The Public Works Committee approved:

  • Renewing agreements with contractors for operating HERC, disposing ash, recycling metal, and recovering steam through 2033. The resolution specifies that the county may terminate the contracts earlier if the state Legislature or county board closes HERC before 2033.
  • The selection of HDR Engineering to design for multi-modal improvements on Park Ave and Portland Ave in two sections: between the Midtown Greenway and 18th Street, and 38th and 42nd Streets. The project will include protected bike lanes and “safety and accessibility improvements,” according to the agenda attachment.
  • Authorizing staff to apply for federal grants through the 2024 RAISE program for projects on West Broadway Ave and Washington Ave.

The Administration, Operations, and Budget Committee approved the appointments for the Library Board and Race Equity Advisory Council (REAC) Board to progress to the February 6, 2024 Board meeting.

The Intergovernmental Committee approved staff’s proposed changes to the 2024 Federal Legislative Platform.
