It is my understanding from board discussion that the England Point Road repairs (.41 mile) should be completed at this time, and we have adequate funds from the road millage.  So with that said please proceed with the repairs as you had discussed with trustee Ribble.  Project Cost is $50,000.

Sheriff Dar Leaf was invited to come to the Board Meeting.  The Commissioners spoke to Sheriff Leaf about the public pushing snow from their driveway across the county road and leaving hazardous piles.  There is a law that states that this is not allowed and the Commissioners wanted to know if anything could be done.  Sheriff Leaf stated that they speak to the residents and make it known to them that this is against the law.  As far as Sheriff Leaf could remember they have not issued a ticket for this.  The Sheriff stated if we are having a problem to give them a call and they will get it addressed.

Jake Welch, Director of Operations, gave the Board an update on the Charlton Park Road Bridge and the North Avenue Bridge.  The contractor has started on the Charlton Park Road Bridge and will be doing the pile installation this week.  The contractor will then move the crane to North Avenue.   Jake presented a proposal from SME for material testing and services.  SME is willing to train our personnel to observe the pile installation so the overall proposal of $43,750 could be less.

 

Motion was made and seconded to sign the Proposal with SME for Material Testing and Services.

The Board discussed trash cans being hit by our trucks/wings.  The trash cans were being placed on or very near the white edgeline of the road.  The employees when plowing snow and come across traffic cannot raise their wing immediately and a trash can was hit.  BCRC has a policy for damaged mailboxes but not for trash cans.  The Board agreed not to change our policy.

Tim Lane came to the Board to talk about abandoning a portion of Portage Avenue at the end of East Shore Drive.  Mr. Lane built a deck and later discovered that 2’ of the deck is on a road right of way.  Planning and Zoning sent him a letter stating he needs to remove the deck, remove 2’ of the deck and apply for a variance, or have the road abandoned.  The Engineering Department will work with Mr. Lane on the best option for him to pursue.
