City pondering how to deal with flare-ups

“We’ve gone beyond our due diligence to notify her,” he said. “We notified her more than a month ago that she needed to get her things out. I wasn’t comfortable with that, even telling her to go back in the house and get anything. That’s how bad of a situation it was.”

The condemnation was unanimously approved by the board.



As the city moves forward with its plans to construct a new police station on 10th Street, Merkley has recommended the city hire a project manager. At Wednesday’s board of public works meeting, the personal service agreement was approved.

The city agreed to hire Clinton Deckard of Construction Solutions LLC to manage the project for an amount up to $120,000.

“This would be paid out of the bond proceeds,” Merkley said. “In the long-run, I think it will make more sense to have a project manager and also in the end, the project manager can usually save us some money.”

The bond resolution adopted by the city council earlier this week will still have to go before the city’s Redevelopment Commission and a public hearing will have to be hosted before final approval is granted.
