Memorandum DATE: November 21, 2019 TO: Alex Meyerhoff, Interim City Manager FROM: Scott Schafer, Public Works Director RE: Mr. James Parks' Concerns of Henry Beauchamp Jr. Community Center At the November 19, 2019 City Council meeting, Mr. James Parks addressed the City Council during Audience Participation to voice concern for the condition of the Henry Beauchamp Jr. Community Center (HBCC). His concerns were directed specifically to the kitchen floor, parking lot, fire alarm panel and the recent hole in the wall on the outside perimeter of the building. Below is a status report on each of the concerns: Kitchen Floor—The kitchen flooring is within the City's Five Year Capital Plan and is estimated at $12,000. Staff conducted a walk through with OIC and City Council members earlier this year as part of the proposed upgrading of the City's Community Centers. The size and layout of the kitchen was a concern. It was at that time recommended that we hold off on addressing the flooring until the new evaluation was completed. In the meanwhile, staff provided tile, glue and leveling compound and OIC staff supplied labor in repairing an area around the dishwasher. Parking Lots —The parking lots are in good shape. This spring, we will have the Streets and Sign crews address crack sealing and restriping of the lots. Cost of labor and materials is approximately $2,500 - Pictures attached. Fire Alarm Panel —The fire alarm panel is also within the City's Five Year Capital Plan. In the annual inspection this year, Mansfield Alarm found that this fire alarm panel is working but does not provide the location when activated. Mansfield Alarm has stated that they will provide the City a letter assuring that the system is working properly as well as provide a proposal for an updated fire alarm system. Staff has repeated reached out to Mansfield Alarm to obtain this letter with no response. In the meantime, staff has also contacted Inland Alarm for an estimate. Staff is estimating the cost at $40,000. Hole in Wall —a hole in the outside perimeter of the building within a planter box was caused by a careless driver on the morning of September 28, 2019. Staff just recently awarded Poppoff Construction to replace approximately 12 feet of the north planter wall. The repair cost will be $5,657 and will be funded by Risk Management Funds. .
