Harmony street project nears completion


Fri, Aug 15th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Government

City Engineer Brett Grabau attended the Harmony City Council meeting on August 12 to update the council on the First Avenue street project.

Grabau said there have been a lot of questions about the curbs. For the most part, the curbs are the same elevation as they were before, with just a couple of issues fixed. The driveway aprons look different, as the previous ones had curbs that wrapped around. Right now, there are curbs that seem to be higher than the previous ones, causing a lot of questions.

“There’s a lot of different things going on,” said Grabau. “It looks a little strange right now.”

The concrete will be completely finished this week from Fifth Avenue north, including the sidewalks. The entire project is scheduled to be complete by August 26, which is one week before school starts, and Grabau stated it should be finished before then.

Siren and Generator

City Administrator Jerome Illg spoke with Stuart Morem of Morem Electric about purchasing a generator for well #1. The cost was higher than they expected, so they looked into getting one for the fire hall. A generator there would cost $34,000.

Illg said the city could qualify for an up to $35,000 grant from the USDA. The grant would be 25/75, so the total project would have to be $47,000 to get the maximum grant. The city was already planning on purchasing a new siren for $20,000. This, along with a generator at the fire hall, would be $54,000. After the $35,000 grant, the remaining cost would be around $20,000, which the city was already planning on spending for the new siren.

The council approved the projects contingent on receiving the grant.

Fire Department

Donney said the fire department is looking at replacing their SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) tanks in the next few years. They need to be replaced every 15 years, which is three years away. He said they are planning to set aside money in the budget in the next three years to pay for them, as they are around $800 each. They will be looking at grants in a couple of years to help pay for new SCBA packs as well, as the current packs will not fit the new tanks.

Donney added the fire department will be looking for a new pump on the tanker, as the current one is leaking fuel into the trunk, and the pump is not functioning. The new pump will cost approximately $5,000.
