The Centerville City Council at Monday’s meeting at City Hall approved an engineering agreement with French-Renecker-Associates, Inc., out of Fairfield, in the amount of $27,138 for their efforts to get a fencing project completed at the municipal airport.
French-Renecker-Associates, for their part, will provided services to include survey and data collection, design, assist in bidding, engineering services, construction observation, project closeout and a short list of other services that could add to the firm’s final bill.
French-Renecker-Associates President John W. Meyer said the total cost of the project is in the $200,000-$220,000 range. Funding for the fencing project will come from an Airport Improvement Program grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to cover 90 percent and local funding of 10 percent. Bids are expected to be opened May of 2014.
The fencing project consists of the construction of new four-feet tall farm-type fence topped with one strand of barbed wire along newly acquired land and along existing property lines. Four-feet tall galvanized chain link fence will be placed in the terminal area to enhance security and control access and old fence no longer needed due to recent land acquisition will be removed.
The council in other action:
Approved a beer and wine license for The Garage Neighborhood Filling Station, LLC at 207 N. 13th St. on the Centerville Square. Many may remember this location as a breakfast and lunch destination known as the Market Place Deli operated by the daughter of Tom and Jene Marts. A document in the council agenda packet lists Jene as the owner and administrator of the new business.
Approved the first reading of an ordinance that amends several chapters and deletes one chapter dealing with the city’s liquor laws. The council will have the second reading of the ordinance at its next meeting.
