Mace Road Phase 2 approved

OSAGE BEACH – Improvements to Mace Road are continuing with the final approval of a contract with Bartlett and West, Inc. for the Mace Road Phase 2 Improvements.

The approval is for engineering services only – construction will take place in the future.

The project area is generally described as Mace Road from Aver Road on the west to Osage Beach Parkway on the east. This project (when completed) will upgrade Mace Road from a ditched roadway to a curb and guttered roadway with an enclosed storm water system.

The intersection with Orvill Drive will also be reconstructed. Mace Road will be rehabilitated leading up to Osage Beach Parkway. No reconstruction of Osage Beach Parkway is expected with this project.

There will also be a sidewalk constructed on one side of Mace Road the entire length of the project. The sidewalk will be on the north side to tie into the Phase 1 improvements.

The roadway will be reconstructed (as much as possible) on the current alignment. Bartlett and West are currently working on Phase 1 of the project.

The city budgeted $225,000 for the project but were able to negotiate this contract for $213,000.

Services will include:
• Topographic and boundary survey
• the production of preliminary and final plans,
• development of legal descriptions for the easement acquisitions
• utility coordination, and
• Limited assistance during bidding and construction.

In other business at last week’s Board of Aldermen meeting:

• Approved the second reading of a contract with Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC to provide odor control chemicals that are fed at Tan-Tar-A, KK 1-14, Dude Ranch Road, Passover Road and Sands Pump station (New Site).
• Approved the second reading for the Osage Beach Commons Community Improvement District Cooperative Agreement.
• Approved the first reading of a change to the city code explaining how to drive through a city roundabout.
• Approved the first reading amending the city design guidelines for sidewalks and mail box placement near sidewalks.
• Approved both readings for a budget amendment for services associated with the installation of new firewalls.

“At the 11/02/2017 Board of Alderman meeting, the Board approved the purchase, configuration, and installation of some new firewalls for a total of $63,051.39,” Mike Welty, Assistant City Administrator said in his report to the board. “The firewalls were purchased in 2017, but due to changes in staff and scheduling conflicts we were unable to schedule AOS for the install and configuration until January 2018. The install and configuration portion of the service ($11,155.00) needs to be shifted to the 2018 budget through a budget amendment since the work was done in 2018 instead of 2017.”
