  DPW UPDATE - 9/08/14


Roadway blacktopping report – Approx. 50% of the total mileage is complete. 32 roads of 57 scheduled for 2014 are blacktopped 56%; new culvert crossings are installed on all scheduled roads.


WPSO air conditioning – A contract to repair the 60-ton Chiller is issued; Morgan’s Mechanical Services is low proposer for the project. Note a rental unit is in place to keep the WPSO administrative offices and jail air conditioned during the interim; new unit will be available for delivery on or about November 8 – it takes 8 weeks to manufacture unit to specifications.


DOTD Road Transfer Program – Parish roads (Choctaw & Dummyline) were surveyed; subsequent to studying the core samples taken by the DOTD, construction cost estimates were re-evaluated; as a result the estimated cost to repair parish roads totals $ 1,015,460.00 - which will leave a credit of   $ 368,306.00 for additional roadway improvements under this Transfer Program. It appears that a cost savings over the original DOTD estimates will be realized. This information is written into a resolution and Cooperative Endeavor Agreement approved by Parish Council on November 25; signed documents from DOTD are pending.


Courthouse and Parish Administration Building - the installation of the security screens is 95% complete; re-fabrication of some screen details is pending; total job completion is scheduled for September 25; if there are any questions regarding operational instructions please call my office.
