What happened: The council approved an ordinance regarding the municipality’s parking schedule.
What it means: This ordinance amendment tidies up parking rules on Conner Creek Drive, a road that connects to Allisonville Road and 116th Street. It clarifies that there is no parking on one side of the street and is “clearly enforceable,” according to Jeff Hill, Director of Engineering.
What’s next: The ordinance amendment had first, second and third readings at the meeting and was approved, so it will not be coming back for further consideration.
What happened: The council approved a request that awarded a construction contract for road resurfacing.
What it means: Five bids came in for a Road Resurface Contract for several thoroughfares in Fishers. Some of those roads include Mollenkopf Road between 96th Street and 106th Street, a piece of 96th Street and the section of 113th Street between Olio Road and Florida Road, according to a council action form. Cash for the project comes from the Cumulative Capital Development fund. The project will cost $463,500, which is under budget.
What’s next: Work is slated for completion before or in mid November.
What happened: The council approved a construction contract for the 2013 Intersection Reconstruction Program.
What it means: Two new roundabouts on 106th Street were up for approval through the contract. According to a council action form, one is planned at 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard, while a second is at 106th Street and Geist Road. The projected expenditure for the projects is $2,528,954.72. Two different bonds will pay for each roundabout individually.
What’s next: Even with the contract awarded to Rieth-Riley, construction is not planned to start until spring 2014.
What happened: The 2014 budget was discussed in the work session.
What it means: Town Manager Scott Fadness briefed the council members on next year’s proposed budget. Fadness told the council that the overall budget is slated to see a 12 percent increase. The 911 budget was also a talking point, as well as new or additional staff members that may be added.
What’s next: Briefings on the budget will continue before it officially goes before the council.
