GOOD MORNING.

[00:00:03]

RECORDING IN PROGRESS.

GOOD MORNING IT IS SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, EXCUSE ME, SATURDAY, JANUARY 22ND, 2022

[1. Overview of 2022 Proposed CIP and CIP Document Orientation]

AND WE ARE HERE FOR A SPECIAL MEETING.

THIS IS [INAUDIBLE].

THIS IS FOR OUR OVERVIEW AND REVIEW OF DEPARTMENT REQUESTS FOR OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS.

AND I BELIEVE MR. BRADFORD, YOU'RE GOING TO START US OFF.

OH, I SHOULD MENTION WE DO HAVE TWO MEMBERS WHO ARE MEETING REMOTELY.

COUNCIL MEMBERS BASS AND MOORE ARE MEETING REMOTELY.

SO THEY ARE THEY ARE WITH US AS WELL.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I DON'T HAVE TO.

I DON'T HAVE TO TELL THE COUNCIL THAT THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM IS ONE OF THE MORE SOPHISTICATED EXERCISES THAT YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH EACH YEAR.

THIS IS ACTUALLY MY 22ND CIP, AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS HAS BEEN BY FAR THE MOST COMPLEX CIP IN MY LIFETIME HERE HERE AT THE CITY OF GARLAND AND AND A LOT OF CREDIT GOES TO THE STAFF AND THE DEPARTMENTS FOR WORKING THROUGH THAT.

THE REASON FOR THE COMPLEXITIES ARE NUMBER ONE, WE HAVE AN ENORMOUS NUMBER OF PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE AS AS WAS MENTIONED TUESDAY NIGHT.

THIS IS GARLAND LARGEST CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM EVER, AND THAT REALLY IS A TESTAMENT TO TO THE WORK AND THE DETERMINATION AND THE VISION OF THIS COUNCIL.

BUT NEVER BEFORE HAVE WE HAD THIS MANY PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE.

ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT THAT MADE THIS PARTICULAR CIP MORE DIFFICULT WAS THE FACT THAT THAT UNTIL YOU GO THROUGH DESIGN UNTIL YOU HAVE AN ALIGNMENT ON RIGHT AWAY, YOUR YOUR ESTIMATES ARE PRETTY FUZZY.

AND AND SO WE ARE NOW AT THE PROCESS IN OUR PROGRAM WHERE THOSE DESIGNS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED AND THOSE ALIGNMENTS HAVE BEEN FINALIZED.

AND SO YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE IMPACT AND WE CALL THOSE SCOPE CORRECTIONS WHEN WE HAVE THE FINAL DESIGNS, WHEN WE HAVE THE ALIGNMENT STUDIES, THEN IT BECOMES VERY CLEAR WHAT THE COST OF THE PROJECT IS GOING TO BE.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO BE GOING OVER THOSE, BOTH IN SUMMARY IN DETAIL TODAY SO THAT YOU HAVE A FEEL OF WHAT'S HAPPENED.

THE OTHER THING THAT OF COURSE WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED THIS YEAR IS WHAT WE REFER TO AS COVID INFLATION.

AND I DON'T HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THAT CONCRETE AND OTHER BUILDING MATERIALS HAVE SKYROCKETED AND AND ARE SCARCE.

AND AS AS WE GO TO BID CONTRACTORS, MANY TIMES WE'LL HEDGE NOT KNOWING WHAT THE COMMODITY PRICES ARE GOING TO BE.

AND SO WE'VE WE'VE TRIED TO ACCOUNT FOR THAT AS BEST WE CAN IN OUR UPDATED PROJECTIONS.

THE OTHER THE OTHER THING THAT MADE THIS PARTICULAR CIP COMPLEX WAS THE ARPA FUNDS.

AND AS WE HAVE GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS, THE THE COUNCIL HAS CHOSEN THE PROJECTS THAT THEY WANTED TO BE FUNDED WITH THESE ADDITIONAL FEDERAL FUNDS AS WE HAVE HAVE MATCHED THOSE PROJECTS WITH THE GUIDELINES AND THE RESTRICTIONS ON ARPA FUNDS.

WE'VE MADE SOME SHIFTS IN FUNDING SOURCES, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, EVERYTHING THE COUNCIL WANTED FUNDED IS IN THE CIP.

IT MAY HAVE STARTED OUT AS ARPA FUNDS AND NOW IT'S GEO FUNDS, OR IT MAY HAVE STARTED OUT AS ARPA FUNDS AND NOW CO FUNDS.

BUT THE ARPA FUNDS ARE THEN USED TO FUND SOMETHING WAS THAT WAS A GENERALLY THAT WAS ORIGINALLY A GEO OR A CO.

AND SO AGAIN, A LOT OF MOVING PARTS.

BUT WHAT I WANT TO STRESS TO THE COUNCIL IS AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT ACTUALLY WORKS OUT AND AND WE'RE WE'RE GOING TO START TODAY WITH SOME SOMEWHAT OF AN OVERVIEW OF HOW IT DOES THAT AND TO TO HOPEFULLY GIVE YOU A FRAMEWORK TO TO PUT ALL OF THESE MOVING PARTS AND PIECES TOGETHER.

OF COURSE, THIS WE REFER TO THIS SATURDAY SESSION IS IS ONE OF OUR DEATH BY POWERPOINT SESSIONS.

WE WE DO HAVE A LOT TO TAKE YOU THROUGH TODAY.

WE'LL WE'LL TRY TO MOVE QUICKLY AND JUDGE OUR PACE BASED ON ON YOUR QUESTIONS.

BUT BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT IN ORDER TO KEEP MOVING, IF YOU HAVE A COMPLEX QUESTION OR

[00:05:07]

SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO RESEARCH OR TO TO FINE TUNE, WE WILL WE WILL WRITE THAT DOWN AND THEN GET ANSWERS BACK TO THE COUNCIL AS QUICKLY AS WE CAN.

OF COURSE WE'LL HAVE WE'LL HAVE SOME OTHER SESSIONS TO TO REVIEW THE DETAILS.

BUT AGAIN, TODAY OUR PRIMARY GOAL IS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE DEPARTMENTAL PRESENTATIONS.

SO WITH THAT, MAYOR, WITH YOUR PERMISSION, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO ALLYSON.

YES.

AND EVERYBODY HAS COPIES OF THE PRESENTATIONS.

THERE YOU GO.

SO GO AHEAD.

GOOD MORNING.

MAYOR CITY COUNCIL.

THANK YOU ALL FOR JOINING US.

KIND OF GO OVER WHAT BRYAN JUST BRIEFED YOU ON JUST A HIGH LEVEL HIGH LEVEL OVERVIEW OF THE 2022 CIP.

AS WE DISCUSSED IN THE CIP PREVIEW ON TUESDAY, THE CHALLENGES OF THE 22' CIP HAS BEEN THESE COST FACTORS AS DEFINED ON THIS SLIDE.

THE DEPARTMENT'S BUDGET AND THE CITY MANAGER'S OFFICE HAVE WORKED ALL FALL TO TRY TO IDENTIFY SCOPE CORRECTIONS.

YOU KNOW WHAT, WHAT CHANGES HAVE COME ABOUT IN PROJECTS, BUT ARE STILL TO DELIVER WHAT WAS ORIGINALLY APPROVED IN THE 19' BOND AND TO IDENTIFY OUR COST ESCALATIONS.

THESE WOULD BE RISES IN PRICES MAINLY DUE TO A LOT DUE TO SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC.

WHILE ALSO PRIORITIZING AND BRINGING FORWARD FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION SOME SCOPE ADDITIONS, WHICH WE'RE CONSIDERING AS OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPAND ON IMPROVEMENTS UNDERWAY IN THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM OR AS A RESULT OF A DEPARTMENT'S MASTER PLAN, AS WELL AS TO BRING FORWARD SOME NEW REQUESTS BY DEPARTMENTS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER.

THE 2022 INCORPORATES TWENTY THREE OF THE TWENTY FIVE ADOPTED AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT PROJECTS, WITH SEVERAL PROPOSED FUNDING SHIFTS TO ALIGN WITH OUR FEDERAL GUIDANCE AND TO FUND A NEW PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC AS WE'RE PROPOSING.

CHANGE IN PROJECT EXPENDITURES FROM THE 21' TAX SUPPORTED CIP TOLD US ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT POINT SEVEN MILLION OVER THE FIVE YEAR PLAN.

SO THIS WOULD BE LOOKING AT 22' ONWARD FIVE YEARS OUT.

OF THIS AMOUNT, NINETEEN POINT NINE MILLION IS PROPOSED FOR NEW PROJECTS, WHICH IS FOR COUNCIL'S CONSIDERATION, AS WELL AS THE ADDITION OF OUR ARPA PROJECTS INTO THIS YEAR'S CIP, WHICH MAKES UP FIFTY TWO POINT ONE MILLION.

THE NET TOTAL CHANGE DUE TO SCOPE CORRECTIONS, COST ESCALATION, COST SAVINGS AND SCOPE CORRECTIONS IS THIRTY SIX POINT SEVEN MILLION, OR THIRTY FOUR PERCENT OF OUR TOTAL CHANGE.

MAJORITY OF THIS CHANGE IS ASSOCIATED WITH ARPA PROJECTS OR NEW PROJECTS.

SEVENTY MILLION TO THE RIGHT HAND SLIDE SIDE OF THIS POWERPOINT SLIDE IS A SUMMARY OF HOW THESE CHANGES ARE PROPOSED TO BE FUNDED.

SEVENTY MILLION IS PROPOSED TO BE FUNDED WITH ARPA, DALLAS COUNTY, OR TXDOT PARTICIPATION, GRANT FUNDING OR OTHER CASH SOURCES SUCH AS TREE MITIGATION, IMPACT FEES OR OTHER CASH RESERVES.

THE NEW DEBT ISSUANCE REQUIREMENTS OF THE THESE PROPOSED CHANGES IS THIRTY EIGHT POINT SEVEN MILLION OVER THE FIVE YEAR PLAN AND ARE WELL WITHIN THE CITY'S PROJECTED DEBT SERVICE CAPACITY.

THE DEBT SERVICE MODEL CONSERVATIVELY PROJECTS REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES OVER THE NEXT 30 YEARS.

GO INTO MORE DETAIL, SCOPE CORRECTIONS MAKE UP THIRTY POINT FOUR MILLION OF THE CHANGE OVER THE FIVE YEAR PLAN, AS YOU KNOW, AS BRYAN WAS EXPLAINING EARLIER PROJECTS AS PROJECTS GO THROUGH THE DESIGN PROCESS OR COMPLETE ALIGNMENT STUDIES.

NEW INFORMATION IS IDENTIFIED AND WE COME UP WITH A FINAL COST ESTIMATE.

THIS SLIDE IDENTIFIES THOSE PROJECTS WITH THESE CHANGES, AND DEPARTMENTS WILL BE GOING INTO MORE DEPTH THROUGHOUT THE DAY OVER THESE SHIFTS.

WE'VE IDENTIFIED COST ESCALATIONS, YOU KNOW, PROJECTS THAT HAVE EXPERIENCE CHANGING CHANGES IN PRICE AS WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE BID PROCESS, YOU KNOW, MATERIALS COSTS HAVE RISE AS WELL AS SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC.

AND THAT ACCOUNTS FOR TWELVE POINT FIVE MILLION OF THE CHANGE TO THE FIVE YEAR PLAN.

OF THIS AMOUNT, FIVE POINT SEVEN MILLION IS RELATED TO DOWNTOWN.

[00:10:01]

WE DO HAVE SOME SCOPE EDITIONS FOR COUNCIL'S CONSIDERATION WITHIN OUR FIVE YEAR PLAN.

THESE ARE OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPAND ON IMPROVEMENTS UNDERWAY, AND A LOT OF THESE ARE COMING FROM CHANGES OR INFORMATION DEVELOPED IN THE DEPARTMENT'S MASTER PLAN THAT WAS FINALIZED AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM.

DEPARTMENTS WILL BE SPEAKING TO THESE REQUESTS TODAY.

AND FINALLY, WE HAVE SOME NEW PROJECTS FOR NEW PROJECT ADDITIONS OVER THE FIVE YEAR PLAN FOR COUNCIL'S CONSIDERATION.

THIS MAKES UP NINETEEN POINT NINE MILLION AND DEPARTMENTS WILL ALSO BE BRIEFING THE COUNCIL ON THESE REQUESTS TODAY.

IN SUMMARY, THE PROPOSED EXPENDITURES FROM THE 21' TAX SUPPORTED CIP CHANGE ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT POINT SEVEN MILLION OVER THE FIVE YEAR PLAN, OF WHICH THIRTY EIGHT POINT SEVEN MILLION IS NEW DEBT REQUIREMENTS OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, WHICH IS IN WITHIN OUR CAPACITY TO FUND DEPARTMENTS, WILL BE PROVIDING NEW DETAILED INFORMATION ON THESE CHANGES TODAY.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT WE WERE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME COST SAVINGS, AS WELL AS OTHER CASH SOURCES FROM ARPA OR DALLAS COUNTY, TXDOT PARTICIPATION TO TRY TO MINIMIZE THE IMPACT TO THE CITY'S DEBT SERVICE CAPACITY.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE WE GET STARTED.

OBVIOUSLY, WE'VE GOT WE'VE GOT 13 PRESENTATIONS IN FRONT OF US.

WE CAN CERTAINLY ADDRESS QUESTIONS AS WE GO.

AND AS WAS MENTIONED EARLIER, IF THERE'S IF THERE IS A QUESTION THAT MAY REQUIRE A LITTLE MORE RESEARCH, AS WE DO IN AS WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST, THOSE ANSWERS WILL BE PROVIDED AT A LATER DATE TO ALL OF US.

AND THEN AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE WILL HAVE SOME TIME FOR DISCUSSION AND SORT OF MAYBE SOME REVIEW OF OF ANY POTENTIAL QUESTIONS THAT THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED.

THANK YOU.

[2. 2022 Proposed Capital Improvement Program (CIP) - Staff Presentations]

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S GET STARTED.

PRESENTATION NUMBER ONE.

PARKS, RECREATION AND CULTURAL ARTS MR. HESSER.

MAYOR COUNCIL I HOPE EVERYONE IS ADEQUATELY CAFFEINED FOR THIS.

WELL, AND I SHOULD ALSO ADD WE WILL TAKE SOME BREAKS ALONG THE WAY.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO PLOW THROUGH ALL 13 OF THESE AT ONE SHOT.

WE WILL TAKE SOME COFFEE BREAKS, SO TO SPEAK.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I WILL GO THROUGH THESE FAIRLY QUICKLY, IF THAT'S OK.

I THINK MOST EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH THESE, AND SO I'LL DO MY BEST TO SUMMARIZE WHERE WE ARE IN THE PROCESS A LITTLE BIT FOR THE VERY FIRST ONE.

SURF AND SWIM.

THIS IS A BOND PROJECT THAT WAS ALLOCATED TO REPLACE THE EXISTING SURF AND SWIM WITH THE NEW FAMILY AQUATIC FACILITY.

WHAT TO BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO ON THIS ONE, AND I JUST WANTED TO GIVE COUNCIL AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONSIDER THIS.

THERE'S A TWO MILLION DOLLAR UNFUNDED REQUEST HERE JUST FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AT SOME FUTURE TIME, BECAUSE THE MASTER PLAN BUDGET CALLED FOR AND IDENTIFIED A COUPLE OF FUTURE ITEMS, AND ONE OF THOSE WAS A FLOW RIDER AND THE OTHER ONE WAS AN ANDORRA SPLASH PAD.

SO THE INITIAL BUDGET THAT MOVED FORWARD THAT YOU'LL SEE AT THIRTEEN MILLION DOES NOT INCLUDE THAT FUTURE IDENTIFIED ITEM IN THE MASTER PLAN.

SO JUST SOMETHING FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

WE HOPE TO START DESIGN FOR THIS, THIS YEAR.

NEXT ONE IS GRANGER ANNEX, THIS ONE IS WAS REALLY A COMBINED PROJECT WITH THE GRANGER RECREATION CENTER IN ONE BUDGET.

ONCE THAT WAS COMPLETED, THE REMAINING FUNDS WERE ALLOCATED TO COMPLETE THE GRANGER ANNEX, WHICH IS AN EXTREMELY WELL-USED AND BOOKED RENTAL FACILITY.

IT SEEMS TO BE THE PERFECT SIZE, SO THIS ONE IS FOR SOME ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE MR. BRADFORD MENTIONED THAT WE DID HAVE SOME UNEXPECTED SURPRISES ON BID DAY, DESPITE INDEPENDENT ESTIMATOR ESTIMATING THE PROJECT AS IT WAS DESIGNED AND INDICATED THAT IT WOULD BE ON BUDGET JUST MONTHS BEFORE THE BID DATE.

BUT THIS IS WHAT THAT REQUEST IS FOR, AND IT PRIMARILY BRINGS THE BUILDING UP TO CODE IN ADA STANDPOINT, REPLACING ALL THE WINDOWS, ALL THE FURNISHINGS, UPDATING THE KITCHEN AND EXPANDING THAT.

AND THEN THERE WAS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND THE USE OF THAT BUILDING BY GOING TO THE EXTERIOR TO THE REAR WHERE IT FACES THE PARK.

IT'S ACTUALLY A REALLY NICE VIEW.

[00:15:02]

HERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF A SNEAK PEEK OF WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE THE NEW THE NEW FAÃ♪ADE FROM THE FRONT AND THE EXPANSION TOWARDS THE BACK THAT WOULD BE SHADED ON THOSE TWO SIDES AND OPEN UP INTO THE PARK AND REALLY MAKE A MUCH MORE USE OUT OF THAT BUILDING.

NEXT ONE IS HOLLABAUGH, THIS ADDITIONAL FUNDING REQUEST IS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT SOME OF THE DYNAMICS THAT TOOK PLACE WITH MAKING ONCE THE VOTERS APPROVED THE USE OF THE PARK FOR THE LIBRARY.

PARTNERING THAT USE WITH THIS BUILDING CREATED SOME GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE BETWEEN THE TWO BUILDINGS TO HAVE SOME MULTI-USE MULTI PROGRAMING SPACE IN ORDER TO DO THAT.

IT MADE SENSE TO RECONFIGURE THE INTERIOR, RELOCATE THE ENTRANCE TO THE OTHER SIDE SO THAT IT FACES THE LIBRARY.

PARKING REQUIREMENTS WERE FIGURED OUT, SO IT'S ESSENTIALLY GOING TO BE FOURTEEN THOUSAND APPROXIMATELY FOURTEEN THOUSAND SQUARE FEET OF NEW CONSTRUCTION AND INCLUDES A NEW GYM, A REALLY NICE ADDITIONAL MULTIPURPOSE ROOM.

AND THEN ABOUT THIRTY EIGHTY HUNDRED SQUARE FEET OF THE RENOVATION ON THE INTERIOR SIDE, THAT WILL EXPAND THE FITNESS ROOM A LITTLE BIT AND THEN HAVE BETTER SECURITY AND CONTROL ON THE ENTRANCE.

NEXT ONE'S GARLAND SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER.

THAT ONE'S IN PROGRESS, NOTHING NEW TO REPORT HERE OTHER THAN SOME CHALLENGES THAT WERE THERE.

WE KIND OF WORK THROUGH FROM A BUDGET STANDPOINT AND SHOULD INCLUDE ALL THE THINGS THAT THAT FOLKS ARE EXPECTING.

THERE WERE SOME CHALLENGES WITH REQUIREMENTS IN EXPANSION RELATED TO SPRINKLING THE BUILDING, AND THE ARCHITECT WORKED THROUGH THAT IN THIS PROCESS.

HOLFORD REC CENTER THAT IS IN DESIGN PROCESS RIGHT NOW, AND THERE'S A LITTLE LITTLE SNEAK PEAK OF THE FAÃ♪ADE THERE AT THE BOTTOM AS COMPARED TO WHAT IT IS THERE ON THE TOP.

WHAT PRECIPITATED THIS ADDITIONAL REQUEST IS AS WE WORK THROUGH THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS THAT WEREN'T DIRECTLY ADDRESSED BY CATEGORY IN THE GDC, WE DID IT MORE OF A STRAIGHT CALCULATION OF USE AND POTENTIAL PEOPLE THAT WOULD NEED TO PARK.

IT WILL NECESSITATE THE RELOCATION OF THE SPORT COURTS TO THE WHERE IS THAT TO THE WEST? SO IN ORDER TO DO THAT, THAT WAS NOT ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE ORIGINAL BUDGET.

SO THIS THIS FUNDING REQUEST WILL HELP ACCOUNT FOR RELOCATING THE TWO PICKLEBALL COURTS, THE BASKETBALL COURT, THAT KIND OF THING.

AND THOSE HAVE NOT BEEN YET DESIGNED.

SO I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING REALLY TO SHOW FOR THAT, BUT CONTINGENT UPON THIS APPROVAL THAT WOULD BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT.

HOLFORD AQUATIC CENTER THAT'S ALSO MOVING FORWARD THAT'S ACCOUNTED FOR IN THIS BUDGET.

SPLASH PADS MOVING FORWARD, THOSE THOSE ARE WELL INTO DESIGN.

WE HOPE THAT EMBREE AND LON WYNNE WILL BE BID SOON WRAPPING UP THE DESIGN AT THIS POINT.

WATSON PARK IS TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT ONE'S CONNECTED TO THE TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAR GRANT PROGRAM, SO THAT CANNOT BE INITIATED UNTIL THEY ARE READY TO ISSUE THE CONTRACT.

IT TAKES A LOT OF FEDERAL REVIEW.

WE'VE BEEN ADVISED THAT THAT COULD HAPPEN THIS MONTH, BUT WE'LL WE'LL SEE WHEN WE SEE.

SO THERE'S A QUICK SUMMARY OF THE PROGRESS AND THE SCHEDULE OF THE BOND PROJECTS.

MOVING ON TO THE ARPA PROJECTS OR THIS ONE'S A HYBRID, SO THIS ONE'S PARTIAL BOND FUNDS, PARTIAL ARPA.

SO YOU SEE HERE WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT NOW IS PHASE ONE.

IT WOULD INCLUDE A PRO SHOP, TWELVE TENNIS COURTS, PARKING, AN ENTRY DRIVE OFF OF 66.

AND THAT DESIGN IS ALSO WELL UNDERWAY, CONTINGENT UPON APPROVAL.

WE ARE HOPING TO WE'D LIKE TO SEE BIDDING HAPPENING IN EARLY SUMMER.

SKATE PARK, THIS ONE IS JUST TIDYING UP IN THE BUDGET.

THE LAST PAYMENTS OWED TO THE CONTRACTOR AND THE DESIGNERS HERE IT IS COMPLETE AND THE FOOTPRINT ITSELF FOR THE SKATE PARK IS COMPLETE.

THE REMAINING ITEMS ARE IN RICK ODEN PARK.

PHASE ONE ARE GOING TO BE ALL THE REMAINING SHADE AND PARKING AND LANDSCAPING, IRRIGATION, ALL THE THINGS THAT GO WITH THIS RESTROOM, THAT KIND OF THING IS IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION NOW.

THE GATEWOOD PICNIC PAVILION, THIS PROJECT WAS ORIGINALLY A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY FOR THE RENOVATION OF THE STRUCTURE ITSELF AND A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY TO UPGRADE THE PARKING LOT, SO SOME SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDS WERE REQUESTED HERE.

A COUPLE OF THINGS.

THE PARKING LOT IS A SIGNIFICANT CHALLENGE BECAUSE IT'S ON A PRETTY STEEP GRADE.

AND IT ALSO OCCURRED TO US THAT GIVEN THE SIZE OF THE GROUPS THAT USE THIS

[00:20:01]

PAVILION AND THAT IT SERVES AS A MAJOR KIND OF STOPPING AREA ON THE TRAIL THAT IT REALLY NEEDED A RESTROOM.

SO THE BULK OF THE FUNDS HERE ARE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN GET A RESTROOM AT THE ENTRANCE OF THIS PARKING LOT HERE FOR THE TRAIL USERS AS WELL AS THE PAVILION USERS.

JOHN PAUL JONES WERE HOPING TO START DESIGN SOON ON THIS AGAIN AS SOON AS WE GET THE GREEN LIGHT FROM TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE.

THIS IS A SUBSTANTIAL BOATING ACCESS GRANT.

THIS IS A GREAT PROJECT I THINK IS GOING TO BEAR A LOT OF FRUIT FOR A LOT OF REASONS IN THIS PART OF TOWN.

BUT AS SOON AS WE ARE AUTHORIZED TO MOVE FORWARD, WE'LL START THE DESIGN PHASE AND THEN THAT GETS SUBMITTED AGAIN, AND THEN THEY WILL DIGEST THOSE PLANS AND THEN ISSUE THE SECOND PART OF THE GRANT FOR CONSTRUCTION.

RICK ODEN AGAIN, WE'RE WON'T REHASH ANYTHING HERE, BUT WE ARE WELL UNDERWAY FOR PHASE ONE.

PHASE TWO HAS BEEN WE HAVE BID PHASE TWO AND IT'S IT'S BEEN AWARDED AND STARTED CONSTRUCTION ALREADY.

SO THIS IS THIS PARK IS REALLY SHAPING UP.

MONTGOMERY THIS WAS ONE THAT WAS ADDITIONAL FUNDS WERE PROVIDED FROM THE FROM THE TIF.

AND SO DESIGN IS WELL UNDERWAY HERE.

I DON'T HAVE THE TIMING FRESH IN MY MIND.

BUT ONE OF THE REQUESTS HERE IS IS THAT THE BUDGET GOT TIGHT AND WE NEEDED SOME FUNDS FROM THE TREE MITIGATION TO GET THE SOCCER FIELD RENOVATED AND RETURFED AS IT IS IN DIRE NEED.

THE DOWNTOWN RESTROOM THAT HAS BEEN DESIGNED AND IS GETTING ORDERED SOON, AND IT WAS INTENDED TO BE TIMED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE DOWNTOWN.

SO I BELIEVE WE'RE WE'RE ON TARGET FOR THAT.

WATSON PARK, WE ALREADY TOUCHED ON THAT, THAT ONE'S CONTINGENT ON THE GRANT BEING AWARDED, BUT THIS IS AGAIN IS IS MOSTLY COMPLETED IN DESIGN, IS SHAPING UP TO BE A FANTASTIC PROJECT.

SO WE'RE REALLY EXCITED TO GET THIS ONE GOING.

DUCK CREEK SOUTH EXTENSION YOU CAN SEE THERE ON THE MAP WHERE THAT IS, SO THIS WILL BE UNDERWAY THIS YEAR, AS WELL AS A GREAT DEAL OF OTHER TRAIL PROJECTS I THINK THERE'S A SEPARATE SLIDE FOR THAT.

PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT PROGRAM WE'RE GETTING VERY CLOSE TO WRAPPING UP GROUP TWO, AS YOU SEE HERE, AND THEN SOON WE'LL BE BIDDING AN AWARDING GROUP THREE.

BY THE TIME THIS IS DONE, WE'LL BE COMPLETED THIS YEAR, WE WILL HAVE HAD TWENTY FIVE NEW PLAYGROUNDS PUT ON THE GROUND IN UNDER 24 MONTHS.

SPORTS FIELD RENOVATION PROGRAM, THIS ONE IS A BIT OF A HODGEPODGE, THERE'S A LOT GOING ON IN THIS PARTICULAR BUCKET, BUT YOU CAN SEE THERE WE'RE REPLACING AUDUBON RESTROOM.

THE BRADFIELD RESTROOM AND CONCESSION CENTRAL PARK HAS TWO BUILDINGS THAT ARE BEING REPLACED.

HOLFORD IS GETTING A NEW RESTROOM CONCESSION.

THERE'S FUNDING OUT OF THIS BUCKET THAT GOES TO THE BASEBALL, FIELD LIGHTING AND NEW RESTROOMS AT RICK ODEN.

AND THEN THERE IS A SHADE STRUCTURE LINE ITEM HERE, AND THAT IS, I BELIEVE YOU'LL SEE SOON ON THE COMING AGENDAS TO AWARD PURCHASE AND INSTALLATION OF THOSE SHADE STRUCTURES.

PARK SYSTEM, PARKING AND PARK ROADS.

NOT AS EXCITING OF A PROJECT, BUT NONETHELESS EXTREMELY NECESSARY, SO YOU'LL SEE KIND OF A LIST HERE OF ALL THE THINGS WE'VE DONE OUR BEST TO TIME THESE PROJECTS WHERE IT MAKES SENSE.

SO IF YOU'VE GOT ADJACENT CONSTRUCTION GOING ON AND WANT TO PUT THEM IN THE CORRECT ORDER, SO WE'RE NOT DISTURBING OR DAMAGING BRAND NEW PAVING.

AND HERE YOU SEE, THIS IS A VERY EXCITING LIST OF PROJECTS AND IT'S A IT'S A LOT OF FUNDS GOING INTO MAKING THE TRAIL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM HAPPEN.

SO WE'VE GOT THE DALLAS COUNTY AND CIP AS WELL AS ARPA AND BOND PROGRAMS. SO THIS IS REALLY THOSE ADDITIONAL FUNDS OF ACCELERATED TRAIL PROJECTS THAT WE DID NOT ANTICIPATE COMPLETION THIS EARLY.

SO I THINK THIS WILL BE A PHENOMENAL ACCOMPLISHMENT.

LOU HUFF PARK VERY EXCITING PROJECT.

THIS ONE, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT ARPA FUNDS THAT WILL COMPLETELY RENOVATE THE REMAINING PORTION OF LOU HUFF PARK LOOKING FOR WAYS TO REPURPOSE THE OLD REC CENTER, KEEPING THE FOUNDATION AND THE STRUCTURE TO THAT FACILITY AND REPURPOSING IT, PROVIDING A LOT OF OPPORTUNITY FOR COVERED SHADE.

THINGS UNDER THERE, SUCH AS PICNIC PAVILIONS, SPORT COURTS, THOSE KIND OF THINGS.

WE WOULD LIKE TO START DESIGN ON THAT, ONCE THE BUDGET'S APPROVED.

LIKEWISE FOR KINGSLEY SIMILAR SITUATION, HERE WE'D LIKE TO START DESIGN ALL THE ARPA PROJECTS.

WE HAVE TO DO SEPARATE RFQS FOR THOSE I'M SURE EVERYONE REMEMBERS.

WE ARE NOT ABLE TO PULL THOSE OFF THE EXISTING SHORT LIST.

SO THAT ADDS A LITTLE BIT OF TIME THAT WE'D LIKE TO START ONCE THE BUDGET'S APPROVED.

[00:25:01]

SAME WITH WYNNE JOYCE THAT'S A COMMUNITY PARK LEVELS SIZE IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF TOWN.

AND SO THERE ARE SOME.

YOU'LL SEE A LIST HERE OF SOME POSSIBLE AMENITIES THAT COULD GO IN THERE, BUT AGAIN, ONCE THE DESIGNER IS PROCURED, THEN WE WOULD START THE PUBLIC MEETING PROCESS, MAKING SURE WE'VE GOT GOOD CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT TO HELP CONTRIBUTE TO WHAT WHAT THEY'D LIKE TO SEE IN THIS PARK.

RICK ODENS SPLASH PAD, ALSO ARPA FUNDS, AGAIN, THAT ONE WOULD BE WORKED IN AS A SEPARATE PROCUREMENT, SEPARATE CONTRACT.

ASIDE FROM WHAT'S GOING ON CURRENTLY WITH THE CONTRACT, PER THE ARPA FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS, BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO GET STARTED ON DESIGN.

ACTUALLY, THERE IS SOME DESIGN ALREADY DONE, BUT WE'D GET THAT MOVE AND PUT PLUG IT IN AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME ON CONSTRUCTION.

ANOTHER PROJECT WHERE WE ALL KNOW SHADE IS SUPER IMPORTANT.

SO WE WE HAVE THE OLD CARTER SOFTBALL SHADE STRUCTURE THAT WAS DAMAGED SOME TIME AGO WAS UNABLE TO BE REPLACED.

SO THIS IS A PROJECT TO REPLACE THAT IT'S IN DESPERATE NEED OF IT, AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL SHADE FOR THE DOG PARK.

THEN WE GET INTO THE PARK CATALYST AREA IMPROVEMENTS KIND OF JUST AT A HIGH LEVEL, THERE'S FUNDING FOR A SIDE PATH ON THE ON THE BOBTOWN WATERHOUSE CONNECTION BETWEEN, I THINK THAT'S ROAN ROAD AND AN ROWLETT ROAD.

SO THAT'S AND IT'S PART OF A GREATER, GREATER CONNECTION AND PARTNERSHIP WITH ALSO GOING ON ON ROAN ROAD WITH DALLAS COUNTY.

AND THEN THE OTHER ONE IS IS YOU'RE AWARE OF THE ROSEHILL LINEAR PARK KIND OF A PREVIOUS COMMITMENT THERE TO PUT A TRAIL LOOP TRAIL LOOP IN OFF OF THE ENTRANCE INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT WAS IS BEING CONSTRUCTED NOW AND THEN THE BALANCE OF THOSE FUNDS WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO ALLOCATE AS A PRIVATE PARTNER AS BROUGHT IN TO DEVELOP THE REMAINING PORTION OF THAT PROPERTY.

BUT AT LEAST THE TRAIL PIECE IS THE DESIGNERS UNDER CONTRACT AND MOVING FORWARD WITH THAT NOW.

SO THERE'S THE SUMMARY OF ALL THE PARKS GOING ON KIND OF A SLOW YEAR .

[LAUGHTER] JUST FOR FUN, I CALCULATED I ADDED UP ALL THE PROJECTS THAT ARE THAT ARE CIP LEVEL FUNDED PROJECTS AND CITY STAFF WILL WILL TOUCH EIGHTY PROJECTS IN ANY GIVEN MONTH, IN VARIOUS PHASES FROM START TO COMPLETION.

SO THAT'S NOT EVEN INCLUDING THE STAFF LEVEL INITIATED RENOVATIONS AND CLEANUPS AND REPAIRS AND THOSE KIND OF THINGS THAT ARE ALSO BEING DONE, BUT GREAT TIME TO TO BE IN GARLAND.

SO THERE WE GO A MERE SIXTY SEVEN MILLION TO ACCOMPLISH.

ANY QUESTIONS? WELL, YOU KNOW, I WILL SAY, YOU KNOW, I LOVE THAT GATEWOOD PICNIC PAVILION, I KNOW IT'S NOT THE MOST HIGH PROFILE FEATURE IN OUR PARK SYSTEM, BUT I THINK THE IMPROVEMENTS THERE, THE THE THE APPRECIATION FOR THAT.

I MEAN, OVER THE DECADES, THERE HAVE LITERALLY BEEN HUNDREDS OF FAMILY REUNIONS, BIRTHDAY PARTIES, LITTLE LEAGUE THINGS, WHATEVER YOU CAN IMAGINE, HAVE BEEN HELD AT THAT FACILITY.

AND SO THE IMPROVING THE PARKING AREA, WHICH IS CAN BE A LITTLE DICEY THERE, BUT CERTAINLY ADDING THE RESTROOM WILL MAKE THAT.

WE'LL MAKE THAT ONE.

YOU KNOW, I KNOW THIS IS JUST ONE VERY SMALL FEATURE IN A VERY LARGE SYSTEM, BUT I THINK THE IMPROVEMENTS THERE WILL BE PHENOMENAL AND VERY APPRECIATED.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

FIRST THING AMEN TO THE MAYOR, MR. HESSER, WOULD YOU GO BACK TO THE SLIDE ON THE SURF AND SWIM REGIONAL AQUATIC FACILITY? OOPS! I JUST NEED I JUST NEED TO UNDERSTAND FOR ME, TO YOU OR THE CITY MANAGER.

BULLET BULLET THIRD BULLET DOWN THERE.

WOULD YOU EXPLAIN THAT PROCESS? SOME OF US MAY NOT EVEN BE AROUND, HOW IT WOULD WORK.

THE UNFUNDED REQUEST, YES, THAT I'VE MADE.

MR. BRADFORD ADD TO THAT A LITTLE BIT, BUT IT'S ESSENTIALLY A REQUEST THAT HAS NOT BEEN ALLOCATED FUNDING.

I BELIEVE IN THIS YEAR, BUT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THE COUNCIL AT LEAST SAW THAT IT WAS A FUTURE.

IT WAS DESIGNATED IN THE MASTER PLAN AS A FUTURE AND WAS NOT ORIGINALLY PART OF THE BUDGET.

AND AS THINGS HAVE KIND OF MATERIALIZED IN THE CURRENT BIDDING ENVIRONMENT, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THAT.

HELLO.

HOW THAT PROCESS WORKS IS WE THE WHEN COUNCIL APPROVES THE 22' CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, THEY'RE APPROVING THE TWENTY TWO PROJECT SPENDING APPROPRIATION.

SO EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING TO BE [INAUDIBLE] FOR THE 22' YEAR.

[00:30:03]

YOU'RE ALSO CONSIDERING PROJECTS AND FUTURE EXPENDITURES OVER THE FIVE YEAR PLAN OUT THROUGH 2026 OR BEYOND.

AND SO BEGINNING A PROJECT IN 22' THAT IS GOING TO TAKE MULTIPLE YEARS, YOU'RE IN SENSE OBLIGATING YOURSELF TO FUND THAT FUTURE REMAINDER OF THE REQUESTS IN FUTURE YEARS.

AND SO THIS UNFUNDED REQUEST, IT IS A SCOPE ADDITION.

IT IS OUT IN OUR DEBT MODEL AND OUR FIVE YEAR PLAN FOR 24' AND 25'.

AND SO WHEN YOU GET TO YEAR 2024, THAT IS WHEN WE WILL ACTUALLY BE ASKING YOU TO ISSUE THE DEBT, APPROVE THE DEBT.

BUT WE DO HAVE IT AS PART OF THE FIVE YEAR PLAN AND WE'RE ASKING YOU TO CONSIDER FOR THIS PROJECT, ADDING THAT TO THE SCOPE OF THIS REGIONAL FACILITY.

GREAT.

THANK.

THANK YOU, ALLYSON.

SO WE'RE PLANNING TO FUND IT.

OK, THAT'S THANK YOU.

MR. CITY MANAGER YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I MEANT TO SAY.

OH, OK.

SEE IF WE COULD GET WE GOT TO SAVE SOME TIME.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO HEAR.

WAS IT WAS IT? YES.

YES, WE'RE GOING TO FUND IT.

AND THE OTHER THING, ANDY, THAT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT AND I'VE LOOKED THROUGH HERE IS SOME OF THE DRAINAGE CHALLENGES THAT WE HAVE ALONG THE TRAILS, PARTICULARLY AVALON IN THAT AREA.

AND I LOOKED BOTH IN THIS SECTION AND I LOOKED IN ENGINEERING.

AND SO IS THAT CONSIDERED AT ALL IN ANY OF THIS, WHICH SPECIFIC PORTION, YOU KNOW, THE THE TRAILS ALONG THE TRAILS WHERE WE'VE GOT DRAINAGE AND EROSION ISSUES? SO THERE'S A THERE'S A PROJECT IN AVALON PARK ITSELF THAT IS DEALING WITH THE FISHING PIER AND THE OUTFALL STRUCTURE FOR THE POND.

OR YOU REMEMBER THE AREA THAT WE TALKED ABOUT DUCK CREEK.

YEAH, NEAR THE GP&L EASEMENT.

THAT'S CORRECT.

SO THAT ONE IS GOING TO BE AN IN-HOUSE MAINTENANCE PROJECT.

WE'RE GOING TO ADDRESS IT FIRST AND SEE WHAT WE CAN DO WITH WHAT WE HAVE TO GET WATER.

WE WENT OUT THERE AND KIND OF LOOKED AT IT.

THE WHOLE AREA IS EXTREMELY FLAT, SO IT DOESN'T GO ANYWHERE QUICKLY.

BUT IT APPEARS AT ONE TIME THERE WAS A DRAINAGE SWALE THAT ALLOWED IT TO GET TO THAT POND.

THAT'S BACK THERE AND IT HAS SILTED IN.

SO WE'RE GOING TO WE'RE GOING TO WORK TO DO THAT FIRST AND SEE IF IT HAS ANY ANY BENEFIT, IT'S AN IN-HOUSE PROJECT.

YES, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

SOME OF THESE PROJECTS DEPEND ON OUTSIDE FUNDING, LIKE FROM TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE.

WHAT'S OUR RISK ASSESSMENT ABOUT GETTING THOSE FUNDS OR EITHER NOT GETTING THEM OR THEY'RE BEING DELAYED PAST THIS YEAR? SO THEY ARE THEY ARE COMMITTED AT THIS POINT.

WE'RE JUST WAITING ON THE CONTRACT.

AND SO WHEN WE ARE AWARDED THE GRANT, THAT IS THE COMMITMENT TO AWARD.

AND THEN YOU GO THROUGH A VARIETY OF CHECKLIST ITEMS THAT THEY HAVE A COUPLE OF BUCKETS THAT FUND IT.

THERE'S STATE MONEY AND FEDERAL MONEY.

WE ARE ASSIGNED OUT OF THE FEDERAL BUCKET, SO THAT APPROVAL PROCESS TAKES LONGER.

SO THEY WILL TAKE OUR CONCEPT PLAN.

THEY WILL RUN IT THROUGH THE FEDERAL.

SO FOR JOHN PAUL JONES, IT GOES THROUGH THE U.S.

FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE.

THAT'S A LITTLE BIT LONGER PROCESS.

SO THAT'S A LITTLE HARDER TO PIN DOWN THE MONTH THAT THE CONTRACT WILL ARRIVE.

WATSON PARK IS A LITTLE QUICKER, BUT IT'S THINGS LIKE CULTURAL RESOURCE SURVEY AND ENVIRONMENTAL SURVEY IF IT'S NEEDED.

ALL SORTS OF REVIEWS THAT THEY WILL DO THAT TAKE TIME.

AND ONCE THEY'RE DONE, WE GET THE CONTRACT AND THEN IT BECOMES A REIMBURSEMENT PROCESS AS WE GO FORWARD AND AND WE'RE BUILDING AGAINST DESIGN AND BUILD AGAINST THE CONSTRUCTION.

IT'S A 50/50 REIMBURSEMENT.

AS LONG AS WE MEET ALL THEIR CHECKLIST ITEMS, THERE'S NO RISK OF LOSING THAT FUNDING.

YES, SIR.

THAT'S CORRECT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU [INAUDIBLE].

VERY GOOD.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR THIS SECTION? I SEE NONE, THANK YOU, ANDY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

NEXT, WE WILL MOVE TO POLICE.

THERE YOU GO.

THANK YOU, SIR.

GOOD MORNING.

MORNING.

SO JUMP INTO OUR BOND PROJECTS.

I'M SORRY, OUR CIP PROJECTS, OUR PROPERTY AND EVIDENCE ROOM IS MOVING ALONG.

YOU PROBABLY SEE IT BEING BUILT ON ON FOREST LANE.

THERE IT IS DUE TO OPEN THIS YEAR.

OUR BIG.

OUR NEXT BIG PROJECT IS MOVING EVERYTHING TO THAT PROPERTY ROOM, BUT THE PROPERTY ROOM IS COMING ALONG NICELY.

THAT WILL BE A PROJECT UNTO ITSELF.

THAT WILL BE A PROJECT.

I'VE GOT THE PEOPLE TO HANDLE THAT.

WE HAVE HAD A FEW HICCUPS IN GETTING EQUIPMENT.

IN FACT, WE'VE SEEN THAT IN SEVERAL OF OUR CIP PROJECTS OF THINGS GETTING DELAYED TO GETTING CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL.

BUT WE DO EXPECT THE PROPERTY ROOM TO OPEN UP THREE TO FOUR MONTHS FROM NOW.

[00:35:01]

AND THERE'S REALLY THE TWO PEOPLE THAT THAT MAKE IT HAPPEN THERE SABRINA AND SHELLI PRYOR .

OUR POLICE STATION SECURITY IMPROVEMENTS ARE ALSO MOVING ALONG.

WE PROBABLY THE BIGGEST COST TO THAT IS THE PRIVACY FENCE AROUND THE BACK LOT.

AS YOU KNOW, WE WE WERE NOTICING POLICE STATIONS GETTING ATTACKED.

IN FACT, PLANO GOT ATTACKED THIS YEAR AND SO WE WANTED TO INCREASE SECURITY AT THE POLICE STATION, THE BACKLOT PRIVACY FENCE.

WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH THAT, BUT AGAIN, IT'S GETTING EQUIPMENT IN TO GET THAT FENCE UP.

IN ADDITION, AS SECURITY CAMERAS THAT ARE FACING OUTSIDE INTO THE PARKING LOT AND UPGRADE TO THE LOCKER ROOMS AND REPURPOSE SOME OF THE NPO AND GANG UNIT SPACES, RIGHT NOW THEY SHARE AN OFFICE.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO CREATE WHERE THEY CAN HAVE EACH OF THEIR OWN OFFICE.

SO THAT'S KIND OF SUMMARY OF THOSE PROJECTS.

THE POLICE RANGE IMPROVEMENTS AS WELL WE'RE REDESIGNING THE DIRT BERMS, A BIG RAIN.

AND THERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF THAT.

THE DIRT GAVE WAY AND CAME INTO THE RANGE TO PROVIDE A COVER TO THE 50 YARD LINE.

THE BIGGEST THING HERE IS THE ADDITION OF OF ACTUAL RESTROOMS AT THE RANGE AND SOME OFFICE SPACE FOR THE TWO RANGE MASTERS THAT WORK THERE.

AND THEN THE SIMUNITIONS TRAINING FACILITY, ORIGINALLY WHEN WE STARTED LOOKING AT THIS PROJECT, WE WANTED TO, THE THOUGHT WAS TO BUILD IT OUT AT THE SAME LOCATION AS THE RANGE, BUT WE HAVE A PERFECT SETUP IN THE PROPERTY ROOM THAT WE'RE ABOUT TO VACATE.

IT'S CLOSER.

IT WORKS BETTER FOR US.

AND SO WE HAVE SHIFTED SOME OF THE MONEY FROM THAT THAT WAS INTENDED TO TO GO OUT AT THE RANGE, AND WE DIVIDED THAT INTO TWO SEPARATE PROJECTS.

AND SO FOR THE BOND PROJECTS, THERE'S A LOOK AT THOSE.

AND A SUMMARY OF FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION IN 2022.

SO NOW OUR REQUEST FOR THE BOND PROGRAM.

I'M SORRY, I KEEP GETTING THOSE MIXED UP [INAUDIBLE], CIP PROGRAM.

ONE IS THE AUTO POUND OFFICE.

THIS OFFICE IS OVER 40 YEARS OLD AND WE PUT OVER 40 YEARS OLD BECAUSE WE KNOW IT'S 40 YEARS OLD.

WE DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH OLDER IT IS.

WE THINK IT'S A LOT OLDER THAN THAT.

THE BIGGEST COMPLAINT I GET PEOPLE WORKING IN IT IS THE RACCOONS THAT PEEK AT THEM THROUGH THE FLOOR.

IT IS JUST ABOUT DONE [LAUGHTER].

WE SAID THAT THREE OR FOUR YEARS AGO [LAUGHTER].

GO AHEAD.

SO, YEAH, SO FUNDING THE FUNDING, A NEW BUILDING OUT THERE AND IMPROVING THE OVERALL THE PARKING LOT.

SOME OF THE BARRIERS TO FENCING JUST KIND OF IMPROVEMENTS OUT AT THE AUTO POUND.

IT IS AN AUTO POUND THAT WE OWN THAT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT MANAGE.

WE HAVE A THIRD PARTY CONTRACT THAT IT'S ACTUALLY IN THE BUILDING.

SWAT AND BOMB EQUIPMENT ENHANCEMENTS.

YOU KNOW, I THINK EVERYONE REMEMBERS THIS, BUT 25 YEARS AGO WE ACCEPTED A GRANT FOR A REGIONAL BOMB UNIT.

SO THE GARLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS A REGIONAL BOMB UNIT AND WE TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THAT.

THE FBI TRAINS US AND WE HAVE A LOT OF EQUIPMENT THAT GOES ALONG WITH THAT.

BUT WE WE NOT ONLY SERVE GARLAND, BUT WE WE ASSIST IN BOMB CALLS GOING EAST FROM US.

AND IF YOU SAW THE THE STORY OF ROCKWALL, THE BIG THING THEY HAD IN THE IN THE STORAGE SHED, THAT WAS OUR INITIAL RESPONSE.

NOW OUR GUYS WERE SMART THEN OR LIKE, HEY, THAT'S NOT US, CALL THE FBI.

BUT THAT WAS THAT'S THE KIND OF THE THINGS WE DO.

BUT THAT EQUIPMENT IS GETTING OLD.

TWO OF THE BOMB ROBOTS, WE BOUGHT ONE IN 1998 AND 2003.

SO REPLACING BOTH OF THOSE BOMB ROBOTS IS PART OF THIS PACKAGE.

ANOTHER PART OF IT IS AN X RAY SYSTEM.

THE TECHNOLOGY HAD ADVANCED TO SUCH A DEGREE THAT THIS X RAY SYSTEM GIVES US THE ABILITY TO TAKE A SUITCASE IF WE HAVE A PACKAGE AND SET IT IN FRONT OF THE PACKAGE.

AND SO INSTEAD OF A A BOMB TECHNICIAN AND ITS GEAR GOING THROUGH TO SEE IF THERE'S SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS, WE CAN PUT THAT X RAY THERE.

TAKE THE X RAY AND FROM A SAFE DISTANCE, SEE WHAT'S INSIDE THE PACKAGE.

[00:40:01]

ALSO IN THIS IS A LONG RANGE ACOUSTICAL DEVICE THAT WOULD BE USED BY OUR SWAT NEGOTIATORS.

THAT PIECE OF EQUIPMENT ALSO IS FAIRLY NEW AS FAR AS THE PORTABILITY OF IT, AND THAT GIVES US THE ABILITY TO INSTEAD OF BEING ON A LOUD HAILER, TRYING TO WAKE UP THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO GET SOMEONE'S ATTENTION, MAYBE A HOSTAGE SITUATION.

IT GIVES US ABILITY TO PENETRATE WALLS WITH SOUND AND WITH VOICE, SO YOU CAN DIRECT THAT SOUND PENETRATE THROUGH WALLS AND AND REACH SOMEBODY, TALK TO SOMEBODY THAT'S INSIDE MULTIPLE LEVELS.

AND SO THAT'S PART OF THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

THERE'S TWO OF THOSE.

ONE IS IS A BIGGER ONE THAT MOUNTS ON A VEHICLE AND THE OTHER IS A SMALLER ONE THAT'S PORTABLE.

I THINK THAT'S ALL THE EQUIPMENT PRETTY MUCH THERE, SO THAT WE PACKAGED ALL THAT INTO THE SWAT AND BOMB EQUIPMENT ENHANCEMENT.

THE OTHER THE OTHER PACKAGE IS THE FORENSICS EQUIPMENT LAB.

I'VE TALKED A LOT ABOUT THE NIBINS MACHINE.

NIBIN STANDS FOR NATIONAL INTEGRATED BALLISTIC INFORMATION NETWORK.

AND IF YOU THINK ABOUT FINGERPRINTS FOR A PERSON WHEN SOMEONE IS FINGERPRINTED, IT GOES INTO A SYSTEM CALLED APHIS.

AND THAT SYSTEM IS SHARED NATIONWIDE, AND SO THAT FINGERPRINT IS CONNECTED TO YOU AND ANYWHERE YOU GO.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE FINGERPRINTED IN NEW YORK OR YOU'RE FINGERPRINTED IN GARLAND, TEXAS, THAT FINGERPRINT IS PART OF THE SYSTEM.

THIS IS THE SAME THING FOR GUNS.

WHEN YOU FIRE A GUN, IT CREATES A SHELL CASING, AND THAT SHELL CASING CAN BE PUT INTO A NETWORK THAT'S MANAGED BY THE ATF.

AND WHETHER THAT GUN IS USED IN TEXAS OR OR IN NEW YORK, WE CAN CONNECT THOSE TWO EVENTS.

AND I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

WE RECENTLY HAD A SHOOTING IN THE CITY OF GARLAND, AND WE TOOK THE SHELL CASINGS WE FOUND THERE WITH NO LEADS.

WE ENTERED IT INTO THE APHIS SYSTEM AND IT WAS CONNECTED TO TWO ADDITIONAL SHOOTINGS IN DALLAS.

AND SO NOW WE CAN TEAM UP THOSE INVESTIGATIONS AND TRACK DOWN AND START TO TRACK DOWN OUR LEADS.

WHAT WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH THIS, WE DO THAT NOW.

AND SO WE WERE ABLE TO ENTER THAT INFORMATION INTO APHIS NOW.

BUT WE GET FIVE A MONTH AND WE DO IT THROUGH PLANO.

WHAT I WANT TO DO BEYOND THAT, AND SO WE DO THAT FOR MAJOR CRIMES, BUT I WANT TO DO THAT FOR EVERY GUN, FOR EVERY SHELL CASING WE FIND, EVERY TIME WE FIND A GUN OR RECOVER A GUN.

I WANT TO FIRE THAT GUN.

I WANT TO TAKE THAT SHELL CASING AND I WANT TO SEE IF I CAN CONNECT IT TO ANY OTHER CRIMES IN GARLAND OR ANY OTHER GUN SHOTS IN GARLAND.

OR IF WE SOMEONE IS WALKING THROUGH THE PARK AND FIND SHELL CASINGS.

I WANT TO TAKE THOSE SHELL CASINGS AND I WANT TO SEE WHAT THEY'RE CONNECTED TO.

AND BY DOING THAT, I THINK WE CAN START TO PIN DOWN SOME OF THIS GUN CRIME.

IT'S NOT UNCOMMON THAT ALL WE HEAR IS WE GET A CALL OF GUNSHOTS IN THE AREA.

NO SUSPECTS, NO VEHICLES, NO ANYTHING.

WE JUST HEARD GUNSHOTS AND ALL WE FIND IS SHELL CASINGS.

THIS GIVES US A LEAD TO START DOING THAT.

AND SO THAT'S PART OF THE FORENSICS PACKAGE THAT WOULD BE ATTACHED IN FORENSICS.

FORENSICS WOULD BE DOING THAT INVESTIGATION.

IT'S NOT ONLY ENTERING THE BALLISTICS, IT'S IT'S DOING THE CORRELATION FOR THOSE BALLISTICS.

ALSO, THE FORENSICS BUILDING ITSELF IS 15 YEARS OLD AND THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY, ESPECIALLY WITH DNA AND WITH WITH SPEEDING UP SOME OF THAT INVESTIGATION PROCESS, AND WE WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME OF THAT.

SO THE DNA, THE FORENSICS EQUIPMENT UPGRADES INCLUDE A VEHICLE LEFT RIGHT NOW THEY'RE JACKING CARS UP ON [INAUDIBLE].

WE WOULD LIKE AN ACTUAL VEHICLE LIFT TO LIFT THE VEHICLES, A DNA DRYING CHAMBER, FINGERPRINT POWDER STATIONS, SOME CAMERA, SOME DIFFERENT IR CAMERAS AND SOME SMALL RENOVATIONS TO THE OFFICE AREA IS ALL INCLUDED INTO THAT PROJECT.

AND SO THAT'S A SUMMARY OF THE CIP PROJECTS.

IF I WAS SMART, I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE PARKS PROJECT AND PUT IT NEXT TO THAT.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

BUT THAT'S THE SUMMARY OF THE CIP PROJECTS.

THE AUTO POUND, THE SWAT AND BOMB EQUIPMENT, AND THE FORENSICS EQUIPMENT.

AND SO NOW I OPEN UP FOR QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS PORTION? COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU, CHIEF FOR BRINGING THIS FORWARD.

THEY ALL LOOK LIKE GOOD PROJECTS.

AND I SUPPOSE THEN IF WE IF THE GUNSHOT DETECTION SYSTEM THAT WE APPROVED TUESDAY WORKS, THEN THAT'LL IMPROVE OUR ABILITY TO AT LEAST HOPEFULLY FIND THE SHELL CASINGS.

IS THAT RIGHT? I MEAN, THE IDEA IS THAT IT'LL IT'LL GIVE US A TRIANGULATION.

WE'LL BE ABLE TO LOCATE WHERE BECAUSE HALF THE PROBLEM WITH THE GUNSHOTS IS WHERE DO THEY

[00:45:01]

ACTUALLY EVEN COME FROM? THAT'S CORRECT.

I MEAN, IF YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW TO COMBINING THESE TECHNOLOGIES, YOU GET THE GUNSHOT DETECTION, YOU'RE THERE IMMEDIATELY.

HOPEFULLY, WE GET A PICTURE OF THE VEHICLE AND NOW WE CAN CORRELATE THE SHELL CASINGS.

THAT'S SO FAR BEYOND WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW.

AND BUT THAT IS THAT'S WHERE TECHNOLOGY IS LEADING US.

BUT THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

YES, SIR.

NO, THAT'S GREAT THEN.

AND IT'S GREAT JUST LOOKING AT THE BREADTH OF THE CIP PROGRAM THIS YEAR, FROM GOING FROM TRAINING TO IMPROVING OUR TECHNOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGICAL CAPABILITIES, IMPROVING KEEPING OUR FOLKS SAFE, I THINK WE'RE REALLY COVERING THE COVERING THE WATERFRONT, SO TO SPEAK.

SO WE APPRECIATE THE SERVICE.

APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

GOOD.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU MAYOR, AND CHIEF YOU AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS OFFLINE, BUT.

WE HAVE CITIZENS TWO OR THREE INVOLVED WITH WATCHING THIS THIS MORNING.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THAT I GET A LOT OF CALLS ABOUT ARE CITIZENS WHO FIND SHELL CASINGS.

MANY OF THEM IN PARKS, SOME OF THEM IN FRONT OF THEIR HOUSE, IN THE STREET.

AND THEY SAY, WHAT DO I DO WITH THESE? WHAT DO I DO WITH THESE? SO WE'VE ALREADY HAD THAT CONVERSATION.

BUT CAN YOU JUST FOR THE SAKE OF LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING THIS TECHNOLOGY? WELL, HOW SOON WOULD YOU ENVISION THIS BEING IN PLACE FIRST, FIRST QUESTION? WELL, WE'VE WE'VE TALKED TO THEM, AND IT'S HOW MUCH IS IT TO LONG TO GET IT INSTALLED THE NIBINS MACHINE? IT'S GOING TO BE SIX MONTHS PLUS.

SO IT'S AROUND SIX MONTHS TO GET THE NIBINS MACHINE IN.

THE FLOCK CAMERAS WE'RE MOVING FAST.

I'M THINKING TWO TO THREE MONTHS ON THAT.

BUT YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT.

YOU KNOW, AND YOU'VE YOU'VE BROUGHT SHELL CASINGS.

YOUR HUSBAND HAS BROUGHT SHELL CASINGS AND WE'RE LIKE, OK, WELL, WHAT DO WE DO WITH THESE? THERE'S NO LEADS.

THERE'S PEOPLE HEARD GUNSHOTS.

AND SO, YEAH, PART OF THOSE DISCUSSIONS IS WHAT WHAT KIND OF GOT US BRAINSTORMING AND COMING UP WITH AN OVERALL PLAN OF HOW DO WE ADDRESS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST COMPLAINT I GET RIGHT NOW AND YOU MAY AS WELL IS IS THE GUNSHOTS.

IS AND IT'S NOT NECESSARILY VIOLENT CRIME.

IT'S SOMEONE GOING OUT AND SHOOTING A GUN.

AND IT'S VERY DIFFICULT FOR US WHEN ALL WE HAVE IS I HEAR GUNSHOTS COMING TO THE EAST.

SO THIS IS THIS IS A WAY TO ATTACK THAT AS WELL.

OK, SO SO MY I STARTED AT THIS BACKWARDS.

SO THAT BEING THE CASE, IF WE'RE LOOKING SIX MONTHS AHEAD BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN THIS HOPEFULLY GETS INSTALLED AND UP AND RUNNING, DO YOU DO YOU WANT CITIZENS, BECAUSE THE LAST THAT WE HAD HEARD IT WAS, YOU KNOW, LABEL THEM AND DROP THEM OFF AT THE POLICE STATION.

ARE WE ACTUALLY DOING ANYTHING WITH THOSE AND SHOULD PEOPLE CONTINUE TO DO THAT OR SHOULD THEY WAIT UNTIL THIS IS IN PLACE AND THEN START, THEN.

NO BRING THEM IN.

SO WE DO DO SOMETHING WITH THOSE AND I'LL BE CLEAR ON THAT.

WE WE STILL ENTER THOSE INTO THE SYSTEM.

AND SO WE WE DON'T GO THROUGH PLANO.

WE USUALLY GO THROUGH DPS TO GET THOSE ENTERED IN.

AND ALL THAT DOES IS IF SOMETHING HAPPENS SOMEWHERE ELSE, THEY CAN SEE THE GUNSHOTS WERE HAPPENING HERE.

WHAT THIS GIVES US ABILITY TO DO IS TO CORRELATE THOSE SO THOSE SHELL CASINGS ARE STILL ENTERED INTO THE TO THE NIBIN SYSTEM NOW.

SO PLEASE BRING THEM IN.

IT'S THIS IS GOING TO GIVE US THE ABILITY TO TAKE THOSE SHELL CASINGS AND SAY, OK, WHERE ELSE HAVE THESE BEEN FIRED? THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GAINING WITH THE NIBINS MACHINE.

SO, YES, GOOD QUESTION.

VERY, VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS AND AND REALLY HEARING ABOUT RACCOONS.

I JUST HAVE TO THINK BETWEEN YOU AND STEVE OLIVER IN STREETS WITH THE ANCIENT 70 YEAR OLD TRUCKS OR HOW OLD THEY ARE, YOU KNOW, GOOD JOB AND TOTALLY SUPPORT ALL OF YOUR REQUESTS FOR THIS.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA THANK YOU, MAYOR.

CHIEF ON THE EVIDENCE BUILDING, I SEE THERE'S A WALL IN THE FRONT ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE BUILDING, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A FENCE ALL THE WAY AROUND PRETTY HIGH.

YES, THERE WILL BE A FENCE ALL THE WAY AROUND.

THERE ALSO IS GOING TO BE AN AREA FOR PARKING.

SO IF WE RECOVER A VEHICLE, THAT'S EVIDENCE WE NEED SOMEWHERE TO PARK THAT.

AND SO THE WALL IS GOING TO BLOCK SOME OF THAT PARKING FROM VIEW.

BUT IN ADDITION TO THAT, THERE WILL BE A FENCE ALL THE WAY AROUND.

IT WILL BE CONTROLLED ACCESS.

OK.

I WAS GETTING CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.

NO, NOT JUST THE WALL.

YEAH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANKS, SIR.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? THANK YOU.

GOOD.

THANK YOU.

NEXT, EXCUSE ME, NEXT, WE WILL MOVE TO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

GOOD MORNING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL LAURA DUNN WITH PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE, I'M GOING TO

[00:50:01]

COVER A FEW OF THE PROJECTS WE ARE MANAGING AND THEN TURN IT OVER TO JUDD TO COVER THE REST OF THE SECTION.

SO IN THIS YEAR'S CIP, WE HAVE FOUR PROJECTS ASSOCIATED WITH DOWNTOWN, WHICH WILL BE OUR IMMEDIATE FOCUS FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS.

THE FIRST PROJECT IS THE DOWNTOWN INFRASTRUCTURE AND INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS, WHICH IS IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING THE SQUARE.

COUNCIL APPROVED THIS CONCEPT IN 2018 AND THIS PROJECT MERGED WITH THE REDESIGN OF THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE.

CONSTRUCTION FOR THIS STARTED IN LATE 21' AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MOST OF 23'.

YOU CAN SEE THE WORK IS ACTIVELY UNDERWAY ON 5TH STREET BETWEEN STATE AND MAIN, AND BY THE END OF THIS MONTH WE WILL BE ROLLING INTO MAIN STREET AND JUST AS A REMINDER TO COUNCIL PRIOR TO THE AWARD OF THE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT, WE DISCUSSED THE NEED TO ADD FUNDING TO THIS PROJECT.

AND SO YOU ARE SEEING APPROXIMATELY FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTY THOUSAND IN COS THAT WE WILL NEED IN THE YEAR 23'.

NEXT UP, WE HAVE OUR DOWNTOWN STREETSCAPES AND REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, WHICH IS ONGOING TO UPDATE OUR STREETSCAPES IN DOWNTOWN, CONSISTENT WITH OUR URBAN DESIGN STANDARDS.

THE VOTERS APPROVED FOUR POINT SIX MILLION IN THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM TO HELP US FINISH OUT THE CORE OF OUR BROADER STREETSCAPES.

THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF THIS IS OCCURRING IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SQUARE AND THE INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS.

WE HAVE STARTED THIS WORK ALONG THE SOUTH SIDE OF AVENUE A BETWEEN 7TH AND 5TH, AND WE WILL SHORTLY BE MOVING ON TO 7TH STREET BETWEEN STATE AND AUSTIN.

AND THIS IS ANOTHER PROJECT THAT WE DISCUSSED WITH COUNCIL PRIOR TO THE AWARD OF THE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT.

SO YOU ARE SEEING ABOUT TWO POINT FIVE MILLION UNFUNDED IN THE YEAR 23'FOR COS.

NEXT UP, WE HAVE OUR DOWNTOWN GATEWAYS.

THIS PROJECT WAS INITIATED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE WAYFINDING PROGRAM, AND IT'S REALLY JUST A TOOL THAT HELPS PEOPLE KNOW THEY'VE ARRIVED IN A SPECIAL PLACE.

THIS YEAR YOU'RE SEEING THIS PROJECT, NOT BECAUSE THERE'S CHANGES TO THE FUNDING, JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE ACTIVITY THAT WAS PLANNED FOR 22' AND 23'.

THIS IS HAPPENING IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SQUARE AND INFRASTRUCTURE WORK, AND YOU WILL BE SEEING ACTIVITY ON BOTH THE SOUTHWEST CORNER AND THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF MAIN AND 5TH.

THE FOURTH AND FINAL PROJECT WE HAVE IS THE REDESIGN OF THE SQUARE.

VOTERS APPROVED THIS ORIGINALLY IN 2004 AND ADDED ADDITIONAL FUNDING THROUGH THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM.

COUNCIL APPROVED THE CONCEPT PLAN IN APRIL OF 20', AND THIS PROJECT REALLY AIMS TO ACTIVATE THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE, PROMOTING A PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT AND SPURRING ECONOMIC INVESTMENT IN SUPPORT OF OUR CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT.

ALONG WITH OUR GROWING RESIDENTIAL AREA WITHIN DOWNTOWN, SO WE WILL BE RAISING THE GRADE OF THE SQUARE TO STREET LEVEL AND CREATING A SPACE THAT WILL HOST DAILY PROGRAMING TO OUR LARGER SPECIAL EVENTS.

CONSTRUCTION ON THIS STARTED IN LATE 21' AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MOST OF 23'.

THIS IS ANOTHER PROJECT THAT WE DISCUSSED WITH COUNCIL PRIOR TO AWARD OF THE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT, AND YOU ARE SEEING APPROXIMATELY TWO POINT SEVEN MILLION IN COS SCHEDULED FOR 23'.

AND KIND OF ON THE PERIPHERY OF DOWNTOWN WE HAVE THE COMMERCIAL CORRIDOR REVITALIZATION, ALSO KNOWN AS THE FIRST STREET BEAUTIFICATION.

THIS REALLY AIMS TO ENHANCE THE FIRST STREET CORRIDOR FROM MILLER ALL THE WAY UP TO MAIN AND STATE HIGHWAY 78.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE DESIGN PHASE AND WORKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BOTTLENECK IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT.

THERE ARE SEVERAL BOTTLENECK IMPROVEMENTS ALSO SLATED TO OCCUR IN THIS SEGMENT OF THE

[00:55:03]

CORRIDOR.

THE INTERDEPENDENCY OF THOSE TWO PROJECTS HAS US ABOUT SIX MONTHS BEHIND WHERE WE WERE HOPING TO BE.

BUT BY THE END OF THIS YEAR, WE WILL BE WRAPPING UP DESIGN AND TRANSITIONING INTO CONSTRUCTION ON THE SOUTH END OF THE CORRIDOR.

REGARDING THE ALIGNMENT FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT, WE WILL BE COMING BACK TO COUNCIL IN EXECUTIVE SESSION TO DISCUSS IT IN MORE SPECIFICS.

AND WITH THAT, I WILL TURN IT OVER TO JUDD.

THANKS, LAURA.

GOOD MORNING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, WE JUST TALKED ABOUT THE FIRST STREET CORRIDOR AND SO JUST EAST OF THERE.

OF COURSE, YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH THE TRIANGLE AREA.

THIS FIRST PROJECT WAS FOR FUNDING ALLOCATED TO ACQUIRING LAND IN THE TRIANGLE AREA FOR REDEVELOPMENT.

YOU'LL NOTICE ON THE AERIAL PHOTO THAT THERE'S A NUMBER OF VACANT PARCELS, UNDEVELOPED PARCELS AND AND THAT REPRESENTS OPPORTUNITY FOR FUTURE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.

SO AS THE FIRE STATION ONE PROJECT MOVES FORWARD, WE'VE, AS YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH, WE'VE PURCHASED LAND IN THIS AREA AND WANT TO CONTINUE TO WITH THOSE LAND ACQUISITION EFFORTS THROUGH THIS AREA REALLY ALL THE WAY OVER TO FIRST STREET TO ACQUIRE AS MUCH AS WE CAN FOR DEVELOPMENT AND REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES.

ONE THING I DID WANT TO NOTE ON THIS PROJECT, IN PARTICULAR AS WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THE FIRE STATION DESIGN.

ONE THING THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE CONSULTANT DO IS PREPARE SOME CONCEPTUAL LAYOUTS FOR THIS WHOLE TRIANGLE AREA.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT NOT ONLY ARE WE KIND OF COORDINATING DEVELOPMENT WITH THE LAYOUT OF THE FIRE STATION, BUT WE WANT TO GET A SENSE FOR HOW MUCH CAPACITY, HOW MUCH, HOW MUCH COULD WE ACTUALLY DEVELOP IN THE LAND THAT WE'VE GOT AVAILABLE.

SO WE REALLY NEED SOME JUST CONCEPTUAL LAYOUT SITE PLANS FOR THIS AREA TO FIND OUT WHAT'S POSSIBLE THERE.

SO THAT EFFORT YOU'LL SEE GETTING UNDERWAY HERE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS.

MOVING TO THE WEST SIDE OF DOWNTOWN, OF COURSE, THE MEDICAL DISTRICT.

AND THIS IS ONE PROJECT THAT WE'VE SORT OF RETITLED, INITIALLY, THIS WAS 2004 BOND MONEY THAT WAS ALLOCATED FOR WALNUT, FOREST, JUPITER AREA STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS, TRYING TO EXCUSE ME, TRYING TO CREATE CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN THE DART STATIONS AND THE MEDICAL DISTRICT.

SO IT'S NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND TOTAL IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS.

IT'S NOT A LOT OF MONEY.

AND SO, FOR EXAMPLE, WE WE INITIALLY DID SOME COST ESTIMATES TO SEE WHAT WE COULD DO WITH THAT ROUGHLY A MILLION DOLLARS JUST TO IMPROVE SORT OF SIDEWALKS ON WALNUT STREET, CONNECTING OVER TO THE DART STATIONS JUST TO IMPROVE THE SIDEWALKS AND STREETSCAPE ALONG WALNUT STREET IN THE MEDICAL DISTRICT ALONE WAS ABOUT THREE MILLION DOLLARS.

AND SO, OF COURSE, THAT'S WELL BEYOND OUR BUDGET.

SO WE SAID, OK, HOW CAN WE FIND SOME LOW COST, HIGH IMPACT IMPROVEMENTS SO WE COULD ACTUALLY DO WITHIN THE DISTRICT IN TERMS OF STREET ESCAPING? AND SO WE'VE WE'VE REFOCUSED AND PREVARIAN, WHO'S OUR DEVELOPMENT PARTNER IN THE MEDICAL DISTRICT, THEY'VE ACTUALLY HIRED A STUDIO OUTSIDE, AND WE'RE PARTNERING IN THAT EFFORT TO LAY OUT SOME REALLY WHAT I WOULD CALL TACTICAL URBANISM TYPE OF IMPROVEMENTS TO THIS AREA.

YOU CAN SEE THE THE FOUR STREETS WITHIN THE MEDICAL DISTRICT.

SO WESTWOOD, WALTER REED, MARIE CURIE AND CLARA BARTON.

THERE'S REALLY SOME KIND OF EXTREME MAKEOVER HOME EDITION TYPE OF IMPROVEMENTS THAT CAN BE DONE IN THE MEDICAL DISTRICT.

AND I'LL KIND OF JUST GIVE YOU A SAMPLING HERE.

THIS IS WHAT OUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TEAM HAS BEEN WORKING ON OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS WITH THE MEDICAL DISTRICT IMPLEMENTATION TEAM LANDSCAPING, SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENTS, MURALS, PUBLIC ART, THOSE TYPE OF IMPROVEMENTS THAT REALLY CAN GIVE A FACELIFT TO THE MEDICAL DISTRICT TO HELP NOT ONLY LEASE UP THE BUILDINGS THAT ARE OUT THERE NOW, BUT REALLY BECOME A CATALYST FOR LARGER SCALE IMPROVEMENTS, ESPECIALLY AGAIN ALONG THOSE FOUR STREETS WITHIN THE MEDICAL DISTRICT.

AND SO WE THINK WE CAN STRETCH THIS NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND PRETTY FAR AND HAVE A PRETTY HIGH IMPACT WITH THOSE DOLLARS.

AND SO THAT'S WHY WE'VE CALLED THIS KIND OF MEDICAL DISTRICT STREETSCAPING AGAIN A FEW.

AND AT SOME POINT WE'LL GET IN FRONT OF YOU AND TALK MORE ABOUT SOME OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS THIS IS JUST WHAT WE'VE THROWN TOGETHER INITIALLY AND BRAINSTORMED WITH STUDIO OUTSIDE.

YOU'LL RECOGNIZE THEIR NAME FROM THE SQUARE PROJECT, OF COURSE.

SO JUST SOME AGAIN, LOW COST, HIGH IMPACT IMPROVEMENTS THAT WE CAN MAKE THERE TO GIVE IT A GIVE IT SOME TLC, GIVE IT A FACELIFT AND HELP WITH THE LEASE UP OF THE BUILDINGS AND BECOME A CATALYST FOR THAT FOR THAT AREA.

THE NEXT PROJECT THIS IS A NEW CIP PROJECT, ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT A NEW PROJECT.

THIS WAS INITIATED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO TRYING TO IMPROVE THE LAVON DRIVE AREA.

[01:00:01]

THIS IS ABOUT A TWO MILE STRETCH OF LAVON, OR 78 ALONG NORTH OF DOWNTOWN, KIND OF A DOWNTOWN GATEWAY AREA.

WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE DESIGN PROCESS WITH THE CONSULTANT.

WE'VE WORKED WITH THE RAILROAD AND COME UP WITH A NUMBER OF LANDSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS THROUGH THIS CORRIDOR, JUST SHY OF TWO MILLION DOLLARS IN IMPROVEMENTS.

WE'D LIKE TO GET STARTED WITH THAT THIS YEAR.

IT'S DELAYED A LITTLE BIT AND THAT'S MOSTLY DUE TO THE RAILROAD.

THEY HAVE THE DESIGN IN HAND.

THEY'RE REVIEWING IT.

GIVING US SOME FEEDBACK, AND WE'VE HAD GOOD COMMUNICATION THERE.

IT JUST TAKES A LONG TIME, SO WE'RE WORKING THROUGH THOSE THROUGH THOSE CHALLENGES, BUT EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD TO MOVE FORWARD.

AGAIN JUST SOME OF THESE IMAGES HERE JUST GIVE YOU A SENSE FOR WHAT WE'RE SHOOTING FOR ALONG THAT CORRIDOR.

I'VE GOT A COUPLE DESIGN FACTORS.

OF COURSE, YOU'VE GOT THE TRANSMISSION LINES, YOU'VE GOT THE RAILROAD.

AND SO WHILE WE WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE COME IN HERE WITH A MULTI-USE PATH OR TRAIL, THAT'S NOT A POSSIBILITY.

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOME SMALLER ORNAMENTAL TREES THROUGH THE CORRIDOR TO MAKE ENHANCEMENTS.

AND I THINK WHAT THEY'VE COME UP WITH IS WILL END UP BEING A REALLY GOOD DESIGN AND NOT ONLY HELP BEAUTIFY THE CORRIDOR, BUT REALLY JUST CREATE A NICE ENVIRONMENT DRIVING INTO DOWNTOWN.

SO AGAIN INCLUDED ALL THE PLANS IN HERE.

IT'S HARD TO SEE KIND OF EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING AT, BUT ORNAMENTAL TREES, SHRUBS, SOME HARDSCAPE, AT THE INTERSECTIONS, THERE'S GOING TO BE ENHANCED IMPROVEMENTS THAT WILL LOOK GOOD AS WELL.

ONE NOTE ON THE FUNDING SIDE, WE ARE PROPOSING TO USE SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS FROM THE TREE MITIGATION FUND FOR THIS PROJECT.

PUT THOSE DOLLARS TO USE THAT.

WE'VE BEEN WE'VE BEEN SAVING UP OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS.

THESE LAST TWO PROJECTS ARE JUST OUR GENERAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BUCKETS OF FUNDING.

THIS FIRST ONE IS MORE BROAD IN USE THE SECOND ONE'S REALLY FOR LAND ACQUISITION.

JUST GENERAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND REDEVELOPMENT.

THIS IS THE BUCKET OF MONEY THAT THE VOTERS APPROVED IN 2019 FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT USES.

THIS WILL CAN BE USED FOR LAND ACQUISITION, FAÃ♪ADE IMPROVEMENTS, ANY KIND OF INCENTIVES WE COME UP WITH FOR PROJECTS, CATALYST AREA IMPROVEMENTS, ETC.

THIS IS THE MONEY THAT WE USE TO ACQUIRE PROPERTY WITHIN THE MEDICAL DISTRICT THIS PAST YEAR, AND ONE NOTES AGAIN, WE'RE KIND OF ADDING TO THIS BUCKET OF MONEY, ALTHOUGH IT'S REALLY CONSOLIDATING WHAT RESOURCES WE HAVE OUT THERE.

BUT YOU'LL SEE THAT FROM THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT RESERVE FUND.

WE'RE TRANSFERRING TWO AND A HALF MILLION INTO THIS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND REDEVELOPMENT CIP PROJECT.

IT'S MONEY THAT'S OUT THERE THAT CAN BE USED FOR THE SAME THING.

WE'RE JUST KIND OF PUTTING IT IN THE SAME BUCKET.

AND THEN ON THE LAND ACQUISITION AND ASSEMBLAGE PROGRAM AGAIN, 2019 PACKAGE, ALONG WITH SOME 2004 BOND FUNDS, MAKE UP THIS.

THIS TOTAL PROGRAM HYPERMART SITE WAS PURCHASED USING THESE FUNDS IN THE SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

AND AS WE CONTINUE TO ASSEMBLE LAND, I TALKED ABOUT THE TRIANGLE AREA AND FIRST STREETS WILL DRAW ON THIS PROGRAM AS WELL, ALONG WITH MANY OTHER OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE'RE PURSUING AS WELL.

SO I THINK THAT KIND OF WRAPS UP THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS.

FOR 2022 WE'RE LOOKING AT ABOUT TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS IN PROJECTS.

AND THEN SCHEDULE WISE, A LOT OF THAT'S FRONT LOADED.

LAURA TALKED ABOUT THE DOWNTOWN PROJECT, WHICH WILL OCCUR OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS, AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND LAND ACQUISITION WILL ALWAYS BE ONGOING.

SO HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR THIS SECTION? I SEE NONE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

AND COUNCIL, I'D LIKE TO GO AND GET THROUGH ONE MORE PRESENTATION AND WE'LL TAKE A SHORT RECESS, SO NEXT WE WILL HAVE LIBRARY.

MORNING, MR. MAYOR.

COUNCIL MR. BRADFORD.

I'M KAREN ARCHIBALD, DIRECTOR OF OUR LIBRARY SYSTEM HERE IN GARLAND.

SO FOR OUR FIRST PROJECT IS THE EXPANSION AND THE RELOCATION OF THE WALNUT CREEK BRANCH LIBRARY AT HOLLABAUGH.

THIS PROJECT IS FUNDED FROM THE 2019 BOND AND WITH AN OUTDOOR CONNECTED PLAZA THAT'S FUNDED THROUGH ARPA FUNDS.

THE PLAZA WILL HELP ADDRESS SOME GRADE, DRAINAGE, AND FIRE LANE ISSUES BETWEEN THE TWO DIFFERENT BUILDINGS.

KAREN, CAN I HAVE YOU PULL THE MICROPHONE A LITTLE CLOSER TO YOU? SOME OF OUR I SAY IT'S MAINLY FOR OUR FOLKS THAT ARE ON ZOOM.

[01:05:03]

THANK YOU.

SORRY.

OH NO PROBLEM.

OVER THE LAST YEAR, OUR TEAM HAS WORKED ON THE SCHEMATIC DESIGN PORTION OF THE LIBRARY.

CURRENTLY, WE'RE ABOUT SEVENTY FIVE PERCENT COMPLETE ON THAT ENDEAVOR.

AND THEN THE IMAGE ON THE SCREEN KIND OF GIVES YOU A BIRD'S EYE VIEW INTO THE INTERIOR LAYOUT OF THE NEW FACILITY AND ITS CONNECTION OVERALL IN THE SITE BETWEEN THE EXISTING HOLLABAUGH REC CENTER, WHERE THE CONNECTIVE ART PLAZA IS PROPOSED TO GO AND THEN THE NEW GYM.

NEXT IS THE MODERNIZATIONS AND UPGRADES PROJECT FOR OUR NORTH GARLAND BRANCH LIBRARY.

THIS PROJECT IS FUNDED THROUGH ARPA AND SCHEDULED TO BEGIN IN 2023.

WORK AT NORTH WILL FOCUS ON UPGRADING AND EXPANDING INFRASTRUCTURE TO PROVIDE MORE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE PUBLIC AND REPLACE THE EXTERIOR BUILDING SOUND THAT GIVES US PROBLEMS ON A REGULAR BASIS.

THE PROJECT WILL ALSO ADDRESS SOME SPACE NEEDS TO BETTER SERVE ONE OF THE LARGEST GROUPS THAT COMES TO THIS LIBRARY AND THOSE ARE TEENS FROM WEBB MIDDLE SCHOOL THAT'S RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET.

NEXT IS OUR LIBRARY WITHOUT WALLS PROJECT, WHICH ARE OUR LIBRARY KIOSKS.

CURRENTLY, WE HAVE TWO SITES SELECTED THE FIRST ONE AT LON WYNNE PARK AND THEN THE DOWNTOWN CITY HALL SITE.

INSTALLATION SHOULD BE COMPLETE BY THE END OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR, AND INSTALLATION IS BEING DRIVEN BY BOTH THE LON WYNNE PARK UPGRADES PROJECT FOR THAT FACILITY OR PLACE SITE, AND THEN ALSO FOR FOR DOWNTOWN THE CENTRAL LIBRARY PROJECT IS DRIVING THAT OVERALL SCHEDULE.

WHICH BRINGS US TO CENTRAL LIBRARY.

THE NEXT PROJECTS TAKE PLACE AT THE CENTRAL LIBRARY.

THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM INCLUDES SCOPES FROM THREE SPECIFIC PROJECTS THE CENTRAL LIBRARY, LIFE AND SAFETY PROJECT, FACILITIES UPGRADE PROJECT AND THEN THE MODERNIZATION AND UPGRADES PROJECT, WHICH IS THE BOND FUNDS.

THESE PROJECTS ARE BEING SCHEDULED TOGETHER TO REDUCE SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS TO THE PUBLIC AND STAFF AND TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME GRANT OPPORTUNITIES TO ADDRESS ELECTRICAL IMPROVEMENTS TO THE LIBRARY.

AS MANY OF YOU REMEMBER, WE WENT THROUGH A PROCESS AND JUST HAD OUR LIBRARY MASTER PLAN UPDATED AND APPROVED BY YOU LAST FEBRUARY.

SO WE TOOK FEEDBACK AND INPUT THAT THE PUBLIC PROVIDED TO US THROUGH THAT PROCESS.

ALSO, FEEDBACK THAT YOU ALL PROVIDED THROUGH THAT PROCESS.

AND WE TOOK ALL OF THAT FEEDBACK TO MAKE A KEY LIST OF OBJECTIVES THAT WE WANTED TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS WITH THE RENOVATION OF THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT.

THOSE KEY OBJECTIVES INCLUDE PROVIDING MORE AMENITIES FOR THE PUBLIC, IMPROVING PHYSICAL ACCESSIBILITY TO TO THE LIBRARY, INCREASING VISIBILITY BY OPENING UP THE EXTERIOR OF THE LIBRARY, PROVIDING BETTER CONNECTIONS TO OUR NEIGHBORS AROUND CENTRAL BETWEEN HERITAGE CROSSING THE APARTMENTS AND ANY FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS, AND CREATE A MORE FLEXIBLE AND ACCESSIBLE PUBLIC COMMUNITY ROOM SPACE.

OUR CURRENT REDESIGN FEATURES NEW OUTDOOR PROGRAMING AND READING AREAS AROUND THE LIBRARY, AND IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THAT WAS THE REQUEST FOR OUTDOOR PROGRAMING AREAS WAS THE NUMBER ONE MOST REQUESTED ADDITION TO LIBRARY FACILITIES BY GARLAND RESIDENCE WHEN WE WENT THROUGH THE SURVEY AND THIS WAS PRE-PANDEMIC.

ALSO INCLUDED IN THE CURRENT REDESIGN BUDGET A MORE INTERIOR USE SPACES AND A SUBDIVIDED COMMUNITY ROOM SPACE SUBDIVIDING THE COMMUNITY ROOM WILL ALLOW US TO ACCOMMODATE FOR MORE COMMUNITY GROUPS TO USE THE SPACE WHILE PRESERVING AN AREA FOR SMALLER LIBRARY PROGRAMS. SO THIS SLIDE HELPS TO SHOW SOME OF THE CHANGES TO THE BUILDING THAT WILL HELP IMPROVE PHYSICAL ACCESSIBILITY AND ADDRESS SOME SAFETY CONCERNS.

THIS INCLUDES MOVING THE MAIN ENTRANCE, WHICH IS THE BLUE BOX DOWN TOWARDS THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN TO THE WEST LOT OF THE WHERE THE BULK OF PARKING IS LOCATED, WITH A VISIBLE STOREFRONT ENTRANCE REMAINING ON AUSTIN STREET, ALSO PROVIDING A VEHICULAR DROP OFF AREA CLOSE TO THE MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE LIBRARY, RELOCATING THE COMMUNITY ROOM, WHICH IS OUTLINED IN YELLOW FROM THE FAR BACK OF THE CURRENT FACILITY, BRINGING IT TOWARDS THE

[01:10:01]

FRONT OF THE FACILITY TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS MUCH EASIER AND CLOSER TO THE THE MAIN PARKING LOT.

AND THEN ADDITIONALLY, WE WILL RELOCATE ALL OF THE ADULT SERVICES UP TO THE MAIN FLOOR.

SO THIS INCLUDES COMPUTERS, REFERENCE MATERIALS, WORLD LANGUAGES, COLLECTION PERIODICALS, ALL OF THOSE THINGS THAT WE HAVE DOWNSTAIRS, JUST MOVING IT UP TO THE THE MAIN LEVEL.

SOME OF THE ITEMS ON THIS SLIDE, MAINLY THE ENTRANCE, IS ADDED SCOPE TO THE PROJECT.

LOOKING AT THE FIRST FLOOR, HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE PROPOSED INTERIOR UPGRADES THROUGHOUT THE LIBRARY, INCLUDING CARPET, PAINT, TECHNOLOGIES, SERVICE POINTS AND FURNISHINGS.

AND BASED ON FEEDBACK THAT WE RECEIVED FROM OUR ARCHITECT AND WITH CURRENT SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES, WE BELIEVE A SCOPE CORRECTION OF ABOUT ONE ONE IN A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS IS NEEDED TO ADEQUATELY FUND FURNISHINGS, FF&E AND TECHNOLOGY ON THE MAIN LEVEL.

ORIGINALLY, WE WENT THROUGH A PROCESS AND WE WERE GOING TO REUSE, RETROFIT A LOT OF THE SHELVING AND FURNISHINGS THAT ARE ON THE MAIN LEVEL.

BUT OUR ARCHITECT DID SOME RESEARCH, GOT SOME PRICING AND ADVISED AGAINST THAT.

IT ACTUALLY COSTS MORE TO DO SOME OF THOSE RETROFITS WITH SOME OF THOSE PIECES OF SHELVING AND UPGRADE SOME OF THE PIECES OF FURNITURE THAT WE HAVE BEING CUT, RECOVERED, REPAINTED, REPAIRED THAN TO BUY NEW.

AND THIS IS ONE OF THE MORE EXCITING PARTS OF THE PROJECT TO ME, THOUGH, I THINK ALL OF THE PROPOSED CHANGES ARE PRETTY EXCITING.

SO IF WE MOVE EVERYTHING FROM DOWNSTAIRS THAT'S CURRENTLY THERE, THE ADULT COLLECTION UPSTAIRS, WE GET TO REIMAGINE THE DOWNSTAIRS.

AND WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING TO DO IS TO CREATE A VERY UNIQUE, SAFE, SPECIAL PLACE JUST FOR KIDS.

SO IT'S A CONTAINED AREA FOR KIDS TO BE ABLE TO BE CHILDREN, WHICH MEANS BEING A LITTLE BIT LOUD, BEING A LITTLE BIT NOISY, BEING A LITTLE BIT MESSY, BUT ALSO BEING ABLE TO HAVE SOME VERY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGIES AND HANDS ON MANIPULATIVES FOR LEARNING, WHICH IS ONE OF THE BEST WAYS A CHILD CAN CAN LEARN.

THERE IS A SCOPE CORRECTION FOR THAT FF&E AND TECHNOLOGY ESTIMATED AT ABOUT SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND.

SO JUST TOUCHING ON THE LIFE AND SAFETY PORTION OF THE PROJECT, AS MANY OF YOU REMEMBERED, THE CENTRAL LIFE AND SAFETY PROJECT WAS INCLUDED IN THE 2018 CIP SCOPE A WAS COMPLETED IN 2020 AND SCOPE B WAS POSTPONED AT THAT TIME.

AND THAT WAS SCOPE B IS ALL THE WORK THAT WAS BEING DONE ABOVE THE CEILING BETWEEN DUCTWORK, LIGHTING, CEILING GRIDS, INSTALLING A SPRINKLER SYSTEM AND THOSE TYPES OF THINGS WOULD CREATE SERVICE IMPACTS FOR HAVING TO CLOSE AT CENTRAL.

AT THE TIME THAT THE DECISION WAS MADE TO POSTPONE, THE PROJECT WAS KNOWN TO BE UNDERFUNDED AND THAT ADDITIONAL ESCALATION WOULD BE INCURRED BY POSTPONING.

SO TWO FACTORS DROVE THAT DECISION.

ONE IF WE COMBINE THIS WITH THE BOND OR THIS WORK WITH THE BOND, WE WANTED TO MINIMIZE SERVICE DISRUPTIONS TO THE PUBLIC AND TO STAFF.

AND THEN WE ALSO WANTED TO TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BENEFIT FROM ONE MAJOR COORDINATED EFFORT INSTEAD OF PIECEMEALING THE PROJECT OVER THE COURSE OF TIME AND ESCALATION AND COST CORRECTION IS ONE POINT ONE MILLION.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED A LOT OF WORK, BUT WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO GO, SO THAT'S PROPOSED DETAILED DESIGN WORK AND BIDDING WILL TAKE PLACE IN 2022, WITH CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN EARLY 2023.

AND THEN THIS CHART HELPS BREAK DOWN THE NEW FUNDING REQUEST THAT WE HAVE FOR THE CENTRAL LIBRARY PROJECTS THROUGH THIS CIP.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, WE HAVE A LOT GOING ON AT THE LIBRARY WITH OUR MAIN FOCUS FOR 2022 BEING WALNUT CREEK, OUR KIOSKS, AND THE CENTRAL LIBRARY.

AND WE'RE HOPING TO SPEND A LITTLE OVER FIVE MILLION DOLLARS IN 2022 FOR GARLAND LIBRARY.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

ALL RIGHT.

LOOKS LIKE WE'VE GOT A FEW FOR YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

HOW ARE WHERE ARE WE AT ON THE WALL STREET? I MEAN, WELL WALNUT CREEK GREAT LIBRARY.

WE'VE BEEN WORKING WITH PARKS.

WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A DELAY WORKING THROUGH SOME DRAINAGE ISSUES WITH THAT

[01:15:03]

PROJECT.

BUT WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE EXTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS AND THE INTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS ON THAT PROJECT.

SO WE'RE ABOUT SEVENTY FIVE PERCENT COMPLETE ON SCHEMATIC DESIGN AND HOPE TO REALLY PUSH THAT IN THE NEXT YEAR OR SO.

WHEN DO YOU THINK WE CAN START CONSTRUCTION? PROBABLY THE BEGINNING OF 2023 WOULD BE MY BEST ESTIMATE, WITH CONSTRUCTION ENDING AT THE END OF 2023.

I THINK THERE'S STILL GOING TO BE SOME PAYOUTS IN 2024 BUT, OK THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING.

I JUST WANT TO QUESTION ON YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM IN YOUR.

DOES THAT INCLUDE YOUR CAMERAS? DOES THAT INCLUDE THE PARAMETERS OF THESE? THESE OR IS IT ONLY INTERNAL INSIDE? IS THE SYSTEM THAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT AS FAR AS SECURITY CAMERAS.

AND I ASKED THAT QUESTION NOW THAT LIBRARIES ARE UNDER ATTACK.

SO MY QUESTION IS, DO YOU OR DOES IT INCLUDE PERIMETER CAMERAS OR SIMPLY INTERIOR CAMERAS? WE HAVEN'T HAD A DETAILED DISCUSSION ABOUT THAT PART OF THE PROJECT YET.

WE'LL BE WORKING WITH A CONSULTANT THAT I'M SURE WE'LL HAVE A COMBINATION OF DIFFERENT SAFETY FACTORS.

BUT WE'LL WORK WITH THE THE DESIGN TEAM WITH JENNY HOLIDAYS TEAM TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE INSTALLING WHAT NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED FOR ALL THE FACILITIES.

OK, OK, OK.

I'M JUST I JUST SUGGEST THAT AS SOMETHING FOR DISCUSSION MOVING FORWARD WITH ALL OF THE LIBRARY PROJECTS.

ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

WELL, KAREN, THIS IS ALL VERY EXCITING.

ALL THESE PROJECTS ARE ARE THINGS THAT OUR RESIDENTS ARE VERY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT SEEING OUR LIBRARY SERVICES IMPROVED, MODERNIZED THE WALNUT CREEK BRANCH.

I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT SEEING THAT INNOVATIVE PAIRING OF A REC CENTER AND A LIBRARY.

SO THAT'S ALL GREAT.

I HAD A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS RELATING TO TO CENTRAL.

YOU MENTIONED THE SAFETY ASPECTS BRIEFLY ABOUT HAVING THE CHILDREN'S SECTION MOVED TO THE LOWER FLOOR.

CAN YOU ENLARGE ON THAT? WHY? THAT'S SAFER THAN THAN WHERE IT IS NOW? SURE.

BY MOVING ALL THE CHILDREN'S SERVICES DOWNSTAIRS, IT CREATES A CONTAINED PLACE FOR KIDS.

IT'S AWAY FROM THE FRONT ENTRANCE.

WE HAVE MUCH BETTER CONTROL OVER WHO IS ENTERING THAT SITE.

IT REDUCES THE NUMBER OF ADULTS WHO MAY NOT HAVE KIDS WHO MAY BE THERE FOR NEFARIOUS REASONS.

IT PROVIDES RESTROOMS ALSO FOR CHILDREN AND JUST HELPS US TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL HAVE MUCH BETTER CONTROL OVER WHO IS IN THAT AREA, WHO IS AROUND OUR CHILDREN AND WHAT OUR CHILDREN ARE EXPOSED TO.

OKAY.

AND I REALLY LIKE THAT.

AND IT'S THE SAME REASON I LIKE HAVING SOME OF OUR PLAYGROUNDS HAVE HAVE FENCING AROUND THEM FOR MANY OF THE SAME CONCERNS.

IT CREATES SOME KIND OF A BARRIER THAT KEEPS THE KIDS MORE EASILY CONTAINED AND MONITORED.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

THE THE OUTDOOR EXPANSION THERE, I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT THAT WAS THE NUMBER ONE REQUEST EVEN BEFORE THE PANDEMIC, BUT CERTAINLY SINCE THE PANDEMIC, I AM A THOUSAND PERCENT IN SUPPORT OF OF EXPANDING ALL OF OUR OUTDOOR FACILITIES AND AMENITIES FOR GARLAND CITIZENS BECAUSE WE'VE FOUND THAT THAT'S SOMETHING THESE LAST TWO YEARS THAT'S BEEN HEAVILY USED AND HEAVILY DESIRED.

SO I'M EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

THE HAVING THE ENTRANCE MOVED, THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN AWKWARD ENTRANCE THERE AT THE FRONT BECAUSE THERE IS NO PARKING AND YOU'RE TAKING YOUR LIFE IN YOUR HANDS WITH THE STREET.

SO I LIKE VERY MUCH SUPPORT HAVING IT MOVED AROUND WHERE IT'S DIRECTLY OFF THE PARKING LOT, WHERE THERE'S A DROP OFF.

YOU KNOW, I HAVE AN ELDERLY FATHER IN LAW WHO JUST THERE IS NO GOOD PLACE TO DROP HIM OFF THERE.

SO I LIKE THE THOUGHT THAT WENT INTO ALL OF THIS, A GREAT DEAL.

AND I DID WANT TO ASK.

I HAD HEARD A STATISTIC I FOUND INTERESTING AND YOU MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE IT, BUT THAT IN LOOKING AT ALL OF OUR FACILITIES IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA, THAT THE LIBRARY WAS

[01:20:02]

THE NUMBER ONE DRAW FOR FEET ON THE STREET, GETTING PEOPLE TO THE DOWNTOWN AREA.

IS THAT IS THAT TRUE AND IS THAT SOMETHING YOU HAVE ANY KIND OF A NUMBER FOR? I CAN TELL YOU ON ANY GIVEN YEAR, WE HAVE ANYWHERE BETWEEN A QUARTER OF A MILLION AND THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE THAT WILL COME TO THE CENTRAL LIBRARY, VARYING, YOU KNOW, DEPENDING ON WHAT'S GOING ON.

SO WE DO SEE A GOOD NUMBER OF PEOPLE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO COME.

JUST TALKING TO YOUR POINT ABOUT THE SENIORS AND PEOPLE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES IN THE PARKING LOT, IT TAKES A MAJOR EFFORT FOR SOME OF OUR PATRONS TO BE ABLE TO PARK, GATHER THEIR BELONGINGS, WALK THE DISTANCE TO THE CURRENT ENTRANCE AND THEN MAKE IT TO WHEREVER THEY'RE TRYING TO MAKE IT INTO THE FACILITY.

BUT OK.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, I SUPPORT ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND I REALLY, YOU KNOW, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT WITH ESCALATING SUPPLY CHAIN PROBLEMS AND ESCALATING COSTS.

WE'RE ALL LOOKING FOR WAYS THAT WE CAN REDUCE COSTS ON EVERY SIDE.

BUT AFTER LOOKING AT THESE PLANS, I DON'T SEE ANYTHING THAT I WOULD BE WILLING LIGHTLY TO GIVE UP.

THIS DOESN'T SEEM EXTRAVAGANT.

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING FRIVOLOUS BUILT INTO THESE PLANS.

THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT WE HAVE HEARD FROM GARLAND RESIDENTS THAT THEY WANT AND NEED IN OUR LIBRARY SERVICES.

AS YOU KNOW, THEY SERVE A LOT OF THE THE PEOPLE IN OUR CITY WHO THAT THEY NEED THAT RESOURCE, THEY NEED THAT RESOURCE.

SO, ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN THANK YOU, MAYOR.

GREAT PROGRAM, VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT, PARTICULARLY THE KIOSKS AND I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR WORKING WITH PARKS SO CLOSELY, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE CHALLENGES, I THINK IN THE CITY OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAS BEEN BREAKING DOWN SILOS LIKE THAT TO GET OUR DEPARTMENTS WORKING TOGETHER TO CREATE THESE GREAT SYNERGIES.

AND I THINK, YOU KNOW, I'M STILL THRILLED ABOUT YOU, ABOUT US COMING UP WITH LON WYNNE PARK IS A PLACE FOR THIS KIOSK.

IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT FOR A PART OF THE COMMUNITY THAT'S REALLY UNDERSERVED WITH LIBRARY SERVICES, BUT COMBINING IT ALSO WITH THE PARK AND PROGRAMING, I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT.

AND AND FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW, I GUESS KNOW.

AND THESE KIOSKS ARE MORE THAN JUST BOOKS THEY PROVIDE.

WE'RE ALSO GOING TO HAVE OTHER THINGS IN THEM.

AND IF YOU CAN FIT IT INTO THE PREDETERMINED SPACE IT CAN HAVE, AND IT'S INTENDING TO HAVE ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS FOR FAMILIES AND PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO CHECK OUT AND USE AT LON WYNNE PARK, ON THE SQUARE, AND THEN BE ABLE TO RETURN AT THAT KIOSK BEFORE THEY LEAVE.

THAT'S GREAT.

AND THE ONE SO THE KIOSK THAT'S GOING TO BE DOWNTOWN.

IS THAT ON THE SQUARE ITSELF OR IS IT? NO, SIR.

IT'S PROPOSED TO BE KIND OF AT THE CORNER OF, OH MAN, DIDN'T MEAN TO PUT YOUR SPOT IS THAT RIGHT? RIGHT OUTSIDE CITY HALL HERE.

SO WE MIGHT GET MORE TRAFFIC AT CITY HALL.

AND IT'LL ALSO BE GOOD ALTHOUGH NOT AN UNDERSERVED AREA, IT KIND OF WILL BE AN UNDERSERVED AREA FOR A PERIOD OF TIME WHILE WE'RE DOING THE CENTRAL LIBRARY WORK.

YES, SIR.

OK, WELL, THAT'S GREAT.

AND AND I LOOK FORWARD TO ALL OF THAT STUFF AND HOPEFULLY THESE THINGS WILL TAKE OFF AND WE'LL SEE MORE OF THEM AS WE KIND OF MOVE FORWARD WITH LIBRARY MASTER PLAN BUT BUT GREAT JOB.

VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

VERY GOOD.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR ADDRESSING THE SIGN ISSUES AT NORTH.

SOMETIMES I THINK YOU'RE GIVING ME A READING COMPREHENSION TEST WHERE I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHICH WORD, AND I THINK I EVEN SAW SERVICE TRUCKS OUT THERE THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS WORKING ON IT.

SO I KNOW IT'S BEEN AN ONGOING CHALLENGE.

SO WITH THAT, I THINK WE WILL TAKE A SHORT RECESS.

THANK YOU.

LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY BACK AT 10:05, PLEASE 10:05.

IT'S ABOUT THAT TIME.

HERE WE ARE BACK FROM RECESS.

THIS IS WE'RE COMING BACK FROM RECESS.

WE ARE HERE FOR A SPECIAL WORK SESSION ON JANUARY 22D FOR OUR CIP PROGRAM.

AND I THINK WE'VE GOT EVERYBODY PRESENT WHO IS GOING TO BE PRESENT FOR THE MOMENT.

OUR NEXT PRESENTATION IS HEALTH.

GOOD MORNING, MAYOR COUNCIL MR. BRADFORD.

I'M DIANA BEELER.

THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR.

[INAUDIBLE] OK.

THIS PROJECT PROVIDES ARPA FUNDING FOR THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW PUBLIC HEALTH

[01:25:01]

CLINIC LOCATED AT 206 CARVER STREET.

AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE MAP, THE LOCATION OF THE CLINIC IS IN THE CARVER COMPLEX THAT START RIGHT THERE, BASICALLY CENTRALLY LOCATED IN GARLAND.

THE NEW CLINIC WILL REPLACE MODULAR BUILDINGS THAT ARE CURRENTLY AGING AND GOING THE EXACT SAME LOCATION WHERE THEY'RE AT, AND THE ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION OF THE CLINIC WILL BE WILL START IN MARCH OF 2023.

I JUST TOOK A FEW PICTURES.

THE TOP PICTURES ARE A PICTURE OF THE LOBBY AT THE CURRENT CLINIC.

JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE AMOUNT OF PATIENTS WE SEE, IT'S CROWDED AND THIS WAS PRE-COVID.

WE DO HAVE GLASS IN PLACE NOW.

AND THE BOTTOM PICTURES ARE OF THE CURRENT CLINIC, BASICALLY ON THE CORNER OF CARVER AND HOPKINS STREET.

AND IT IS IT'S A BIG CORNER LOT THERE THAT THE THAT THE BUILDING IS LOCATED ON.

THE NEW FACILITY WILL PROVIDE ADEQUATE SPACE FOR STAFF WHO ARE CURRENTLY SPREAD ACROSS TWO BUILDINGS AT THE CARVER COMPLEX, AS WELL AS AN APPROPRIATE WAITING ROOMS AND TREATMENT ROOMS FOR OVER THE FIFTEEN THOUSAND PATIENTS WE SEE ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.

AND IN ADDITION, WE'VE ADDED THE COVID 19 VACCINES WHERE WE'RE UTILIZING THE CARVER TWO BUILDING TO PROVIDE VACCINES THERE, AND THIS WILL GET US ALL IN ONE BUILDING ON A CENTRALLY LOCATED ON THAT CORNER LOT.

THIS SUMMARY OF THE CIP PROJECTS FOR THE DESIGN WILL BE FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND I'M OPEN FOR QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS PORTION? I SEE NONE.

THANK YOU.

NEXT, WE WILL MOVE TO FIRE, CHIEF.

GOOD MORNING, MR. MAYOR.

MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT TO YOU TODAY ON THE FIRE DEPARTMENT'S CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

GET MY POINTER IN THE RIGHT PLACE HERE.

THE FIRST ITEMS THAT WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS ARE THE REPLACEMENT AMBULANCE PROGRAM THAT WE CONTINUE TO DO.

THIS IS AN ONGOING PROGRAM.

LAST YEAR, YOU HAD APPROVED FOUR NEW AMBULANCES.

WE STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN THEM.

WE STILL DON'T HAVE DELIVERY DATES.

WE CAN'T FIND [INAUDIBLE].

SO THOSE FOUR PLUS TWO MORE THIS YEAR ARE INCLUDED IN OUR CIP FOR THIS YEAR.

SO YOU CAN KIND OF SEE ON THE SCHEDULE THERE THE FUTURE PURCHASES.

WE DO THEM TWO TO THREE AT A TIME TO TRY TO KEEP EVERYTHING BALANCED YEAR TO YEAR.

NEXT IS A PROPOSAL FOR NEW CARDIAC MONITORS.

THE CARDIAC MONITORS THAT WE HAVE ARE WELL OVER 10 YEARS NOW.

FOR THE MOST PART, WE'VE HAD TO PURCHASE A COUPLE OF REPLACEMENTS THROUGH THE YEARS.

THE TECHNOLOGY IS CONTINUING TO ADVANCE WITH CARDIAC MONITORING AND THE INTEROPERABILITY WITH OTHER DEVICES.

SOME OF YOU MAY REMEMBER YEARS AGO WE DID THE LUCAS DEVICE, WHICH IS A AN AUTOMATIC CPR MACHINE, IF YOU WILL.

SOME OF THE MONITORS PROVIDE FEEDBACK TO THE LUCAS DEVICE AND THE LUCAS DEVICE TO THE MONITOR, SO WE ARE LOOKING TO REPLACE ALL OF THOSE MONITORS IN ONE FELL SWOOP.

SO THAT PROJECT IS ON HERE AS WELL.

NEXT IS ONE OF THE BOND PROJECTS.

THIS IS RELOCATION OF FIRE STATION NUMBER SIX.

YOU'RE VERY FAMILIAR WITH THIS PROJECT.

WE VISITED MANY TIMES.

WE ARE STILL IN THE DESIGN PROCESS ON THIS PROJECT.

WE HOPE TO COMPLETE THAT IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS AND GO OUT TO BID FOR CONSTRUCTION SHOULD BEGIN.

WE'RE CALLING IT EARLY 22, BUT IT'S PROBABLY GOING TO BE CLOSE TO SECOND QUARTER OF 22' WITH A COMPLETION IN LATE 23' ON FIRE STATION NUMBER SIX.

ON THIS PROJECT, WE DID SEE SOME SCOPE CORRECTIONS.

I KNOW THAT ALLYSON TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT THIS MORNING AND SHOWED SOME OF THE PROJECTS WITH SCOPE CORRECTIONS.

SOME OF THE CORRECTIONS WE'RE LOOKING AT ARE ENHANCED [INAUDIBLE] HANDLING DUE TO LESSONS LEARNED WITH THE CURRENT PANDEMIC.

CANCER RISK REDUCTION.

[01:30:01]

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS CONTINUING TO EVOLVE.

THINGS LIKE FIRE STATIONS HAVE ALWAYS HAD EQUIPMENT, DECONTAMINATION AREAS TO CLEAN UP OUR MEDICAL EQUIPMENT AND STUFF.

THIS FIRE STATION WILL ACTUALLY HAVE HUMAN DECONTAMINATION AREAS AS WELL, SO WE'LL PASS THROUGH FROM A HOT ZONE BEING THE APPARATUS ROOM INTO A WARM ZONE WHERE WE'LL DECON OUR PEOPLE AND THEN THEY'LL GO INTO THE FIRE STATION FROM THERE BACK INTO CONSIDERED THE COLD ZONE.

AND THEN ONE OTHER SCOPE CORRECTION VERSUS OUR LAST FIRE STATION WITH THE FIRE STATION NUMBER FIVE IS WE'RE NOW REQUIRED TO HAVE A SAFE SHELTER ROOM, SO IT HAS TO BE SUFFICIENTLY SIZED FOR ALL OCCUPANTS, AS WELL AS RESTROOM FACILITIES IN YOUR SAFE SHELTER.

SO THAT'S ANOTHER SCOPE CORRECTION ON THAT PROJECT.

FIRE STATION NUMBER ONE, YOU'VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT THAT ALREADY TODAY ON THE TRIANGLE AREA AND TRYING TO GET THE RIGHT PLACEMENT FOR IT DOWN THERE.

DETAILED DESIGN WILL PICK UP IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2022 CONSTRUCTION ANTICIPATED TO BE COMPLETE BY LATE 24'.

THIS ONE ALSO HAD SOME OF THOSE SIMILAR SAME SCOPE CORRECTIONS AS FIRE STATION NUMBER SIX .

FIRE STATION NUMBER SEVEN.

THIS IS THE ONE THAT WILL BE NEAR FIREWHEEL AND PLEASANT VALLEY.

IT'LL BE CLOSELY RESEMBLE FIRE STATION NUMBER SIX.

ANY TIME YOU'RE BUILDING FIRE STATIONS, YOU LEARN A LESSON THE DAY THAT YOU OPEN IT AND SO YOU CORRECT IT ON THE NEXT ONE, THAT'S SIMILAR TO IT.

SO WE'LL MAKE THOSE CORRECTIONS AS WE COME ACROSS THEM.

THIS PROJECT IS SLATED FOR ABOUT THREE POINT EIGHT MILLION ON ARPA FUNDS TO TO HELP WITH THE SCOPE CORRECTIONS ON IT.

NEXT IS THE FAST BUILDING RENOVATION AND UPGRADE.

THIS BUILDING OPENED IN APPROXIMATELY 2008.

MOST OF THE TECHNOLOGY AND THINGS IN IT HAVE BEEN THERE SINCE THAT DAY.

OUR CLASSROOM CONFERENCE ROOMS, YOU KNOW, AS MOST OF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THERE AND SEEN THE THE THE BEAUTIFUL CLASSROOM SPACES THAT WE HAVE, THE ISSUE WE'RE HAVING IS THE TECHNOLOGY THAT'S IN THERE IS 2008 TECHNOLOGY AND WE'RE STARTING TO EXPERIENCE BREAKDOWNS AND SO SO PEOPLE WILL RESERVE THE ROOM TO GET THERE.

THE PROJECTOR WON'T WORK.

THE SOUND SYSTEM WON'T WORK.

CAMERAS WON'T WORK.

SO ON AND SO FORTH.

SO PART OF THIS IS TO REDO ALL OF THAT MULTIMEDIA SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS.

OUR OUR LOBBY AREA IS BEAUTIFUL AND OPEN.

IT HAS BEEN POINTED OUT TO US THAT WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF SECURITY ON THAT BUILDING, AND WE PROBABLY NEED TO LIMIT ACCESS BETTER THAN WE DO.

SO WE'RE LOOKING FOR SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS IN THE FRONT LOBBY AREA BY THE RECEPTION DESK WE'LL CLOSE THAT AREA OFF AND CLOSE THE AREA THAT LEADS TO THE COMMAND STAFF AREA.

IT'LL BE RESTRICTED ACCESS TO THOSE THOSE AREAS.

ALONG WITH THAT IS THE EXTENSION OF THE EIGHT BAY BUILDING TO ACCOMMODATE SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS TESTING AND REPAIR.

THIS THIS PROGRAM USED TO BE HANDLED AT FIRE STATION NUMBER ONE.

THEY MANAGED ALL OF OUR AIR PACKS AND THE MAINTENANCE ON THEM.

THEIR CALL VOLUMES HAVE GOTTEN PRETTY HEAVY AND IT IS LIMITED THEIR AVAILABLE TIME TO WORK ON SCBA.

SO THAT HAS MOVED AS A FUNCTION OF THE FIRE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING SUPPORT SERVICES IS NOW TAKING CARE OF THAT, BUT THEY NEED A LITTLE MORE SPACE TO DO THAT.

ONE THING ON THE SCBA, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A SECURED AREA.

SO WHAT'S KNOWN AS THE EIGHT BAY, WHICH IS OUT THERE ON THE TRAINING FIELD WITH THE EIGHT BAY DOORS ON IT.

WE'LL EXPAND THAT BUILDING SLIGHTLY TO PROVIDE A A SCBA ROOM OUT IN THAT AREA.

SPEAKING OF THE TRAINING SYSTEMS AND THE TRAINING FIELD ITSELF, THE BURN PROPS AND THE TRAINING TOWER ARE STARTING TO EXPERIENCE BREAKDOWNS AND FAILURES ON THOSE.

THE CAR FIRE SIMULATOR.

MOST OF YOU KNOW THAT WE USE AN ACTUAL REAL CAR THAT'S BEEN STRIPPED AND THEN WE BURN IT TILL IT'S NOT USABLE ANYMORE.

AND THEN WE FIND ANOTHER ONE STRIPPED IT DOWN.

THIS WOULD ACTUALLY BE FOR A COMMERCIALLY DESIGNED CAR FIRE SIMULATOR MADE BY THE [INAUDIBLE] COMPANY, AND IT SUPPOSED TO BE A LOT LONGER LASTING AND IT'S GOT SOME SAFETY FEATURES APPLIED INTO IT AS WELL.

PUMP SIMULATOR SYSTEM WE BORROWED ONE FROM PLANO.

WE'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO ACTUALLY TRAIN OUR OUR PUMP OPERATORS WITH SIMULATED PUMP FAILURES, HOSE FAILURES, THINGS LIKE THAT.

THIS PUMP SIMULATOR SYSTEM THAT PLANO BROUGHT OUT, THE GUYS FELL IN LOVE WITH IT, AND WE WANT TO INCLUDE ONE OF THOSE AS WELL SO WE CAN TRAIN OUR PUMP OPERATORS BETTER.

AND THEN IN 2023 FUTURE FUNDING, WE LOOK TO REFURBISH THE JOGGING TRACK AROUND THE DRILL FIELD.

WE'VE HAD THAT TRACK IN PLACE SINCE 08' AS WELL.

IT'S STARTING TO SHOW A LOT OF WEAR WITH GROUND MOVEMENTS ON AND SO FORTH.

FIRE STATION REMODELING OF THE BEDROOMS ANOTHER PANDEMIC RELATED ITEM THAT WE LEARNED.

WE'VE GOT BEDROOMS THAT HOUSE, ABOUT SIX PEOPLE IN A CONGREGATE AREA.

[01:35:04]

WE WANT TO SEPARATE THOSE INTO INDIVIDUAL BEDROOMS WITH INDIVIDUAL AIR HANDLING UNITS.

SOME OF OUR FIREFIGHTERS USE CPAP MACHINES, WHICH IS AN AEROSOL GENERATING PROCEDURE IN MOST WORLDS.

AND WHEN WE HAVE THOSE IN THE BACK OF THE AMBULANCE, WE HAVE TO WEAR N95S, GOGGLES, GOWNS, GLOVES, RESPIRATORS ON AND SO FORTH.

IN THE BEDROOM WE DON'T DO ANYTHING AND WE'RE SEEING THE SPREAD OF COVID WITHIN OUR FIRE STATIONS.

SO THIS WILL TAKE US TO INDIVIDUAL BEDROOMS WITH INDIVIDUAL AIR HANDLING UNITS ON THIS PROJECT.

THE BOND PROJECT SLIDE, I KIND OF GOT IT OUT OF ORDER HERE BECAUSE IT'S JUST THE FIRE STATION REMODELS.

BUT YOU CAN SEE THERE THAT WE HOPE TO COMPLETE FIRE STATION NUMBER SEVEN BY THE END OF 2025 AND ESPECIALLY USING ARPA FUNDS.

THAT'LL BE A LITTLE PRESSURE ON US TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

SUMMARY OF PROJECTS FOR THE FIRE DEPARTMENT ARE FIFTEEN POINT TWO MILLION FOR THE 2022 CIP.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR CHIEF LEE? COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

CHIEF, HOW CONFIDENT ARE WE THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET THOSE AMBULANCES IN 22'? [LAUGHTER] EXTREMELY.

ARE THEY ON THE WAY? THEY ARE RIGHT NOW THE LAST I HEARD, WE STILL HAVE NOT IDENTIFIED THE SOURCE FOR CHASSIS.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE'RE STILL KIND OF HAMSTRUNG BY THE SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES.

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE UTILIZING DODGE CHASSIS, AND DODGE IS PROMISING TO MAKE A RUN OF I GUESS IT'S THERE 5500 IS THE CHASSIS THAT WE USE.

THEY'RE PROMISING TO MAKE A RUN OF THOSE AND WE SHOULD BE IN LINE TO GET A GET SIX OF THEM.

OK.

BUT WE STILL HAVE A SUFFICIENT FLEET TO.

YES, SIR.

THE YOU KNOW, OUR BETWEEN COUNCIL'S COMMITMENT TO KEEPING OUR FLEET TOP NOTCH AND OUR FLEET DEPARTMENT, [INAUDIBLE] AND HIS GROUP, THEY DO OUTSTANDING WORK TO KEEP OUR FLEET IN GREAT SHAPE.

WE HAVE SOME THAT ARE GOING TO REACH THEIR UPPER LIMITS DURING THIS TIME THAT WE'RE WAITING.

BUT THE CONDITION REPORTS ON THOSE UNITS ARE SUFFICIENT THAT WE CAN KEEP RUNNING THEM.

OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

GREAT QUESTION, SIR.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

WELL, IT'S STILL MORNING.

MORNING, CHIEF.

YES, SIR.

ON YOUR CLASSROOM CONFERENCE ROOM MULTIMEDIA UPGRADES.

YES, SIR.

ARE YOU ASSESSING? TO WHAT EXTENT DO YOU THINK YOU CAN BE LOOKING AT UPGRADES VERSUS REPLACEMENTS OR YOU'RE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF EVALUATING THAT? WE ARE THE PROJECTORS, FOR THE MOST PART, WERE REPLACED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, SO WE'LL PROBABLY LEAVE THOSE ALONE.

BUT IT'S GOING TO BE THE SOUND SYSTEMS AND THE CONTROL MODULES THAT ARE ON THE LECTERNS, IN THE ROOMS THAT WILL PROBABLY BE A FULL REPLACEMENT ON THOSE.

RIGHT, RIGHT.

AND CHIEF WE DO DO TRAINING FOR DEPARTMENTS OUTSIDE OF OUR OWN, IS THAT CORRECT? WE SURE DO.

NOT ONLY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT OUTSIDE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, BUT WE HAVE MANY CITY OF GARLAND DEPARTMENTS COME IN AND USE OUR TRAINING FACILITIES, AS WELL AS OTHER AGENCIES THAT COME IN AND USE THEM AS WELL.

SO TEXAS FIRE CHIEFS ASSOCIATION USES THEM FOR SOME DIFFERENT TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES, AND TEEX LIKES TO COME IN AND USE OUR FACILITIES AS WELL.

SO THEY, WE WE USE A LOT.

AND ARE YOU LOOKING AT A TIMELINE CHIEF FOR FOR YOU MAKING THIS ASSESSMENT AND MOVING FORWARD WITH WHAT YOU NEED TO DO? YES, SIR, WE'LL WE'RE KIND OF ALREADY IN THE PROCESS OF BEGINNING THE ASSESSMENT PHASE OF EACH CLASSROOM.

AND THEN WE'RE READY TO PULL THE TRIGGER AS SOON AS THE FUNDING IS THERE AND WE'LL GET OUR CONTRACTOR IN TO GET STARTED ON IT.

OKAY.

THANKS, CHIEF.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

CHIEF, HOW FAR ARE WE ON STATION SIX FOR COMPLETION? STATION SIX WAS, I THINK WE HAD ONE HUNDRED PERCENT DESIGN DRAWINGS DONE, AND YOUR FIRE CHIEF SAID THAT DAYROOM IS TOO SMALL AND THAT KITCHEN IS TOO SMALL.

SO WE'RE BACK TO PROBABLY WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY EIGHTY PERCENT.

WE HAVE ABOUT EIGHTY PERCENT ON THE DESIGN.

WE WANT TO COMPLETE THAT IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS, THE ARCHITECT HAS MADE ADJUSTMENTS.

WE JUST HAVEN'T SEEN THEM YET.

AND THEN WE'LL MOVE IMMEDIATELY INTO CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS AND GO OUT TO BID.

SO YOU'D THINK 2023.

2023 COMPLETION LATE 2023 COMPLETION.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, CHIEF FOR JUST ONE AFTER ANOTHER.

GREAT PRESENTATIONS THAT WE'RE GETTING A LOT OF THINGS COMING OUT OF THE GROUND.

SO IT'S GREAT TO TO SEE THAT PROGRESS.

AND I WOULD JUST URGE, AS I HAVE BEFORE, THAT ON ON FIRE STATION ONE THAT THAT WE

[01:40:07]

MAKE THAT THAT THAT'S GOING TO BE SPECIAL, A DIFFERENT DESIGN, SOMETHING REALLY ICONIC FOR FOR THAT NEIGHBORHOOD IN THAT PART OF THE CITY.

I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING SEEING WHAT WE CAN DO.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE KIND OF A LANDMARK FIRE STATION OF SOME SORT.

I WOULD TOO.

AND MR. BRADFORD AND I HAVE COMMUNICATED ON THIS ON A NUMBER OF TIMES.

ME SEEKING CLARITY THAT WE WANT A TRUE GATEWAY FIREHOUSE ON THE FOREFRONT OF THAT, THAT LOCATION, AND WE'RE GOING TO KEEP PUSHING FOR THAT.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU, CHIEF.

I APPRECIATE THAT AND I KNOW THE NEIGHBORHOOD OVER THERE.

THE WHOLE CITY WILL BE GREAT.

IT'S A GOOD TIME TO BE A DEPARTMENT HEAD IN THE CITY OF GARLAND.

LIKE I SAY, THESE PRESENTATIONS ARE AMAZING AND A LOT OF IT'S DUE TO Y'ALL BRINGING FORWARD THE ABILITY TO DO IT SO.

VERY GOOD.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? LOOKS LIKE WE'LL WE'LL KEEP SEEING THOSE WHITE AMBULANCES FOR A LITTLE BIT LONGER.

MAYBE, YOU KNOW, THERE'S GOING TO COME A DAY WHERE WE'RE GOING TO MISS THOSE WHITE AMBULANCES.

WE WILL.

OK [LAUGHTER] YES, SIR, WE WILL.

WE WILL.

AND THAT'S, YOU KNOW, IT'S FUNNY.

YOU SAY THAT.

I STILL SEE ONE EVERY COUPLE OF WEEKS, I'LL SEE A RESERVE.

IF YOU SEE A WHITE AMBULANCE YOU KNOW, IT'S GARLAND.

EXACTLY, EXACTLY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

NEXT, WE WILL MOVE TO STREETS.

MR. OLIVER.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THIS PRESENTATION.

STREET DEPARTMENT, OK, THE FIRST ITEM WE'VE GOT IS THE SIDEWALK PARTICIPATION PROGRAM, AS YOU'RE AWARE, THAT'S A PROGRAM THAT IS TRANSITIONED OVER FROM THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT TO THE STREET DEPARTMENT.

AND OF COURSE, DURING THE COURSE OF THE PAST YEAR, I THINK WE WE REVISED THE THE ORDINANCE TO PROVIDE FOR EXTRA DISCOUNTS RELATED TO THAT.

SO WE DO HAVE QUITE A BACKLOG OF THOSE.

WE ARE ACTUALLY WORKING WITH REVENUE RECOVERY DEPARTMENT TO GET THOSE REQUESTS OUT TO THE CITIZENS AND PURSUE ON THOSE.

BUT WE ANTICIPATE THAT THAT PROJECT COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THAT THIS YEAR IS A MILLION, A LITTLE OVER A MILLION DOLLARS.

OOPS.

I WENT TOO FAR.

OK, WELL, WHAT HAPPENED ON THE PAVING OF AN UNIMPROVED ALLEYS THAT IS THE FUNDING TO PAVE AND TO PAVE AN UNPAVED ROAD, UNIMPROVED ALLEYS WITHIN THE CITY.

THAT WAS A NEW, NEW INITIATIVE IN THE BOND PROGRAM.

RIGHT NOW, WE ARE CURRENTLY IN 2022 THE PROJECTS THAT WE THINK THAT WE'LL GET ON THE GROUND IN 2022 WHERE THOSE PROJECTS ARE ACTUALLY BEING WERE PARTICIPATING WITH THE WATER DEPARTMENT WHERE THEY ARE REPLACING SEWER LINES IN THESE ALLEYS.

THE CELESTE DRIVE VISTA IS UNDER DESIGN CLIFF AND I THINK THE CLIFF RITA IS, IS, IS ACTUALLY PART IS GETTING READY TO BID.

AND IN THE DAWN, DAWN TWILIGHT AND MILKY WAY MOONLIGHT ARE UNDER DESIGN AS WELL.

AND THEN WHAT WE'RE SHOWING IN 2023 THERE ACTUALLY WE HAVE WE HAVE ISSUED A CONTRACT WITH A CONSULTANT FOR THE DESIGN OF THESE ALLEYS, SO WE MET WITH HIM THE OTHER DAY ON THE ON THE LAYOUT SO THEY WOULD ANTICIPATE THEY'LL HAVE US SOME PRELIMINARY DESIGNS TO US WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH OR SO.

BUT THESE ARE ALL IN AREAS THAT ARE, I THINK, WERE PART OF DISTRICT TWO, AND I THINK THEY'RE BECOMING NOW PART OF DISTRICT FIVE WITH THAT AREA.

BUT THEY'RE ALL RIGHT.

THEY'RE ADJACENT TO EACH OTHER RIGHT THERE IN THE BROADWAY DAIRY AREA.

RAILROAD CROSSING IMPROVEMENTS.

THIS IS A FUN TO PROVIDE THE RAILROAD IMPROVEMENTS IN GARLAND.

THIS IS A INITIALLY WHEN THIS FUND WAS ASSOCIATED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT WAS HANDLING, BUT WE'RE TAKING A MORE PROACTIVE STANCE ON THE RAILROAD CROSSINGS AND SO WE'RE FUNDING THAT'S GOING TO.

THE PRIMARY PART OF THIS FUNDING IS TO DO TWO THINGS ONE TO WHEN WE REPLACE THE TRACK.

GENERALLY, IT'S GOING TO BE AT OUR EXPENSE.

THE RAILROAD COMPANY STANCE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THAT OUR TRACK WAS HERE AND THEN YOU BUILD YOUR ROADWAY, SO IF WE HAVE TO ADJUST THE TRACK.

THAT'S BECAUSE OF YOUR ROADWAY.

SO IT'S INTERESTING THAT HOW THEY DO THAT, KCS REQUIRES THAT YOU SEND THEM MONEY IN ADVANCE.

AND THEN IF THERE'S IF THERE'S A DIFFERENCE, THEN THEY'LL EITHER BILL YOU OR SEND YOUR MONEY BACK.

DGNO WILL ACTUALLY BILL US AFTER THEY INVOICE US AFTER THE FACT.

SO IT'S INTERESTING THAT THE TWO RAILROAD COMPANIES DO THAT SO DIFFERENTLY.

BUT THIS WAS ALSO THIS BOND MONEY WAS ALSO SUPPLEMENTED WITH TWO POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS IN THE ARPA FUNDING.

AND SO THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE SLATED AND WE'VE ACTUALLY WE'VE ACTUALLY DONE TWO, WE'VE

[01:45:01]

DONE THE BUCKINGHAM, THE BUCKINGHAM ROAD CROSSING THERE BETWEEN NEAR LAVON DRIVE.

WE DID.

WE'VE GOTTEN A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS ON THAT AND HOW MUCH BETTER THAT IS.

AND AND WE'VE ALSO REMOVED WHERE WE HAD REMOVED A SPUR LINE ON 1ST STREET, JUST NORTH OF WALNUT.

WE'VE REPLACED THAT WITH PAVEMENT.

THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE ONGOING RIGHT NOW IS THE TWO TWO PROJECTS ON FOREST LANE, AND THOSE ARE BETWEEN INTERNATIONAL ROAD AND KIRBY.

AND THEN THERE'S A SPUR LINE THERE, JUST EAST OF SHILOH ROAD.

THOSE TWO PROJECTS DO NOT REQUIRE REPLACING THE TRACK THAT'S JUST REPLACING THE PAVEMENT ON THE APPROACH.

SO THOSE WILL BE OBVIOUSLY THOSE WILL BE LESS EXPENSIVE AND THEN THE ONES WE HAVE TARGETED.

ALSO FOR THIS YEAR'S JUPITER ROAD BETWEEN FOREST AND MILLER, THAT PROJECT IS UNDER DESIGN AND ACTUALLY WE'VE WORKED WITH DGNO.

THEY'RE THEY'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO DO A TEMPORARY KIND OF GRINDING TO TRY TO IMPROVE AND ENHANCE IT, THE CROSSING, BECAUSE THAT ONE'S PRETTY ROUGH TO ENHANCE THAT UNTIL SUCH TIME THAT WE CAN GET THE PROJECT UNDERWAY.

BUT WE ANTICIPATE THAT THAT ONE WILL GO TO BID THIS YEAR AND CONSTRUCTION TO HOPEFULLY START LATE LATE THIS YEAR.

AND KINGSLEY ROAD BETWEEN INDUSTRIAL AND NATIONAL.

THAT'S ONE THAT WE'VE ACTUALLY WE'VE ALREADY SENT THE THE CHECK TO KC&S AND KCS TO TO START THAT PROJECT.

SO THEY'RE THEY'RE WORKING ON THE PROCESS.

IT TAKES THEM ABOUT THREE MONTHS.

ONCE WE SEND THEM THE MONEY, IT'LL TAKE THEM ABOUT.

IT TAKES THEM ABOUT THREE MONTHS TO GET THEIR CONTRACTOR IN PLACE AND GET OTHER MATERIALS AND FOR THEM TO START THE PROJECT.

BUT USUALLY THEY'LL DO THAT OVER A WEEKEND.

LIKE, LIKE BUCKINGHAM, THEY DID THEIR REPLACEMENT OVER A WEEKEND AND THEN MILLER MILLER PARK DRIVE ON THE WEST SIDE OF JUPITER.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF OLD ABANDONED SPUR LINES THAT WE'RE GOING TO PULL OUT AND JUST REPLACE THOSE WITH PAVEMENT.

AND THEN IN 2023, WE'VE GOT KINGSLEY BETWEEN MARKET AND SHILOH AND MILLER ROAD.

THOSE ARE THOSE BOTH REQUIRE NOT ONLY STREET TRACKWORK, BUT IT'S ALSO GOING TO REQUIRE THE PAVEMENT WORK.

BUT WE ANTICIPATE THAT THAT PROBABLY WHEN WE COMPLETE THOSE PROJECTS, THAT SHOULD EXHAUST A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE MONEY.

BUT ONE THING THAT WE ARE DOING, AND I THINK WE WE BROUGHT THAT DESIGN CONTRACT TO Y'ALL SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, BUT WE'VE GOT A CONSULTANT AT.

LOOKING AT ALL THE RAILROAD CROSSINGS, OUR ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO PROVIDE A COST ESTIMATE TO UPGRADE ALL THOSE RAILROAD CROSSINGS AND TO TRY TO PRIORITIZE THOSE SO WE CAN COME BACK TO YOU IN THE FUTURE AND SAY THIS IS THE ORDER THAT WE THINK WE SHOULD DO, THAT WE SHOULD MAKE THESE RAILROAD TRACK IMPROVEMENTS THEN AND THEN WE'LL IT'LL GIVE YOU SOME IDEA OF WHAT THE LONG TERM FUNDING NEEDS ARE GOING TO BE TO DO THOSE IMPROVEMENTS.

I WOULD SAY PROBABLY THE TWO ON FOREST LANE ARE PROBABLY FIFTY PERCENT OF THE COMPLAINTS THAT I GET AND THAT ONE, THE ONE THAT'S EAST OF SHILOH.

THERE IS JUST A BONE RATTLER MAN.

I MEAN, SO ONCE THOSE TWO ARE FIXED, I THINK WE'LL PROBABLY AGAIN IT'LL IT'LL TAKE FIFTY PERCENT OF OUR COMPLAINTS OUT.

YEAH, THE CONTRACTOR HAS ACTUALLY SUBMITTED THEIR PERMIT AND WE'RE KIND OF HAVING TO RATTLE THE CAGES OVER THERE BECAUSE IT'S IT'S REALLY THEY SAY THEIR PROCESS IS AN EIGHT WEEK PROCESS, BUT IT'S BEEN TEN WEEKS AND THEY STILL DON'T.

THE CONTRACTOR STILL DOESN'T HAVE HIS PERMIT.

SO ALSO ON THAT SECTION, THAT SECTION OF FOREST THERE BETWEEN THERE NATIONAL CURVE, THAT DIAGONAL CROSSING, THERE WAS AT ONE TIME TWO CROSSINGS.

SO WE WILL PROBABLY COME BACK TO YOU WITH A RESOLUTION JUST THE SAME, SIMILAR TO WHAT WE DID ON 1ST STREET WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO.

THEY JUST WANT TO SAY THAT WE HAVEN'T GIVEN UP BY LETTING YOU PAVE IT.

WE HAVEN'T GIVEN UP THE RIGHT TO COME BACK IN THE FUTURE AND PUT A TRACK IN AT OUR EXPENSE IF WE CHOOSE TO DO SO.

THE EQUIPMENT COVERED STRUCTURES, FACILITY PAYMENT THAT'S ON OUR YARD, THE FUNDING, THAT'S THE FUNDING THAT'S BEEN ALLOCATED FOR CONCRETE PATHS AND COVERED STRUCTURES.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE IN WE'RE NEGOTIATING WITH A CONSULTANT TO SELECT TO DO THE DESIGN WORK.

SO WE HOPE THE DESIGN WILL BE COMPLETED AND PERHAPS WE CAN START CONSTRUCTION AT THE END OF THIS YEAR.

THAT WAS A PROJECT UNFORTUNATELY, THAT'S KIND OF BEEN DELAYED.

WE'VE TRIED TO COORDINATE THIS YARD WITH THE BUILDING CONSTRUCTION.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T HAVE THE YARD WORK AND AND THE RECONSTRUCTION OF OUR BUILDING GOING ON SIMULTANEOUSLY BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE A MESS.

AND AND REALLY, UNFORTUNATELY, WITH THE THE PROGRAMS WE'VE TAKEN UP WITH ADDITIONAL RAILROAD PROGRAM WITH, WITH THE UNPAVED ALLEYS AND WITH THE SIDEWALK PROGRAM, IT'S JUST KIND OF ONE OF THESE PROJECTS.

IT'S KIND OF SHELTER DOWN THE PRIORITY LIST.

BUT WE ARE WE FEEL THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO ATTACK THIS THIS YEAR AND GET GET GOING AND GET GET IMPROVEMENTS ON OUR YARD.

AND WE THINK THAT, LET'S SAY WITH A MILLION MILLION DOLLARS THAT WE PROBABLY ANTICIPATE THAT A LOT OF THAT WORK THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO DO WITH OUR IN-HOUSE CREWS WITH THE STRUCTURES, WE PROBABLY WON'T.

BUT WITH THE YARD IMPROVEMENT, SOME OF THAT WE CAN DO WITH OUR IN-HOUSE CREWS AND THAT SHOULD RESULT IN SOME SAVINGS ON THAT.

AND FOR EQUIPMENT THE GRADALL EXCAVATOR THIS IS THE STORMWATER EQUIPMENT.

AND OBVIOUSLY, WE ALSO MANAGE THE DRAINAGE MAINTENANCE CREW.

THAT'S THE PROVIDING THE FUNDS FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF OUR EQUIPMENT THAT WE USED TO DO THAT AND WE'RE REQUESTING THAT WE REPLACE OUR GREAT OLD EXCAVATOR WITH A NEW ONE, THAT UNIT THAT'S USED TO CLEAN IN [INAUDIBLE] CREEKS THAT THE MAIN THAT WE HAVE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAINTAINING.

IT'S 18 YEARS OLD AND AND OBVIOUSLY ANY PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT'S BEEN USED THAT LONG, 18 YEARS OLD, IT'S GOING TO BE NEED TO BE REPLACED BECAUSE IT'S

[01:50:01]

WHERE YOU'RE GETTING [INAUDIBLE].

WE'RE STARTING TO THROW BAD MONEY, YOU KNOW, GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD, OBVIOUSLY.

SO AND WE'RE TRYING TO PATCH IT ALONG AND LIMPING ALONG.

SO IT DOES IT DOES NEED TO BE REPLACED.

AND SO THIS IS KIND OF THE SCHEDULE THAT WE'RE SHOWING.

THE FUNDING IS SET UP FOR OUR SIDEWALK PARTICIPATION THROUGH 28' AND THEN THE PAVING OF UNPAVED ALLEYS AND THE RAILROAD CROSSINGS AND ONGOING PROGRAMS ARE SET FOR FUNDING THROUGH 26'.

I KNOW WITH THE RAILROAD CROSSINGS WITH ADDITIONAL FUNDING, ALTHOUGH WE MAY BE ABLE TO ACCELERATE THAT AND BE THROUGH AND HAVE THAT, I WOULD ANTICIPATE WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE THAT ARPA MONEY ALL SPENT BY 20 END OF 24', IF NOT BY THE END OF 23'.

SO BECAUSE WE'VE GOT THOSE PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE READY TO GO.

SO OUR FUNDING REQUESTS BETWEEN ALL THE DIFFERENT ONES IN OUR IN THE IN THE STREET SIDE OF IT, IT'S THREE POINT EIGHT FIVE ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

AND ON THE STORMWATER SIDE, IT'S THAT ONE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT, WHICH IS FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT WE'RE REQUESTING.

AND WITH THAT, I WOULD ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS ANYONE MIGHT HAVE.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. OLIVER? COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN, NO QUESTION, STEVE, JUST YOU KNOW, LOOKING BACK OVER THE LAST SIX YEARS, I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH YOU ON THIS STUFF.

IT'S THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT YOU GUYS HAVE PUT INTO THE CITY HAS BEEN GREAT.

AND THE WAY YOU'VE TAKEN THE FUNDING AND KIND OF JUST PUT IT INTO THE PAVEMENT.

YOU KNOW, IT'S KIND OF EVERY DAY IS BUILD GARLAND DAY AS FAR AS THE STREETS DEPARTMENTS CONCERNED.

AND SO I'M REAL PROUD OF THE FACT THAT I GET FAR MORE COMPLAINTS NOWADAYS ABOUT CONSTRUCTION THAN I DO ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THE STREETS.

I GUESS THAT'S THE GOOD PROBLEM TO HAVE AS OPPOSED TO, YEAH, THAT THERE'S TOO MUCH WORK GOING ON AND I CAN'T GET WHERE I NEED TO GET.

BUT THAT'S THAT'S A BETTER END THAN THE COMPLAINT OF THE STREETS HORRIBLE, AND WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FIX IT? SO.

WELL, I DID HAVE THE HYBRID COMPLAINT LAST YEAR THAT WAS I HATE ALL OF THE TRAFFIC CAUSED BY THE STREET WORK WE'RE DOING BECAUSE THE CITY NEVER FIXES ANY OF THE STREETS.

SO, YOU KNOW, I DON'T REALLY I DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW THAT WORKS.

BUT BUT ANYWAY, YOU ALL ARE DOING A GREAT JOB AND IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU GUYS JUST LINING UP THESE PROJECTS TO GET THEM KNOCKED OUT AND PARTICULARLY THE RAILROAD PROJECTS AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU ALL ARE DOING.

SUPER PLEASED.

THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE IT.

I MEAN, THE OVER, OBVIOUSLY THE LAST SEVEN OR EIGHT YEARS, THAT FUNDING THAT THE FUNDING INCREASE HAS REALLY GIVEN US THE ABILITY TO DO A LOT OF PROJECTS AND MAKE A LOT OF IMPROVEMENTS AND AND MAKE THE CITY A LOT BETTER, THE ROADWAYS AND A LOT BETTER CONDITION.

THEY ARE IN THE THE OVERLAY PROGRAM, WHICH SO MANY PEOPLE WERE WORRIED ABOUT, I THINK HAS BEEN JUST A GREAT SUCCESS.

I MEAN, YOU LOOK AT THE WE WERE TALKING LAST WEEK ABOUT THE OVERLAY ON MILLER.

I DON'T KNOW IF COUNCIL REMEMBERS, BUT THAT USED TO BE THE STREET THAT I GOT THE ABSOLUTE MOST COMPLAINTS ABOUT.

AND AND YOU ALL SAID, WELL, LISTEN, IT'S NOT GOING TO GET ALL IT'S, YOU KNOW, EVEN THOUGH WE ARE GOING TO RECONSTRUCT MILLER, IT'S, YOU KNOW, IT WASN'T SOMETHING WAS GOING TO COME RIGHT AWAY.

SO YOU ALL WENT OUT THERE AND OVERLAID IT.

AND I HAVE NOT GOTTEN A COMPLAINT ABOUT THE CONDITION OF MILLER SINCE THEN.

NO WE'VE WE'VE RECEIVED VERY FEW COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE OVERLAY PROGRAM.

YOU KNOW, INITIALLY PEOPLE TEND TO HAVE AN AVERSION TO ASPHALT, BUT ONCE THEY GET IT AND SEE HOW MUCH SMOOTHER ROADWAY IS, WE GENERALLY DON'T HEAR ANY MANY COMPLAINTS AFTER THE FACT.

YEAH.

GREAT JOB.

THANK YOU, STEVE.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

STEVE, I WASN'T GOING TO ASK A QUESTION, BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME AND I WANTED THEM TO HEAR TONIGHT, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO FIX THE RAILROAD TRACKS ON FOREST LANE AND JUPITER? THEY HAVE ASKED ME SO MANY TIMES AND I WANT YOU TO SAY WHEN? LIKE I SAY, THE FOREST LANE.

THE TWO CROSSINGS ON FOREST LANE, THE CONTRACTOR HAS THEIR PERMIT REQUEST IN.

SO AS SOON AS THEY GET THE PERMIT APPROVED, WE ANTICIPATE THAT THEY WILL START HOPEFULLY WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS, IF NOT SOONER.

JUPITER ROAD, YOU KNOW, IT'S UNDER DESIGN.

THAT'S THAT'S WE ANTICIPATE THAT PROBABLY WITH THE AMOUNT OF PAVEMENT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE OUT TO TO GET TO SPEED, THAT'S PROBABLY A MILLION DOLLAR PROJECT.

SO THAT'S GOING TO HAVE TO BE BID SEPARATELY.

BUT IN OUR IN OUR DISCUSSIONS WITH DGNO, THEY HAVE AGREED TO GO OUT THERE AND TAKE THEIR GRINDER AND DO SOME GRINDING ON THOSE APPROACHES WHERE THOSE HAVE DROPPED TO TRY TO SMOOTH THOSE OUT AND AT LEAST TRY TO DO A TEMPORARY IMPROVEMENT TO THE ROADWAY UNTIL SUCH TIME THAT WE CAN DO THE PERMANENT IMPROVEMENT.

OK, THANK YOU, STEVE.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STREETS? I SEE NONE.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THAT WILL MOVE US TO ENGINEERING AND DRAINAGE.

ALL RIGHT.

[01:55:08]

GOOD MORNING, HONORABLE MAYOR MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL.

MICHAEL POLOCEK WITH THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT, DIRECTOR OF ENGINEERING AND I'LL BE PRESENTING THE STREETS AND DRAINAGE PROJECTS FOR THE 2022 CIP THIS YEAR.

WHAT I'M GOING TO DO IS DO WHAT WE'VE DONE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

I'LL PRESENT THE STREETS AND AT THAT TIME, WE'LL STOP AND ASK ANSWER QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE STREETS AND THEN WE'LL GO INTO DRAINAGE IF THAT'S OK WITH THE COUNCIL.

ALL RIGHT.

FIRST ONE THAT I HAVE ON THE LIST IS SHILOH ROAD.

I'VE INCLUDED THIS SLIDE.

WE'RE REQUESTING ONE POINT EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS TO ACTUALLY, I'M GOING TO INCLUDE THE WORD FINISH THIS PROJECT THIS YEAR, FINISH CONSTRUCTION AND MOVE ON AND ACTUALLY OPEN THIS ROAD COMPLETELY UP.

I KNOW IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, ESPECIALLY FOR THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE DOWN IN THAT AREA AND COMMUTE THROUGH THAT AREA, BUT IT WILL BE COMPLETE THIS YEAR.

WE ARE ACTUALLY DOWN TO THE REMAINDER OF THE SIDEWALKS AND LANDSCAPING FOR THIS PROJECT, AND WE'RE ANTICIPATING SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION BY, I BELIEVE, MARCH OF THIS YEAR, MAYBE MOVING INTO APRIL, BUT WE SHOW A COMPLETION DATE OF OF JULY.

THAT'S FINAL CLEANUP AND ACTUALLY RECORD DRAWINGS, THAT TYPE OF THING FROM THE CONSULTANT.

BUT I DID WANT TO INCLUDE THIS IN THERE, JUST SO COUNCIL KNOWS THIS WILL BE FINISHED THIS YEAR.

SO NEXT, TAKE OUT THE OTHER FIFTY PERCENT OF COMPLAINTS THAT WE GET.

YES, YES, ABSOLUTELY.

NEXT PROJECT IS BRAND ROAD.

WE WERE HOPING TO GET THIS ONE RESURRECTED THIS PAST YEAR, BUT DUE TO SOME, SOME ISSUES WITH OUR DEPLETED STAFFING, WE HAD SOME PEOPLE RETIRE AND OTHER PEOPLE LEAVE FOR PROMOTIONS IN OTHER DEPARTMENTS.

SO WE'VE BEEN DEPLETED A LITTLE BIT.

BUT WE DID RESURRECT THIS PROJECT AT THE END OF THIS LAST YEAR AND STARTED GOING THROUGH THE PLANS.

AS YOU MAY RECALL, BRAND ROAD.

SOME OF YOU ON COUNCIL MAY RECALL BRAND ROAD WAS FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD, SHELVED A FEW YEARS AGO, AND WE'RE RESURRECTING THIS PROJECT AT THE TIME IT WAS SHELVED.

IT WE IT WAS BETWEEN THE SIXTY AND NINETY PERCENT.

WE BELIEVE THAT AFTER REVIEWING THE PLANS AND LOOKING AT THEM THIS PAST FEW MONTHS, IT'S AROUND EIGHTY PERCENT COMPLETE AS FAR AS THE DESIGN, AND WE'RE WANTING TO GET THAT MOVE BACK UP AND BACK ON THE FRONT BURNER.

WE'RE NEGOTIATING WITH THE CONSULTANT AT THIS TIME TO RE SCOPE THE REST OF THE PROJECT AND GET IT READY FOR BID AND OUT TO CONSTRUCTION AND THE FUNDING PROVIDED.

THIS IS FOR LAND ACQUISITION.

WE STILL HAVE SOME LAND ACQUISITION ON THIS PROJECT THAT WE HADN'T COMPLETED.

AND AGAIN, WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN JANUARY OF 23'.

THESE ARE 2004 BOND FUNDS.

AND WHAT I WANTED TO ADD IS THAT THIS WILL HAVE A MULTI-USE TRAIL OR A MULTI-USE PATH 12 FOOT WIDE ALONG THE SOUTHERN SIDE OR EASTERN SIDE OF THE OF THE ROADWAY.

IT WILL ACTUALLY GO OFF SITE IN PARALLEL THE BUSH TURNPIKE AND GO UNDER THE MAIN LANES WHERE THE BRIDGE CROSSES SPRING CREEK OF THE BUSH TURNPIKE AND CONNECT TO NAAMAN SCHOOL ON THE SOUTH, WHICH IS KEY FOR ANOTHER SLIDE IN HAND.

A FEW MORE SLIDES DOWN THE ROAD HERE, SO BUT BUT WE DO WANT TO GET THIS RESURRECTED THIS YEAR AND AND THE DESIGN FINISHED RIGHT AWAY, ACQUIRED SO THAT WE CAN GET THIS PROJECT BID LATE THIS YEAR AND OUT TO CONSTRUCTION AT THE BEGINNING OF NEXT YEAR.

THAT'S OUR THAT'S OUR PLAN.

WATERHOUSE, FROM BOBTOWN TO HAYMAN.

WATERHOUSE, IS ACTUALLY CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, ALONG WITH BOBTOWN ROAD.

BOBTOWN ROAD WAS ACTUALLY INCLUDED IN THE 2004 BOND PROGRAM.

WATERHOUSE WAS NOT, AND THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN FULLY FUNDED BY COS, BUT IT WAS ALSO A TWO LANE ASPHALT ROAD.

AND THERE WAS A DEVELOPMENT THAT WENT IN THERE A FEW YEARS AGO, AN APARTMENT COMPLEX, AND WE WANTED TO GO AHEAD AND ADD THAT TO IT AND COMPLETE THIS WHOLE AREA FOR CONCRETE, CURB AND GUTTER AND THE FULL DRAINAGE SYSTEMS. SO THIS ONE WAS ADDED.

THE REASON WE HAVE IT ON THE LIST THIS YEAR, WE ARE REQUESTING JUST JUST OVER A MILLION DOLLARS FOR THIS PROJECT TO ACTUALLY COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

BUT MORE ESPECIALLY COUNCIL MEMBER IN.

LET'S SEE, THAT WAS SEPTEMBER OF 2021.

WE CAME TO THE COUNCIL WITH A CHANGE ORDER TO ACTUALLY INCLUDE A 12 FOOT WIDE HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL ALONG BOBTOWN AND WATERHOUSE FROM ROWLETT OVER TO ROAN ROAD.

IT'S JUST AROUND ONE MILE OF TRAIL SYSTEM IN THE SOUTH END OF GARLAND HERE.

AND THE COUNCIL ISSUED THE CHANGE ORDER.

WHAT WE ARE NEEDING NOW IS JUST AN ADDITIONAL ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND IN 22' IN 2022 COS TO COMPLETE THIS.

AND THAT'S FOR THE INSPECTION AND MATERIALS TESTING FOR THAT TRAIL

[02:00:01]

SYSTEM.

NEXT PROJECT IS ACTUALLY A NEW PROJECT.

CRIST ROAD FROM FOSTER TO NAAMAN SCHOOL IF COUNCIL IS FAMILIAR, THERE IS WAS A DEVELOPMENT CALLED HIDDEN OAKS AND AS PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WITH HIDDEN OAKS, THEY WERE TO CONSTRUCT THE REST OF CRIST ROAD IN FRONT OF THERE FRONT OF THEIR SUBDIVISION FROM A TWO LANE TO A FIVE LANE UNDIVIDED THOROUGHFARE.

AND THEY DID COMPLETE THAT IN ABOUT THE LAST YEAR, YEAR AND A HALF.

AND THERE IS A MISSING SECTION, AS YOU SEE IN BLUE ON THERE BETWEEN FOSTER AND NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD, WHERE IT'S STILL TWO LANES WIDE AND WE'RE REQUESTING FROM COUNCIL.

ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY TWO THOUSAND THIS YEAR TO ACTUALLY GO INTO THE DETAILED DESIGN OF THIS LAST PIECE OF ROADWAY AND CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN MAY OF NEXT YEAR TO COMPLETE THIS ROAD AND HAVE IT COMPLETELY FIVE LANES ACROSS.

THE FUNDS THAT ARE GOING TO BE USED FOR THIS PROJECT ARE ACTUALLY FROM IMPACT FEES.

AND BUT WE ARE REQUESTING THE HUNDRED EIGHTY TWO THIS YEAR AND THE CONSTRUCTION WILL BE IN NEXT YEAR'S BUDGET.

GETTING TO THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM PROJECTS, WE HAVE NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD, A ONE ONE SECOND.

I SEE COUNCILMAN MOORE.

DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER? OK.

IT WASN'T I DIDN'T HAVE A QUESTION.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

IT WASN'T REALLY A QUESTION.

IT WAS REALLY I WANTED TO SAY TO STEVE, WE REALLY APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT THEY'RE DOING THERE ON THAT ROSEHILL BOBTOWN CONNECTION.

WE WERE GETTING A LOT OF COMPLAINTS INITIALLY, BUT I THINK THE RESIDENTS IN THAT AREA NOW ARE HAPPY WITH WHAT'S TAKING PLACE.

NO PAIN, NO GAIN.

THEY KNOW THAT THEY'VE GOT TO DO SOME DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS IN ORDER FOR THAT WORK TO BE DONE.

I WANTED TO ALSO SAY THAT THE STORAGE FACILITY THERE IS DOING A GREAT JOB OF COMMUNICATING WITH THE COMMUNITY AS THAT RENOVATION HAS TAKEN PLACE.

STEVE, I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR ALL THE ASSISTANCE THAT YOU GIVE ME IN DISTRICT THREE.

YOU GET ON TOP OF IT VERY QUICKLY.

WHATEVER IT IS THAT'S COMING YOUR WAY, YOU GET ON TOP OF IT.

AND I'M VERY SUPPORTIVE OF GETTING THE FUNDS THAT YOU NEED IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THAT BOB TOWN ROAD, ROSEHILL CONNECTION.

SO THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

SORRY, GO AHEAD.

OH, ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT.

AGAIN, BEGINNING WITH THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM PROJECT'S NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD, FROM BRAND TO 78 REQUESTING A LITTLE OVER NINE AND A HALF MILLION THIS YEAR, FUNDING TO BE PROVIDED FOR THE DESIGN, LAND ACQUISITION AND ACTUALLY CONSTRUCTION OF NAAMAN SCHOOL FROM A TWO LANE TO A FOUR LANE DIVIDED THOROUGHFARE.

THIS PROJECT ACTUALLY INCLUDES 19' BOND FUNDS, DALLAS COUNTY FUNDS AND PREVIOUSLY ISSUED COS.

DALLAS COUNTY HAS AGREED TO FIVE POINT TWO MILLION FUNDING TOWARDS THIS PROJECT.

WE DO NOT HAVE A PROJECT SPECIFIC AGREEMENT IN PLACE WITH DALLAS COUNTY AS OF YET.

WE ARE WORKING TO COORDINATE WITH DALLAS COUNTY IN GETTING THE AGREEMENT SENT TO US SO THAT WE CAN BRING IT BEFORE COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL.

THERE WILL BE A MULTI-USE TRAIL ON THIS ONE, AS WELL AS WE WERE TALKING EARLIER.

THE MULTI-USE TRAIL ON THIS PROJECT WILL ACTUALLY CONNECT TO THE PROJECT ALONG BRAND THAT WAS COMING UNDER THE BUSH TURNPIKE TO MAKE THE INTERCONNECTIVITY ALL THE WAY BACK UP TO MUIRFIELD, AS WELL AS AS THE FIRE WILL GOLF COURSE AREA.

THERE HAS BEEN A LITTLE BIT OF SOME DELAY ON THIS PROJECT AND MOSTLY BECAUSE OF OF LAND ACQUISITION.

AS FAR AS AGREEMENTS WITH THE PROPERTY OWNERS, SOME PEOPLE JUST AREN'T WILLING TO GIVE UP THEIR PROPERTY FOR THE PROJECT WAS COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDABLE.

BUT THAT HAS BEEN A DELAY ON THIS, AND IT WILL AFFECT THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION START DATE UNTIL WE GET ACQUIRE ALL THE PROPERTIES.

THE CONSTRUCTION DATE IS A LITTLE BIT UP IN THE AIR.

WE DO HAVE A PROJECTED DATE IN THE CIP, BUT AT THIS POINT, UNTIL WE GET THE FINAL PARCELS THAT WE NEED FOR THIS PROJECT, THE CONSTRUCTION DATE MAY BE MOVED OUT A LITTLE BIT UNTIL WE CAN GET THOSE PARCELS.

NEXT PROJECT IS HOLFORD ROAD SEGMENT A FROM THE PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNPIKE TO THE CITY LIMITS.

HOLD ON ONE SECOND.

YES.

COUNCIL MEMBER BASS, YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR NOW.

I DO, YES.

RELATED TO THE PROPERTY ACQUISITION FROM NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD.

HOW MANY? I GUESS I WAS IN THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THAT WAS ALL UNDER WAY AS FAR AS THE ACQUISITION OF THE PROPERTIES.

HOW MANY MORE PROPERTIES DO WE HAVE LEFT TO PURCHASE? I'M GOING TO DEFER TO RICK GALCERAN FOR THAT QUESTION.

[02:05:01]

WE HAVE APPROXIMATELY FOUR PROPERTIES THAT REMAIN.

AND THESE ARE MORE.

THEY'RE NOT REALLY WHOLE TAKES, BUT RATHER STRIPS AND CLIPS ASSOCIATED CLIPS OK.

OK, THANK YOU.

OK.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

GO AHEAD.

OK.

HOLFORD ROAD SEGMENT A, WE'RE REQUESTING APPROXIMATELY FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION THIS YEAR FOR THIS PROJECT, FOR THE COMPLETE, FOR THE DESIGN, TO COMPLETE THE DESIGN AND LAND ACQUISITION AND TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION LATER THIS YEAR.

THE PROJECT THIS PROJECT ACTUALLY INCLUDES 19' BOND FUNDS, IMPACT FEES, DEVELOPER PARTICIPATION FUNDS, AS WELL AS PREVIOUSLY ISSUED COS.

DALLAS COUNTY'S COMMITMENT HAS BEEN FOUR AND THREE QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS AND DUE TO THE LATEST OPINION OF PROBABLE CONSTRUCTION COSTS, WE'VE ACTUALLY RECOGNIZED THE SAVINGS ON THIS PROJECT OF ABOUT ONE LITTLE OVER ONE MILLION DOLLARS, WITH A BETTER OPINION OF PROBABLE CONSTRUCTION COST AND MORE DETAILED.

THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN DELAYED A LITTLE BIT.

WE RAN INTO SOME ISSUES WITH DRAINAGE ALONG HOLFORD ROAD AND DISCHARGING ONTO THE LARGE UNDEVELOPED TRACT TO THE EAST THERE.

WE WORK THROUGH THOSE THOSE DIFFICULTIES IN MOVED FORWARD WITH THE DESIGN AND AT CURRENT STATE WE ARE STILL WORKING WITH THAT LANDOWNER.

IT'S ALL IN A TRUST NOW THAT LAND IS IN A TRUST AND WE'RE TRYING TO ACQUIRE THE RIGHT AWAY AND EASEMENTS NEEDED.

AND THAT JUST TAKES TIME WHEN YOU HAVE IT WRAPPED UP IN A TRUST.

YOU'RE GETTING ATTORNEYS INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING ELSE.

SO THAT IS TAKING A LITTLE BIT OF TIME, BUT WE DO ANTICIPATE GETTING THIS UNDER CONSTRUCTION LATER THIS YEAR.

HOLFORD ROAD GOING BACK TO THAT, THERE IS ON HOLFORD A THERE IS A TRAIL SYSTEM THAT'S PLANNED THERE, ALREADY CONSTRUCTED IN A COUPLE OF AREAS, AND WE'RE FILLING IN THE GAPS AND THEN THIS WILL CONTINUE ON HOLFORD B AND C PORTIONS THAT THERE WILL BE A TRAIL SYSTEM IN THIS.

ALL THESE PROJECTS AND IN 2022, WE'RE ASKING FOR A LITTLE OVER A MILLION, ONE POINT ONE, TWO MILLION FOR HOLFORD B, AND THE FUNDING WILL BE FOR THE DETAILED DESIGN AND LAND ACQUISITION IMPROVEMENTS FOR HOLFORD ROAD FROM NAAMAN FOREST TO THE PGBT.

AGAIN, IT INCLUDES THE MULTI-USE TRAIL AND THIS INCLUDES BOND FUNDS, THE 19' BOND FUNDS, DEVELOPER PARTICIPATION FUNDS, AS WELL AS DALLAS COUNTY FUNDS AND DALLAS COUNTY.

COMMITMENT FOR THIS PROJECT IS ALMOST A MILLION AND A HALF.

IT'S AT ONE POINT FOUR SIX MILLION.

THE ORIGINAL SCOPE.

THIS IS WHERE WE ACTUALLY HAVE ONE OF THE SCOPE ADJUSTMENTS THE ORIGINAL SCOPE DID NOT ACTUALLY INCLUDE IN THE BOND PROGRAM, THE PORTION OF NAAMAN FOREST BOULEVARD.

THERE'S A SMALL PORTION THERE THAT WE'RE TRYING TO COMPLETE.

THIS WAS PART OF A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WHERE THE CITY COMMITTED TO COMPLETING THIS ROADWAY AND MAKING THE CONNECTION BACK TO HOLFORD ROAD.

AND THAT WAS NOT INCLUDED.

SO PART OF THE SCOPE ADJUSTMENT COSTS INCLUDE THIS.

ALSO, AS FAR AS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE TRAIL THE CITY SUCCESSFULLY NEGOTIATED WITH THE NORTH TEXAS TOLL ROAD TOLL AUTHORITY TO CLOSE OFF AND REPURPOSE THE TURNAROUND ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF HOLFORD ROAD BRIDGE TO REPURPOSE THAT AS A HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL SO THAT WE CAN SAFELY GET PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS FROM THE NORTH SIDE OF THE BUSH TURNPIKE TO THE SOUTH SIDE AND CROSSING THAT BRIDGE.

AND THEY'RE ALLOWING US TO REPURPOSE THAT TURNAROUND AS TRAIL AND BLOCK IT OFF.

SO IT WILL NO LONGER BE A U-TURN, BASICALLY FOR THE FRONTAGE ROADS, BUT IT WILL ACTUALLY BE A SAFE CROSSING FOR THE PEDESTRIANS.

SO THAT WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL SCOPE OF THE PROJECT AS WELL.

THAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS IN THIS SCOPE ADJUSTMENT.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, WITH THE NAAMAN FOREST BOULEVARD AND THE HOLFORD ROAD WE'RE NEEDING TO ACQUIRE RIGHT AWAY, THERE WERE THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH FUNDS ALLOCATED AT THE BEGINNING.

AND THE ORIGINAL ESTIMATE THAT WOULD INCLUDE ENOUGH FUNDING FOR THE RIGHT AWAY TAKES FOR THESE FOR THIS PROJECT.

SO TOTAL THE SCOPE ADJUSTMENT WAS FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION FOR THIS PROJECT TO INCLUDE NAAMAN FOREST, THE THE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE TURNAROUND FOR THE HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL AND THE ADDITIONAL FUNDING NEEDED FOR THE RIGHT OF WAY.

WE DO ANTICIPATE GETTING THIS COMPLETE AND BID LATE THIS YEAR FOR ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION TO START IN FEBRUARY OF NEXT YEAR.

OK, HANG ON ONE SECOND.

MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THIS ONE SEEMS LIKE A PRETTY BIG MISS ON SCOPE.

WITH THAT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE DOUBLING THE PROJECT COST FROM THE ORIGINAL ESTIMATE.

HOW MUCH OF THAT FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION WAS ATTRIBUTED TO NEEDING ADDITIONAL RIGHT

[02:10:02]

AWAY AND HOW MUCH WAS ATTRIBUTED TO THE ADDITIONAL SCOPE FOR THE NAAMAN FOREST EXTENSION? OK, I'M GOING TO I'LL HAVE THAT, RICK ANSWER SOME OF IT.

NOW I DO KNOW ON THE ON THE NAAMAN FOREST BOULEVARD, THE PORTION THAT'S LEFT, THERE'S A THERE'S A DEEP RAVINE IN THERE.

WITH THAT WE HAVE TO CROSS.

WE'RE DRAINAGE, WE'RE GOING TO IT'S GOING TO REQUIRE A LARGE DRAINAGE STRUCTURE.

BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE PLANS, IT'S ALSO REQUIRING TWENTY FIVE FEET OF FILL.

THAT'S GOING TO ALSO HAVE RETAINING WALLS AND RETAINING STRUCTURES TO SUPPORT THAT.

AND SO IT'S IT'S A SOMEWHAT COSTLY CROSSING THERE.

AND THEN AS FAR AS THE RIGHT OF WAY, I'M NOT CERTAIN ON THE RIGHT OF WAY.

SURE, WE'VE GOT ABOUT EIGHT, EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND, MAYBE A LITTLE BIT MORE ON THE RIGHT OF WAY ACQUISITION.

THAT'S PART OF THAT AS WELL.

SO YOU SUBTRACT THAT TO GET THE CONSTRUCTION, OK? INCREASE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. VERA.

THANK YOU.

GO AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT.

YES.

HANG ON.

YEAH.

THERE YOU GO.

MS. BRADFORD YOU MIGHT ALSO ADDRESS THE BRIDGE ISSUES THAT WE HAD AS FAR AS GETTING THAT OUT OF THE FLOOD PLAIN AND HOW THAT IS ADDED TO THE ADDITIONAL COST.

YES, SIR.

THAT WILL BE ON SEGMENT C.

OK, THANK YOU.

IT'S ON SEGMENT C.

AND AGAIN, THE COST FOR THE THE CLOSING OFF OF THE U-TURN.

THAT WAS NOT PART OF THE ORIGINAL SCOPE THAT CAME AFTER THE BOND ELECTION, WHEN ALL THE WHEN THE TRAILS WERE COMING THROUGH AND WE WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO CROSS THE PEDESTRIANS AND BICYCLISTS SAFELY, SAFELY ACROSS THERE.

AND SO THAT'S THAT'S ADDED TO THE COST AS WELL.

HOLFORD ROAD C AGAIN, AS AS AS THE CITY MANAGER WAS REFERRING TO THIS YEAR, WE'RE REQUESTING FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND FOR THIS PROJECT.

MAINLY THIS IS PART OF THE RIGHT OF WAY.

THERE'S A LANDOWNER THAT WE NEED TO ACQUIRE RIGHT OF WAY FROM FOR SEGMENT B, AND HE HAS FRONTAGE ON SEGMENT C AS WELL.

SO WE'RE REQUESTING FUNDING IN THIS, IN THIS FOR MOSTLY THE LAND ACQUISITION THIS YEAR, SO WE COULD GO TO THE PROPERTY OWNER ONE TIME FOR BOTH PROJECTS, AND WE DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT PROPERTY OWNER IN THE FUTURE WHEN WE GET THE DETAILED DESIGN FOR HOLFORD C UP AND RUNNING.

THIS PROJECT IS ACTUALLY SLATED FOR ABOUT, I THINK, A YEAR OUT, IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN TO START THE DESIGN.

BUT AGAIN, AS THE CITY MR. CITY MANAGER WAS WAS REFERRING TO WITH THIS PROJECT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO INCLUDE A FOUR LANE BRIDGE OVER SPRING CREEK, ELEVATED TWO FEET ABOVE THE FLOOD PLAIN.

I KNOW THAT WAS A DISCUSSION THAT WE'VE HAD RECENTLY WITH THE COUNCIL AND A BIG CONCERN OF THE CURRENT BRIDGE AND THE EXISTING BRIDGE BEING SO LOW WITHIN THE FLOODPLAIN.

AND BUT THAT WILL BE ELEVATED.

AND AND AGAIN, THIS WILL HAVE THE MULTI MULTI-USE TRAIL THAT WILL ACTUALLY INTERCONNECT UNDER THE NEW HOLFORD ROAD BRIDGE, CONNECTING BOTH SIDES OF THE FOREST PRESERVE WHERE ACTUALLY THE PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS WILL NOT EVEN HAVE TO CROSS THE ROAD, THEY'LL ACTUALLY BE CROSSING UNDERNEATH THE BRIDGE OVER TO BOTH SIDES OF THE FOREST PRESERVE.

SO AGAIN, ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION ON THIS PROJECT WILL ACTUALLY BE FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD IN LATE 2024.

SHILOH ROAD FROM KINGSLEY TO MILLER.

WELL, WE'RE REQUESTING SIX POINT TWO MILLION, LITTLE OVER SIX POINT TWO MILLION THIS YEAR FOR THE CONTINUED DESIGN AND LAND ACQUISITION FOR THIS PROJECT FROM FROM A FOUR LANE TO A SIX LANE DIVIDED THOROUGHFARE.

FUNDS INCLUDED IN THIS PROJECT ARE RTC FUNDS, IMPACT FEES, 19' BOND FUNDS AND 2022 CERTIFICATES OF OBLIGATION, AS WELL AS DOWN TO DALLAS COUNTY FUNDS, AND DALLAS COUNTY HAS AGREED TO FUND THREE MILLION OF THIS PROJECT.

AGAIN, THIS PROJECT ALSO HAS AN ADJUSTMENT OF NINE POINT THREE MILLION.

AND WHEN WE WERE IN REVIEWING THE ALIGNMENT STUDY FOR THIS PROJECT, WE QUICKLY FOUND OUT THAT ALL THESE SUBDIVISIONS THAT WERE ON THE ON THE RESIDENTIAL SIDE, ON THE ON THE EAST SIDE, THEY WERE PLATTED IN 1950S AND 60S AND RIGHT AWAY WAS DEDICATED.

BUT FOR WHAT THE THOROUGHFARE PLAN HAD IN THE 1950S AND 60S.

AND THEN ON THE ON THE WEST SIDE, A LOT OF THESE PROJECTS WERE PLATTED IN IN THE 60S, 70S AND 80S AND AGAIN FOR THE THOROUGHFARE PLAN OF THE 60S, 70S AND 80S.

WE QUICKLY REALIZED WITH OUR CURRENT THOROUGHFARE PLAN AND THE ENHANCED SIDEWALKS FROM THE TRAIL MASTER PLAN, WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH RIGHT AWAY TO FIT THE CROSS SECTION OF ROADWAY THAT WE NEED IN THIS AREA.

SO THIS PROJECT TOOK A LITTLE BIT OF TIME TO ACTUALLY FIGURE OUT WHERE THAT MAGIC

[02:15:01]

ALIGNMENT WAS GOING TO BE AND WHAT IMPACT WE WERE GOING TO HAVE ON THE PROPERTIES, WHETHER ON THE EAST OR THE WEST.

AND WE CAME TO A RESOLUTION OF SHIFTING THE ROAD, ONE DIRECTION AND AND SO PART OF THAT NINE POINT THREE OR A LOT OF THAT NINE POINT THREE IS ACTUALLY LAND ACQUISITION FOR THIS ROADWAY BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ROAD ROOM IN THE RIGHT OF WAY TO ACTUALLY PROPERLY CONSTRUCT THE ROADWAY.

AND ALL THE IMPERTINENCE IS IN UTILITIES FOR THIS PROJECT.

SO THAT'S PART OF THE NINE POINT THREE PLUS WITH THE THE DETAILED ALIGNMENT STUDY.

WE ALSO HAVE A BETTER OPINION OF PROBABLE CONSTRUCTION COST THAT ALSO INCREASED THE FUNDING FOR THIS PROJECT.

WE DO HAVE INTENTIONS OF MOVING FORWARD WITH A DETAILED DESIGN AND LAND ACQUISITION THIS YEAR.

THAT'S THE REASON WE'RE ASKING FOR THE FUNDING, AND I'M NOT CERTAIN WE SHOW AN ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE OF 2026 AND I'M NOT CERTAIN WITH THE LAND ACQUISITION, WE'RE PROBABLY GOING TO RUN INTO SOME SIMILAR SITUATIONS AS LIKE NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD WHERE IT'S GOING TO BE SOME OF THEM WILL BE DIFFICULT.

SO THE ACTUAL START DATE OF CONSTRUCTION IS STILL LOOMING TO SOME EXTENT.

LYONS ROAD I-30 TO GUTHRIE, WE'RE REQUESTING TWO POINT SEVEN, TWO POINT EIGHT MILLION THIS YEAR FUNDING WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THE DETAILED DESIGN, AS WELL AS LAND ACQUISITION TO IMPROVE LINES FROM A TWO LANE TO A FOUR LANE DIVIDED THOROUGHFARE.

THIS INCLUDES 2019 BOND FUNDS AS WELL AS IMPACT FEES.

ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION IS TO BEGIN IN OCTOBER OF 2023.

WE DID HAVE A COST ADJUSTMENT OR SCOPE ADJUSTMENT ON THIS ONE, INCREASING THE AMOUNT FROM TO TWO POINT TWO MILLION AS A RESULT OF THE DETAILED ALIGNMENT STUDY.

AGAIN, THIS IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE SHILOH ROAD PROJECT, WHERE WITH TODAY'S REQUIREMENTS, A LOT OF THESE PROPERTIES AGAIN WERE PLATTED YEARS AND YEARS AGO AND TO INCLUDE THE EIGHT FOOT SIDEWALKS AND TRAILS AND EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE PLANNED FOR THIS ROADWAY.

WE HAD TO HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHT OF WAY AND EASEMENT AREA FOR UTILITIES.

SO A LOT OF THIS IS LAND ACQUISITION, YOU KNOW, MOSTLY STRIPS.

THERE'S NOT REALLY I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY TAKES ON THIS ON THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT, BUT IT DOES REQUIRE MORE LAND.

AND AND AGAIN, THE OPCC DETAILED OPCC PROVIDED A BETTER CALCULATION OF WHAT THE ROADWAY COST TRULY ARE.

THE PROJECT'S SCHEDULE WAS ALSO PUSHED OUT A LITTLE BIT ON THE ON THE TAIL END OF WHEN THIS WOULD BE COMPLETE.

I THINK WE ADDED ABOUT SIX, SEVEN, MAYBE EIGHT MONTHS TO THE TO THE SCHEDULE BECAUSE THE CONSTRUCT ABILITY OF THIS ROAD, WE WERE LOOKING AT THE GRADE DIFFERENTIAL ALONG THIS ROADWAY AND BECAUSE OF SOME GRADE DIFFERENTIALS, WE FELT THAT THE CONSTRUCTION WAS GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT LONGER TO ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY BUILD ONE HALF AND THEN THE OTHER.

SO WE ADDED TO THE SCOPE AND EXTENDED THE CONSTRUCTION TIME OUT ABOUT EIGHT MONTHS.

WE HAD A NEW PROJECT THIS YEAR, ANOTHER NEW PROJECT, THE ROWLETT ROAD CYCLE TRACK COUNCIL, WAS BRIEFED ON THIS IN SEPTEMBER OF LAST YEAR AND A PSA WITH DALLAS COUNTY OR PROJECT SPECIFIC AGREEMENT.

DALLAS COUNTY WAS BROUGHT TO THE COUNCIL AND APPROVED IN OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR FOR THE COMMITMENTS THAT YOU SEE HERE.

CITIES SHARE FOR THIS PROJECT IS EIGHT HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE THOUSAND TXDOT FUNDS, A LITTLE OVER FOUR MILLION IN DALLAS COUNTY FUNDS JUST SHY OF TWO MILLION.

THE PROJECT WILL BE LED IN BY DALLAS COUNTY AND DESIGNED, AND THEIR ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION DATE IS TO BEGIN IN NINE OF 2023.

AND AS YOU MAY RECALL, THIS IS THERE'S TRAILS ON EACH END NEAR DUCK CREEK DRIVE UP TO BROADWAY AND A TRAIL FROM ROAN ROAD TO THE LAKE.

AND THEN THE MIDDLE SECTION BETWEEN BROADWAY AND ROAN ROAD IS THE CYCLE TRACK.

THEY WILL BE ADDING AN INTERIOR TRAFFIC LANE TO THE MEDIAN HEADING TOWARDS ROWLETT, AND THEN THEY'LL BE ADJUSTING THE LEFT TURN LANES AND REBUILDING THOSE.

THEN THEY'LL GO BACK CLOSE OFF THE OUTSIDE LANE OF THAT AREA TO MAKE IT A TWO WAY CYCLE TRACK, AND THEY WILL BE INCLUDING SIDEWALKS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ROAD.

AND SO THIS IS GOING TO BE A REALLY BIG PROJECT WITH WITH MINIMAL PARTICIPATION BY THE CITY, AND WE'RE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

AS FAR AS I KNOW, I DON'T KNOW OF ANOTHER CYCLE TRACK IN THE DALLAS-FORT WORTH AREA THAT I'M AWARE OF.

PARKS PEOPLE MAY KNOW SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN I DO, BUT THEY ARE COMMON IN NORTHERN, YOU KNOW, IN SOME OTHER STATES.

BUT BUT HERE I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE IN THIS, ALMOST ONE OF A KIND, AND IT'LL BE IN GARLAND.

SO WITH THAT, THE SUMMARY OF THE PROJECTS FOR THIS YEAR, INCLUDING SHILOH AND

[02:20:05]

WATERHOUSE, WHICH ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND TO BE COMPLETE THIS YEAR, CRIST ROAD, THE NEW PROJECT, NAAMAN SCHOOL, ALL THREE HOLFORD SECTIONS AND THEN SHILOH ROAD AND LYONS AND ROWLETT CYCLE TRACK.

WE'RE ASKING FOR JUST UNDER THIRTY MILLION FOR THESE PROJECTS THIS YEAR.

HANG ON ONE SECOND.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR MICHAEL.

YES, SIR.

WOULD YOU GO BACK TO THAT ROWLETT ROAD CYCLE TRACK? CAN YOU TALK JUST BRIEFLY ABOUT ON THE LANE EXPANSIONS FOR THE FOR THE BIKE PATH? WILL, THAT IS THAT GOING TO BE JUST NORTH OF BROADWAY ON THE ROWLETT ROAD SECTION OR SOUTH OF IT? CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT? YES, SIR.

IT'LL BE ON THE ROWLETT ROAD SECTION AND IT'LL BE THE NORTHBOUND LANES FOR LACK OF A IT'S RIGHT, YOU KNOW, GOING TOWARDS ROWLETT AND THEY'LL BE ADDING AN INTERIOR LANE, A THIRD DRIVING LANE AND THEN THEY'LL BE RELOCATING.

THE LEFT TURNS INTO ALL THE DIFFERENT SUBDIVISIONS, SO THEY'LL ACTUALLY BE RECONSTRUCTING THOSE AS WELL.

SO THERE WILL BE THREE LANES NORTHBOUND AND ACTUALLY TWO SOUTHBOUND.

BUT THE OUTSIDE LANE WILL THEN BE REPURPOSED FOR THIS CYCLE TRACK, WHICH IS A TWO WAY CYCLE TRACK, AND IT WILL BE BARRICADED BETWEEN.

I'M NOT CERTAIN HOW THEY'RE PLANNING ON BARRICADING THE LANES BETWEEN SO THAT THE CYCLISTS WON'T FEEL INTIMIDATED WITH THE TRAFFIC DRIVING ALONG THE OTHER TWO LANES OF TRAFFIC HEADING TOWARDS ROWLETT.

BUT IT'LL BE STRICTLY ON THE NORTHBOUND SIDE, YOU KNOW, STRICTLY BE ON THE NORTHBOUND SIDE.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANKS, SIR.

GO AHEAD, MICHAEL.

ALL RIGHT.

AND AGAIN, GRAPHICALLY, THE PROJECT SCHEDULES AGAIN.

SHILOH WILL BE COMPLETED THIS YEAR, AND WE HAVE THE COMPLETION OF ALL THESE OTHER PROJECTS TO FRUITION, MOSTLY IN 2024 HOLFORD ROAD C, OBVIOUSLY WILL NOT BEGIN UNTIL 2024 AND IT'S EXTENDED OUT THROUGH 2026 AND THEN SHILOH LYONS.

AND WITH THAT, BEFORE WE GET INTO THE DRAINAGE PROJECTS, I'LL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ON THE STREETS.

OK, I HAVE NO ONE IN THE QUEUE.

GO AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT.

DRAINAGE PROJECTS FOR 2022 FIRST PROJECT WE HAVE IS GARLAND HEIGHTS AND FREEMAN HEIGHTS.

AND I'M GOING TO PREFACE A NUMBER OF THESE SLIDES THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE GOING THROUGH ARE A LOT OF SUBDIVISION IMPROVEMENTS, DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS TO SUBDIVISIONS, MUCH LIKE PARK [INAUDIBLE].

THIS WAS THE OTHER ONE FROM THE 2004 BOND PROGRAM GARLAND HEIGHTS AND FREEMAN HEIGHTS.

AND GETTING INTO THESE PROJECTS, YOU DESIGNING WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR THE SUBDIVISION IS ONE THING AND IMPROVING THEIR DRAINAGE SYSTEM WHERE WE GET INTO SOME OF THE THE THE DRAINAGE STUDIES AND THE AND THE ISSUES THAT WE FACE ARE WHEN YOU WHEN YOU PULL ALL THIS WATER AND YOU PUT IT IN PIPES AND PUT IT UNDERGROUND, WHERE DOES IT GO FROM THERE? AND WHAT'S DOWNSTREAM? AND SOMETIMES THE DOWNSTREAM SEGMENTS AREN'T REALLY DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE THAT TYPE OF FLOW FROM FROM WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO IMPROVE.

THAT'S THE CASE IN GARLAND HEIGHTS, AND YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR THIS AS A COMMON SITUATION THAT WE HAVE ON A FEW OTHER PROJECTS.

BUT GARLAND FREEMAN HEIGHTS IS ONE OF THOSE.

WE'VE STARTED THIS A WHILE BACK AND WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO ANALYZE THIS.

WE KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO IN THE SUBDIVISION, BUT IT'S THE DOWNSTREAM.

WE DON'T WANT TO ADVERSELY IMPACT THE PROPERTY OWNERS AND THE BUSINESS OWNERS AND EVERYONE DOWNSTREAM.

SO IT'S A DELICATE BALANCE OF WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO TRY TO GET THAT DONE? SO THIS HAS TAKEN A LITTLE BIT LONGER THAN THE ANALYSIS.

AGAIN, I MENTIONED EARLIER THAT WE'VE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF TURNOVER IN OUR DEPARTMENT, ESPECIALLY IN THE CIP PROJECT MANAGEMENT REALM, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE WHEN YOU'RE ADMINISTRATOR AND SUPERVISOR IS ACTUALLY ONE THAT RETIRES.

SO THAT KNOWS ALL THE ALL THE PROJECTS IS SUPERVISING ALL THE OTHER ENGINEERS.

BUT LONG STORY SHORT, WE DO HAVE AN ISSUE ON THIS ONE WITH THE DOWNSTREAM, WE'RE TRYING TO FIGURE THROUGH IT.

I THINK WE HAVE SOMEWHAT OF A RESOLUTION AND I THINK WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE DETAILED DESIGN THIS YEAR.

HOWEVER, WE HAVE HAD A FEW ISSUES WITH THE CONSULTANT UNDERPERFORMING AND WE'VE GOT TO WE HAVE TO RECTIFY THAT AS WELL.

BUT WE WILL GET THIS MOVE FORWARD AND OUR ANTICIPATED COMPLETION OR STARTING CONSTRUCTION DATE WOULD BE JUNE OF 2023.

BRIDGE AND DRAINAGE INFRASTRUCTURE REMEDIATION.

THIS PROJECT, THIS IS THIS IS THREEFOLD THIS PROJECT ACTUALLY STARTED A FEW YEARS AGO AND

[02:25:01]

WE HAD BRIDGE REMEDIATION SECTION 1A, 1B AND 1C.

THIS IS 1C, WE'VE COMPLETED THE OTHER SECTIONS IN BRIDGE REMEDIATION.

COUNCIL, I BRIEFED Y'ALL ON THESE PROBABLY YEAR AFTER YEAR, WE RECEIVE WHAT WE CALL BRINSAP REPORTS FROM TXDOT, AND THEY'VE INSPECTED EVERY BRIDGE IN GARLAND AND THROUGHOUT DALLAS COUNTY AND THROUGHOUT THE STATE, ACTUALLY.

FROM DALLAS COUNTY THEY SEND US THESE BRIDGE REPORTS EVERY TWO YEARS, AND FROM THESE BRIDGE INSPECTION REPORTS, WE THEY TELL US, OH, WE HAVE SCOURING, WE HAVE EROSION.

WE HAVE WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, DECK SPALLING, THAT TYPE OF THING.

AND WE TAKE THOSE REPORTS.

WE READ THROUGH THEM AND THEN WE PUT TOGETHER, OK, WHAT DO WE NEED FOR BRIDGE REPAIRS? AND WE GET SOMEBODY TO DESIGN THE BRIDGE REPAIRS AND THEN WE GO TO BID AND CONSTRUCTION.

WELL, WE USUALLY DEAL WITH THE WITH THE MORE DIFFICULT ONES FIRST THAT ARE THAT ARE MORE DETRIMENTAL TO THE BRIDGE.

AND WE WORK OUR WAY BACK AND THESE WERE SOME OF THE ONES THAT THAT HAD MORE MINOR REPAIRS, BUT THERE WERE A NUMBER OF THEM THAT NEEDED MINOR REPAIRS.

WELL, WE'VE REACHED THAT POINT.

AND AS WE WERE ABOUT TO GET READY TO BID THIS, WE RECEIVED THE REPORTS AND WE HAD EIGHT MORE BRIDGES THAT WE HAD TO ADD TO THE LIST AND WE ADDED THOSE TO THE LIST.

AND NOW WE'RE IF COUNCIL REMEMBERS WE ACTUALLY APPROVED THIS CONTRACT IN DECEMBER FOR CONSTRUCTION, AND IT'S EXPECTED TO GO TO CONSTRUCTION IN FEBRUARY OF THIS YEAR.

SO.

BUT WE DID HAVE TO ADD ABOUT EIGHT OTHER BRIDGES TO THIS LIST FOR REPAIRS BEFORE WE WENT TO CONSTRUCTION.

SO THAT WAS KIND OF THE DELAY ON THIS PROJECT, BUT IT SHOULD BE IN FULL FORCE AND FULL STEAM AHEAD NOW.

DRAINAGE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM.

THE CITY OF GARLAND PARTICIPATED IN A NUMBER OF DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS BACK IN THE MID-80S TO EARLY 1990S.

AND THESE INCLUDED DRAINAGE PARTICIPATION IS WHAT WE CALL IT TODAY THAT Y'ALL MAY BE MORE FAMILIAR WITH.

THEY WERE CALLED DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS BACK BACK THEN, AND WITH THESE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS, WE BUILT MOSTLY GABION STRUCTURES TO FOR EROSION PROTECTION ALONG CREEKS.

AND WITH THE IMPROVEMENTS, PROPERTY OWNERS PAID A PORTION.

WE PAID A PORTION AND AT THE VERY END, THE CITY'S LEFT WITH THE MAINTENANCE OF THESE STRUCTURES.

WELL, AS YOU SEE MID-1980'S, THAT'S THIRTY FIVE.

FORTY, FORTY YEARS AGO, MAYBE IN SOME CASES, THE GABIONS ARE STARTING TO SHOW SIGNS OF NEEDING REPAIR.

AND MOST OF THESE GABIONS THAT I'M TALKING ABOUT ARE BETWEEN JUPITER AND CAMPBELL ROAD ALONG SPRING CREEK, AND THAT WOULD BE UP IN THE.

I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME OF THE SUB.

SPRING PARK.

SPRING PARK.

THERE YOU GO.

SPRING PARK SUBDIVISION.

AND SO WE'VE ANALYZED THOSE FIGURED OUT WHICH GABIONS NEED TO REPAIR NOW.

THIS YEAR, WE'RE GOING INTO THE DESIGN PHASE TO TO REMEDIATE THESE GABION WALLS, AND THEN CONSTRUCTION WILL START IN TWENTY THREE AND TWENTY FOUR.

THERE ARE TWO OTHER LOCATIONS THAT WE INTEND TO THEY'RE SMALLER, WHICH IS THERE WAS A TIMBER WALL THAT THE CITY PARTICIPATED IN YEARS AGO ONE THOUSAND SIX CARROLL DRIVE AND THERE'S ALSO EROSION PROTECTION AT SIX TWENTY FIVE AVENUE B, WHICH IS A CITY OWNED PROPERTY, AND WE INTEND WE ANTICIPATE GETTING THOSE DESIGNED AND CONSTRUCTED THIS YEAR FOR THOSE REPAIRS.

SO WE'RE ASKING FOR JUST A LITTLE OVER A MILLION THIS YEAR.

SEVEN HUNDRED AND SEVEN OF THAT THOUSAND IS IN CERTIFICATES OF OBLIGATION FOR 2022.

COUNTRY CLUB PARK ESTATES DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS.

FUNDING IS PROVIDED FOR THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF THIS PROJECT.

WE'RE FINISHING UP THE DESIGN THIS YEAR AND HOPEFULLY BIDDING THIS LATE THIS YEAR TO HOPEFULLY START CONSTRUCTION EITHER IN DECEMBER OR JANUARY OF NEXT YEAR.

WE'RE ASKING THREE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY ONE THOUSAND.

THE SCHEDULE WAS DELAYED APPROXIMATELY NINE MONTHS TO VALUE ENGINEER A BETTER LOCATION FOR THE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS.

THE ORIGINAL PROPOSAL, A RECOMMENDATION BY THE CONSULTANT, HAD THE LARGE PIPE AND DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS BEING INSTALLED DOWN SOME VERY TIGHT CORRIDORS ALONG ALLEYS THAT HAD RETAINING WALLS, SHEDS, FENCES.

AND IT WAS GOING TO BE A HUGE IMPACT TO THE PROPERTY OWNERS BECAUSE THEIR DRIVEWAYS WERE ALSO BACK THERE, AND WE ASKED THE CONSULTANT TO RECONFIGURE AND LOOK AT A DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

WHAT CAN WE DO DIFFERENTLY THAT MAY NOT HAVE A HUGE IMPACT TO THESE PROPERTY OWNERS? AND LO AND BEHOLD, WE HAD HAD A COMPLETELY REROUTING IN A DIFFERENT A FEW DIFFERENT LOCATIONS.

AND ULTIMATELY, WE NOW HAVE A TOTAL PROJECT SAVINGS OF ESTIMATED AROUND 1.2 MILLION BECAUSE OF THAT VALUED ENGINEERING.

IT COSTS US SOME TIME, BUT WE HAVE A MUCH BETTER COST ESTIMATE, AND WE THINK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A COST SAVINGS ON THIS PROJECT, BUT WE DO ANTICIPATE GETTING THIS DESIGNED IN BID LATE THIS YEAR AND HOPEFULLY CONSTRUCTION STARTING IN DECEMBER OF THIS YEAR.

[02:30:04]

GARVAN WEST INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT, OR INDUSTRIAL PARK.

AGAIN, THIS IS ONE SIMILAR TO GARLAND HEIGHTS, FREEMAN HEIGHTS, WHERE YOU CAN'T ADVERSELY IMPACT THE NEIGHBORS TO THE DOWNSTREAM.

I BELIEVE COUNCIL'S BEEN BRIEFED ON THIS BEFORE THIS.

THIS PROJECT WAS A LITTLE BIT DELAYED BECAUSE OF THAT TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE BEST SOLUTION WAS TO ALLEVIATE THE FLOODING PROBLEMS IN THE SUBDIVISION WITHOUT CAUSING DAMAGE DOWNSTREAM.

AND THE RESOLUTION WAS TO ACTUALLY ACQUIRE A FEW PROPERTIES FOR BETTER FLOODING PROTECTION FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SUBDIVISION.

THIS PROJECT IS SCHEDULED TO CONTINUE WITH DESIGN.

AND WE ANTICIPATE CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN MAY OF 2023.

BUT THE FUNDING THAT WE'RE REQUESTING THIS YEAR THREE POINT TWO SIX MILLION IS FOR THE DESIGN AND LAND ACQUISITION FOR THIS PROJECT.

SATURN SPRINGS ESTATES DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS WE'RE REQUESTING ONE POINT TWO FIVE MILLION ON THIS PROJECT AND AGAIN DETAILED DESIGN FOR THE SATURN SPRINGS ESTATES AREA, INCLUDING ALL THE STREETS THAT YOU SEE LISTED THERE LARRY, PATRICIA, BRIARWOOD, OVERHILL, SYCAMORE AND ASHWOOD.

THIS PROJECT ACTUALLY HAD A AN ADJUSTMENT AS WELL FOR TWO AND A HALF MILLION.

WHEN WE REMODELING WHAT YOU SEE IN BLUE.

THERE WE WERE, MODELING THIS WHOLE ENTIRE SUBDIVISION IN THE DRAINAGE, AND WHAT WE QUICKLY FOUND OUT WAS THERE WAS AN AREA WHERE WE HAD NO REPORTS OF FLOODING.

BUT WE SHOW ON ALL OF OUR DESIGN THAT THERE WERE ABOUT FIVE, MAYBE SIX PROPERTIES THAT HAD TO HAVE FLOODED AT SOME POINT WITH THE PROTECTION THAT THEY HAD.

THOSE HOMES HAD TO HAVE FLOODED AND SO WE WERE THINKING, WELL, WE NEED TO ADD THAT TO THAT BECAUSE WHY? WHY IMPROVE THE WHOLE AREA IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO IMPROVE THE FULL AREA THAT'S THIS DELINEATED? SO WE THE TWO AND A HALF MILLION IS TO EXTEND THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM OVER TO THOSE ADDITIONAL STREETS AND TO PUT THE PROPER PROTECTION IN FOR THOSE RESIDENTS AS WELL.

SO THAT'S THE REASON WE HAD THE ADJUSTMENT TO THIS PROJECT AND THAT THAT RESULTED IN TWO AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS OF ADDITIONAL WORK.

MONTCLAIR NUMBER TWO AND THREE FUNDING IS PROVIDED FOR THE FOR THE DETAILED DESIGN OF THIS PROJECT DOWN ON THE 5000 BLOCK OF LA JOLLA.

THIS PROJECT IS PENDING ACTUALLY TXDOT'S COMPLETED IMPROVEMENTS ALONG SIX THIRTY FIVE.

WE ANTICIPATE HAVING OUR PROJECT FULLY DESIGNED AND BID AND READY TO GO ABOUT THE TIME THAT TXDOT SHOULD GIVE US THE OK TO CONNECT TO THEIR PIPE.

WE ACTUALLY NEGOTIATED WITH TXDOT WHILE THEY WERE BUILDING OR THE DESIGN BUILD PROJECT TO ACTUALLY HAVE THEM STUB OUT A PIPE FOR US SO THAT WE DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO ENTER THEIR RIGHT OF WAY TO DIG AND INTERFERE WITH THEIR CONSTRUCTION.

THEY ACCOMMODATE US SO THEY'VE ACTUALLY STUBBED A PIPE OUT FOR US OR WILL BE STUBBING A PIPE OUT FOR US FOR THIS PROJECT SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE TXDOT END OF THIS.

SO THAT WAS THAT'S ACTUALLY A PLUS.

AND WITH THIS IN THE IN THE REVISED OPCC, WE WE RECOGNIZE POTENTIAL PROJECT SAVINGS ALMOST $900000.

SO THIS IS ANOTHER ONE THAT WE CAN'T WAIT TO GET ON THE GROUND AND CONSTRUCTING.

GATEWOOD DRAINAGE STUDY.

THIS IS ACTUALLY A NEW PROJECT.

AS A COUNCIL MAY RECALL, I GAVE A PRESENTATION.

I BELIEVE IT WAS IN DECEMBER OF 2020 TO THE COUNCIL CONCERNING GATEWOOD DRIVE OR GATEWOOD ROAD AND THE POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENTS TO GATEWOOD ROAD AND COUNCIL FOUND IT THAT IT WAS NECESSARY TO INCLUDE THE ARPA FUNDS FOR AT LEAST THE GATEWOOD DRAINAGE STUDY AT THAT TIME.

MY PRESENTATION I MENTIONED THAT WHEN WE IMPROVED GATEWOOD ROAD TO 100 YEAR PROTECTION, WHAT WOULD BE THE IMPACTS DOWNSTREAM? BECAUSE THAT SYSTEM ACTUALLY CROSSES BROADWAY BOULEVARD AND MIAMI DRIVE? AND THAT INFRASTRUCTURE WAS ACTUALLY PUT IN YEARS AGO.

AND IS IT SIZE BIG ENOUGH? IS IT? DO WE HAVE THIS CAPACITY IN BROADWAY AND OATES ROAD? WELL, THAT'S WHAT THE STUDY IS GOING TO PROVE OUT TO US THAT WHAT ARE THE DOWNSTREAM IMPACTS IF WE IMPROVE GATEWOOD TO WHAT WE NEED IT TO BE? AND CAN WE HANDLE THE DRAINAGE DOWNSTREAM SO THAT IF AND WHEN WE DO AND COUNCIL DECIDES TO TO IMPROVE GATEWOOD ROAD WE'LL HAVE THIS IN OUR HIP POCKET OF KNOWING, DO WE NEED TO DOWNSTREAM IMPROVEMENTS WITH THAT AT THE SAME TIME? SO THAT'S WHAT THIS DRAINAGE STRATEGY, STUDY AND ANALYSIS WILL ACTUALLY GIVE US THE INFORMATION ON, AS WELL AS AN OPCC FOR THAT ONE AS WELL.

HANG ON ONE SECOND.

[INAUDIBLE] MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS.

[02:35:01]

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

MAYOR, I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION.

MAYOR, I JUST WANT TO WANT TO EXPRESS MY THANKS TO THE MAYOR AND MY COUNCIL COLLEAGUES FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND MOVING FORWARD AND PUTTING THIS IN THE PACKAGE, AT LEAST TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS DRAINAGE STUDY.

MAYOR, SO THANK YOU, MICHAEL, FOR YOUR EXPERTISE AND YOUR GUIDANCE AND THANK YOU FOR I REMEMBER THE BRIEFING THAT YOU DID BACK.

IT SEEMS LIKE A LONG TIME AGO, BUT THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK ON THIS.

BUT I JUST WANTED TO EXPRESS THAT.

MAYOR, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

GO AHEAD.

LOCAL FLOODING PROGRAM.

AGAIN, THIS ISN'T DUE TO CREEK FLOODING.

THESE ARE JUST LOCALIZED FLOODING ISSUES IN SUBDIVISIONS AND AREAS WHERE THERE MAY NOT BE CAPACITY IN STORM SYSTEMS. CURRENTLY, THE TOP THREE THAT YOU SEE THERE MEADOW CREEK PARK, SHADY LANE AND FIELD NOBLE MEADOWCREEK PARK AND SHADY LANE.

I BELIEVE I KNOW MEADOWCREEK PARK IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

I THINK SHADY LANE IS AND FIELD KNOLL.

THE STREET DEPARTMENT JUST BID THAT PROJECT ALONG.

THEY HAVE STREET, THERE'RE STREETS, DRAINAGE AND UTILITIES IN THAT PROJECT.

THEY JUST BID THAT PROJECT AND IT WAS AWARDED AND I BELIEVE THAT'S GOING TO BE STARTING CONSTRUCTION RELATIVELY SOON.

SO THOSE THREE ARE ACTUALLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

AND THEN ASHVILLE COLONIAL AND TOBIN TRAIL IF COUNCIL REMEMBERS THIS PAST TUESDAY NIGHT WE JUST Y'ALL APPROVED THE DESIGN CONTRACT FOR THOSE THREE PROJECTS.

AND SO WE'RE REQUESTING TWO AND A HALF MILLION.

MOST OF IT'S FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THE FIRST THREE AND THEN ALSO THE DESIGN FOR THE OTHER THREE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE ON THE LIST HERE.

SO SUMMARY OF THE DRAINAGE PROJECTS GARLAND HEIGHTS, FREEMAN HEIGHTS, DRAINAGE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM, THE BRIDGE REMEDIATION, ET CETERA.

WE'RE ASKING FOR JUST OVER 12 MILLION FOR THESE PROJECTS AND DRAINAGE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE.

AGAIN, ONE THOUSAND SIX CARROLL DRIVE AT SIX TWENTY FIVE.

WE PLAN TO GET ACCOMPLISHED THIS YEAR.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, THE DESIGN FOR THE GABIONS ON SPRING CREEK BETWEEN JUPITER AND CAMPBELL WILL BE DESIGNED THIS YEAR AND CONSTRUCTION TO BE IN TWENTY THREE AND TWENTY FOUR.

AND THEN ON THE LOCAL FLOODING PROGRAM AGAIN, WE SHOULD BE COMPLETING MEADOWCREEK, SHADY LANE AND FIELD KNOLL ALL THIS YEAR.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, ASHVILLE AND COLONEL AND TOBIN WE'LL DESIGN THIS YEAR WITH CONSTRUCTION TO BE IN TWENTY THREE TWENTY FOUR.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE GRAPHICALLY, WHERE ALL THESE PROJECTS STAND, MOST OF THEM ARE GOING TO BE COMPLETED IN TWENTY FOUR, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS AND FLOOD PRONE PROPERTIES, FLOOD PRONE PROPERTIES FUND ON HERE, BUT THAT'S AN ONGOING PROJECT AS WELL.

BUT WITH THAT ROSEHILL ROAD STREETSCAPE.

THIS THIS PROJECT ADDED SLIDE IS FROM THE COUNCIL APPROVED THIS PROJECT, I BELIEVE BACK IN SEPTEMBER OR AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER, I BELIEVE, IS WHEN IT WAS.

AND THIS IS THIS IS PART OF A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT THAT WE WERE GOING TO BE ADDING STREETSCAPE.

WE CAME BACK WITH A CHANGE ORDER, COUNCIL APPROVED CHANGE ORDER TO GET ALL THE STREETSCAPE DONE.

THIS ACTUALLY CONNECTS TO THE BOBTOWN ROAD HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL, WHICH WILL ACTUALLY CONNECT TO THE THE ROWLETT ROAD CYCLE TRACK AND ALL THE AND ALL THE TRAILS THAT WE'RE BUILDING IN THIS AREA.

AND THIS IS A MAJOR CORRIDOR FOR THE ECONOMIC REDEVELOPMENT AREA AND IN THE ENHANCED AREA FOR THIS ROSEHILL STREETSCAPE PROJECT.

WE'RE WE REQUESTED ADDITIONAL MILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDING BACK IN SEPTEMBER.

IT WAS IN SEPTEMBER TO COMPLETE THE CONSTRUCTION, THE MATERIALS TESTING FOR THE PROJECT, AND THIS ONE SHOULD BE UNDERWAY PRETTY SOON.

WE JUST HAD THE PRE BID OR PRE CON MEETING ABOUT A WEEK AGO, SO THIS SHOULD BE UNDER CONSTRUCTION SOON.

AND SO SUMMARY OF THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IS ONE POINT ONE FIVE OR ONE POINT ONE TWO MILLION FOR THIS PROJECT.

SO NOW I APOLOGIZE.

I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE ON THE DRAINAGE PROJECTS AND THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR THIS PORTION? I SEE NONE.

THANK YOU.

AND THAT WILL MOVE US FORWARD TO TRANSPORTATION.

MR. LUEDTKE.

WELL, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT OUR TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS FOR THE 2022 YEAR.

THE FIRST PROJECT.

I'LL JUST JUST BRIEFLY, ALL OF OUR PROJECTS ARE PROGRAMS ARE ONGOING PROGRAMS, AND THAT'S HOW WE MAINLY FUND OUR THE REPLACEMENT OF ALL OUR ALL OF OUR EQUIPMENT.

[02:40:02]

MOST OF OUR EQUIPMENT IS VERY LONG TERM AND IT LASTS 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 YEARS SOMETIMES, BUT IT DOESN'T LAST FOREVER.

AND SO IT HAS TO BE REPLACED AT SOME POINT.

THE FIRST ONE THAT WE'VE GOT IS OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES SIGNAL EQUIPMENT PROGRAM THAT PRIMARILY FUNDS OUR OFF-COM SYSTEM, WHICH IS A IT'S HOW THE FIRE TRUCKS PREEMPT THE SIGNALS TO TURN THEM GREEN SO THAT THEY CAN THEY CAN TRAVEL THROUGH WITHOUT HAVING TO STOP.

THE SYSTEM THAT WE'VE GOT IN PLACE NOW IS WAS WAS PUT IN, PROBABLY IN THE 80S 90S.

IT USES THE OLDER TECHNOLOGY.

IT'S WORKED VERY WELL OVER THE YEARS, BUT SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THAT THEY HAVE WITH IT, OF COURSE, ARE REALLY THE ONGOING MAINTENANCE.

AND THE WAY IT WORKS IS IT'S BASICALLY TO SIMPLIFY THINGS.

IT'S LIKE A STROBE LIGHT THAT HAS A CERTAIN FREQUENCY INTERRUPTS THE SIGNAL.

IF THE IF THERE'S SPIDER WEBS, SPIDERS ARE KIND OF THE MAIN PROBLEM.

THE SPIDER WEBS GET IN THERE AND THEY BUILD A NEST AND BUILD BUILD WEBS THAT BLOCK THE LIGHT FROM GETTING IN.

IT DOESN'T WORK.

SO THIS IS MOVING IT TO A GPS BASED SYSTEM THAT WOULDN'T WOULDN'T HAVE THE MAINTENANCE ISSUES THAT WE HAD BEFORE.

AND JUST TO DISPEL THE URBAN LEGEND, YOU CAN'T FLASH YOUR HIGH BEAMS AT THESE THINGS AND SET THEM OFF.

NO, THAT DOES NOT WORK.

IT'S IT IS.

IT'S A CERTAIN FREQUENCY.

IN FACT, CERTAIN FIRE TRUCKS OUTSIDE THE CITY CAN'T EVEN PREEMPT.

SO EVERYBODY STOP, STOP HITTING, TRYING TO HIT THESE WITH YOUR HIGH BEAMS AS YOU'RE TO CHANGE THE LIGHTS WHERE IT DOESN'T WORK.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND ALSO DON'T BUY THE LITTLE UNITS ON EBAY THAT THAT WORK EITHER.

RIGHT.

SO THE NEXT THE NEXT PROJECT IS THE BOTTLENECK PROJECTS.

THIS IS HAS BEEN WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR A FEW YEARS NOW, AND THIS YEAR WE'LL WE'LL ACTUALLY START THE FIRST SIX INTERSECTIONS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

THEY'RE LISTED HERE BROADWAY AND 30, GARLAND AND 190, CAMPBELL AND 190, FOREST AND JUPITER, APOLLO AND GARLAND AND BUCKINGHAM AND PLANO.

SO WE'LL START THOSE THIS SUMMER UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

AND AND THIS IS THIS IS THE FIRST TWO PACKAGES OF FOUR PACKAGES THAT WILL BE WILL BE ADVANCING.

THE NEXT ONE IS OPERATIONAL SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS.

THIS IS A PROGRAM WE HAVE TO TO DO SOME VERY MINOR PROJECTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY AS THINGS COME UP IS THINGS LIKE PUTTING GUARDRAILS OR EXPANDING CURB RETURN, THINGS LIKE THAT.

THE MAIN THE MAIN ISSUE HERE.

THIS FOR THIS NEXT YEAR WOULD BE BUILDING MEDIAN LEFT TURN LANE INTO TUCKERVILLE PARK.

AND THEN ALSO, AS YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT AN ADA PLAN.

WE'RE UPDATING OUR ADA PLAN FOR THE CITY THAT SHOULD BE COMPLETED THIS YEAR, AND WE'LL HAVE THERE'LL BE SOME WORK THAT WILL COME OUT OF THAT TO IMPROVE OUR NOT JUST RAMPS, BUT A LOT OF THINGS AROUND THE CITY.

AND THIS IS MONEY THAT WE'VE GOT SET ASIDE TO TO DO THAT.

PAUL, CAN I ASK YOU, CAN YOU PULL THE MIC UP A LITTLE BIT TOWARDS YOU THERE? IT'S FOR OUR ZOOM, OUR ZOOM, FOLKS.

IS THAT BETTER? I HAVE.

HELLO.

I HAVE TO WAIT FOR THEIR REACTION.

GO AHEAD.

OK, SO THE NEXT ONE IS OUR TRAFFIC SIGNAL EQUIPMENT MODERNIZATION.

THIS IS REALLY TO UPGRADE THE EQUIPMENT AT THE INTERSECTIONS THEMSELVES.

THE PRIMARY THING WE'RE UPGRADING THESE THE NEXT FEW YEARS IS THE ARE THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL CABINETS, WHICH IS THE BIG SILVER BOX BY THE INTERSECTION.

IT'S ESSENTIALLY, IF YOU CAN THINK OF IT LIKE AN APPLIANCE, LIKE A LIKE A REFRIGERATOR.

IT'S THESE THE ONES THAT ARE OUT THERE NOW WERE PUT IN IN 1989.

AND SO THEY'RE 30 PLUS YEARS OLD NOW, AND THEY'RE JUST THEY'RE JUST WEARING OUT AND NEED TO BE REPLACED.

SO ALONG WITH THAT, THE WIRING WE'RE FINDING IS THE INSULATION HAS GOTTEN BRITTLE.

AND SO THAT'S ALL CRACKING, CAUSING PROBLEMS. SO WE'RE REPLACING THAT.

AT THE SAME TIME, SOME OF THE SIGNAL POLES AND MAST ARMS NEED TO BE UPGRADED.

SO THOSE TYPES OF THINGS.

THE TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM IS THE IS REALLY MORE THE OVERALL SYSTEM.

IT'S THE SIGNAL SOFTWARE THAT TALKS TO ALL THE SIGNALS, THE PRIMARY COST FOR FOR THESE AND GOING FORWARD IN THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO IS GOING TO BE UPGRADING OUR OLD COPPER TELEPHONE WIRES THAT WE'VE BEEN USING SINCE 1974 TO TALK TO THE SIGNALS TO TO THE MORE MODERN FIBER OPTICS.

AND LASTLY, THE NEW TRAFFIC SIGNAL INSTALLATIONS, WE WE PUT SIGNALS, WE PUT MONEY IN HERE EACH YEAR TO.

WE ALWAYS ANTICIPATE THERE BEING ONE OR TWO SIGNALS THAT WILL COME UP DURING THE

[02:45:03]

YEAR THAT NEED TO BE INSTALLED.

THAT'S PRIMARILY WHAT THIS IS FOR.

WE DO HAVE SOME FUNDS IN THERE TO REPLACE THE THE SIGNALS DOWNTOWN, WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT HAPPEN.

SO OVERALL, THE LIKE, I SAID, THESE ARE THESE ARE PROGRAMS, AND SO THEY'RE ALL ONGOING.

WHAT WE'RE SHOWING HERE IS HOW FAR THE FUNDING IS EXPECTED TO LAST UNTIL WE HOPEFULLY HAVE ANOTHER BOND PROGRAM TO REPLENISH THAT.

OVERALL, WE'RE ASKING FOR JUST OVER 13 AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS, JUST UNDER HALF OF THAT'S THE BOTTLENECK IMPROVEMENTS.

AND OF COURSE, WE'VE GOT THE OTHER ITEMS HERE SO THAT I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

ALL RIGHT.

VERY GOOD.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, AND THANK YOU, PAUL.

JUST A QUESTION SINCE I DON'T SEE IT LISTED HERE WITH OUR TRAFFIC SIGNAL EQUIPMENT MODERNIZATION AND TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM UPGRADES ARE AUDIBLE CROSSINGS INCLUDED IN ANY OF THESE? IS THAT PART OF A PLAN OVERALL PLAN? I KNOW YOU'VE VERY KINDLY TAKEN CARE OF A LOT OF THE DOWNTOWN CROSSINGS BECAUSE I HAVE A NUMBER OF BLIND CONSTITUENTS WHO NAVIGATE THOSE STREETS.

IS THERE A BIGGER CITYWIDE PLAN FOR HAVING AUDIBLE CROSSINGS IN OTHER AREAS TO MAKE THEM SAFER FOR PEOPLE WHO MIGHT HAVE DISABILITIES? WE'VE ACTUALLY BEEN HAVING A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THAT HERE LATELY.

WE ARE FOR SURE.

ALL OF THE DOWNTOWN SIGNALS ANY OF THE ONES YOU KNOW, WITHIN WALNUT, BD, GARLAND AND FIRST, ANYTHING ANYTHING WITHIN THERE WILL DEFINITELY ANYTHING WE UPGRADE WILL DEFINITELY GET THOSE AND ACTUALLY WORKING.

THAT'S PART OF THE MODERNIZATION THIS NEXT YEAR WILL BE TO INCLUDE THOSE.

OKAY.

AS FAR AS THE CITY WIDE, WE'RE STILL HAVING DISCUSSIONS AND THAT'LL THAT'LL REALLY COME OUT OF THE ADA PLAN AS FAR AS WHAT WE WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

WE ALWAYS DO IT ANY.

ANYWHERE SOMEONE REQUESTS IT, WE'LL GO PUT IT IN.

THAT'S OUR CURRENT POLICY THAT MAY CHANGE AS AS A PART OF THIS ADA PLAN AS WE GO FORWARD.

OKAY.

WELL, THANK YOU.

I JUST I DIDN'T SEE THAT SPECIFIED HERE, BUT THAT'S A QUESTION I GET AT FAIRLY REGULAR INTERVALS.

SO I'M GLAD THAT'S ON THE RADAR AND GLAD WE'RE WE'RE MOVING IN THAT DIRECTION, AND I DO APPRECIATE VERY MUCH THE CROSSINGS THAT YOU'VE INSTALLED IN THE DOWNTOWN FOR MY CONSTITUENTS WHO NAVIGATE THOSE STREETS REGULARLY.

SO THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

PAUL ON BUCKINGHAM AND PLANO ROAD.

IS THAT JUST THE SOUTH PART OF IT OF THE INTERSECTION? IT'S [INAUDIBLE] I DON'T HAVE ALL OF THEM ONTO ON THE TOP OF MY HEAD IS WHAT WE'RE ADDING.

BUT I KNOW I KNOW AT THAT PARTICULAR INTERSECTION IT WILL HAVE DUAL LEFTS AND RIGHT TURN LANES IN ALL DIRECTIONS.

SO WHATEVER IT DOESN'T HAVE NOW IS.

WELL.

THE OTHER SIDE IS RICHARDSON.

WE'RE COORDINATING WITH RICHARDSON ON IT.

OH, OK.

AND WHAT ABOUT ON FOREST LANE? THE SAME THING.

ALL FOUR.

NO FOREST LANE, IT WILL NOT HAVE FOREST LANE, WE ARE WHAT WE'RE DOING RIGHT TURN LANES HAVE AN ADDITIONAL RIGHT TURN LANE.

GO NORTH.

EASTBOUND, WESTBOUND AND NORTHBOUND AND THEN A DUAL LEFT NORTHBOUND.

OK, OK, OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANKS, SIR.

EXCUSE ME.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

PAUL, I DIDN'T SEE IT HERE, BUT I DID WANT TO CONFIRM AS PART OF THE SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS ON ON MILLER WE ARE GOING TO DO OR WE THINK WE'VE COME UP WITH A WAY TO DO LEFT TURN LANES AT GLENBROOK, BOTH EAST AND WESTBOUND FROM MILLER.

IS THAT? THAT BUT IT'S NOT.

I DON'T SEE IT HERE, SO.

I KNOW THAT'S IN THE WORKS.

THAT MAY BE, I DON'T KNOW IF MICHAEL'S STILL HERE OR NOT, BUT MAYBE A QUESTION FOR MICHAEL.

I KOW MICHAEL'S WORKING ON THAT.

OK.

YEAH, I KNOW WE'RE WORKING ON THAT.

OK, GREAT.

THANK YOU.

OK.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

PAUL THE DIGITAL REFLECTING SIGNAGE THAT PUTS THE YOU SPEED THE FLASHING ONES THAT YOU AND I'VE HAVE TALKED ABOUT.

ANY ANY THOUGHTS MOVING FORWARD OF INCLUDING THAT FOR A PUBLIC SAFETY STANDPOINT? AND I NOTICED, I THINK, TO SUPPLEMENT OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT, PARTICULARLY NOTICE AROUND SCHOOL ZONES.

I MEAN, PEOPLE JUST, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE FLYING UP TO THEM AND FLYING THROUGH THEM.

AND YOU AND I HAVE TALKED, YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT ONE OUT ON LA PRADA THAT GETS FOLKS ATTENTION.

ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT LOOKING AT THAT, EVEN FROM A PILOT'S PERSPECTIVE, USING

[02:50:02]

THAT AS A PART OF THESE UPGRADES AND SOME OF OUR STREETS WHERE WE DON'T NECESSARILY NEED A FULL SIGNAL LIGHT, BUT THOSE KIND OF SIGNS ANY ANY THOUGHTS ALONG THOSE LINES? WE HAVE TWO THAT I KNOW OF IN THE CITY RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW THE POLICE DEPARTMENT ACTUALLY PUT SOME OF THOSE OUT AS WELL.

THE AND THAT'S SOMETHING WE LOOK AT ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS.

SO I THINK WE CAN CERTAINLY IF THERE'S SPECIFIC LOCATIONS THAT YOU'RE INTERESTED IN, WE CAN WE CAN LOOK AT THOSE AS WELL.

AND THEN WE LOOKED AT THE ONE ON, I THINK IT WAS COLUMBIA WAS ONE OF THEM.

SO WE'VE GOT SOME PORTABLE SPEED TRAILERS.

ONE OF THEM GOT DESTROYED.

WE'RE BUYING A NEW ONE OF THOSE, BUT THOSE ARE PORTABLE AND TEMPORARY.

I THINK WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING MORE PERMANENT SO.

I CAN SEND YOU OK.

SOME POSSIBLE LOCATIONS THAT I THINK THOSE WOULD BE WOULD BE HELPFUL.

OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

OK.

ALL RIGHT, ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ON THIS SECTION? ALL RIGHT.

I SEE NONE, COUNCIL AT THIS POINT WE'RE AT KIND OF A PRETTY CLEAN BREAKING POINT.

AND I BELIEVE LUNCH IS BEING SET UP AS WE SPEAK.

SO BEFORE WE MOVE FORWARD WITH LANDFILL AND SANITATION, WE WILL TAKE A LUNCH BREAK.

LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY BACK HERE BECAUSE I THINK THEY'RE STILL SETTING IT UP AT THE MOMENT.

LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY BACK HERE AT 12 O'CLOCK, PLEASE.

TWELVE O'CLOCK.

[INAUDIBLE], IT IS 12:15.

WE ARE BACK FROM RECESS.

WE ARE IN A SPECIAL MEETING ON JANUARY 22, 2022 FOR A REVIEW OF OUR PROPOSED CIP.

WE ARE AT LANDFILL.

CHRIS? THANK YOU MAYOR AND COUNCIL FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

LET'S HEAR WE GO.

RECORDING IN PROGRESS.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA.

THANK YOU.

OUR FIRST SLIDE FOR THE LANDFILL REQUEST IS REPLACEMENT OF HEAVY EQUIPMENT.

THESE ARE EQUIPMENT THAT WE USE EVERY DAY.

THEIR REACHED THE END OF THEIR USEFUL LIFE THERE ON OUR REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE REGULAR ROUTINE REPLACEMENTS AT THIS TIME.

THE THERE ARE THREE ITEMS, TWO SEPARATE PIECES OF EQUIPMENT.

THE FIRST ONE IS A BULLDOZER, A D6 CLASS BULLDOZER, WHICH IS A MEDIUM SIZED MACHINE AND TWO DUMP TRUCKS, AND THE TOTAL COST FOR 2022 ON FOR THOSE THREE ITEMS IS TWO POINT THREE MILLION.

THESE ITEMS ARE USED PRIMARILY FOR DAILY COVER OPERATIONS.

THE TRUCKS HAUL THE DIRT AND THE DOZER SPREADS IT.

WE USE THEM FOR ALSO OTHER SITE MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES.

DITCH BUILDING, ROADS, COVERING SLOPES WITH INTERMEDIATE COVER.

ALSO, THESE ARE ROUTINE REPLACEMENTS FOR NORMAL EQUIPMENT.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS NEW LANDFILL EQUIPMENT, SO THESE ARE ITEMS THAT WE'RE PROPOSING TO ADD TO THE COMPLEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AT THE LANDFILL.

THE FIRST ONE IS A NEW COMPACTOR, AN ADDITIONAL COMPACTOR.

THE REASON BEHIND THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE EVER INCREASING VOLUMES OF TRASH THAT WE RECEIVE AT THE LANDFILL.

IT CREEPS UP A LITTLE EACH YEAR, ONE OR TWO PERCENT STEADILY.

YOU RECALL A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WE HAD COMPLETED A STUDY OF THE WASTE SHED.

SO LOOKING AT THE POTENTIAL OF WASTE IN OUR REGION AND HOW THAT MIGHT GROW AND THE STUDIES AT THOSE TIMES POINTED OUT THAT WE SUPPORT HAVING THIS AMOUNT OF EQUIPMENT BOTH OPERATIONALLY AND FINANCIALLY.

SO WE'RE PROPOSING TO ADD THE COMPACTOR AT THIS TIME.

THE SECOND PIECE OF EQUIPMENT IS A SKID LOADER, WHICH IS SORT OF A SMALL SIZED TRACK LOADER.

THERE ARE STILL A COUPLE OF A FEW AREAS ON THE LANDFILL THAT ARE HARD FOR US TO GET TO TO MAINTAIN DRAINAGE AND COVER AND DO MAINTENANCE WORK.

THAT'S JUST A LITTLE TOO BIG FOR A SHOVEL AND A LITTLE TOO SMALL FOR THE OTHER TRACTORS THAT WE HAVE.

MOWING IS ANOTHER USE THAT WE'LL HAVE FOR THIS SLOPE MOWING THAT WE CAN'T GET TO WITH OUR CURRENT EQUIPMENT.

SO THAT'S THE REASON FOR ADDING THE SKID LOADER TO OUR EQUIPMENT COMPLEMENT.

THE REQUEST FOR THAT IS ONE POINT FIVE MILLION FOR THOSE TWO PIECES OF EQUIPMENT.

THE NEXT SLIDE IS CONSTRUCTION OF OUR NEWEST NEXT WASTE CELL.

IT WOULD BE WASTE CELL NUMBER NINE.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE DIAGRAM THERE.

THE BLUE STRIP IS THE CURRENT WASTE CELL NUMBER EIGHT, AND SO NUMBER NINE IS

[02:55:01]

IN RED AND CELL EIGHT IS SLATED TO LAST FOR ABOUT ONE MORE YEAR.

SO IT'S NECESSARY FOR US TO CONSTRUCT OUR NEXT CELL BEFORE THE END OF THIS YEAR.

YOU'LL ALSO NOTICE I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THE WASTE CELL NINE IS TWICE THE SIZE OF WASTE CELL EIGHT, AND THIS REPRESENTS A CHANGE IN PHILOSOPHY OF HOW WE'RE OPERATING THE LANDFILL.

THE LONG SKINNY CELLS, LIKE NUMBER EIGHT ARE DIFFICULT TO OPERATE IN, ESPECIALLY WITH THE RISING AMOUNT OF WASTE THAT'S COMING IN.

IT CAUSES US TO HAVE A SMALL AREA TO WORK ON AND MOVING TRAFFIC AND HAVING PLACES FOR BIG TRUCKS TO TURN AROUND IS A CHALLENGE.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT HAVING A BIGGER WASTE CELL THAT WILL ENABLE US TO OPEN UP THAT WORK AREA.

WE'LL BE ABLE TO MOVE SEPARATE THE BIG TRUCKS FROM THE LITTLE TRUCKS, CONTINUE TO TAKE THE RISING AMOUNTS OF WASTE.

AND WITH THE ADDED COMPACTOR, WE'LL BE RUNNING TWO MACHINES AT ONCE, WHICH THIS WILL ALSO HELP THAT AND WILL ENABLE US TO DO SOME OPERATIONAL CHANGES THAT WILL FURTHER INCREASE OUR COMPACTION DENSITY.

SO THOSE ARE THE OPERATIONAL REASONS WHY WE ARE PROPOSING SUCH A NEW BIG CELL AND ALSO FINANCIALLY THIS WILL THIS CELL WILL BE ABLE TO LAST AT LEAST SIX YEARS, PROBABLY MORE SO WE WON'T HAVE TO HAVE MORE FUNDING FOR WASTE CELL DEVELOPMENT FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS IN THE FUTURE.

THERE'S THE REASON WHY THOSE ARE THE TWO REASONS WHY WE'RE PROPOSING TO DOUBLE THE SIZE OF OUR WASTE CELL.

WE'RE LOOKING AT STARTING THAT CONSTRUCTION NEXT MONTH.

WE'VE ALREADY DONE THE PROCUREMENT.

WE'VE GOT PROPOSALS.

WE SELECTED A CONTRACTOR, WE'RE WORKING ON CONTRACTING.

SO WE ANTICIPATE HAVING THIS PROJECT START.

PROBABLY IN MARCH.

WE'LL BE ABLE TO START PUTTING WASTE IN THERE AROUND JULY, AND WE'LL COMPLETE THE CONSTRUCTION IN OCTOBER.

SO THAT'S THE PLAN FOR WASTE CELL NUMBER NINE.

IT IS A TOTAL COST OF FIVE POINT NINE MILLION DOLLARS.

AND MY NEXT SLIDE IS LAND ACQUISITION AND PERMIT AMENDMENT, SO ANOTHER PROJECT THAT I'M I KNOW YOU'RE WELL AWARE OF, WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR A WHILE.

WE'VE ACQUIRED A PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT WE'RE LOOKING TO EXPAND INTO, AND WE'RE GETTING READY TO MOVE TOWARDS HAVING AN APPLICATION BEFORE THE TCEQ TO EXPAND OUR PERMIT.

SO THE MONIES THAT WE'RE PROPOSING THIS YEAR ARE GOING TO GO TOWARDS THAT.

THEY WILL BE USED FOR LAND CHARACTERIZATION, SUBSURFACE GEOLOGIC AND HYDRO GEOLOGIC STUDIES OF THAT LAND.

ENGINEERING, CONSULTING, COORDINATING WITH VARIOUS AGENCIES TO HELP PUT OUR APPLICATION TOGETHER.

THIS PROJECT, WHEN WE'RE COMPLETE, WILL PRETTY CLOSE TO DOUBLE THE LIFE OF THE LANDFILL.

IT'S ABOUT A 30 YEAR LIFESPAN NOW.

WILL LOOK LIKE 60 YEARS WHEN THIS IS COMPLETE.

IT'S HARD TO PREDICT THAT FAR INTO THE FUTURE, BUT THE ENGINEERING CALCULATIONS SUPPORT THOSE NUMBERS.

I KNOW YOU'RE ALL WELL AWARE OF THAT, SO JUST THE FUNDING REQUEST FOR THIS YEAR IS SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND ADDITIONAL DOLLARS TOWARDS THAT PROJECT.

SO OUR TOTAL REQUEST IS A LITTLE OVER 12 AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS FOR 2022.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS SECTION? COUNCILMAN VERA.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

CHRIS, I WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU AND YOUR CREW AND ESPECIALLY YOU FOR DOING A TREMENDOUS JOB WITH THE LANDFILL.

THANK YOU SIR.

ESPECIALLY ALL THE WORK YOU HAVE DONE.

APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ANY ADDITIONAL EXCUSE ME, ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? WE'VE CLEARED THE QUEUE.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

AND THAT WILL BRING US TO SANITATION, MURIEL.

THANK YOU.

GOOD AFTERNOON, MR. MAYOR, MR. BRADFORD COUNCIL.

MY NAME IS MURIEL [INAUDIBLE], AND I'LL BE GIVING YOU THE 2022 CIP PROPOSED, THE FUNDING REQUEST FOR THE SANITATION DEPARTMENT.

SO THE FIRST REQUEST THAT WE HAVE IN FRONT OF YOU IS THE REQUEST FOR FUNDING FOR FIVE SIDELOADED TRUCKS.

THIS ARE THE VEHICLES THAT YOU SEE IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS PICKING UP THE TRASH EVERY DAY.

ON AVERAGE, THIS TRUCKS, EVERY DRIVER PICKS UP ABOUT NINE HUNDRED AND TWENTY CANS A DAY, SO YOU SEE A LOT OF ACTIVITY.

WE HAVE 17 COLLECTION ROUTES AND WE SERVICE ALMOST SIXTY THREE THOUSAND CUSTOMERS ON A WEEKLY BASIS.

[03:00:01]

A LOT OF ACTIVITY AND THIS IS BASICALLY THE EXACT SAME VEHICLE, BUT THIS ONE IS JUST ONE SIDE LOADER FOR THE RESIDENTIAL COLLECTIONS.

WE SERVICE ABOUT FORTY ONE THOUSAND CUSTOMERS EVERY TWO WEEKS, AND EVERY DRIVER PICKS UP ABOUT SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY CONTAINERS PER SHIFT.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT THOSE TWO NUMBERS FOR RESIDENTIAL TRASH AND RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING, YOU'RE LOOKING AT AROUND EIGHTY THOUSAND COLLECTIONS EVERY WEEK.

THIS IS ONE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT WAS NOT ON THE REPLACEMENT CYCLE.

I ADDED THESE COMMERCIAL FRONT LOADERS.

THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE REPLACED NEXT YEAR.

HOWEVER, OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS WE'VE ADDED ALMOST SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY NEW COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS THAT GENERATE WELL OVER $500000 IN REVENUE PER YEAR.

SO NOW WE'RE SERVICING A LOT MORE ACCOUNTS TO THE POINT THAT WE HAVE TO WE HAVE TO MOVE UP THE REPLACEMENT CYCLE FOR THESE VEHICLES.

BUT THE GOOD THING, LIKE I SAID, NOW, THE REASON FOR THIS, IT'S NOT JUST THE THEIR ON THE REPLACEMENT CYCLE, WE'RE SERVICING MORE CUSTOMERS, WHICH IS BRINGING MORE REVENUE TO THE CITY.

WE'RE ALSO ASKING FOR FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF KNUCKLE BOOMS IN THE BRUSH AND BULKY DIVISION.

THESE ARE MY QUARTERBACKS.

IF I HAD TO COMPARE THE BRUSH AND BULKY DIVISION TO A FOOTBALL TEAM, THIS IS IT.

THIS IS THE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT WHEN I GET EMAILS FROM SOME OF YOU THAT A LANDLORD JUST PUT EVERYTHING ON THE CURB AND THEY DID IT ON THE MONDAY AND THE COLLECTION DAY'S ON FRIDAY.

AND YOU DON'T WANT IT OUT THERE.

I SEND THE QUARTERBACK OUT THERE AND YOU TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS.

AS YOU ALL KNOW, WE ARE ONE OF THE VERY FEW CITIES THAT DO WEEKLY BRUSH AND BULKY COLLECTIONS.

THIS IS A PREMIUM SERVICE, AND IT SHOWS CITIZENS ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE.

AND OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS WE'VE SEEN AN INCREASE IN TONNAGE OF ALMOST 10000 TONS PER YEAR.

AND THIS IS A BRUSH LONG TRUCK, BASICALLY, THEY GO ALONG WITH THE KNUCKLE BOOM, SO EVERY TIME YOU SEE THE BRUSH AND BULKY DIVISION OUT IN THE STREETS, YOU WILL SEE THE KNUCKLE BOOM ON ONE SIDE OF THE STREET AND THEN THIS TRUCK RIGHT NEXT TO IT.

AND WE'LL BASICALLY USE IT TO LOAD THE MATERIALS, BRING IN AND TAKE THEM DIRECTLY TO THE LANDFILL.

AND NOW WE'RE ALSO ASKING FOR FUNDING FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF TWO TRANSFER TRAILERS.

SO SOME OF YOU HAVE VISITED ME AT THE TRANSFER STATION AND I SHOW YOU AROUND AND CAN I EXPLAIN TO YOU HOW THE OPERATION WORKS.

AND AND IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT AS SIDE LOADERS, THE FIRST VEHICLE THAT I SHOW YOU, THEY HAVE A CAPACITY OF TWENTY THREE CUBIC YARDS.

THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT HAS A CAPACITY OF 60.

SO INSTEAD OF OUR SIDE LOADERS, SENDING THREE SIDE LOADERS ALL THE WAY TO THE LANDFILL, GET IN LINE, GET TO THE WORK PHASE AND THEN GO BACK OUT TO THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

THEY COME TO THE TRANSFER STATION.

WE LOAD ONE OF THESE AND THEN THIS IS THE VEHICLE THAT WE SEND TO THE TO THE LANDFILL.

SO AS FAR AS EFFICIENCY, IT IS VERY EFFICIENT TO USE THIS AND THAT'S THE PURPOSE OF THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

AND THE LAST REQUEST THAT I HAVE FOR YOU IS THIS IS A CLAMSHELL LOADER.

BASICALLY, THIS IS LIKE A SMALL CRANE INSIDE OF THE TRANSFER STATION.

WHENEVER THE TRANSFER TRUCKS PULL UNDER THE TRANSFER STATION.

THIS IS WHAT WE USED TO PACK AND COMPACT THE TRASH THAT'S LOADED ONTO THE TRANSFER STATION.

IN THE LAST THREE YEARS THAT I'VE BEEN WORKING IN THE SANITATION DEPARTMENT, I'VE NOTICED THAT JUST ABOUT EVERY SIX TO EIGHT MONTHS, THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT BREAKS DOWN.

WHEN THAT HAPPENS, WE CANNOT OPERATE THE TRANSFER STATION, SO WE BASICALLY HAVE TO SEND EVERYONE TO THE LANDFILL.

SO I REACHED OUT TO THE TO THE FLEET DEPARTMENT TO DO A COST ANALYSIS JUST OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS ON THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

AND WE FOUND OUT THAT IT'S COSTING US MORE TO CONTINUE MAINTAINING THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAN TO GET A NEW ONE.

SO THAT'S THE REASON FOR THIS FOR THIS REQUEST.

IN TOTAL, THE SANITATION DEPARTMENT IS REQUESTING JUST A LITTLE OVER FIVE POINT SIX MILLION DOLLARS.

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

VERY GOOD.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION.

MURIEL, I JUST WANTED TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS.

DID YOU SAY YOU ADDED OVER 600 COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS? CORRECT OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS.

YES, THAT IS OUTSTANDING.

I KNOW THAT WAS AN AREA WE WERE REALLY DEFICIENT IN BEFORE, AND I KNOW THAT DIDN'T JUST HAPPEN MAGICALLY BY PEOPLE ON THEIR OWN CALLING.

SO VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

AND AS FAR AS EFFICIENCY, WITH THE TRANSFER TRAILER IN YOUR USUAL MANNER OF BEING

[03:05:05]

EFFICIENT, THAT JUST MAKES COMPLETE SENSE.

SO THANK YOU FOR PUTTING THIS TOGETHER.

THANK YOU FOR BEING GOOD AT NOTICING EFFICIENCIES.

AND AND AGAIN, WELL DONE ABOUT ADDING THE COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS THAT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

I'M SORRY.

GO AHEAD.

YOUR HOW MANY? I KNOW YOU SAID COMMERCIAL ACCOUNTS.

HOW MANY RESIDENTIAL ACCOUNTS? WE'RE SERVICING ABOUT SIXTY THREE THOUSAND EVERY WEEK.

HAVE YOU COUNT HOW MANY YOU HAVE ADDED? IT VARIES.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE MOVING IN AND MOVING OUT, HONESTLY, ALMOST EVERY DAY.

BUT EVERY MONTH, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE TRACK ON A MONTHLY REPORT AND THE AVERAGE RIGHT NOW IS JUST LITTLE OVER SIXTY THREE THOUSAND EVERY WEEK.

OK.

OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND NOT I SAY THE SAME THING AS COUNCILMAN MORRIS SAID.

YOU'VE DONE YOU AND YOUR CREW.

YOU AND OZZY HAD DONE A TREMENDOUS JOB.

APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

VERY GOOD.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

JUST GOOD AFTERNOON NOW, YOUR COUPLE OF THINGS.

KUDOS ON THE QUARTERBACK.

I MEAN, YOU'VE GOT A WINNER CONTESTED AND THANK YOU FOR FOR YOUR RESPONSIVENESS, YOUR QUICK RESPONSE.

WE USE THE WE'VE CALLED THE QUARTERBACK TO CALL PLAYS A NUMBER OF TIMES IN DISTRICT FOUR, AND YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN THERE, EVEN WHEN YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE THERE, YOU KNOW, AND I KNOW YOU, YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT OUR ROCK DAY OR ANYTHING, BUT BUT YOU AND YOUR TEAM HAVE BEEN RESPONSIVE TO ALL OF OUR REQUESTS BECAUSE PARTICULARLY IN RESPONSE TO CONTRACTORS ARE DUMPING STUFF OUT.

SO I WANT TO HEAR FROM MY CONSTITUENTS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSIVENESS.

ON THE VEHICLES.

CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE THE THE MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS THAT COMES WITH THESE VEHICLES? AND IS THAT DONE PRETTY MUCH INTERNALLY BY OUR FLEET FOLK OR IS THAT DONE EXTERNALLY BY CONTRACT? CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THAT? EXPECT JUST A LITTLE BIT.

INITIALLY, THEY HAVE A WARRANTY PERIOD.

I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IF IT'S TWO YEARS, BUT I THINK IT'S TWO YEARS.

EVERYTHING OUTSIDE OF THAT IS DONE INTERNALLY BY THE FLEET DEPARTMENT.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THANK YOU AGAIN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSIVENESS AND AND TO AND WHAT YOU DO FOR FOR OUR CITY.

YOU KEEP US CLEAN, RIGHT? AND TO ME, YOUR QUARTERBACK ON THIS ONE, HE'S HE'S THE REAL ALL-PRO.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANKS, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS OR SPORTS ANALOGIES? NO.

BASICALLY, OUR QUARTERBACK IS PROBABLY MORE RELIABLE AND TRUSTWORTHY THAN SOME I COULD NAME.

I DIDN'T WANT TO USE ANY NAMES.

YEAH.

YEAH, WE'LL LET THAT GO.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

AND THAT WILL BRING US TO GP&L MR. KLEIN.

DO YOU NEED A RESET THE FOOTBALL BEFORE I START ? [INAUDIBLE] YEAH.

HOLD ON.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

.

MAYOR, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

GOOD.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

I'M PLEASED TO PRESENT TO YOU TODAY OUR REQUEST FOR NEW PROJECTS FOR 2022.

AS WE'VE DONE IN PREVIOUS CIP PRESENTATIONS SINCE OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM HAS SUB PROGRAMS, WE HAVE THE LARGEST SUB PROGRAM, WITH THE LARGEST DOLLAR AMOUNT GOING FIRST AND THEN WE JUST KIND OF FOLLOW THROUGH WITH THAT.

THIS YEAR'S WINNER FOR THE LARGEST DOLLAR AMOUNT FOR NEW REQUEST IS OUR SUBSTATION PROGRAM.

WE ONLY HAVE ONE ITEM AS FAR AS THE NEW REQUEST FOR SUBSTATIONS.

THIS IS A CONSTRUCTION OF A SWITCH STATION.

THIS IS ACTUALLY IN THE KIND OF THE NORTHEAST OF FROM GARLAND.

IT'S WE'VE GOT TRANSMISSION LINES THAT ARE HEADED FROM GARLAND UP TO OUR OLINGER POWER PLANT AND RAYBURN ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, AS WELL AS FARMERS ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE

[03:10:01]

OR EXPERIENCING GROWTH IN THEIR SERVICE AREAS.

AND SINCE WE ARE THE CLOSEST TRANSMISSION SERVICE PROVIDER, THEY NEED AN INTERCONNECTION INTO THE ERCOT GRID.

AND SO WE'LL BE PROVIDING AN INTERCONNECTION.

WE'LL BUILD THE TRANSMISSION SIDE OF THE STATION AND THEN THEY'LL BUILD THEIR DISTRIBUTION COMPONENT.

AND SO SINCE THIS IS TRANSMISSION, AS I THINK COUNCIL IS AWARE, ALL THOSE COSTS ARE RECOVERED THROUGH OUR TRANSMISSION COSTS OF SERVICE RATE, WHICH IS PASSED THROUGH TO ALL OF ERCOT RATEPAYERS.

SO WE GET RECOVERY ON THESE COSTS, BUT ALSO WE GET TO EARN A RETURN ON THIS INVESTMENT AS WELL.

OUR NEXT PROGRAM IS OUR TRANSMISSION LINES.

THERE ARE THREE TRANSMISSION LINES THAT ERCOT HAS REQUESTED THAT WE UPGRADE THE CAPACITY ON.

THIS IS BECAUSE OF EITHER CURRENT GROWTH OR EXPECTED GROWTH IN AND AROUND THE GARLAND AREA.

AND SO THESE THREE LINES ARE THE CENTERVILLE ROAD TO MCCREE, CENTERVILLE ROAD TO OATES AND THEN MARKET DRIVE TO SHILOH ROAD.

AND SO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT REQUESTING IS $2.7 MILLION FOR 2022 FOR THESE THREE PROJECTS, BUT IN TOTAL, THESE THREE PROJECTS BECAUSE THEY WILL BLEED OVER INTO 2023.

WE'RE LOOKING AT A TOTAL OF $9 MILLION ASSOCIATED WITH THESE INVESTMENTS.

THE SECOND IS THE LINES ROAD WIDENING.

WE'VE GOT 960000 DOLLARS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT FOR 2022.

WHILE WE ARE RELOCATING THESE, IT'S ACTUALLY TWO TRANSMISSION LINES WHILE WE'RE RELOCATING THESE LINES.

WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND DO AN UPGRADE TO THESE STRUCTURES TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE ADDITIONAL CAPACITY BECAUSE WE'RE ENVISIONING THAT WITHIN THE NEXT FEW YEARS, ERCOT IS GOING TO REACH OUT TO US WITH THESE LINES AND REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL CAPACITY.

SO IF WE'RE GOING AHEAD AND TOUCHING THESE FACILITIES, LET'S GO AHEAD AND UPGRADE THEM WHILE WE'RE THERE.

SO EVEN THOUGH WE'RE SHOWING NINE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND FOR 2020, THIS WILL ACTUALLY BE A TWO YEAR PROGRAM.

AND SO WE'RE LOOKING AT ROUGHLY ABOUT $3.2 MILLION TOTAL ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PROJECT, WHICH WOULD CONSIST OF THE RELOCATION, PLUS THE UPGRADING OF THE STRUCTURES FOR THE ADDITIONAL CAPACITY.

OUR NEXT PROGRAM IS THE RELOCATIONS PROGRAM, AND THIS IS SPECIFIC TO DISTRIBUTION.

HISTORICALLY, WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF RELOCATIONS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH OUR TRANSMISSION LINES, BUT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WE DO HAVE RELOCATIONS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH OUR DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM FOR 2022.

WE HAVE TWO LARGER RELOCATIONS.

THE FIRST IS LINES.

THIS IS THE SAME ROAD WIDENING THAT WE TALKED ABOUT WITH TRANSMISSION FOR 2022.

WE'RE REQUESTING ONE POINT THREE TWO FIVE MILLION.

THIS WILL BLEED OVER A LITTLE BIT INTO 2023 AS WELL.

SO THE TOTAL RELOCATION COST FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT'S $1.8 MILLION, THEN BRAND ROAD IS THE SECOND RELOCATION, WHICH IS FOR $1.1 MILLION.

AND THIS WILL BE RELOCATING NOT JUST OVERHEAD, BUT ALSO UNDERGROUND DISTRIBUTION FACILITIES.

AND THIS WILL ALSO HAVE A COMPONENT THAT BLEEDS OVER INTO 2023.

SO THE TOTAL COST, WE'RE ASKING 1.1 MILLION FOR THIS YEAR, BUT THE TOTAL COST WILL BE $1.6 MILLION FOR FOR THE RELOCATION OF THOSE FACILITIES.

I THINK COUNCIL IS AWARE THAT OUR GENERATING UNITS ARE OLDER, AND AS THOSE UNITS AGE, JUST LIKE WITH ANY EQUIPMENT, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE SITUATIONS WHERE YOU FIND DIFFICULTIES IN GETTING REPLACEMENT PARTS, SUPPORT SERVICES AND THEN SOME THINGS JUST REACH THE END OF THEIR USEFUL LIFE AND YOU REALIZE THAT IT'S BETTER TO REPLACE OR REPAIR THAN THAN KEEP PUTTING MAINTENANCE DOLLARS INTO THEM.

AND SO FOR MOST OF THESE ITEMS THAT YOU'LL SEE FOR THE PRODUCTION SIDE, THAT'S THE SITUATION.

THE FIRST ITEM IS ASSOCIATED WITH OUR NATURAL GAS FLOWS.

THIS IS AN AUTOMATED PROCESS THAT WE HAVE.

IT'S THE REMOTE TERMINAL UNIT.

IT'S 20 PLUS YEARS OLD.

IT'S GETTING TO THE END OF ITS SERVICE LIFE.

AND IN ADDITION, WE'RE HAVING DIFFICULTY FINDING REPLACEMENT PARTS.

SO WHAT WE'RE REQUESTING TO REPLACE THIS IS FIVE HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS.

THE OTHER THING IS THIS IS AN AUTOMATED GAS FLOW PROCESS.

AND SO BECAUSE OF THE AUTOMATION, IT HELPS US WITH EMISSION CONTROLS.

SO IT'S IMPORTANT FROM A FROM A POLLUTION CONTROL STANDPOINT TO HAVE THIS RUNNING APPROPRIATELY.

THE NEXT ITEM IS REPLACING OR REFURBISHING THE SPENCER FIVE CIRCULATING WATER PUMP SPENCER FIVE.

THAT'S OUR OUR UNITS THAT ARE UP IN THE DENTON AREA.

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL CIRCULATING WATER PUMP, WHICH IS FROM 1973, SO WE HAVE GOTTEN OUR MONEY'S WORTH OUT OF THIS.

THIS PARTICULAR PUMP, IT GETS EVEN BETTER.

THE NEXT ITEM, THE TWO ITEMS ARE FOR OLINGER UNITS TWO AND THREE.

THIS IS TO REPLACE THE BOILER SAMPLE PANEL.

THIS CONTROLS HOW THE WATER QUALITY THAT'S GETTING INTO THE BOILER.

[03:15:01]

THESE ARE THE ORIGINAL ONES AS WELL.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT OLINGER UNIT TWO, IT IS 1971 AND OLINGER UNIT THREE IS 1973.

NOW, I'LL BE HONEST WITH YOU, I'M SURPRISED THE ONE FROM 1971 IS GIVING US ANY PROBLEMS BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW 1971 IS THE BEST YEAR EVER, SO WE'RE ASKING FOR FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS ASSOCIATED WITH REPLACING THOSE TO SAMPLE PANELS.

I HEARD NO DISAGREEMENT ABOUT 1971 BEING THE BEST YEAR EVER.

OK, SPEAKING OF SPEAKING OF REPLACEMENTS, WE HAVE THE THE OLINGER EVAPORATION POND NUMBER FOUR REPLACING THE WALL WE HAVE RIGHT NOW CROSS TIES THAT ARE USED AS THE WALL AND THEY'RE STARTING TO DETERIORATE.

SO WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO IS REPLACE THOSE WITH A GABION WALL.

AND IF YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE GABION WALL, IT'S JUST BASICALLY YOU HAVE A WIRE STRUCTURE AND YOU PUT ROCK IN IT.

AND SO HOPEFULLY IT WILL WILL WILL LAST LONGER.

AND SO WE'RE REQUESTING ONE HUNDRED SIXTY ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS TO REPLACE THIS WALL.

ALSO LOOKING AT REPLACING THE EMISSIONS MONITORING SYSTEM AT SPENCER FOUR AND FIVE AND AND THOSE ARE TO REPLACE THE ANALYZERS ASSOCIATED WITH NITROGEN OXIDE AND CARBON AND CARBON DIOXIDE, AND WE'RE REQUESTING $150000 TO REPLACE THOSE BECAUSE THEY'RE TOWARD THE END OF THEIR USEFUL LIFE.

THEY'RE ROUGHLY 20 YEARS OLD AND WE'RE HAVING HAVING DIFFICULTY FINDING REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR ASSOCIATED WITH THESE ANALYZERS.

THE LAST ITEM ON THIS SLIDE IS ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE SOFTWARE.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, MORE AND MORE REGULATIONS COME DOWN AS FAR AS COMPLIANCE.

AND SO THERE'S SPECIFIC SOFTWARE THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT TRYING TO OBTAIN.

IT'S GEARED TOWARDS ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE WITH THE TEXAS COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY, AS WELL AS THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY.

ALLOW US TO TRACK AND MANAGE THESE COMPLIANCE DOCUMENTS AS WELL AS ELECTRONICALLY FILE THEM.

IT ALSO BENEFITS US FROM THE STANDPOINT OF AS THESE THIS ADDITIONAL COMPLIANCE KEEPS COMING ON, YOU HAVE TO ADDRESS IT ONE OR TWO WAYS, EITHER THROUGH SOME TYPE OF TECHNOLOGY OR SYSTEM OR THROUGH ADDITIONAL LABOR.

SO WE'RE GOING THE ROUTE WITH WITH THE SOFTWARE TO TRY TO CREATE ADDITIONAL EFFICIENCIES AS WE HAVE ADDITIONAL COMPLIANCE THAT'S COMING ONLINE.

AND THEN THE LAST ITEM FOR PRODUCTION IS REPLACING THE UNIT THREE BORDER CONTROLS.

THEY'RE A LITTLE OVER 20 YEARS OLD AND THEY'RE STARTING TO GET TO THE END OF THEIR USEFUL LIFE.

AND WE'RE HAVING SOME DIFFICULTIES AS FAR AS REPLACEMENT PARTS AND SUPPORT SERVICES.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, WE REPLACED THE TURBINE CONTROLS ON ALL OF OUR UNITS AT OLINGER WITH WHAT'S CALLED OVATION CONTROLS.

WE'RE LOOKING AT DOING THE SAME THING HERE WITH THESE BORDER CONTROLS BECAUSE THEY WOULD TIE IN NICELY TOGETHER.

PLUS, IT HELPS US WITH REGARDS TO TRAINING ACTIVITIES.

OUR OPERATORS ARE ALREADY TRAINED ON OVATION CONTROLS, AND SO IT'LL MAKE IT EASIER PROCESS.

WE'RE SHOWING FORTY SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS.

THAT'S JUST TO BEGIN THE DESIGN PROCESS.

IN ACTUALITY.

THIS IS A $3.5 MILLION PROJECT BECAUSE THIS WOULD BLEED OVER INTO 2023.

OUR LAST AREA, THIS IS KIND OF A CATCHALL WE HAVE OUR VARIOUS IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM.

COUNCIL MAY RECALL THAT WHEN WE GAVE AN UPDATE ON THE FEBRUARY WINTER EVENT, THERE WAS MENTION THAT WE WERE LOOKING AT THE POSSIBILITY OF PURSUING WHAT'S CALLED AN AMI OR AN ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE.

SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW IT AS SMART METERS.

AND SO WE'RE LOOKING GOING THROUGH THIS PROCESS.

ONE OF THE THINGS I WILL CAUTION ABOUT THIS IS WE'RE GOING TO BE VERY DELIBERATE ABOUT THIS TYPE OF PROCESS AND REVIEW BECAUSE AN AMI SYSTEM IS MORE THAN JUST METERING OR BILLING.

THERE IS MUCH MORE TO IT, AND IT TOUCHES ON SO MANY PARTS OF OUR OPERATIONS THAT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WHEN WE'RE GOING DOWN THIS KIND OF PATH THAT WE RUN THROUGH ALL THOSE RABBIT TRAILS AND THAT WE TALK AND MEET WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS AND LEARN WHERE IT'S BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCES OF THE PROS AND CONS OF GOING THROUGH SOME TYPE OF INSTALLATION LIKE THIS.

SO WE HAVE DOLLARS TO START DOWN THE PROCESS.

BUT I THINK THE REALITY IS IF WE WERE DOING ANYTHING TOWARDS THAT, WE WOULDN'T BE BEGINNING TILL THE END OF 2022.

AND THIS COULD ACTUALLY NOT EVEN START TO 2023 BECAUSE WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DO SUFFICIENT DUE DILIGENCE BECAUSE AT LEAST OUR INITIAL ESTIMATES IS THE TOTAL COST OF SOME TYPE OF REPLACEMENT INFRASTRUCTURE LIKE THIS WOULD BE AROUND 13 TO $15 MILLION FOR US OVERALL.

IN ADDITION, BECAUSE IT'S MORE THAN JUST A BILLING TYPE OF SYSTEM, YOU'RE LOOKING AT ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL THAT WOULD BE NEEDED THAT HAVE PARTICULAR

[03:20:06]

TYPE OF SKILL SETS, WHICH IN THE MARKETPLACE WOULD BE, WOULD COMMAND A PRETTY GOOD SALARY.

SO WHEN GOING DOWN THIS PATH, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE VERY CERTAIN OF, YOU KNOW, BEFORE WE PULL THE TRIGGER.

SO WE DO HAVE SOME DOLLARS IN HERE FOR THIS, THIS PROJECT, BUT JUST TO KIND OF GIVE COUNCIL A HEADS UP AS FAR AS THE TIMING.

THE LAST ITEM IS COMPLIANCE DOCUMENTATION STORAGE SOFTWARE.

WE MENTIONED ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL SOFTWARE.

THIS IS ACTUALLY MORE BROAD FOR THE ENTIRE UTILITY ON A ROUTINE BASIS, ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.

WE ARE AUDITED BY NUMEROUS REGULATORY AGENCIES, BOTH AT STATE AND FEDERAL LEVELS.

AND SO WE HAVE DIFFERENT TYPE OF REQUIREMENTS THROUGHOUT THE ORGANIZATION.

AND SO THEY'RE SPREAD OUT RIGHT NOW.

AND WHAT WE'D LIKE TO DO IS CONSOLIDATE THAT UNDER ONE TYPE OF PLATFORM.

AND SO SO THAT WE HAVE A CENTRALIZED CLEARINGHOUSE FOR ALL OF OUR ACTIVITIES THAT WE CAN GO THROUGH.

AND SO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS THIS PROGRAM WOULD BE A SIX HUNDRED AND TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND WITH THAT SUMMARY FOR NEW PROJECTS FOR 2022 IS JUST UNDER $18 MILLION.

AND IF THERE'S ANY QUESTIONS, I'D BE HAPPY TO TRY TO ANSWER.

ALL RIGHT, VERY GOOD.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

A COUPLE OF QUICK QUESTIONS.

MADE QUITE THE LAUNDRY LIST COMING OUT OF THE WINTER STORM.

AND I GUESS MY QUESTION IS, DO YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED? WHILE WE'RE WHILE WE HAVE THE CHECKBOOK OPEN HERE.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT WE'RE MISSING FROM THE CIP SIDE FOR GP&L? EMBEDDED IN THE PRODUCTION SIDE, WE ALREADY HAD SOME DOLLARS ASSOCIATED WITH SOME ADDITIONAL WEATHERIZATION.

AND WHILE WE WERE GOING THROUGH THE WEATHERIZATION REQUIREMENTS THAT WERE LAID UPON US BY THE STATE BECAUSE WE HAD A FILE A DOCUMENT SAYING THAT WE WERE IN COMPLIANCE WITH WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR, WE HIRED A THIRD PARTY TO COME IN AND GIVE US THEIR OPINION BEFORE WE SUBMITTED THAT INFORMATION TO SEE IF THEY WERE IN AGREEMENT, IF WE WERE IN COMPLIANCE.

AND SO THEY IDENTIFIED SOME ADDITIONAL AREAS THAT ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS ARE.

AND SO WHAT WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING IS GOING AND LOOKING THROUGH THOSE ITEMS AND SEE, OK, BASICALLY WHAT'S THE BANG FOR THE BUCK? OR THERE'S SOME THINGS THAT ARE IN HERE THAT, YEAH, WE COULD DO THAT'S ABOVE WHAT WE'RE REQUIRED TO DO.

BUT THAT MAY HAVE SOME ADDITIONAL BENEFIT TO US, BUT WE HAVE SOME DOLLARS THAT ARE SET ASIDE IN OUR PRODUCTION CIP RIGHT NOW FOR THOSE ACTIVITIES.

OKAY.

AND THEN WE'RE DOING A LOT OF COMPONENT REPLACEMENT ON THE VARIOUS UNITS AT OLINGER.

HAVE WE HIT THAT TIPPING POINT WHERE WE JUST WANT TO WHOLESALE REPLACE ENTIRE UNITS? OR IS IT STILL COST EFFECTIVE TO KEEP DOING COMPONENT REPLACEMENT? AT THIS AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT IN TIME, I'D SAY IT STILL COST EFFECTIVE, BUT WE MAY GET TO A POINT WHERE YOU'RE STARTING TO LOOK IN AT A TURBINE OR A BOILER THAT'S GOING TO BE BIG, BIG DOLLARS, BIG DOLLARS.

AND SO WE'RE NOT TO THAT POINT YET, BUT I THINK WE'RE GETTING WE'RE GETTING CLOSE TO PROBABLY IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS OF GETTING CLOSE TO MAKING THAT DETERMINATION OF DO YOU DO YOU PUT MORE MONEY IN THE OLDER FACILITY? DO YOU BUILD A NEW FACILITY? DO YOU LOOK AT SOME TYPE OF CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP FOR SUPPLY? THOSE TYPE OF DISCUSSIONS HERE WITHIN THE NEXT FEW YEARS WILL HAVE TO BE MADE IN THOSE DECISIONS AS WELL.

BUT I WOULD SAY RIGHT NOW STILL REPLACING LIKE WHAT WE'RE DOING I THINK IS SUFFICIENT AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT IN TIME.

VERY GOOD.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

VERY GOOD.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? I GUESS, DARYL, SHOULD WE CONTACT THE LANDMARK MUSEUM AND GET SOME SPACE FOR SOME OF THESE OLINGER SWITCHES TO BE, YOU KNOW, MEMORIALIZED IN THERE? WE'LL TRY AND GET A FEW MORE YEARS OUT OF THEM.

OK.

MAYBE WHEN THEY'RE 75 YEARS OLD, MAYBE SO.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, VERY GOOD.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU.

AND THAT BRINGS US TO LAST, BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST WATER WASTEWATER.

WES.

HELLO, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

GOOD AFTERNOON, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, THANKS FOR HAVING ME HERE TODAY.

I'M HERE TO PRESENT THE 2022 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER, AND WE'LL START OUT ON THE WATER SIDE.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF PROJECTS HERE, AS QUITE A FEW SPEAKERS TODAY HAVE MENTIONED THE FACT THAT THERE'S SOME SCOPE CORRECTION AND THIS IS OUR WATER PUMP STATION REHAB.

THIS IS ACTUALLY FOR OUR FIREWHEEL PUMP STATION AND IT'S 50 PLUS YEARS OLD.

SO WE STARTED TO LOOK AT THAT AS FAR AS DESIGN AND REHAB.

IT BASICALLY NEEDS A TOTAL MAKEOVER.

[03:25:03]

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO REPLACE PUMPS, MOTORS, PIPING AND THE ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS ON IT AS WELL.

SO THIS PUMP STATION.

WE LOOKED AT THE DESIGN AND THEN THE REHAB WORK FOR IT, AND WE'RE EXPECTING ABOUT A 19 PERCENT INCREASE AS FAR AS THE COST GOES FOR THIS PROJECT.

AND ALSO IN THIS PUMP STATION REHAB, WE DID PROGRAM IN SOME FUNDING IN 2027.

ONCE THIS PROJECT IS COMPLETE, WE NEED TO START ON OUR BROADWAY PUMP STATION.

SO WE PUT THAT IN THERE FURTHER OUT JUST TO AS A FYI FOR COUNCIL.

THE SECOND PROJECT IS OUR FIELD OPERATION CENTER AND THIS IS A JOINT PROJECT WE STARTED.

IT'S IN THE DESIGN PHASE FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER.

IT'S FUNDED BY WATER AND WASTEWATER COLLECTIONS AND SO EXPECTED INCREASES, AS WE'VE SEEN ACROSS THE BOARD TODAY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TWENTY TWO PERCENT INCREASE FOR THIS PROJECT.

AND AGAIN, THAT'S SPLIT EVENLY BETWEEN OUR WATER AND WASTEWATER COLLECTIONS.

RELOCATIONS OF MAINS PRIOR TO PAVING ON THE WATER SIDE.

THIS IS THE PROJECT THAT WE DO IN COORDINATION WITH ENGINEERING AND STREETS.

AS I'VE MENTIONED BEFORE, WE HAVE A THREE YEAR ROLLING PROGRAM WITH STREETS THAT BEFORE THEY PUT IN A BRAND NEW STREET.

WE WANT TO GO IN THERE AND PUT IN NEW SEWER, NEW WATER LINES.

SO SIX MONTHS AFTER BRAND NEW STREET, WE DON'T HAVE TO GO IN THERE AND BUST UP THE STREETS.

SO THESE ARE THE LIST OF PROJECTS WE'RE DOING IN 2022 ON THE WATER SIDE AND THEN HERE ON WASTEWATER COLLECTION.

THESE ARE THE LIST OF STREETS WE'LL BE DOING REPAIRING, REPLACING THE THE SEWER LINES.

WE DO HAVE ONE NEW PROJECT THAT WE'RE GOING TO.

WE'D LIKE TO START, PROBABLY THIS SUMMER.

AS FAR AS DESIGN GOES, OUR DUCK CREEK TREATMENT PLANT AGAIN, IT'S GOT SOME VERY OLD OLD PROCESSES IN PLACE.

THIS IS A DUAL PROJECT WITH WE WANT TO REPLACE THE CHLORINATION TO UV DISINFECTION AND THEY ALSO WANT TO REPLACE.

THEY'VE GOT SAND FILTERS OUT THERE AND WE WANT TO REPLACE THOSE WITH CLOTH CLOTH FILTRATION SYSTEM.

NOW WE'VE DONE THE SAME PROJECT TYPE OF PROJECT WITHOUT THE UV DISINFECTION OUT AT ROWLETT CREEK.

WE SWITCHED THE CLOTH FILTERS AND THOSE WORK ARE WORKING VERY WELL OUT THERE, SO WE PROBABLY START DESIGNING 22 LIKE AROUND THIS SUMMER AND HOPEFULLY CONSTRUCTION WILL START IN 2023.

THIS IS JUST A SUMMARY OF THE NEW CIP PROJECTS RIGHT THERE.

IT'S JUST THE DUCK CREEK PROJECT CLOTH FILTER UV DISINFECTION AT ONE POINT TWO MILLION.

AND THEN FINALLY, WE WANTED TO PUT THIS SLIDE IN ABOUT POTENTIAL OR PROJECTED RATE INCREASES FOR FISCAL YEAR TWENTY THREE.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE WATER DISTRICT.

WE'RE ANTICIPATING A SEVEN POINT FOUR PERCENT INCREASE.

WE RAN THE NUMBERS THROUGH OUR SYSTEM.

YOU KNOW, OUR MODELS, AND IT'S PROBABLY ABOUT A THREE POINT EIGHT PERCENT INCREASE ON THE WATER SIDE FOR US.

AND THEN ON THE WASTEWATER SIDE, PROBABLY A TWO PERCENT INCREASE IS WHAT.

AND AGAIN, THESE ARE JUST PRIMARY NUMBERS PRELIMINARY.

YOU KNOW, WE'LL HAVE A BETTER IDEA AS WE GET CLOSER TO BUDGETS.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE ON MAY OR JUNE TIMEFRAME.

SO THIS IS PRELIMINARY.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

ALL RIGHT.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS SECTION? I DON'T HAVE ANYBODY IN THE QUEUE.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE IT.

ALL RIGHT.

AS I SAID THAT THAT CONCLUDES ALL OF THE DEPARTMENT PRESENTATIONS AND WE DO HAVE TIME.

WE DO HAVE TIME HERE AT THE END FOR COUNCIL DISCUSSION AND QUESTIONS.

[3. Council Discussion and Questions Regarding 2022 Proposed CIP]

I HAVE NOT NOTED ANY QUESTIONS THAT WERE NOT ABLE TO BE ANSWERED TODAY, BUT OBVIOUSLY WE WILL HAVE IN AN UPCOMING WORK SESSION.

WE WILL HAVE ADDITIONAL TIME TO DISCUSS THIS.

AND I KNOW AS AS WE HAVE TIME TO TO SORT OF ABSORB AND FILTER THROUGH THE INFORMATION.

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, IF YOU CAN SEND THOSE TO ALLISON AND THEN SHE WILL DIRECT THE ANSWERS BACK OUT TO EVERYONE ELSE.

SO ALLISON, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD BEFORE I HAVE THEM TURN OFF THE CAMERAS AND THE LIGHTS? REAL QUICKLY.

WE HAVE RECEIVED QUESTIONS FROM MAYOR PRO TEM AND DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM.

WE'RE WORKING ON THOSE AND HOPE TO GET THOSE TURNED AROUND TO ALL OF COUNCIL NEXT WEEK, AS WELL AS ANY OTHER QUESTIONS YOU MAY SUBMIT TO US.

AND THEN I JUST REAL QUICKLY FOR EVERYBODY'S REMINDER, I DO HAVE A REVIEW CALENDAR SHARED UP ON THE SCREEN.

DAN, IF YOU COULD BRING THAT, THANK YOU.

AND WE WILL BE BACK AT THE REGULAR WORK SESSION AND ON JANUARY 31ST THAT MONDAY FOR

[03:30:02]

FURTHER COUNCIL DISCUSSION, WE'LL HOLD OUR PUBLIC HEARING ON THE TWENTY TWO PROPOSED CIP ON FEBRUARY 1ST AT SEVEN P.M.

AT THE REGULAR MEETING, WE DID HAVE A TENTATIVE DATE FOR FEBRUARY EIGHT, IF REQUESTED BY THE COUNCIL.

AT THIS TIME, I HAVE NOT HEARD ANY REQUESTS FOR THAT ADDITIONAL WORK SESSION, SO WE'LL JUST PLAN TO BE COMING BACK TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED MEETINGS UNLESS WE HEAR A REQUEST FOR THAT ADDITIONAL DATE.

I THINK THAT'S PRETTY SAFE AT THIS POINT.

YES.

THANK YOU ALL.

AND THEN ON FEBRUARY 14TH, WILL BE SEEKING SOME DELIBERATION AND FINAL DIRECTION FROM YOU ALL, WITH OUR ADOPTION SCHEDULED FOR FEBRUARY 15TH AND OUR SECOND AND FINAL PUBLIC HEARING.

OK, VERY GOOD.

ALL RIGHT.

SO BEFORE WE ADJOURN, DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY POINTS THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS TODAY? OTHERWISE, WE WILL RECONVENE ON THIS RECONVENE ON THIS TOPIC ON, I BELIEVE, THE 31ST.

WITH THAT AT 12:55, WE ARE ADJOURNED.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, SHOW'S OVER, BOYS.

DON'T GO TARPLESS.
