Resolution No. 58-2017.  A Resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into an agreement by 
and between the City of Monroe and The Kleingers Group for professional surveying services to 
proceed with the Great Miami Trail Alignment. (Second Reading)

Background.  We are requesting that the Council pass the second reading as an emergency so that we 
can begin work on the project.  We have received indication from both the Miami Conservancy 
District and Butler County Metro Parks that they are willing to help fund this project at $5,000
apiece.  We will have future legislation accepting those amounts from each group.

Regular Meeting of Council
November 28, 2017 – 6:30 p.m.
233 South Main Street, Monroe, Ohio


More details:
Kevin Chesar, city development director, told council that it will take five to seven years to get all of the funding in place for the project, which he estimated will cost about $1.3 million. He also said the city will need to get the Americana property in shape for public use as there are some dilapidated buildings that need removed for safety reasons.

Mayor Robert Routson said he would like to see something done within the next two years to show residents that progress is being made.

Vice Mayor Suzi Rubin said there are volunteers with various trail organizations that might be able to assist with clearing brush along the trail route. She added that putting in gravel along the trail for people to use could cost an estimated $70,000 to $100,000.
