City Engineer Ron May presented the 200 block W Washington Street stormwater study. While working on Franklin and Washington Street downtown project they became more aware of a drainage issue on intersection of Jackson Street and Washington Street. This would be a good time to further consider the drainage situation as it is an issue that needs to be addressed. The problem continues further to the south of the alley opposite of Jackson street and the large impervious area contributes to the issues. They asked the project consultant for additional survey to help develop a conceptual plan which would cost $2,800 for the additional plan and $16,500 for engineering work. They are requesting a total of $19,300 for additional services. This was approved.
