The next step in the process of creating a new Early Childhood Education facility in Sedalia will take place during today’s Sedalia City Council meeting.
A public hearing was hosted regarding the new Missouri Valley Community Action Agency facility during the June 1 council meeting. Today, council will review a resolution stating interest to seek funding through the Community Development Block Grant Program and authorizing Mayor Steve Galliher to pursue activities in an attempt to secure funding.
According to information provided in the meeting packet, MVCAA is responsible for $500,000 in local funding for the project, while the city is responsible for $75,000 in in-kind costs, which have already been covered with the donation of land near Hubbard Park.
During the pre-council meeting, Finance Director Kelvin Shaw will give the monthly financial update.
During the meeting council will also:
• Review bids for five two-yard dumpsters, 17 four-yard dumpsters, and five six-yard dumpsters. Staff recommends the second low bid of $17,480 from 8760 Service Group LLC of Sedalia.
• Review a bid of $105,019 and an ordinance approving and accepting an agreement with Poort Excavating LLC for storm drainage improvements, project areas 3, 9 and 26, which are from the storm water master plan previously approved by council. Staff recommends the Poort bid, as it was the only bid received.
