The Engineering Department reports the following activities for last month:




 One (1) Right-of-Way Permit was issued to Dominion East Ohio for a gas main repair.
 One (1) sewer permit was issued for residential work on East Pleasant Valley Road. 
 The site development permit was issued for the ROE Dental project at 7165 East Pleasant Valley Road.


                   
 Work is about 80% complete and progressing on schedule for the St. Maron’s Detention Basin Project.




 Work is progressing on schedule for the Oak Tree Boulevard North – Emergency Conduit Replacement & Improvements project.
o About 15% of the work was performed before the Holiday Season.  
o The recent weather change has resulted in a temporary suspension of work.


  
 We have a number of legislation items on the agenda tonight that either close out a 2015 maintenance contract (Resolution 2016-18 for Chagrin Valley Paving), or that invoke extension clauses to 2015 contracts for work to be performed in 2016 and/or 2017 (Specifically Resolutions 2016-19, 2016-20, and 2016-21).   Additionally,
o Ordinance 2016-08 would continue our partnership with the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District (CSWCD) in assisting us to meet our annual EPA Storm Water Discharge Permit requirements.  




 Ordinances 2016-06 and 2016-07 would appropriate needed property on the south side of Rockside Road between Summit Park Drive and I-77, to allow for pavement widening construction later this year.




 Lastly, I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome and congratulate Mayor Togliatti, Vice Mayor Grendel, Finance Director Veres, and all members of City Council on their successful elections and on the commencement of their new terms.  The Engineering Department looks forward to working in the new Administration and with City Council to advance the City in 2016.
