City Manager’s report – June 13, 2022
William J Robertson Nature Preserve Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Thank you to everyone who made our Ribbon Cutting ceremony such a great success. We couldn’t ask for a more perfect day to welcome our citizens to this absolutely beautiful nature preserve. Thank you to Verdantes (formerly Hull and Associates) and Haynes Construction. It was a pleasure working with these professionals who truly were dedicated to this Rittman project.
This grand opening could not have been accomplished without our directors and staff, Garrick, Christian and Chuck. They knocked it out of the park and we are forever grateful to their efforts in working on all the minute details that were so important to this opening. To our mayor and his volunteer group, without you, this would not have been a reality and to Council and all of our departments, thank you for your support,
Salt Street Repairs
As the city has acquired a new drag paver, Don Rediger, our Service Department Supervisor his staff will work on road repairs on Salt Street on Friday, June 24th. The repairs will begin near Aqua Clear and head down to Morning Star. We hope this work greatly improve this part of Salt Street. Buck and I met with Michael Boyle of Morton Salt and Buck also met with Dave Kovacs of Aqua Clear in light of this repair work and how it will impact traffic throughout the day.
The resurfacing of Eastern, S. Main and E. Ohio will begin on August 1st. All roads will remain open and traffic will be controlled with as little disruption as possible. Please share this information with your constituents as before you know it, August will be here. A letter will be handed out or mailed to all property owners affected and posted on our website and Facebook. This work will take 4-6 weeks.
Meeting regarding proposed Splash Pad
Garrick and I have begun the process of discussing a splash pad for our residents to enjoy. There will be much more information in the near future and I will ask for Council’s involvement over the next several months.
