Council meeting, Dec. 4
On Tuesday, the Wilmington City Council will meet at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. Items of interest on the agenda included:
- APPROVED. A resolution authorizing a one-year extension of the city’s parking management contract with Lanier Parking, who operates the city’s parking program. This amendment will begin on Feb. 1, 2019 for a total contract price of $1,447,419.
- APPROVED. A resolution awarding a three-year contract extension to the Thalian Association for management of the Hannah Block Historic/USO Community Arts Center.
- APPROVED. A resolution awarding a $592,864 contract to repair and replace broken or cracked sidewalks in various sections of the city. The contract also includes the construction of new handicapped accessible curb ramps.
- APPROVED. Several related items requesting additional funding to cover final estimated costs of debris removal and repairs to buildings caused by Hurricane Florence. This request of $2,919,416 is in addition to the previously approved appropriations totaling $21 million. If approved, total costs from the hurricane would total almost $25 million, mostly for storm debris removal. The federal government reimburses up to 75 percent of eligible costs and the city expects much of this to be reimbursed within the next two years.
