manage our HOPE Initiative summer jobs program and it's not to exceed 100,000. 00:01:28
Well, Perry, what is our contractual agreement? I. 00:01:35
I'm going by memory, but I thought about. 00:01:39
Two or three years ago, we had some project money leftover. 00:01:43
And we decided to route it to. 00:01:48
Summer jobs, is that not? 00:01:50
That's not not relevant. So what is our, what is our contractual arrangement? 00:01:54
Exceed 100 a 100K. What they would do is they administer the program for us on our behalf. They do the resume building the kids 00:02:01
have. 00:02:06
4 hours of educational services and then four hours of actual work. 00:02:11
Where they are placed? 00:02:15
And they're paid. 00:02:16
We actually increased the budget this year, the amount that they were received this year from $8. 00:02:18
The $13 because the reason being in doing that is because we will get kids into the program and especially post COVID. 00:02:22
They were, and I'll just use Chick-fil-A as an example. You were, they were making $8 an hour. We get them the credentials to 00:02:32
work. They were actually leave the program and go somewhere else. So we were just the competition. So we increased it this year. 00:02:37
They will actually reach out to temporary emergency service programs. They can be reached at 2:05. 00:02:45
758-5535. 00:02:50
And they will provide them with further information. Where is this advertised? Because I would. I would. 00:02:53
Not many. 00:02:57
Children are watching well once once you all approve and they signed the actual contract that they were happy to prepare Flyers 00:02:58
and on social media outlets and everywhere. 00:03:03
How many students will they be in? It will be anywhere from 45 to 55. 00:03:08
And we're we're paying them to manage this, which includes paying the students. 00:03:14
Making sure everything is met and and I will also the chosen agency is in their proposal. They will be providing funding as well 00:03:19
for additional students to to work for them. 00:03:25
Got to work for them to get more students and to get more students in last year. 00:03:31

Why? 00:03:49
Why is this not funny? 00:03:51
We're usually going community development, but due to the type of time when we actually issued the RFQ, we forgot about the actual 00:03:54

an environmental review on each project or each dollar amount that we spend. So we issued an RFQ. 00:05:14
And they were the children chosen. 00:05:22

Once the environment were actually done and whatever the finding is, we there's paperwork that we have to submit to Hood. 00:06:01
The to for to release the actual funding to Spain. 00:06:08
Now if the project is exempt, we can move forward just by getting execution by the mayor. 00:06:12

500 Zach. 00:12:44
Good afternoon, good afternoon. Yep. So what? He said. 00:12:45
This is an amendment to Garner and Associates contract for the increased scope I think we got a map to. 00:12:49
Showing where the lights are going to go or where what our current plan is for lighting. 00:12:56
Their goal? Their goal? I thought so. 00:13:02
And then anything that can Alberta has got to be going. 00:13:05
Just just look at the. 00:13:10
And this extends that. 00:13:15
To the. 00:13:17
The rest of those, yeah. So the lighting, yeah, the lighting on University Blvd. East, right there on the north side of the road. 00:13:19
Because there was just. 00:13:27
For those who I think I haven't spoken with, you know when. 00:13:29
When the state built the bridge back, they didn't. They failed putting lights on. 00:13:33
Basically, it's so dark. 00:13:37
Make a motion. 00:13:41
Moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye aye. Item number 11 is approved. Item number 12 is a discussion on the downtown Master 00:13:44
St. lighting plan. 00:13:48
What's that? 00:13:53
And this is Morgan Garner with Garner and Associates is here to. 00:13:54
Answer any questions you have about the master. 00:13:58
Sure. 00:14:01
You show us what it is. 00:14:03
This is the area downtown that they're gonna be looking at. So they're gonna do a study, go out at night. 00:14:07
See where lights are needed. 00:14:12
See what lights we have now and this will develop a plan for future developments. 00:14:14
When somebody develops. 00:14:18
Develops a lot, or we decide to put money to it. We'll know where to pull power from, what likes to put where. 00:14:20
What style would like to use all that? So it's it's a road map to develop the area. 00:14:27
I'm going. 00:14:36
Zachary. 00:14:40
This is just a plan. 00:14:43
It's got for the future for us to add. We'll know which areas to add lights, what lights to add, where to get the power for the 00:14:45
lights. 00:14:49
That kind of area. One thing you don't want to happen is have a developer come in. 00:14:53
Work on an area. 00:14:57
Put two or three St. standard lights in. 00:14:58
And put a power pedestal somewhere that that is only accommodating those two or three lights and not really taking into account 00:15:01
the entire block. 00:15:05
So that we're doing a master plan to to establish. 00:15:09
The best. 00:15:12
Location for the city owned lights or city power lights. 00:15:13
Is that a pedestal? Maybe at the corner of a block, but it feeds. 00:15:16
Multiple direction. 00:15:20
These multiple lights or? 00:15:21
I would very much like to do an after dark ride around with you. 00:15:23
When? 00:15:28
When? 00:15:28
When would be appropriate? 00:15:30
We just we'll we'll contact. 00:15:32
Get contact number. 00:15:34
Meaning we'll just we'll set up a time, would very much like to do that then I'll learn something. 00:15:36
And I will also pass on to you. 00:15:41
Some issues that I think if you're not living in there. 00:15:44
Zach, quick question after we get this plan together. 00:15:49
Would would you? 00:15:53
I mean, is it correct probably to assume then we would have a lighting budget? 00:15:55
Like over the next few years that the city would know where we want those upgraded or or would we be charging people as they're 00:15:59
doing things? 00:16:02
In the area to make sure we're meeting this this plan, I mean, well, how will this probably work when it's done? It would be up to 00:16:06
us to decide if we want to put money, if we want to go ahead and develop it ourselves and y'all want to dedicate money to do that. 00:16:11
We can move forward doing that or we can try to. 00:16:16
Make it a development thing for when somebody develops downtown that they have to put in the lights. Or, you know, we can do it 00:16:21
either way. But this will give us that plan that we can start from and it'll give us an idea of how many lights we need. 00:16:27
I think this is very, I'm sorry. I think this is very needed though and I think. 00:16:33
Councilman Busby has mentioned a lot of things about it. I've even gotten phone calls I know, Mr. Tyner said. 00:16:38
With various people, downtown is all we ever going to. 00:16:43
You know, there's too dark here. We're ever going to have a plan. I think there's a lot of people that are liking the fact that 00:16:45
we're, that we're actually going to do this because I mean downtown. 00:16:49
No offense to Mr. Busby is really kind of all of our area where we all and everybody in the city goes downtown. I think it's 00:16:53
important for it to be live and to be safe as we can make. It's a real safety issue. Absolutely. I'm sorry. 00:17:00
So another thing I wanted to ask you or for you to think about. 00:17:08
Is there some inconsistency lighting also where you've got lease lighting from Alabama Power Company or you have sitting on 00:17:11
lights? 00:17:14
So another part of the plan is to to maybe establish or ask you what you want to establish or there are certain streets that we 00:17:18
want to focus more on city standards. 00:17:21
Or do we want to add lighting in general? Where? 00:17:26
Our power company lease lights would be maybe more cost effective, but we don't have the aesthetic look where the city lights. 00:17:28
And you you may think certain Streets University Blvd. for example, Main Strip may want to be more consistent with. 00:17:36
City standard lights and some side streets, maybe just some these lights would be. 00:17:43
It just makes more sense. 00:17:48
Yeah. No, I'm glad to see you doing that other question. I would appreciate it. I don't, I don't intend to presume that I'm awake. 00:17:49
I can communicate to you. 00:17:58
Some things that you would not know unless you exist in that district. 00:18:00
Long term. 00:18:05
I could probably learn something. 00:18:07
I'm looking forward to our date. 00:18:10
Any other questions? Since this is a discussion item only, we can move to. 00:18:14
Adjourning but any other, any other business to be brought before this committee today. 00:18:22
It's not a motion to adjourn. 00:18:26
Motion, Second, Second. Any other discussion all in favor, say aye. Aye. We are adjourned. 00:18:29
Next project. 00:18:35

Once the environment were actually done and whatever the finding is, we there's paperwork that we have to submit to Hood. 00:06:01
The to for to release the actual funding to Spain. 00:06:08
Now if the project is exempt, we can move forward just by getting execution by the mayor. 00:06:12

500 Zach. 00:12:44
Good afternoon, good afternoon. Yep. So what? He said. 00:12:45
This is an amendment to Garner and Associates contract for the increased scope I think we got a map to. 00:12:49
Showing where the lights are going to go or where what our current plan is for lighting. 00:12:56
Their goal? Their goal? I thought so. 00:13:02
And then anything that can Alberta has got to be going. 00:13:05
Just just look at the. 00:13:10
And this extends that. 00:13:15
To the. 00:13:17
The rest of those, yeah. So the lighting, yeah, the lighting on University Blvd. East, right there on the north side of the road. 00:13:19
Because there was just. 00:13:27
For those who I think I haven't spoken with, you know when. 00:13:29
When the state built the bridge back, they didn't. They failed putting lights on. 00:13:33
Basically, it's so dark. 00:13:37
Make a motion. 00:13:41
Moved and seconded. All in favor, say aye aye. Item number 11 is approved. Item number 12 is a discussion on the downtown Master 00:13:44
St. lighting plan. 00:13:48
What's that? 00:13:53
And this is Morgan Garner with Garner and Associates is here to. 00:13:54
Answer any questions you have about the master. 00:13:58
Sure. 00:14:01
You show us what it is. 00:14:03
This is the area downtown that they're gonna be looking at. So they're gonna do a study, go out at night. 00:14:07
See where lights are needed. 00:14:12
See what lights we have now and this will develop a plan for future developments. 00:14:14
When somebody develops. 00:14:18
Develops a lot, or we decide to put money to it. We'll know where to pull power from, what likes to put where. 00:14:20
What style would like to use all that? So it's it's a road map to develop the area. 00:14:27
I'm going. 00:14:36
Zachary. 00:14:40
This is just a plan. 00:14:43
It's got for the future for us to add. We'll know which areas to add lights, what lights to add, where to get the power for the 00:14:45
lights. 00:14:49
That kind of area. One thing you don't want to happen is have a developer come in. 00:14:53
Work on an area. 00:14:57
Put two or three St. standard lights in. 00:14:58
And put a power pedestal somewhere that that is only accommodating those two or three lights and not really taking into account 00:15:01
the entire block. 00:15:05
So that we're doing a master plan to to establish. 00:15:09
The best. 00:15:12
Location for the city owned lights or city power lights. 00:15:13
Is that a pedestal? Maybe at the corner of a block, but it feeds. 00:15:16
Multiple direction. 00:15:20
These multiple lights or? 00:15:21
I would very much like to do an after dark ride around with you. 00:15:23
When? 00:15:28
When? 00:15:28
When would be appropriate? 00:15:30
We just we'll we'll contact. 00:15:32
Get contact number. 00:15:34
Meaning we'll just we'll set up a time, would very much like to do that then I'll learn something. 00:15:36
And I will also pass on to you. 00:15:41
Some issues that I think if you're not living in there. 00:15:44
Zach, quick question after we get this plan together. 00:15:49
Would would you? 00:15:53
I mean, is it correct probably to assume then we would have a lighting budget? 00:15:55
Like over the next few years that the city would know where we want those upgraded or or would we be charging people as they're 00:15:59
doing things? 00:16:02
In the area to make sure we're meeting this this plan, I mean, well, how will this probably work when it's done? It would be up to 00:16:06
us to decide if we want to put money, if we want to go ahead and develop it ourselves and y'all want to dedicate money to do that. 00:16:11
We can move forward doing that or we can try to. 00:16:16
Make it a development thing for when somebody develops downtown that they have to put in the lights. Or, you know, we can do it 00:16:21
either way. But this will give us that plan that we can start from and it'll give us an idea of how many lights we need. 00:16:27
I think this is very, I'm sorry. I think this is very needed though and I think. 00:16:33
Councilman Busby has mentioned a lot of things about it. I've even gotten phone calls I know, Mr. Tyner said. 00:16:38
With various people, downtown is all we ever going to. 00:16:43
You know, there's too dark here. We're ever going to have a plan. I think there's a lot of people that are liking the fact that 00:16:45
we're, that we're actually going to do this because I mean downtown. 00:16:49
No offense to Mr. Busby is really kind of all of our area where we all and everybody in the city goes downtown. I think it's 00:16:53
important for it to be live and to be safe as we can make. It's a real safety issue. Absolutely. I'm sorry. 00:17:00
So another thing I wanted to ask you or for you to think about. 00:17:08
Is there some inconsistency lighting also where you've got lease lighting from Alabama Power Company or you have sitting on 00:17:11
lights? 00:17:14
So another part of the plan is to to maybe establish or ask you what you want to establish or there are certain streets that we 00:17:18
want to focus more on city standards. 00:17:21
Or do we want to add lighting in general? Where? 00:17:26
Our power company lease lights would be maybe more cost effective, but we don't have the aesthetic look where the city lights. 00:17:28
And you you may think certain Streets University Blvd. for example, Main Strip may want to be more consistent with. 00:17:36
City standard lights and some side streets, maybe just some these lights would be. 00:17:43
It just makes more sense. 00:17:48
Yeah. No, I'm glad to see you doing that other question. I would appreciate it. I don't, I don't intend to presume that I'm awake. 00:17:49
I can communicate to you. 00:17:58
Some things that you would not know unless you exist in that district. 00:18:00
Long term. 00:18:05
I could probably learn something. 00:18:07
I'm looking forward to our date. 00:18:10
Any other questions? Since this is a discussion item only, we can move to. 00:18:14
Adjourning but any other, any other business to be brought before this committee today. 00:18:22
It's not a motion to adjourn. 00:18:26
Motion, Second, Second. Any other discussion all in favor, say aye. Aye. We are adjourned. 00:18:29
Next project. 00:18:35
