  • Boards and Commissions: The Council will vote whether or not to appoint Richard Duffy to the Elections Commission and reappoint J. Martin Shanahan to the Citizens Advisory Council.
  • Rand Whitney Expansion: The Council will vote whether or not to grant 2 easements to Rand Whitney Container as part of that company’s “$20M expansion project at 207 Greenwood Street and 1 Agrand Street.”
  • Street Sweeping: The Manager reports that street sweeping will soon resume. “The Arterial Sweeping Program will begin on Monday, April 2, 2018. Street sweepers will work from 11:30pm to 7:30am Monday through Friday and will sweep major arterial streets throughout the city. We anticipate that it will take up to three (3) weeks to complete street sweeping on major arterial streets. The Residential Spring Sweeping Program will begin on Monday, April 9, 2018, weather permitting and will take 10-12 weeks to complete. Property owners of both, residences and businesses are asked to assist us by cleaning their sidewalks in advance of the street sweepers. The residential street sweeping schedule follows the trash collection routes with sweepers working 7:30am – 4:00pm daily Monday through Friday. Crews will start in the Friday trash collection area and then progress to the Thursday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday areas.”
  • Replacing South: Held over from last week, the Council will vote on a $194,646,240 plan to build “a replacement South High Community School at 170 Apricot Street, to include the demolition and environmental remediation of the existing school.”
