PROPOSED METH LAB CLEAN UP ORDINANCE – Atty. Phares / Kimberly Bradley Typically after a lab is discovered law enforcement agencies remove only the chemicals and equipment used to manufacture the drugs. However, contamination may be left on surfaces and in absorbent materials leaving future inhabitants to be exposed to low levels that remain indefinitely if not properly cleaned. Chronic exposure to Meth lab chemicals can cause both short-term and long-term health effects. These adverse health effects can range from rashes and headaches to liver and kidney damage, neurological problems and an increased risk of cancer. The purpose of this ordinance is to reduce public exposure to health risks associated with the chemicals from clandestine drug labs (Meth houses) when exposed through inhabiting or visiting the site now or in the future. A motion was made by Alderman Moreno, seconded by Alderman Meredith, to pass this Ordinance on to full council for approval. Upon voice vote all those in attendance voted in favor.
10th STR WATER & ROAD REPAIR McClure Engineering has provided the attached cost estimates to replace the water main, drainage system and road on 10th Street hills from 18th to 21st Avenue. This water line is the main artery to supply water from the Water Plant to 10th Street High Tank, then to the residents on top of the hill. In the past we have had major water main breaks and drainage problems that cause erosion of the road subgrade. This project is listed as #2 on our Water Capital Improvement Plan, just behind the 7th Street Project that was completed last year. Attached is the estimated cost of project. Further information will be provided at the COW.
RECOMMENDATION: Hire McClure Engineering for a maximum of $33,000 to design and bid the project.
BUDGET IMPACT: Not to exceed $33,000 for design and biding of project. Money to come from Motor Fuel Tax Fund and Water Capital Improvement Bond Money.

Upon voice vote all those in attendance voted in favor.
