CALL FOR BIDS:
Water main replacement on Ramsdell
Water main improvements are planned along Ramsdell from Contra Costa to Forest Park Drive. This project is out to bid, with the bid opening scheduled for January 30, 2018. Construction should take place hopefully beginning in early March. This project is being funded with the City’s water capital improvement funds.
Fall and Winter
Fall and winter have arrived and at Public Works that means keeping the roads and storm systems clear and clean. It would be most helpful if the residents assisted us in keeping the leaves off of the storm grates and not blowing or throwing debris into the streets as this tends to be the biggest cause of flooding. Out street sweeper will be out to try to keep up with the fall debris.
As it gets colder, we may get some ice and snow and we will then be deicing the streets and following our snow removal schedule as we have done in the past years.
As always if you have questions or need to report any problem areas, please give us a call at 253-564-8900. If you call after hours this will go to an answering service and it will report the problem.
