Manchester City Council Meeting Recap

The Manchester City Council met Monday night, holding a public hearing on the proposed contract documents and estimated costs for the proposed Grayson Court and Oakview Estates Lift Station Project. City Manager Tim Vick explains.

No one spoke for or against the project at the public hearing, with the Council approving the plans. Five bids came in for the project, with Top Grade Excavating the lowest bidder at $348,385.

The City Council also approved awarding contracts for snow removal to Mark Fink, who was the lowest bidder. City sidewalk snow removal will cost $440 per time, with nuisance sidewalk snow removal costing $50 per sidewalk for residents who don’t remove their snow.


The City Council has also given approval for Fehr Graham to make an addendum to the existing Engineering Services agreement for the 2022 Street Improvement Project.

And the City Council says it’s okay for ATVs and UTVs to travel to and from the Manchester Window Walk with the purpose of being in the Static Christmas Parade. The local ATV/UTV Club has requested permission to operate on city streets after dusk and be in the downtown area on Thursday night, December 2nd. The club plans to decorate up to five UTVs and place them in the static parade. The club members live in Manchester and would be running the UTVs from their property to the downtown to set up and then back home after the event.

The Manchester City Council also approved a quote from Price Electric of nearly $13,500 to upgrade the traffic signals to LEDs at the intersection of Main Street and Madison Street. It’s the last intersection with traffic lights that are still using incandescent bulbs.
