COLUMBUS, Ind. – The Columbus Board of Works and Public Safety tended to an array of matters at its Tuesday morning meeting.
City engineer Dave Hayward presented a number of special use of right of way requests. Most were for utility work, but one was for closing off Fifth Street, between Franklin Street and Lafayette Avenue, on Saturday, April 15, for a pride festival.
Fire Department Chief Mike Compton and Jamie Brinegar, Director of Finance, Operations, and Risk, presented a change order for placing a hallway between the two classrooms at the training facility the city maintains for first responders on the property of Columbus Municipal Airport. The total cost will be $16,895.
Scott Dompke briefed the board on an emergency repair underway at the intersection of Third and California Streets. Dompke says that the contractor performing the work, Winchester-based Cult Contracting, will mobilize on Wednesday and have the project completed on Friday. Traffic on Third Street will likely be down to one lane for some period of time.
