No action expected in electric contract discussion

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, June 15, 2013

A closed-door discussion on the amount of time left on the city of Bridgeport’s wholesale electric contract is designed simply to bring the council’s newest members up to date, Mayor Keith McComis said.

He does not anticipate any action coming out of the session.

The executive session is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, a half-hour prior to the city council’s regular meeting time at City Hall.

During the public portion of the meeting, the council will review payment request No. 7 and the final retention invoice from Siemens Inc. for performance contracting before it considers increasing the contract amount by $42,446 as a result of water meter reconciliation.

Officials will also hear an expenditures report from the Main Street department and consider renaming Doctors Hospital Drive to Hospital Drive.

The council will also consider amendments to a few ordinances including solicitation regulations, health and sanitation policy to prohibit rummaging through garbage containers, and permit fees for building swimming pools and hot tubs/spas.

During the workshop, officials will continue discussing establishing a recreation center and installing security lighting at East Side Cemetery. They will also talk about mosquito spraying within the city.
