The garage floor at the Clintonville Police Department will be repaired, as the City Council voted 8-0 in favor of re-allocating $7,413.12 for the project at their special meeting on Monday, Oct. 21.
Alderpersons Gloria Dunlavy and Jerry Jorgenson were not able to attend the meeting, which began at 5 p.m.
According to City Administrator Lisa Kuss, the two western garage bays were not originally intended to be used for parking vehicles when the building was owned by WE Energies. The bays were used for dry storage at that time.
“We tried to manage through the less-than-ideal elevations and drainage in the bays last winter,” said Kuss in her memo to the council. “The drainage goes out toward our storage areas and is ruining things in the bays. We have had consultants in the building and all agree we need to make some changes.”
Kuss recommended that the police department’s capital items that have not yet been purchased in 2013 be put aside so that funds can be used to repair the garage floor. This recommendation, along with a bid in the amount of $7,413.12 from Wisnefske Excavating, was approved by an 8-0 vote.
