The Washington City Council is slated to review several ordinances at its March 5 regular meeting.
The council will be asked to approve an ordinance for the purchase a New Veeder Root ECPU2 for the public works fueling system and to amend the budget to do so.
The city uses the system to report fuel usage to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The equipment currently being used was installed in 1993 and updated once.
Water/Wastewater Superintendent Kevin Quaethem recently told the council the system is failing and needs to be replaced. Quaethem provided the city with two bids from area vendors. Superior Equipment Company (SECO), Maplewood, bid $6,486.48 for the work.
The council also will review the request to purchase a new single cab truck to be used by the city.
A contract with Unerstall Construction for the relocation of utilities underground in conjunction with the Front Street Redevelopment Project also is on the agenda.
A settlement agreement between the city and Lisa Brown is up for discussion.
Brown, who owns a home on Catawba Place, is suing the city of Washington for damages caused by a failing retention wall on West Main Street. The wall is located near the rear of her property.
City officials contend that the wall is not the city’s responsibility to maintain and attempted to pass an ordinance to vacate a portion of the roadway. The wall is located on the north side of West Main Street, west of Tiemann Drive.
Another proposed ordinance would grant a temporary construction easement deed.
The final proposed ordinance for the council’s discussion is a boundary adjustment for Heidmann Industrial Park, Plat 12.
