Mayor Al Dwyer read the Petersburg City Managers report into the record during the Petersburg City Council regular meeting Monday evening.
The City has issued a request for proposals for Radio Narrow Band Conversion.
According to City Manager Stephen Giesbrecht, the Fire, Police, Electric and Public Works Departments formulated the RFP. These proposals are due to the City by 5 p.m. Sept. 21 and the conversion must be completed by Jan. 1, 2013.
Council member Mark Jensen questioned the deadline.
“We will absolutely have problems meeting the deadline,” Public Works Director Karl Hagerman responded. “But we will do the best that we can to make sure this conversion is completed in the most timely manner possible.”
SECON workers have begun storm drain replacement and the contractor for the project will be holding a monthly meeting to report progress made on the road improvement project which is impacting downtown.
ASRC McGraw will be beginning the phase three water treatment plant upgrades and will also start working on some of the minor tasks included in the contract.
RAC projects in the Ernie Haugen Public Use Area are moving quickly forward and Rock N Road is well on the way to completing work at Wilson Creek and Banana Point. Petersburg Indian Association is working steadily at Green Camp and has made great progress on this project.
Giesbrecht noted that property taxes are due by Oct. 1 at 5 p.m., and the City has received the draft financial statements from auditors and they are currently being reviewed.
