Council approves contract for Comprehensive Storm Water Master Plan
 
At the City Council meeting on Sept. 27, Council approved the City Manager to execute a contract with Halff Associates for the Comprehensive Storm Water Master Plan (CSWMP) to help identify flooding issues within city limits.
 
In 2016, City Council approved the 2016 Drainage Capital Improvement Project Strategy in order to address some of the City’s prominent drainage issues and limit future losses. Part of that strategy was to develop a CSWMP. Its purpose will be to update the City’s storm water infrastructure inventory, analyze condition and capacity, and develop a capital improvement programming tool by which storm water infrastructure can be managed.
 
Staff engaged Halff Associates and The C.T. Brannon Corporation at the same time to discuss the possibility of a joint effort.  A joint effort affords the City the great benefit of having a firm that specializes in storm water master planning (Halff Associates) and a firm that has extensive knowledge of the City’s storm water infrastructure (Brannon).  Both components are vital to developing a program that will meet the City’s needs into the future. 
 
“This is a much needed project that will improve storm water management for the City in an effort to better protect public health and safety,” said City Engineer Carter Delleney. “We are glad to see this moving forward.”
 
This project will be funded through the Half Cent Sales Tax Fund and the contract amount will not exceed $500,000.
