The Madison City Commission will review a memo provided by City Engineer Chad Comes regarding a potential capital call vote under consideration by Lewis & Clark pipeline supporters when it meets at 5:30 p.m. on Monday at City Hall.
Comes, also a board member of the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System, has provided information about a possible request from LCRWS officials to have member communities provide additional funds. The added money would support continued construction of the Missouri River water pipeline.
The LCRWS project currently depends on federal funding that has slowed to a trickle compared to the annual construction costs of the pipeline project. Pipeline officials have already spent the local and state funding shares to complete 65 percent of the construction.
A the end of the meeting, the commissioners will also announce that federal state and local agencies will conduct assessments and surveys of insurable structures in Madison during the week of Oct. 28.
In other business, the commissioners will consider:
-- Acknowledging the sidewalk committee recommendations for 2014.
-- Acknowledging a Safe Routes to School grant award and authorizing the mayor to sign a related agreement with the state Department of Transportation.
-- Hearing the first reading of a new ordinance regarding speed limits in school zones.
-- Approving the specifications and bid date for emissions compliance material needed for the municipal generation plant.
-- Approving the purchase of a new city police patrol vehicle.
