CLINTON — The Clinton City Council will hold seven public hearings tonight on topics ranging from street and sewer projects to adopting an interim building code.

The first two public hearings to be held are in regard to plans, specifications, form of contract and estimate of costs for the North Ninth Street Sewer Extension Project and the Woodland Drive/Worth Court Street Rehabilitation Project. According to a resolution for the sewer extension project, the city received two bids and is set to award the contract to Clinton Engineering for $94,994. The street rehabilitation project received one bid and the contract is set to be awarded to Clinton Engineering in the amount of $149,285. The project is being paid for through Road Use Tax funds and bonding.

Three additional public hearings will concern the adoption of an interim Clinton Building Code, adoption by reference the State of Iowa Building Code and adoption by reference of the 2000 Uniform Plumbing Code or the 2006 International Plumbing Code. If approved by the council following the public hearing, one ordinance would add a new chapter to the City Code of Ordinances adopting the 2007 Iowa State Building Code until the end of June 30, 2008, which will apply only to buildings and structures that would have otherwise been subject to the state building code. A second ordinance could amend the code of ordinances by adopting portions of model building codes adopted by the 2007 Iowa State Building Code to be effective July 1, 2008. The codes include the 2006 International Building Code, 2006 International Mechanical Code, 2005 National Electrical Code, 2006 International Residential Code, 2006 International Existing Building Code and 2006 International Energy Conservation Code. A third ordinance would adopt either the 2000 Uniform Plumbing Code or the 2006 International Plumbing Code to be effective July 1, 2008.

The final two public hearings will concern amendments to zoning regulations and the rezoning of Tract Four in Mill Creek Crossing.

The council also may take action on resolutions:

• accepting the annual financial and audit report for fiscal year 2005-2006.

• ordering repair/demolition of a house and garage at 655 Sixth Ave. South.

• adopting salary ranges and non-union salaries for the 2007-2008 fiscal year.

• removing a “no parking” restriction on South First Street from Sixth Avenue South to the south end of the Clinton County Historical Society building.

• awarding a contract for South 18th Street Roadway Improvements Project to Tschiggfrie Excavating Company for $823,650.50.

• declaring city property a park and naming it “South Clinton Park,” and

• approving the mayor’s appointments to boards and commissions.

During the Committee of the Whole meeting, the council will hear updates on the Clinton Municipal/Industrial Training Facility, the city’s street repair program and the status of the RISE Grant Reimbursement for the Mill Creek Parkway. The City Council also will recap information discussed at the public information meeting regarding the building code, hear the city administrator’s report and discuss pigeon and deer complaints.
