Council approves $92,291 for ADA-required improvements

Modified: Wednesday, Jul 10th, 2013

City Manager Rick Olson

Between a strong opening and secret closing, city council dispatched with a light agenda at its July 10 meeting, hearing a report that the community faces substance abuse issues and awarding a bid to bring several areas of the city into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The meeting opened with representatives from the Arizona Department of Transportation reporting it will take close to three years to complete repairs of U.S. 89. They did not divulge the cost, but ADOT announced earlier it would be about $40 million. (See the article on ADOT’s plan elsewhere in Top Stories.)

Bunny Cochran, prevention specialist with Encompass Health Services, presented a Community Needs Assessment of substance abuse and perceptions in the city and the schools.

Council approved $92,291 for Lake Powell Construction to perform ADA-required improvements at Golliard Park, the city sports complex, the tennis courts on South Navajo Drive and areas near the community center and youth center. Lake Powell Construction submitted the only bid. The city received a federal grant to fund the work.

The meeting—at least the public segment of it—ended when council went into executive session to discuss City Manager Rick Olson’s employment agreement. Executive sessions are closed to the public.
