEN REPAIRED MULTIPLE TIMES ARE GOING INTO NEIGHBORHOODS.

STREETS ARE IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE AND GETTING THE ONE OR TWO, UM, ONE OR TWO SPOTS THAT ARE BAD IN BAD CONDITION AND, AND TAKING CARE OF THEM.

SO, UM, AND THEN THE, UH, WE BEGIN THE TRANSITION.

WE HAVE BEGAN THE TRANSITION TO THE RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALK, COST REPAIRS SHOW SHARING PROGRAM, AND THE ARTERIAL COST COLLECTOR SIDEWALK REPLACEMENT PROGRAM.

IN OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR, WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING OUR OWN SEPARATE CONTRACT FOR THAT PROJECT, SO THAT WE WILL NOT HAVE TO RELY ON THE, UH, THE LARGER CONTRACT WHERE THE PROCESS AREN'T NECESSARILY AS GOOD, BECAUSE IT'S MORE FOCUSED ON THE STREET CONSTRUCTION BECAUSE SIDEWALK REPLACEMENT PROGRAM, WE'VE, WE'RE FULLY TRANSITIONED.

WE'RE REALLY, UNFORTUNATELY, WE'RE, WE'RE BEHIND SCHEDULE ON THAT TRANSITION.

WE DO HAVE, UH, ALL THE PERSONNEL IN PLACE THAT WE'VE HIRED TO DO THAT.

WE ACTUALLY, THE, THE NEW, UM, THE ACTUAL, THE STREET TECHNICIAN WAS PROMOTED TO THE SIDEWALL REPLACEMENT.

SO HE'S KIND OF TRAINING HIS REPLACEMENT, SOMEWHAT.

WE'RE WORKING WITH THE FINANCE AND ENGINEERING TO MANAGE THE FINANCIAL ASPECT.

THAT'S PART OF THE PROBLEM IS, UH, I THINK EVERYONE AGREED THAT WE DIDN'T WANT TO GET INTO MONEY TAKING BUSINESS.

SO WE'RE WORKING ON THE LOGISTICS OF THE FINANCIAL ASPECT OF THAT STILL, BUT WE ARE EVALUATING OUR REQUESTS FOR ABILITY ABILITY BASED ON THE NEW, UH, THE NEWLY REVISED ORDINANCE.

UM, I WOULD SAY WE HOPE TO GO OUT TO BID NEXT MONTH WITH THE SIDEWALK CONTRACT.

AND, BUT WE ARE, IF, IF WE RUN ACROSS THINGS THAT DO NEED IMMEDIATE ATTENTION, WE DO HAVE THE ABILITY TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE.

AND WE ARE TAKING CARE OF THOSE.

AND WE HAVE BEEN BEGIN EVALUATING ALL OF OUR ARTERIAL INDUSTRIAL INFLECTRA SIDEWALKS IS DETERMINED.

THE SYSTEM WIDE REPLACEMENT NEEDS AND DEVELOP THE PROPERTY NEEDS, BUT WITH OVER 400 MILES OF SIDEWALKS ON THESE STREETS, IT'S GONNA, IT'S GOING TO TAKE US A WHILE TO GET DOING THAT, TO COMPLETE THAT PRO THAT EVALUATION.

BUT WE ARE ALSO COORDINATING WITH, UH, ENGINEERING, TRANSPORTATION, PARKS, AND GIS D THEY'RE LOOKING STILL LOOKING AT THE NEW SIDEWALK, CONSTRUCTION NEEDS AND ENGINEERING IS STILL ADMINISTERING THOSE NEW SIDEWALK, CONSTRUCTION NEEDS, WHICH A LOT OF THOSE ARE ROUTE THE SCHOOL BASED LOCATIONS OR LOCATIONS WHERE YOU'LL SEE THE KIND OF THE COW PATH WORN, WHERE PEOPLE ARE WORKING A WALK ALREADY WALKING.

SO IT'S LOOKING TO TRY TO FILL THOSE, FILL THOSE GAPS IN, UH, THE MPA VALLEY.

UH, WE HAVE, AS WE SAY, WE HAVE 9,986 UNPAID VALLEY SEGMENTS, AND THAT'S A LITTLE OVER 94 MILES OF LANE.

AND THEN THE BAND 94 MILES OF ALLEYS, THE THREE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS THAT WAS APPROVED IN THE ELECTION WOULD FUND, UH, APPROXIMATELY $350,000 A YEAR.

AND THAT'LL, THAT'LL PAVE FOR SOME POSSIBLY 4.1 ALLEYS.

UH, THE MAP THAT WE CREATED GOING BACK TO FOUR 20, 10 OF 2014, THE NUMBER OF SEGMENTS THAT WE HAVE, THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT SEGMENTS THAT HAVE THREE REPAIR REQUESTS TO REPAIR REQUESTS, ONE REPAIR REQUEST.

AND SO, BUT THE INTERESTING THING I FOUND OUT WHEN WE WERE EVALUATING, WE WERE TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A QUICK, REAL QUICK PACKAGE OF, OF ALLEYS THAT, THAT WE COULD JUST GO OUT AND PAY, BUT NEARLY EVERY ONE OF THOSE HAS A SANITARY SEWER IN IT.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, MOST OF THOSE SEWER LINES ARE PRETTY YELLOW AND

[00:25:01]

MOST OF THEM ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE'RE CURRENTLY COORDINATING WITH THREE, THREE PROJECTS WITH A WATER DEPARTMENT TO GET UNPAVED ALLEYS PAVED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THEIR, WHERE THEY WERE ALREADY GOING TO BE REPLACING SANITARY SEWER MAIN.

THAT'S THE CELESTE VISTA ALLEY, THE CLIFF RITA ALLEY, AND THE LEWIS RANDOLPH VALLEY.

SO THEY SH THOSE SHOULD BE THERE IN THE DESIGN STAGE NOW.

SO THAT SHOULD BE, UH, GOING TO BED PROBABLY LATER THIS YEAR.

AND THEN, UH, YOU KNOW, THE GOAL HERE IS TO TAKE CARE OF, OF THOSE KNOWN REALLY DRAINAGE AND RUTTING PROBLEMS IN OUR, IN OUR OWN PAVED ALLEYS.

THAT'S OUR FOCUS INITIALLY.

AND THAT'S, I'M, I'M NOT GONNA GO ANY DETAIL HERE, BUT THIS, I JUST INCLUDED THIS FOR Y'ALL'S EDIFICATION.

THIS IS JUST THE LIST STARTING FROM 1920 OF ALL THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE COMPLETED, UH, IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, TWO YEARS.

SO, AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S A PRETTY, PRETTY LONG LIST OF STREETS.

AND THEN WHEN WE GET TO THIS PROJECT HERE, UH, THIS IS WHERE WE'RE IN OUR CURRENT CONSTRUCTION PROJECT OF THE ONES THAT WE HAVE SCHEDULED.

A LOT OF THESE FUTURE ONES IN THE ALLEY.

THERE IS A BIG ALLEY PACKAGE THAT WE JUST RECEIVED THE 90% PLANS ON.

AND SO WE SHOULD GO OUT TO BID FOR THAT IN, IN JUNE AND GET TO GET UNDER CONSTRUCTION, PROBABLY EARLY FALL THERE.

AND ALL THOSE, ALL THOSE ALLEYS ARE PART OF THAT CONSTRUCTION.

THE ONES THAT ARE LISTED AS FUTURE ARE PART OF THAT CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM.

AND THEN WE'VE GOT THE LIST OF STREETS THAT WE'VE GOT ONGOING AND, UH, THE ONES THAT WERE GOING THAT WE ARE WORKING ON, AND WE'LL BE WORKING ON THE REMAINDER OF THIS YEAR.

THIS IS OUR, UH, THESE ARE OUR REPAIR PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE ONGOING AND, AND SCHEDULED.

AND THEN THE, UH, SOME OF THE, THE ONES WHERE WE'RE CHOOSING PROJECTS, SOME OF THESE ARE OBVIOUSLY OUR OVERLAY, AND THEN WE GET INTO THE OVERLAY LIST.

AND AS YOU SAY, THERE'S BEEN PRETTY EXTENSIVE OVERLAY LIST.

THIS GOES BUTTON.

NOW THIS GRAPH RIGHT HERE GOES BACK TO OUR ORIGINAL CALCULATION OF, UM, WHERE WE, WHERE WE ARE WITH THE PCI.

WHEN WE LOOKED AT GETTING THE INCREASED FUNDING BACK IN 2013, WHILE WE WERE SEEING THE DECREASE IN, UM, IN THE, UH, PCI AND THE OCI FOR OUR STREETS, AS YOU CAN SEE IT KIND OF BOTTOMED OUT IN 2018 AND HAS, AND IT HAS CURVED BACK UP, AND YOU CAN SEE ACTUALLY WE'RE AHEAD OF, UH, THE, THE RED LINES OR THE EXISTING, THE YELLOW LINES ARE THE YELLOW ORANGE LINES.

ARE THEY WHERE THE PROJECTED, UH, OCI WAS? AND YOU CAN SEE IN 21, WE KIND OF COMPARED THOSE.

SO WE'RE TWO POINTS AHEAD OF WHERE WE PROJECTED TO BE AT THIS POINT IN TIME WHEN WE DID THIS, UH, EVALUATION BACK, UH, FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO.

SO WE FEEL BETTER.

IT'S A GOOD TREND THAT WE'RE SEEING THERE.

AND THEN HOPEFULLY THAT, THAT WE WILL HIT THESE NUMBERS THAT WE PROJECTED MAYBE A LITTLE A YEAR OR TWO EARLIER THAN WE INITIALLY PROJECTED, UH, THE ALLEY PROJECT.

AND YOU SEE THAT ONCE AGAIN, IT KIND OF BOTTOMED OUT IN 1718, ACTUALLY THE, THE ALLEYS, WE DID SEE A SLIGHT DECREASE FROM LAST YEAR THIS YEAR.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF REASONS BEHIND THAT.

ONE IS THAT PROGRAM THAT WE HAD HOPED TO GET ONLINE IS A LITTLE, LITTLE, LITTLE BEHIND WITH THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED WITH COVID STUFF.

SO IT HAD, WE HAD THOSE 13 ALLEYS OUT ON THE, OUT ON THE STREET AND COMPLETED NOW THAT IT WOULD, UH, IT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE GOTTEN, GOTTEN BACK UP TO WHERE WE ARE, BUT OUR PROJECTION FOR THE ALLEYS BASED ON THE REPAIRS VERSUS REPLACEMENT.

AND, AND, AND A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WE KIND OF SWITCHED.

WE SWITCHED MORE INTO, UH, MORE IN THE REPLACEMENT MODE, BUT I THINK SOME OF OUR INDICATIONS AND SOME OF THE FACT THAT THE PCI OF LCI DROPPED A POINT WOULD INDICATE THAT WE'RE, WE'RE GOING TO REEVALUATE AND START LOOKING AT MAYBE GETTING INTO A LITTLE MORE, MORE TOWARDS GETTING MORE EFFORTS TOWARDS THE REPAIR LINE, TRYING TO PROJECT THAT 70 LINE AND TRY TO PUSH SOME OF THOSE PROJECTS UP.

SO THE WEEKEND IMPROVE THE OVERALL OCI.

YOU KNOW, YOU TEND TO GET MORE COMPLAINTS ON THE FULL, THE NEED FOR THE FULL REBUILDS, BUT WE DO NEED TO ALSO FOCUS ON THESE, ON THOSE REPAIRS AS WELL.

THIS IS INTERESTING FACT, I SAW SOMETHING THAT WAS DISPLAYED ON THIS IN MORE RICHARDSON'S DISPLAYS ON THOUGHT, THIS WILL BE GOOD INFORMATION FOR YOU ALL TO SEE, JUST TO SEE KIND OF WHERE WE ARE, AS YOU CAN SEE THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR STREETS.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE GREEN AND THE BLUE, THAT'S SICK AT 56% OF OUR STREETS ARE 40 YEARS OLD OR OLDER.

THE, OBVIOUSLY THE, THE 18% IS THE 31 TO 40, THE 9% AS THE 21 TO 30, THE 5% IS THE, UH, UH, 11 TO 20.

AND THEN THE 3% THE ZERO TO 10.

SO EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE BEEN DOING A LOT OF WORK, WE STILL SOLVE A LOT OF STREETS THAT ARE FAIRLY OLD IN THE CITY.

AND SO WE'RE WORKING ON, UH, TRYING TO MAKE THOSE NUMBERS, MAKE THAT PIE GRAPH SHRINK AND GET MORE WHERE WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE THAT ARE, THAT ARE NEWER STREETS.

AND,

[00:30:01]

AND THEN I THINK THAT KIND OF CORRELATES HAND IN HAND WITH HOW THE PCI IS GOING.

OBVIOUSLY THE OLDEST RATES, THE AVERAGE PCR KNOWS ARE NOT GOING TO BE AS GOOD.

ALTHOUGH WE FIND A LOT OF THOSE, I GUESS, TENDED TO BE THE MORE WELL-BUILT STREETS BECAUSE THEY'VE SURVIVED 50 TO 60 YEARS WITHOUT HAVING TO NEED TO BE REPLACED YET.

AND THEN THIS IS OUR ALLEY.

THIS IS THE SAME GRAPH, LOOKING AT OUR ALLEYS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT AS, AS WE KNOW THAT WE'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, 47% OF OUR ALLIES ARE 40 YEARS OLD OR OLDER.

SO WE'RE STILL WORKING.

GARLIN WAS A CITY THAT WAS BUILT IN THE FIFTIES, SIXTIES, AND SEVENTIES.

SO WE STILL HAVE QUITE A FEW OLD STREETS THAT WE'RE WORKING THROUGH TO DO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF.

UM, AND THIS IS A BREAKDOWN OF THE FI THE PAVEMENT OCI BY OUR FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION.

WE ARE GETTING CLOSE TO GETTING A 90 WRITING ON OUR ARTERIAL STREETS.

OUR COLLECTORS ARE JUST THE BELOW 80 DRILLS OR 82.

THE RESIDENTIALS ARE STILL AT 76 AND THEN THE ALLEYS WERE AT 70.

SO WE'LL SEE.

I MEAN, WE'LL SEE THAT WE HAVE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO WORKING ON ARTERIALS AND TRYING TO KEEP OUR ARTERIALS.

AND THEN THE FACT IS WHEN YOU DO AN ARTERIAL REPAIR WITHIN FIVE TO SEVEN YEARS, YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO NEED TO COME BACK AND DO SOME MORE WORK ON THAT ARTERIAL, JUST TO KIND OF GET THE STUFF THAT FAILS, UH, SINCE YOU'VE DONE YOUR REPAIR WORK.

BUT IF YOU CONTINUE TO GO BACK TO YOUR ARTERIALS, YOU'LL JUST DO HAVING TO DO REPAIRS.

THEN YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO END UP HAVING TO DO RECONSTRUCTION PROJECTS.

AND THIS IS JUST SOME MAPS OF THE HIGHLIGHTING.

SOME OF THE MAJOR PROJECTS WE DID.

WE DID, WE COMPLETED A REPAIR PROJECT ON BOB TOWN ROAD.

UH, FIRST STREET, WE HAVE, WE HAVE DONE VARIOUS SECTIONS.

YOU'LL SEE THAT SECTION BETWEEN MILLER AND ARMSTRONG HAS NOT BEEN DONE, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE WE PULLED OFF AND DIDN'T DO THAT BECAUSE THERE IS A, A, A WATER PROJECT, A SANITARY, SEWER REPLACEMENT AND WATER REPLACEMENT PROJECT IN THAT STREET THAT WILL, UH, COMMENCE SHORTLY.

I THINK THEY'VE ALREADY STARTED DOING A LITTLE BIT OF THE PRELIMINARY WORK FOR THAT, UH, FOREST LANE.

WE JUST COMPLETED THAT PROJECT NOW LAST YEAR.

SO WE'VE GONE ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE CITY LIMITS FROM, UH, FROM GARLAND ROAD AND TAKING CARE OF A LOT OF STUFF.

A LOT OF FAILED AREAS ON THAT, IN THAT, ON THAT STREET, NORTH GARLAND, WE WORKED ON RECENTLY, THAT'S THE AREA BETWEEN RAPAHOE AND, AND THEY'LL LINE, UH, ROSEDALE ROAD DOWN THERE, SOUTH AUTHORITY, UH, DUCK CREEK ROAD IS, ARE, WE'VE ACTUALLY DONE OUR LEVEL LIFTING THROUGH THAT, AND WE'VE DONE THE LIFTING.

THEN WHAT WE DO ON A LOT OF ARTERIAL STREETS IS WE'LL GO THROUGH AND SEND OUR, UM, LEVEL LIFTING CONTRACTOR THROUGH, AND WE'LL LIFT THE SLABS THAT WE CAN LIFT.

AND THEN WE'LL COME BACK AND STABILIZE THOSE SLABS, EVEN STABILIZE SOME OF THE FAILED ONES, AND THEN WE'LL COME BACK AND REPLACE THE SLABS AFTERWARDS.

SO THAT ONCE WE DO BOTH OF THOSE PROCESSES, THEN WE'VE GOT WE'RE IN A PRETTY GOOD SHAPE WITH THE CONDITION OF THOSE ROADWAYS MILLER ROAD.

THERE ARE VARIOUS PROJECTS GOING ON.

WE'RE CURRENTLY WORKING BETWEEN FIRST AND CENTERVILLE.

UH, WE RECENTLY COMPLETED FROM CENTERVILLE TO THE CITY LIMITS, UH, THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENTS WORKING ON THAT SECTION BETWEEN GLENBROOK AND SATURN.

AND I THINK THERE ARE SOME REPAIRS, UTILITY REPAIRS ALSO GOING THAT SOME PAVEMENT REPAIRS WILL TAKE PLACE WEST OF GARLAND, NOT ON AVENUE.

UM, SOME THEM WE'VE DONE.

WE HAVE DONE SOME REPAIRS.

WE'RE ACTUALLY ACTUALLY HOLDING OFF ON CENTER WHEN WE STARTED, DID A LITTLE WORK, BUT WE, WE HAVE NOW PULLED OFF IN OUR, HOLDING OFF UNTIL, UH, DG AND O IS GETTING READY TO DO A REPAIR IN THE MIDDLE OF MAY ON THEIR TRACK.

THEY ARE JUST NORTH OF THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT.

SO WE'RE GONNA WET SINCE THAT'S GOING TO EVOLVE OVER A FEW DAYS, IT'S GOING TO INVOLVE NOT TIME WORK AND SOME LANE CLOSURES AND DIVERTING TRAFFIC TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROADWAY.

SO WE'VE DECIDED NOT TO, NOT ALL OF OUR CONSTRUCTION IN THERE UNTIL THEY FINISH, BUT THEY'LL GET THEIR WORK DONE OVER ABOUT A WEEK.

SO ONCE THEY FINISHED THEIR WORK, WE'LL GET BACK IN ON CENTERVILLE ROAD.

EVERY DAY IS A PROJECT THAT WE HAVE SCHEDULED IN THE FUTURE OF THE ONE WAY PAYER, UM, AVENUE B IS THE STATE'S OFFICE OF STATE HIGHWAY AVENUE.

B IS THE STATE'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN.

AND THEN AVENUE D IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN.

AND THIS IS A LIST OF SOME PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE ALSO NOT ONLY IN ADDITION TO THE PROJECTS WE'VE DONE, WHERE WE'VE SHARED FUNDING WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS, UH, SOME PROJECTS THAT ARE GOING TO GLEN BROOK DRIVE, SOUTH OF CARROLL DRIVE.

IT'S BEEN ORDERED BY COUNCIL.

IT'S GETTING READY TO START CONSTRUCTION SOON, UH, MILLER ROAD AVENUE EIGHTH, AND THAT STREET, WHICH IS RIGHT THERE AT THE PARK ROAD IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

JERELL, UH, ROAD IS, IS ORDERED BY COUNCIL MAY FIELD ROAD, I THINK IS I THINK, I BELIEVE IT'S SCHEDULED FOR AWARD TOMORROW AT CALCIMINE.

SO THESE ARE PROJECTS WHERE WE HAVE SHARED FUNDS WITH ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE MANAGING THEM.

AND WE'RE KIND OF, UH, WHETHER THEY'RE DOING WATER AND SEWER

[00:35:01]

PLACEMENTS AND WE'VE, WE'VE, WE'RE WORKING ON THAT.

THE GUILFORD PEMBROKE SYLVAN, THAT IS A, THAT'S A PROJECT WHERE THE WATER DEPARTMENT'S REPLACING THEIR WAN AND THAT CHANNEL IN THAT DRAINAGE CHANNEL BEHIND KINGSBRIDGE.

AND SO WE'RE GETTING FOUR, ACTUALLY FIVE ALLEYS RECONSTRUCTED AS PART OF THAT PROJECT.

AND THEN FIELD KNOWS ACTUALLY A PROJECT THAT WAS ENGINEERING WAS WORKING ON.

WHEN I, I ACTUALLY HIRED MY NEW SENIOR CIVIL ENGINEER OUT OF ENGINEERING DEPARTMENTS.

HE BROUGHT THAT PROJECT WITH HIM, BUT HE'S WORKING ON IT.

AND THEN THE BALLENGER BENITA IS A SANITARY SEWER PROJECT THAT WE'RE ALSO GOING TO PARTICIPATE WITH, INCLUDING PAYMENTS.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'VE, WE'VE GOT BETWEEN THE DESIGN COST OF NEARLY 900,000 IN THE CONSTRUCTION COST AND ESTIMATES OF NEARLY 10 MILLION.

SO WE'VE GOT ANOTHER $11 MILLION THAT WE HAVE SPENT OUTSIDE OF OUR PROJECTS, UH, SHARING FUNDS WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS THAT ARE WORKING ON BETTER MANAGING PROJECTS.

THIS IS A LIST OF OUR MAJOR PROJECTS THAT ARE GOING ON.

WE'RE WORKING ON ARTERIAL ROADWAY, WE'RE WORKING, WE'VE GOT CONTRACTS WITH A RESIDENTIAL ROADWAY.

AS I MENTIONED, WE HAD AN ALLEY REPAIR PROJECT THAT WE DID ONE, WE DID ONE AND WE DID AN, A RENEWAL WITH IT.

BUT THEN WE DECIDED TO SPEND SOME OF THAT MONEY ON, ON ALLEY RECONSTRUCTION.

SO WE DIDN'T RENEW THAT, BUT WHERE WE'RE LIKE, SAY WE WILL EVALUATE THE NEED FOR THAT FUTURE, UH, REINSTATED THAT PROGRAM IN THE FUTURE.

UH, SOME MAJOR PROJECTS WE'D DONE VALLEY MILLS DRIVE CLUB CREEK BOULEVARD, NORTH GATE SHERRY'S PROJECT MARTINDALE BLUE CREEK.

SO, AND THEN WE'VE GOT SEVERAL, UM, ALLI REPLACEMENT PROJECTS THAT WE'VE GOTTEN THAT WE'VE JUST FINISHED RECENTLY.

UH, WE, THIS, THIS SHEET IS A LIST OF 11 STREETS WHERE THE WATER DEPARTMENT WAS GOING TO DO WATER LINES.

AND WE HAVE, WE BASICALLY TOOK OVER THE, TO GO WITH THE ZINE, TOOK OVER THE CONSTRUCTION AND ALL THOSE PROJECTS ARE COMPLETED.

EXCEPT FOR THAT PHASE TWO, WE ACTUALLY DID PHASE ONE INTO DID PHASE THREE.

AND PHASE TWO IS NEARLY UNDER IS, IS PROBABLY WILL BE CONSTRUCT FINISHED CONSTRUCTION IN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO.

THEY ARE WELL ON THEIR WAY TO, TO BEING COMPLETED.

UM, JUST OF ANOTHER LIST OF MORE OF THE PROJECTS THERE, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE COMPLETED, UM, AS MENTIONED THE, THE LAST MILE PROJECT, THE WAY WE'RE AWARDING ALL OF THESE PROJECTS WITH THE, UH, WITH THE CONSTRUCTION IN RENEWALS WHERE WE'RE GETTING A LOT OF THAT LAST MILE WAS A MILLION AND A HALF DOLLAR PROJECT.

AS WE CAN SAY, WE'VE ALREADY DONE ONE, WE'VE ALREADY DONE A ONE MAIN AND A HALF DOLLAR PROJECT, AND WE'VE GOT THE FIRST RENEWAL THERE.

SO WE'VE GOT AN ADDITIONAL, I MAY, AS WE SAY, WE SPENT A MILLION AND A HALF, A LITTLE OVER A MILLION AND A HALF ON THAT PROJECT TONIGHT.

UH, THE PAYMENT LIFTING SERVICES, WE ACTUALLY COMPLETED THAT ONE CONTRACT WAS A MILLION DOLLAR A YEAR CONTRACT.

WE HAD FOUR RENEWALS.

AND SO, UM, WE ACTUALLY IM UH, IMPLEMENTED A SECOND ON TRACT ON THE, ON THE HEELS OF THAT ONE, THAT WE INCREASED THE AMOUNT OF THAT TO $2 MILLION A YEAR, SO THAT WE CAN REALLY FOCUS ON LIFTING THOSE PAYMENTS ON THOSE ARTERIAL STREETS.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY PIGGYBACKED ON DFW AIRPORT ON THAT PROJECT.

SO WE JUST STARTED THAT ONE.

SO THE CONTRACTORS WORKED ON THE ORIGINAL ONE, BUT WE WILL HAVE FOUR RENEWALS ON THAT.

SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO DO $10 MILLION WORTH OF WORK ON THAT.

THE ARTERIAL PAVEMENT REQUIREMENTS CONTRACT.

THAT'S A CONTRACT THAT THAT'S CURRENTLY, THEY, THEY WORKED ON YALE.

THEY'RE CURRENTLY, THIS IS THE CONTRACTORS WORK ON FIRST STREET RIGHT NOW.

SO HE'S, UH, AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO, WHEN HE FINISHES FIRST STREET, WE'RE GOING TO SEND HIM TO NORTH GARLAND.

HE'S GOING TO WORK NORTH CARLIN BETWEEN, I THINK I BLAME.

I'VE ALREADY SENT THAT NOTICE AROUND THE ONE WITH DARLING BETWEEN, UH, AVENUE BAY AND, UH, BUCKINGHAM.

UH, HERE'S A PROJECT.

I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE A LOT OF INTEREST IN IS OUR, IS OUR RAILROAD CROSSING IMPROVEMENT PROJECT.

UM, THE, UH, WE DID SEVEN.

WE INITIALLY DID SEVEN, UH, RAILROAD CROSSINGS THAT WE DID AT A DESIGN.

AND WE HAVE SINCE ADDED THE, UH, THE JUPITER ROAD PROJECT DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND.

UH, BUT THE FIRST, THE FIRST STREET SPUR LINE THAT WORKS UNDER CONSTRUCTION MAY HAVE ALREADY BEEN EITHER.

THAT'S WHERE WE WERE MOVING THE ASPHALT PAVEMENT AND PUTTING, UH, PUTTING CONCRETE PIPE AND WHERE WE HAD PULLED UP SPUR LINE, THE BUCKINGHAM ROAD AT 78.

THAT'S THE KCS LINE.

UM, THE AGREEMENT IS IN PLACE.

THEY ARE ORDERING THEIR MATERIALS BECAUSE THAT ONE IS, HAS THE PROXIMITY TO THE BUS BARN THERE FOR GIS D AND IT, A LOT OF THEIR BUSES FOLLOW THAT ROUTE.

AND OUT OF THERE, WE'RE GOING TO WAIT UNTIL AFTER SCHOOL LETS OUT FOR THE SUMMER BEFORE WE START THAT PROJECT.

SO LET'S SAY THAT PROJECT SHOULD START IN JUNE.

AND THEN THE OTHER ONES, UH, THE, UH, THE ONES THAT ARE UNDER DESIGN REVIEW BY DG AND O AND KCS, THE MILLER ROAD PROJECT IS UNDER DESIGN.

AND THEN THE JUPITER ROAD IS UNDER DESIGN.

THAT ONE, WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO FAST TRACK AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

CAUSE THAT ONE, I JUST SAW SOME EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE ON THAT ONE.

I'M TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN THE PROJECT AND GET THE DESIGN TO KEEP THE DESIGN SPEED

[00:40:01]

UP ON THAT ROADWAY.

BUT I WILL SAY THIS IN OUR INITIAL CORRESPONDENCE WITH DG ANO THEY ARE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT REPAIRING A LOT OF THESE LOCATIONS.

MY, MY, UH, ENGINEER WAS SAID HE WAS JUST, HE COULD JUST TELL THE EXCITEMENT OF THEIR VOICE.

HE SAID, THEY'RE NOT USED TO HAVING CITIES THAT ARE WANTING TO SHARE WITH THEM AND START WORKING ON REPLACING A LOT OF THESE, UH, DAMAGED, UH, CROSSINGS AND, AND LET THEM PARTICIPATE WITH THEM IN THE, IN THE RE REPAIR PROJECTS.

BUT THIS IS KIND OF A LIST OF WHAT WE'RE SEEING BASED ON OUR FUNDING TO, TO GET TO THOSE NUMBERS THAT WE PROJECTED OUT THERE, THE KIND OF NUMB NUMBER OF PROJECTS THAT WE WILL DO IN EACH OF THE, UH, SUCCEEDING YEARS TO BE ABLE TO GET THOSE NUMBERS TO THE POINT, THOSE, THE OCI NUMBERS TO WHERE WE WANT TO GET THEM.

WELL, THAT, THAT'S A, THAT'S MY PRESENTATION.

I WILL ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT ME TO LEAVE IT UP.

YOU WANT ME TO STOP SHARING THE SCREEN? OH, LET'S GO AHEAD AND STOP SHARING, BUT BE PREPARED TO GO BACK TO, OKAY.

I FIGURED IT MIGHT BE SOME QUESTIONS HONESTLY, HERE.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TIM MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

AND I'LL STAY IT.

I DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE A QUESTION.

I JUST WANTED TO COMPLIMENT YOU, UM, ON SEVERAL THINGS.

UM, I WAS VERY EXCITED TO HEAR THAT THE, UH, DEMAND FOR POTHOLE REPAIRS HAS GREATLY DECLINED.

I MEAN, THAT'S ONE OF THOSE MARKERS OF SUCCESS.

HOW EXCITING? UM, WELL, A YEAR AND A HALF, ONE OF MY TOWN HALL, I ACTUALLY HAD A, I ACTUALLY HAD CUPCAKES MADE THAT HAD LITTLE ORANGE CONES AND, AND DEPTHS.

IT WERE POTHOLE, UH, THINGS BECAUSE I WAS GETTING SO MANY COMPLAINTS THAT YOU WERE FILLING AS FAST AS YOU COULD, BUT WELL DONE ON THAT AND THE MEDIA, THE VIDEOS AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE PUTTING OUT, THOSE ARE SO HELPFUL.

SO BEING ABLE TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WHEN THEY'VE GOT, UM, OVERLAYS OR ANY KIND OF ROADS WORK, HEADING THEIR WAY FOR THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS, BEING ABLE TO SHARE THOSE VIDEOS WITH THEM, IT HAS, UM, GREATLY REDUCED THE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS AND, AND EVEN COMPLAINTS THAT I'VE GOTTEN.

SO, UM, WOW.

YOU'RE DOING GREAT.

REALLY.

APPRECIATE IT.

KEEP IT UP.

THAT'S IT.

THANK YOU.

THERE ANY ADDITIONAL COMPLIMENTS FOR MR. OLIVER, WE'LL TAKE OUR, WE CAN GET HER MCNEIL.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MR. OLIVER, JUST A QUICK QUESTION, AND KIND OF PIGGYBACKING ON COUNCIL LADY, UM, UH, MORRISONS ARE CALLING IN REGARDING THE VIDEOS, UH, IN REGARDS TO BULK PICKUP WHEN YOU'RE DOING, WHEN YOU'RE DOING SOME OF THE RESIDENTIAL AREA.

CAN YOU JUST BRIEFLY DESCRIBE THAT FOR SOMEONE THAT MAY BE LISTENING TODAY? UH, BECAUSE AGAIN, YOU GUYS ARE DOING AN AWESOME JOB, BUT JUST HAD A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FROM A COUPLE OF RESIDENTS REGARDING BOOK PICKUP WHEN YOU'RE DOING CONSTRUCTION.

WELL, WE TRY TO WORK WITH, UH, WE WORK WITH URIEL AND EWS ON OBVIOUSLY WHEN, WHEN STREET'S COMPLETELY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, WE'LL WORK WITH THEM TO WHEEL CARTS AND STUFF BACK, UM, I GUESS, AND, AND WE TRY TO AS BEST WE CAN, BUT A LOT OF TIMES IT'S, IT'S, IT'S DIFFICULT TO DO BULK PICKUP.

IF THE STREETS COMPLETELY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, IF WE'RE DOING REPAIRS, WE USUALLY THE TRASH TRUCKS WILL, WE'LL STILL BE ABLE TO BULK PICKUP TRUCKS.

WE'LL STILL BE ABLE TO COME DOWN THOSE STREETS WHEN IT'S JUST REPAIRS, BUT DURING CONSTRUCTION, UM, THERE'S AT POINTS IN TIME WHEN WE GET WHERE WE GET THE, YOU KNOW, THE BASE DOWN, THEN THEY CAN GET BACK IN THERE.

BUT FOR THE MOST PART WE'RE TRYING TO, WE'RE REALLY JUST TRIED TO FOCUS MORE ON THE INDIVIDUAL PICKUP.

AND OFTENTIMES AREN'T ON THOSE TRASH DAYS THAT ARE AS WE'LL END UP WHEELING THE CART, YOU KNOW, BILL STILL PUT THEM OUT FRONT AND WE'LL END UP WHEELING THE CARTS, UH, TO THE, UH, TO THE END OF THE BLOCKS SO THAT THE TRASH TRUCKS CAN, CAN EMPTY THOSE CARS.

AND THEN WHAT WE HAVE BEEN BACK, UH, THE BULK PICKUP IS, IS, IS TRICKY AT TIMES, BUT, UH, I KNOW WE TRY TO WORK WITH EWS AS MUCH AS WE CAN.

UM, BUT I DON'T, I I'M TRYING TO THINK IN OUR LETTER, IF WE, IF WE SPECIFICALLY TALK ABOUT TRASH PICKUP AND, AND YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE OUT FRONT TO STILL KEEP IT OUT FRONT, BUT, AND THEN, AND THEN WHEN WE WORK ON THAT, WE'LL RECONSTRUCT AN ALLEYS, THEN WE'LL OFTEN HAVE TO DIRECT THEM TO, TO LEAVE IT OUT FRONT RATHER THAN IN THE BACK.

BUT, UM, THAT'S SOMETHING I'LL, I'LL, I'LL, I'LL, I'LL LOOK WITHOUT CHECK WITH OUR GUYS ON WHAT EFFORT WE MAKING ON THE BULK TRASH, CAUSE I'M NOT, I'M NOT SURE THAT WE, WE HAVE A SPECIFIC, I KNOW WE HAVE SPECIFIC INFORMATION REGARDING TRASH PICKUP, BUT I'M NOT SURE IF WE HAVE SPECIFIC INFORMATION REGARDING THE TRAP BULK TREK, DRUG, BULK TRASH PICKUP IN THE LETTERS THAT WE SEND OUT TO THE RESIDENTS.

GREAT, GREAT.

AND JUST A LITTLE BIT THAT RESIDENT NATION

[00:45:01]

DOES OCCUR AND, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY THERE'S ALWAYS OPPORTUNITY FOR US JUST TO IMPROVE THAT, BUT, BUT, BUT THANK YOU FOR SHARING THE FACT THAT THAT COORDINATION DOES OCCUR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR PRO TEM NICKERSON.

UH, THANK YOU, SIR.

UM, STEVE, I JUST WANTED TO CHIME IN THAT, UH, OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS, WE'VE DONE A LOT OF IMPROVEMENT HERE IN THE SOUTH GARLAND AREA AND I'LL LET GO OF THE THING ON THE POTHOLES TOO.

I SURPRISINGLY, I CAN'T REMEMBER HERE HOW I HAVEN'T, I JUST HAVE NOT HAD A POTHOLE CALL AND SO LONG.

I THOUGHT WE HAD THEM ALL FIXED, SO THAT'S GREAT.

UM, BUT, BUT MORE THAN THAT, JUST THE GENERAL WAY YOU PRESENT YOUR DATA AND KEEP US INFORMED ALONG WITH THE CITIZENRY HAS BEEN EXEMPLARY AND, UM, YOU DO A GOOD WORK AND YOUR FOLLOWUP IS GOOD.

AND, AND, UH, THE ONLY, THE ONLY OTHER ITEM WOULD BE THAT YOU ALSO GOT, UH, YOU'RE GETTING AROUND TO FIXING MY LAST LITTLE, LITTLE PROBLEM DOWN THERE ON LIONS ROAD WITH THAT GUARD RAIL, AND WHICH HAS BEEN, UH, A BAD TURN THERE ANYWAY FOR FOLKS.

AND I KNOW SOME OF THE CITIZENS DOWN THERE WERE REALLY APPRECIATE THAT AS WELL.

SO THANK YOU FOR A BEGINNING TO GET ON THAT TOO.

UH, AND ANYWAY, I JUST WANT TO SAY THANKS A LOT FOR ALL THE WORK YOU'VE DONE, STEVE.

YEAH.

WE HAD HOPED TO START THAT GUARDRAIL.

I THINK I EXPLAINED THAT LATER ON HOW MANY HELL WE WENT ROUND AND ROUND TRYING TO GET THE APPROPRIATE GUARD RAIL, BUT I DO APPRECIATE THE COMPLIMENTS.

I THINK MOST OF THE, LIKE I SAY, OF THE COMPLIMENTS ARE DUE TO THE FACT THAT I'M BLESSED WITH AN EXTREMELY GOOD STAFF AND IT'S EASY TO REPORT.

GOOD.

THE GOOD THINGS THAT THEY DO.

YOU BET.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, SIR.

I NEED ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR MR. OLIVER.

I DON'T SEE ANY AND JUST TO THE FOLKS ON THE LIONS ROAD, UH, WE HAD SOME DELAYS, UH, WE ORDERED CURVED PIECES, BUT THEY SENT US STRAIGHT PIECES.

SO WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF AN ISSUE THERE THAT WE WERE ALL FOLLOWING UP ON.

SO, AND THEN THEY SENT US CURVED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

WELL, YOU KNOW, PROCESS OF ELIMINATION, I GUESS WE'LL FINALLY GET THE RIGHT PIECES.

BUT AS I NOTED IN THERE THAT THAT REPRESENTATIVE NO LONGER WORKS FOR THE GUARD RAIL COMPANY.

THAT'S PROBABLY, UH, AS PROBABLY A GOOD MOVE.

PROBABLY A GOOD MOVE.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL THANK YOU, SIR.

AND ACTUALLY I APPRECIATE THAT THE, YOU KNOW, THE GRAPH, UH, WITH THE PAVEMENT AGE, I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY WHEN YOU SEE THE, WHEN YOU SEE THE PAPER AND AGE ACROSS THE CITY, IT MAKES SENSE.

UM, AS YOU EXPLAINED, I MEAN, AND, AND SO, BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT I'VE EVER, EVER THOUGHT OF IT IN THAT, IN THAT, YOU KNOW, IN, IN THOSE AGE CATEGORIES.

SO ANYWAY, THANK YOU MR. ALBERT.

GOOD WORK.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM

[4C. Windsurf Bay Park]

FOUR C WIND SURF BAY PARK.

MR. HESTER.

YES, SIR.

GOOD EVENING.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

I'LL SHARE MY SCREEN AS WELL.

EVERYBODY ABLE TO SEE THAT.

OKAY.

YES, SIR.

FOR STARTERS, COUNCILMAN, AND I APPRECIATE YOUR BACKGROUND VERY TIMELY FOR MORE INFORMATION, GO TO VISIT GARLAND, TX.COM.

UM, ALL RIGHT, SO LET'S TALK ABOUT WINDSURF BAY, UH, COUNCIL'S DIRECTION.

UH, WE CAME BACK WITH A, UH, UH, A QUICK GAME PLAN CENTERED AROUND CONTROLLING THE ACCESS TO THE PARK IN LIEU OF THE LAST DISCUSSION REGARDING FENCING THE SHORELINE.

UH, SO I'LL START OUT WITH JUST A LITTLE BRIEF STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE, SO WE CAN ALL GET ON THE SAME PAGE FOR THE PAST AND HOW WE KINDA GOT HERE.

UH, THIS PARCEL IS ABOUT 42 ACRES.

IT WAS ACQUIRED AROUND 1989.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S KIND OF, UM, THESE LITTLE BUMP OUT SPACES ALONG HERE, WE'RE AT ABOUT 180 ALL WEATHER PARKING SPOTS.

WE PARTNERED WITH STREET DEPARTMENT AND PROVIDING GRAVEL IN HERE TO KIND OF REDUCE THE POTENTIAL FOR TURNING INTO A MUD HOLE.

UH, AFTER, AFTER WEATHER EVENTS, A QUICK VIDEO, I WON'T SHOW THE WHOLE THING, BUT, UM, THIS WAS DONE SOME TIME AGO THAT JULY 4TH IN 2016, SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS.

AND REMEMBER THIS THERE'S A SIMILAR VIDEO FROM, UH, UH, MEMORIAL DAY EVENT.

THE FOLLOWING YEAR, I BELIEVE.

UM, JUST KIND OF GIVES YOU A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE.

UM, ON ONE OF THESE MAJOR HOLIDAYS THAT KIND OF PRECIPITATED THE NEED FOR, UM, CAPPING THE PARTICIPATION AT 2,500 PEOPLE, UH, AS WELL AS, UM, CONTROLLING THE ACCESS WITH PARKS AND POLICE STAFF.

HERE'S A SHOT OF KIND OF THE TYPICAL ACTIVITY ON THE SHORELINE ON THE HEAVY USE AND SCROLL DOWN AND SEE, SEE THE CROWDS GATHERED UP RIGHT UP AGAINST THE SHORELINE.

UM,

[00:50:01]

I BELIEVE RIGHT ABOUT HERE, WE'LL SEE A POPULAR ACCESS, UH, MEANS OF, UH, A LADDER BROUGHT TO THE PARTY.

UM, SO THAT'S A LOT OF ACTIVITY, SO HERE'S SOME AGAIN, BRIEF HISTORY AND YOU CAN SEE OVER TIME, THE, UH, THE PARTICIPATION IS REALLY RATCHETED UP AT THESE MAJOR HOLIDAYS MEMORIAL DAY, JULY 4TH, LABOR DAY, UM, REALLY PEAKING AROUND 20, SEEING 8,000 PEOPLE WHICH REALLY PRECIPITATED IN 2019 PUT TOGETHER, UH, POLICE AND PARKS, UH, PLAN TO CAP IT AT 2,500 PEOPLE.

UH, THEN SHORTLY AFTER THAT, PRIOR TO THE CLOSING OF IT, THROUGH THE COVID CHALLENGES, UH, WE REALLY STARTED SEEING IS EVERYBODY MAY RECALL, NO, UH, NON-MAJOR HOLIDAY WEEKENDS QUICKLY.

WE'RE BECOMING, UH, IN THAT, UH, 2,500 PEOPLE CATEGORY AND REALLY OVERWHELMING THE WEEKEND STAFF, BOTH FOR PARKS, UH, AND POLICE CALLS.

AND THEN ONCE THAT PLAN WAS IMPLEMENTED, THIS IS KIND OF HOW QUICKLY THINGS WOULD FILL UP.

SO, UH, ON THAT SUNDAY, MAY 26TH, BY THE TIME 2:00 PM ROLLED AROUND, WE WERE CAPPED ON MONDAY.

WE WERE CAPTIVE AT 1:00 PM AT 2,500.

AND AGAIN, TURNING NEARLY 3000 PEOPLE AWAY AFTER THAT POINT.

AND YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE QUEUE HERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH THAT PLAN.

UH, IT WAS A REDIRECTION OF QUITE A BIT OF RESOURCES, UH, WITH THE MPOS, UH, WORKING THROUGHOUT THOSE WEEKENDS EACH DAY AND PULLING SOMETHING FROM THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD PROGRAM, ADDING SIGNAGE INDICATING DEPART CLOSURE WAS AT CAPACITY.

SO FOLKS KNEW TO TURN AROUND IN ADVANCE AND THEN OBVIOUSLY TRASH AND BATHROOM DUTY OBVIOUSLY WENT UP ORDINANCE WAS ALSO PUT IN PLACE THAT ALLOWED, UH, UH, DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND THE POLICE CHIEF TO CONFER.

AND UPON REACHING THAT NUMBER, BE ABLE TO CLOSE THE PARK FOR FURTHER VISITS, JUST A QUICK, UH, SNAPSHOT OF KIND OF WHERE WE ARE NOW.

THIS IS, THIS IS CURRENT CONDITIONS.

SO THIS IS KIND OF THE GRAVEL, UH, PARKING AREA THAT, UM, IS, IS IN PLACE NOW TO KIND OF CONTAIN THE DAMAGE DUE TO WEATHER EVENTS.

A LOT OF THIS IS C BOLLARDS, KIND OF AN ATTEMPT TO CONTAIN FOLKS WITH WHERE WE WOULD LIKE THEM TO STAY ON THE PAVING.

BUT YOU CAN SEE IN THIS PICTURE ON THE RIGHT, THEY DON'T ALWAYS STAY WHERE WE ASK THEM TO.

AND WE FIND FREQUENTLY THAT THEY PULL THE BOLLARDS OUT WHEN THEY'RE FULL AND THEY PULL THEM OUT AND THEN JUST DRIVE OUT INTO THE OPEN FIELD, UM, WHATEVER THEY FEEL LIKE.

AGAIN, THIS IS KIND OF THE QUOTE UNQUOTE BEACH AREA.

YOU CAN SEE QUITE A BIT OF EROSION, SOME OF IT'S STEEPER THAN OTHERS AS YOU KIND OF GO DOWN, UH, BACK TO THE SOUTH, IT GETS A LITTLE STEEPER.

SO WE DID SOME RESEARCH, UH, LOOKED AT OTHER CITIES, AND I KNOW SOME NAMES OF THESE YOU'LL BE FAMILIAR WITH MANY OF YOU HAVE PROBABLY BEEN TO SOME OF THESE.

AND SO JUST AS A BY COMPARISON, WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CONTROLLING ACCESS TO A PARK LIKE THIS, THIS IS A COUPLE OF EASY EXAMPLES TO REFER TO BOTH METAMOUR AND GRAPEVINE AND LYNN CREEK AND GRAND PRAIRIE CONTINUE TO PULL SOME OF THESE OTHER FACILITIES AND, AND I'LL GO KIND OF BRIEFLY THROUGH THEM.

YOU'LL SEE.

UM, ON THE FAR RIGHT-HAND SIDE, IT'S WORTH NOTING THE LAKE AUTHORITY, THE COMMONALITY FOR THESE OTHER LAKESIDE PARKS IS THAT THEY ARE ON CORPS OF ENGINEER WATER.

WE ARE ON CITY OF DALLAS WATER, THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE BEING THAT BEING, UM, FEDERALLY MANDATED TO PROVIDE RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, THEY PARTNER BY AGREEMENT WITH THESE ADJACENT CITIES TO PROVIDE RECREATION ON THE WATER CITY OF DALLAS.

UM, THEIR PRIMARY CONCERN IS, IS MAINTAINING WATER QUALITY AND WATER SUPPLY.

UH, SO JUST KIND OF, UH, A SNAPSHOT OF THE SURVEY OF THESE, OF THESE OTHER CITIES, YOU'LL SEE THEY CHARGE A FEE PER CAR OR SOME $5 A CAR, SOME AT 10, SOME AT 15, SOME WILL HAVE AN ADDITIONAL HOLIDAY RATE, MEANING MAJOR HOLIDAYS, LABOR DAY, MEMORIAL DAY, JULY 4TH, THEIR FEE GOES UP TO 20 IN SOME CASES, 25.

UM, MOST OF THEM DO NOT OFFER A RESIDENT, RIGHT? IT'S A FLAT FEE FOR ALL CARS.

UM, MOST OF THEM HAVE A BOAT RAMP, AS YOU CAN SEE, AND THEN YOU CAN ALSO NOTICE THAT SINCE THEY ARE KIND OF GEARED FOR RECREATIONAL USE, THEY HAVE, THEY ARE DESIGNED FOR A MUCH LARGER CAPACITY OF CARS, AND THESE ARE THE NUMBERS THEY TELL US THAT THEY WILL SEE KIND OF ON A PEAK HOLIDAY TIME.

UH, JUST VERY BRIEFLY AGAIN, FOR DISCUSSION, JUST STARTING THE DISCUSSION.

UM, WE FELT LIKE, WELL, MAYBE THE FEE PER NON-RESIDENT CAR WOULD BE $10 ON A STANDARD WEEKEND HOLIDAY RATE, MAYBE HAVE 20, UH, AND PER COUNCIL'S RECOMMENDATION.

UH, LOOKING AT, UH, THE GARLAND RESIDENTS ARE FREE.

UM, THIS IS KIND OF A SNAPSHOT OF, I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE A LITTLE TRICKY TO SEE, BUT I'VE GOT SOME ZOOMED IN THAT WE'RE PROPOSING.

IF WE WERE TO ADD AN ENTRY GATED

[00:55:01]

CONTROL FEATURE, THIS RED AREA HERE, WE WE'D NEED TO CONTROL ACCESS, UM, AND KEEP THEM ON THE ROAD.

SO WHAT THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE IS MIGHT BE ABLE TO ZOOM IN.

WE WOULD PROPOSE THAT SOMEWHERE IN THIS AREA, THERE WOULD BE A, UH, A CLIMATE CONTROL TICKET, BOOTH, AND RESTROOM FOR THE STAFF ONLY STAFF PARKING.

THIS WOULD BE LIKELY, UH, MAYBE A THREE FOOT TALL STEEL PIPE, UH, FENCE TYPE THING THAT CONTAINS TRAFFIC THAT WAY.

WHEN YOU REACH CAPACITY, YOU'RE FULL, THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TURN AROUND AND GO BACK OUT.

THAT TAKES THE KIOSK FARTHER DOWN INTO THE PARK, AND HOPEFULLY CAN REDUCE A LITTLE BIT OF THE IMPACT COMING INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, THE EXISTING, THIS IS THE EXISTING AREA.

THERE'S AGAIN, LESS THAN 200, UH, WEATHERPROOF PARKING SPACES IN THE, IN THE PARK RIGHT NOW, IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE GOAL OF MAYBE CAPPING IT AT APPROXIMATELY 2,500 PEOPLE THAT EQUATES TO AROUND 500 CARS.

SO WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS A, IS A SCHEMATIC OF HOW WE WOULD SQUEEZE IN TO SCALE ADDITIONAL PARKING TO GET US TO 500 FROM PARKING SPACES.

SO THAT'S WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE, KINDA ZOOMED IN.

SO AGAIN, WE WOULD HAVE, AND THIS IS NOT EXACT, BUT WE WOULD HAVE SOME TYPE OF TICKET BOOTH, A VERY SMALL FOOTPRINT, UM, IN A STAFF ONLY RESTROOM, COUPLE OF GATES THAT WE COULD
