Our Public Works crew has had a busy month and they have done a great job keeping the streets in drivable conditions, given the amount of snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures we have experienced. We have received a fair number of calls about constant ice build-up in certain areas of the community. We are exploring all options on how best to remedy or intervene in these situations as they are all different and all deal with private property.
Contracts for Phase I – Riverfront Commons construction have been completed and are being signed. A Pre-construction meeting has been set and construction should begin in the Spring, with weather dictating how quickly the project can get underway. Construction documents for the Riverfront Commons project and Sidewalk Enhancement project are now posted online under attractions.

I met with the Northern Kentucky Area Development District and we have discussed the completion of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

We received three (3) banking bids from our RFP. I will begin to review the proposals in February and will have a report to you by the end of the month leading up to the March Council meeting.
