Preparing for the Case …

Today I was informed by one of our Public Works inspectors that last evening (Thur 4/15) around 7:30pm a Marco Island Police officer pulled up to the water main construction on Winterberry (see attached email) and asked if there was a permit to be doing this work. The officer was told yes by our City inspector. When asked if he was informed about the scheduled construction, the officer replied that he knew nothing about it.

Besides the fact that this work was noticed to staff in advance, there were at least 6 clearly marked City of Marco Island Utility vehicles parked along Winterberry Dr.

While I can understand the officer stopping to question what was going on, and how much longer the work would take, I'm not really sure why the officer had to question City workers about a permit.

To my knowledge there were no complaints or traffic issues other than the occasional road blockage by the construction crew which was being handled by their staff. Work was completed about 8pm just as it was getting dark.

The reason I'm mentioning this at all is because we are just starting this year's sewer projects in the East Winterberry and Gulfport/San Marco Rd areas, and work typically runs from 7am to 7pm Mon- Sat. Every so often there is an occasional "late evening" overrun. I would hope that our police officers would be aware of this typical construction schedule, and rather than question the validity work being done under City supervision, instead perhaps offer to help, from a traffic perspective, after dark if work-loads allow.

Please call to discuss when you have time.

Attention Staff,

On Thursday 4/15, the City sewer contractor will be conducting 3 water main replacements across the intersections of Pheasant & Winterberry, Persian & Winterberry and Capri & Winterberry, between 9am & 8pm. This work will require temporary closure of each street to remove and install the new water main. The contractor will attempt to minimize the closure time and keep at least partial access open for neighborhood traffic.

In addition, traffic along Winterberry Dr in this area is being asked to slow down to 25 mph for safety reasons via message board.

Call me if you have any questions.
