Business move on agenda

December 18, 2018

The Watertown Common Council will review one ordinance on its second reading regarding the adoption of the general development plan and precise implementation plan which would allow Rock River Gymnastics to move to 426 S. Montgomery St., during its meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the council chambers of the municipal building.

Rock River Gymnastics is moving to this facility, shared with Building Products Inc., after issues with flooding at its original location on Wakoka Street.

A number of resolutions will be considered by the common council.

The common council will vote on a resolution to authorize the purchase of three JVC GY-HM660 ProHD mobile/studio news streaming video cameras for the city’s cable TV department from VSA Chicago. The quote given by the company was $18,790 and there was $21,135 budgeted for this purchase.

One resolution is to approve the $12,945 upfront purchase of a Fiix software, implementation and training. This purchase includes an annual subscription cost of $5,445.

Another resolution is to purchase new Trimble R2 RTK Rover GPS equipment from Seiler Geospatial for $13,050. The common council will also consider the purchase of leak detection equipment for the water department from Gutermann Inc. for $15,420.

An agreement with Max-R Recovery is on the agenda for 2019 tub grinding at a cost not to exceed $25,000.

One resolution would amend the annual street accounts assignments. The bituminous surfacing of city streets agreement and the West Street agreement with Payne and Dolan would be funded from a annual street reserve account and a storm water utility capital account. The curb and gutter and sidewalk construction program contract with Rennhack Construction would be funded from a annual street reserve account, a sidewalk capital account and the Carriage Hill Path grant funds account.

Two change orders are on the agenda. One is for the final 2018 curb and gutter and sidewalk replacement project which would subtract $134,808.94 from the contract amount, bringing the final price to $278,828.91. The cost was originally $413,637.85 but not all the work was completed this year and all the incomplete 2018 contract work will be rebid this upcoming year.

The other change order is for the final 2018 bituminous surfacing project. The contract price was $464,651.25 but not all work was completed this year and all the incomplete 2018 work will be rebid in 2019. This change order decreases the contract by $103,807.50 for a final revised total of $360,843.75.

The common council will also review a resolution to adopt a right of way dedication for 713 S. Second St. Another resolution is the acquisition of a property located at 301 N. Second St. in Watertown from Judith Draeger and authorizing public dedication and use.

The common council will look at a Class B malt and Class C wine licenses for Pizza Hut at 1504 S. Church St.

Members of the council will also recognize Robert Schwerer for 10 years of service as an employee.
