7. 16-1106 Discussion and Update of State of Illinois, Illinois Commerce Commission Stipulated Agreement 1854 for Frentress Lake Crossing Project / Mayor Welp, City Manager Barklow

  • City Manager Barklow: This is an ongoing project that has been requested by the Rail Road, as the approach grade to the rail road tracks is currently at 5%. The Rail Road requires the approach grade to be at a maximum of 1%. The Illinois Commerce Commission is also requiring that this project be completed. The design phase is near completion and the project is to begin Jan 1, 2017. The good news is that being this is a $100K plus project, the City has a max cap of $10K to pay towards it. The project is to be completed no later than June 3, 2017 and there will only be a few construction easements that will need to be obtained.


8. 16-1107 Discussion and Possible Action to Proceed with Mortimer Street Manhole Replacement Between St. Mary’s Parish and Bell Tower Retirement Center, Not to Exceed $20,000 / Mayor Welp, City Manager Barklow

  • City Manager Barklow: The manhole in the parking lot in between St. Mary’s Parish and the Bell Tower is severely eroded underneath the street. Luke Temperly of Temperly Excavating took a look at it and estimated that the cost to repair it will be $64,850.00. The details of repairs included Remove and replace manhole with 5’ Diameter Precast Storm Sewer Structure, add a new 5’ diameter drop precast storm sewer structure off the South edge of existing parking lot and replace existing 24” clay storm sewer pipe with 263’-30” ADS pipe. Travis stated that the severity of the erosion is a definite safety issue as you can see quite a ways down into the manhole and estimates that it is 18-20 feet deep. It could potentially become a sinkhole and the original estimate could become a larger amount if left go any longer. There is a lot of water that comes to this pipe, at least 8 lines connect to it. It takes 30 days to get a new manhole as well. There is an existing trench line that is visible on the road that looks to be where the main cause of concern is coming from. There are a few options to secure this area. Could possibly have the design for the infrastructure completed in 2 weeks and replace that area according to the design, but he must investigate further into the design to see exactly what ties into this pipe and what will need to be replaced.

  • Alderman Walsh: Being as the entire infrastructure of the drainage is set to be executed next year, spending $68K to fix it now seems like a waste of money being as it will be ripped out in a year. Is there something that the public works department can do in the meantime to get it by until then? The public works department doesn’t have the equipment capable of handling this kind of project. Could Luke possibly do the first part of the excavating with his equipment, then either bid out the rest of the project or have the public works department finish it?

  • Alderman Hanley: If once the project is started and they find other problems is the City obligated to repair the attached pipes? Tavis will look into the property lines and where each pipe comes from exactly. Another possibility could be to finish up the design and call an Emergency Meeting to look over the design and go from there.

  • Motion to Table made by Alderman Degenhardt, seconded by Alderman Walsh. 5 ayes, motion carried.
