CITY ADMINISTRATOR REPORT

Lent noted that they are looking to extend the water main for the development of Pioneer Hybrid from the intersection of 64th to east of their property line. The cost for engineering is $15,000 and the cost to install is $150,000. Lent explained they are waiting for an estimate from Max Smith and may possibly have to go into bid. PFM is looking at the numbers to see if we can use reserves or will have to borrow.

The fencing and seeding is done on the 5th Street Culvert project with some minor cleanup on the utilities such as burying some wires and other items.

Lent proposed that part of the property where the building was demolished be given to the Chamber for the downtown park. It would be the lower part of the “L” shape. Matt Thomas estimated it would cost $800.00 to do the plat of survey.

The Nature Trail is in the Iowa League of Cities’ All-Star Peoples Choice award competition and Carlisle is in the finals against Nevada.

Mayor and Lent will be attending the Iowa League of Cities conference in Davenport Wed-Friday of this week.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL REPORTS

Merrifield inquired about the trip that the Mayor was on and Lent noted he thought it was for the Des Moines Partnership.

Goodhue noted that the Community Night Out event on Saturday was fantastic and commended both chiefs and their departments. He also expressed thanks to Merrifield for bringing up two items of concern at the last meeting which he had to miss.

McCulloch asked where we were at with the police department and our temporary Chief. Lent explained he would like to get with the Mayor and should have a recommendation for the Council at the next meeting. McCulloch would like to investigate on his own the possibility of getting silent crossings and special train horns in Carlisle and would like Council’s blessing for him moving forward with this as well as investigate if there are grants available.
