Summary of Public Meeting Decisions - 12/3/2020

At the December 3, 2020 Mayor and Board of Aldermen Public Meeting, the Board approved the following items: 

  • An Encroachment Agreement with Las Mesas Properties, LLC for a building addition located at 100 North Market Street. The owners of this property requested an agreement to allow them to add a two-story addition over the existing two-story building. The addition will replace two top stories lost to fire several decades ago and return the building to its original four-story form.  
  • Approval of a change order to Contract 18-13 with HGS, LLC in the not-to-exceed amount of $668,522 to add restoration of a short segment of Park Branch at the Monocacy River to the existing contract. This project, involving stream bank and bed stabilization of approximately 220 linear feet of Park Branch near Monocacy Boulevard, was originally intended to be completed as part of the Monocacy Boulevard Phase 2 project. However, it was later removed from that project. City staff felt HGS would be a better contractor to complete the project given their demonstrated competence in this type of work.  
  • Approval of an Agreement with Frederick County, Maryland and the Board of Education of Frederick County, Maryland regarding funding from the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) as established under the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The City, together with Frederick County Government, will be contributing a portion of its CRF allocation to Frederick County Public Schools for technology for remote learning, food and nutrition services, personal protective equipment, reimbursement of staff for virtual learning costs, and building ventilation and air filtering costs. The City will be contributing $444,638 while the County will contribute $2,585,522.

More information on all agenda items can be found on the City website under Public Meetings/Mayor and Board of Aldermen.
