The Fort Wayne City Council meets in Committee and Regular Sessions this evening at 5:30 pm in the City Council chambers in the City-County Building.
The agendasÂwhile the ordinances up for introductionÂ .
One of the items on the agenda is the final vote on the Council’s Metro Human Relation’s Commission appointee. Â Lockwood Marine’s term is up. Â He was nominated during the last meeting (on January 25th), but the Council deadlocked due to the absence of Councilman Tim Pape. Â I cannot access my notes from that meeting to give you the name of the challenger. Â I do remember he was nominated by Councilwoman Liz Brown. Â In her comments, she stated she had nothing against Commissioner Marine, but felt a change was needed.
There are a couple of 200 East Berry Street prior approvals on the agenda:
“PRIOR APPROVAL REQUEST” the Purchasing Department Requests a Prior Approval for the purchase and installation of data cabling for the building at 200 East Berry awarded to Martell Electric at a total cost of $570,000
“PRIOR APPROVAL REQUEST” the Purchasing Department requests the purchase of network equipment for the building at 200 East Berry to be purchased from Netech Corporation of Indiana State Contract (QPA) 10120 at a total cost of $456,000
Also, it appears the City Streets Department already needs more salt:
“PRIOR APPROVAL REQUEST” the Purchasing Department requests on Behalf of the Street Department for the purchase of additional road salt. Due to repeated snow events they are requesting approval to increase the salt budget and related PO with Cargill salt by $300,000
