2016 Trail in the High Dunes The consultant completed a feasibility study under a grant from the USDA Rural Development program to plan the best way to place a trail through the high part of the dunes that is meets the needs of locals and visitors to enjoy the dunes and views, as well as meeting our needs for a fire break. The trail will be some 9 to 10 feet wide and on the crest of the highest dune. We anticipate having multiple rest stations along the way, eventually, with benches and points of interest. Seeking grant funding for final design and construction in 2019.

2017 Asphalt Repairs The pilot work with Uretek on Canal Drive was the starting point.  We will be addressing a couple intersections at Taurus here in the near future.  We will also be doing some shoulder work as part of this project as well.  We are uncertain that we will be able to stabilize and repair the ride quality on all locations with the current budget so we are considering our options at this point in time. 

WWTP Aeration Improvements

Police Station Parking Lot  Construction underway 09/18/17.   Completed October 2017.

Ongoing Hydrant Flushing We recommend that on flushing days in your neighborhood, you do not use hot water from 7 am through 4 pm. If you experience some discoloration of your water, please run the COLD water tap for a few minutes until it clears. For questions, comments, and to file complaints please contact the Water Department at 289-4210.

Ongoing Commercial and Residential Water Meter Replacements We are replacing aging meters. As they age, they generally slow down and do not record water use accurately. Commercial meters are almost complete.

Ongoing Fire Hydrant Replacements We are replacing fire hydrants as we test them and they fail. 2017 is the first year of a 40 year replacement program.

Ongoing Roadside Spraying, Pavement Striping, and Shoulder Rock Placement  Roadside spraying and pavement striping are done for 2017. Shoulder Rock can be placed anytime of the year, so is generally done in the slower season.

Smaller Projects:

North Bay Park  (- Budget Figure:  The amount shown in repair and maintenance of $29,700 is intended for the project work at the park.  The original amount budgeted was $16,500 for 7 elements of work associated with the cook shed building.  Council Member Plackett requested the additional $13,200 to bring the total up to the figure shown.  No separate line item differentiates this work.)

- Cook stove:  This work has been planned for a block of time where no reservations were in place for the cooking shelter.  Removal of the cook stove will begin in August 2017.

- Cook shed roof: This is failing and will be repaired/replaced as needed.

- Well Point:  This was in the 2016 budget. We found that we need to do considerable effort into the irrigation piping and control valves before actually hooking up the system. Installing the well point is pointless until this is complete.

- Radar Signs: Signs adjacent to the Elementary School.  Installation completed October 2017.
