     Why should I have a working smoke alarm?

        A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether youre awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.

      According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.  

       If you are a homeowner and live within the city limits, the Shawnee Fire Department will install a new smoke alarm at no charge?
Call 273-4282 to schedule an appointment.
      If you rent, your landlord is responsible to provide a working smoke alarm on every floor. If you need a 9 volt battery replaced in an existing smoke alarm, this service is provided free of charge to home owners by calling 273-4282.

    AND IS NOT LONGER ACTIVE!
    5/24/2013
    CITY MANAGER’S OFFICE/BRIAN MCDOUGAL

    ENGINEERING/STREETS/TRAFFIC CONTROL/John Krywicki, Director
    (No updates this week on any of the projects)
    * Kickapoo Street Widening Project
    > ODOT awarded this project to Haskell-Lemon Construction for a total project construction cost of $10,930,517.98 (including water line costs). Work on the project is proceeding with installation of new, larger water main(s) that will be located from outside of the street paving instead of under the paving as where the existing lines are located. Water line replacement has proceeded from the Spur to north of Wall Street thus far. The existing traffic signals have been taken down from the intersections of Kickapoo & the Spur and Kickapoo & Independence, and temporary signals on span wire have been erected as the Contractor is readying the section from the Spur to Independence to be able to start actual roadway construction in that area. Project is scheduled to be completed by May of 2014
    * Airport Trails Project
    > City Commission awarded project to Bishop Paving in the amount of $633,409.90. All the asphalt is in place for the track/trail, and people are able to use the facility. The Contractor is working on the concrete replacement for driveways and ramps along the section of the track that is adjacent to Airport Drive. Also, work on backfilling the asphalt track/trail with topsoil is in progress. Anticipate construction being completed by June 2013.
    * Rehab Concrete Streets Project (FY11-12)
    > Project awarded to All Roads in the amount of $387,409.00. Work on Independence was halted on May 3, 2013, because the only sections remaining to be removed and replaced are right in front of Sequoyah Schools drives. We will wait until school is out on May 17, 2013 to have the Contractor (All Roads Paving) back onsite to have the sections of paving repaired that would result in blocking the schools driveways that they use to drop off and pick up the school children.

    * Federal Street Bridge Repair Project
    > Project awarded to PbX Corporation in the amount of $685,565. All the utilities, ie, water, ONG, and OG&E have moved their facilities from underneath the bridge deck and construction work could be started, however, we are still waiting on the BNSF to give approvals to PbX Corp to proceed. The bridge being over the railroads right-of-way gives them jurisdiction over construction and we are in need of their approval before proceeding. Contact was made with the BNSF this week and although Contractor and BNSF have executed an Agreement, the railroad (BNSF) is still holding up construction start date until their Demolition Division has approved the Contractors method of operations. Start date has now been pushed back till at least May 28, 2013.
    * Bell Street Streetscape Project (from Farrall to 7th Street)
    > Project awarded to All Roads Paving in the amount of $98,500. Project is approximately 95% completed, but has been put on-hold while Shawnee Municipal Authority (SMA) installs a water meter and vault. SMA indicates they will be completed with their work within the next 2 weeks, and we will then be able to have the Contractor complete the sidewalk portion of this project. The project also includes an enhanced crosswalk at Farrall with in-paving strobe lighting, and that is scheduled to be installed within the next two weeks. OG&E will install decorative lighting along the east side of Bell Street upon completion of the sidewalk project, and OG&E is tentatively scheduled to begin their lighting installation in four weeks.
    * ADA Sidewalk and Ramps Project
    > Project awarded to All-Roads Paving in the amount of $127,337.75. We are targeting ramps at the intersections along 10th Street from Harrison to Bell Street. Contractor has started work at the intersection of Tucker & 10th Street, and work is in progress.
    * City Hall Parking Lot Improvements
    > Project awarded to All Roads Paving in the amount of $195,235.40. Project consists of constructing a new 73 space concrete parking lot and milling/overlay the existing asphalt City Hall parking lot and alley. 90 calendar days are allotted to the project by contract, but a start date has not yet been determined. A Pre-work meeting was held and a Notice to Proceed for this project has been issued effective June 3, 2013. Contractor will start construction the week of June 3rd.
    * Main Street Streetscape Project
    > Preliminary design work has been started as time allows on this project. Project design will follow closely the design layout that was used on the Bell Street Streetscape Project. Preliminary design is approximately 80% complete. ODOT has announced that the City of Shawnee was approved for the $400,000 enhancement grant, and with funding from the Downtown TIFF District, 302 Street Fund, and SMA, the City should be in shape to have full funding for the project. A landscape architect will be employed to finalize irrigation and landscape plans, and the City may be able to advertise this project sometime Fall 2013.
