Council’s Capital Projects Work-In-Progress Sub-Committee meets September 30th to discuss the status of hundreds of Public Works capital projects.
The City does not make agendas for non-standing committees publicly available on the Internet. Apparently, they haven’t discovered the upload button in their Drupal CMS backend.
The members of this committee are: Collins, Conley, B. Johnson, Partridge, Pearson, and the Whitehead.
The meeting begins at 1:30pm in Room 192 at City Hall.

Gage Park Tropical House renewal project – budgeted at $3-million – is expected to go to tender by end of the year.
Central Park Remediation – this project is supposed to be underway in the next few weeks. Budgeted at $3.16-million, the project will include addressing contamination found in the north portion of the park.
City Hall Renovations – the ongoing renovations of City Hall, caused by cutting corners on the 2010 renovation project to declare that renovation “on-time, on-budget” continue.
