Council OKs recommendations at Monday night meeting

MORRIS – Morris City Council approved, 6-1, at Monday’s meeting changes from the Parks and Annexation Committee on the Goold Park band shelter and tennis court project. Alderman Randy Larson was absent.

Mayor Richard Kopczick said that the proposal from Midwest Sport Surfaces for the surfacing of the tennis courts included provisions in the original contract from Narvick Brothers for the construction of the new courts.

The council approved a new contract with Midwest Sport Surfaces in an amount of $14,800 for the resurfacing, painting and installation of court equipment. The council also approved a change order to the Narvick Brothers’ contract to reduce the cost by $4,476, bringing the new price to $129,702.

In addition, the council approved a contract for energy savings with Total Energy Concepts for the Sewage Treatment Plants in the amount of $55,447, the Potable Water Treatment Plant in the amount of $18,407, and for Well 5 in the amount of $6,020.

The agreements are for a three-year term, with a projected energy savings of 8 percent to 11 percent, Kopczick said.

The council also approved a planning commission recommendation for conditional permitted use request at 515 Bedford Road for Jimmy John’s to build a structure that would include a drive-thru window at the location. They also approved two setback variance requests at the location.
